Josh Smith played this year if you can call that playing. He was on the field. He can't catch so the defense does not have to account for him. He just took up a spot when he was in the game. We were playing 11 on 10.

Sutton and North are 'real deal' players. The game is not too big for them as true freshmen. Not so much with the rest of them including Dobbs. Smith has everything to be an excellent receiver except the ability to catch the pass evidently. That is all mental. In HS he caught everything within a mile of him and he can deep better than anybody on the current roster. So the game has been too big for him this year. As he matures that may totally turn around as it did with Z-Ro. Everybody got down on him and he performed better than the stars at times his senior season.
