LOL!

I'm sure Connor will get some tutoring along the way in the communication arts area. Besides, we didn't recruit him to sound good OFF the field, now did we?! What he does ON the field is magic... that's what counts.

Hopefully he's impressed enough not to transfer.
Let's go, Brandon!

The smile when asked if he's ready should his number be called is telling along with the "they're here to see a show put on and that's what I do". The kid just exudes confidence and swagger. Can't wait to see him get on the field. Hopefully our coaches let him have his show before he transfers and is a star elsewhere.

Thank god we weren't all judged by our speaking abilities when we were 18. It's a natural maturity process. They all improve. That being said, he sounded fine to me.

On this topic, I've been saying since NIL first began and we started seeing paid promotions by college athletes that these companies paying them need to also invest in getting them communication and speech training. Some of the NIL social media promotions I've seen have been so cringe worthy that I'd be annoyed if I was the company that paid them. It's as if they tell them "Hey go post on instagram of you talking about you like Canes" but provide them no professional guidance or marketing skills to create the post/ad. I think in the years to come you're going to see a market for this emerge with communication agencies working with top college athletes on their NIL promotions.

Saw him listening in on the pow wow's Jimbo would have with the offense on Saturday night. Not sure if that means he's officially QB2, or, is trying to soak in as much as he can, but it was certainly nice to see.
