Reports have been that Star looks tired, out of shape, and Amini completely dominated him a few days ago at practice. 

 

 

 

Haven't heard all that much from Short besides a few tweets saying that he looks good and explosive.

I didnt hear that star was out of shape, just that he's adjusting to the speed. And I can't remember if it was sunday or saturday but zod tweeted that star actually got the better of Amini that day. I'm not sure that means much at this point but we'll see how star has adjusted come preseason.

Since Short is my N°1 rookie i am happy to read good things about him.

I am not worried with Star he will be ready in time.

I'm more worried about the o-line than I am about kawann and star.

I can tell you that the d-line was getting a really good push when the pads went on yesterday morning and I'm sure both Star and KK had a lot to do with that.... there was absolutely no room for Cam to step up in the pocket.

I think, and maybe its been stated before, that K. Short is Kris Jenkins 2.0 without the over eating!!!! 

Short had a weight issue most of his life. He got under 300 around the combine for the first time since he was in middle school. So, that might not be exactly true. 

 

Not that I am saying it's a problem.

I have never read Short has had a weight issue. Purdue had asked him to play 320 and over 90% of the snaps. He feels most comfortable around 300.

 

You might be thinking of Kugbila with weight issues.

I'm sorry you haven't read it. The subject of his playing weight is in just about every article about him. 

 

Here's one.

I am aware, but I don't see how he has had problems "maintaining" his weight when he has been asked to play heavy. That is inferring he has a problem when he obviously doesn't.

 

Read and watched several interviews with kk where he states Purdue asked him to play a certain weight, he did, but he feels most comfortable with around 300.

 

And that NFP article is retarded. It is assbackwards to everything we will be asking KK to do.  Now if you are talking about them coming into college and being overweight then yes, both kk and Star were, but it is wrong if you said they have had problems maintaining their weight when their respective programs asked them to play at a certain weight and they did.

Don't expect Star to make the highlight reels.  NTs are often buried by the offense.  UTs get to shine more.
