Chapter one in today’s Dawg Porn installment: Jonathan Rumph.
… We’re now to that point with Jonathon Rumph this spring, after a six-catch, 62-yard scrimmage Saturday, where teammates are raving about him, fans are getting excited and coaches, well, they’re still kind of putting the brakes to it. To understand Ball (or Mike Bobo, really) is to know he is a highly demanding coach. There are things receivers have to know and do to play for him, and he has proven that he doesn’t really care if someone is a walk-on, a five-star or a 6-foot-5, 225-pound specimen now entering his senior season. This is a dynamic that will carry into the fall. While Rumph isn’t there yet, there have been signs this spring that he’s getting much closer to being an impact contributor on this offense.
