I really wished they would have used the same standards for Costa LAST YEAR. Whoever thought he could start should have been run right out of Valley Ranch.
That's hyperbole. They may not have a D1 level weight room, but it's a weight room.
If he was self motivated, he could have done himself a lot of good, I just don't think he was. He faced poor competition both on the field and in practice and probably was one of the stronger guys on the team, so why push it?
Clay Harbor came out of the same program and he was well ahead of Arkin physically.
We need wins, and that's all we need. I don't give a damn about anyone on this roster over wins. I'd trade Ware, Lee and Dez if it meant more wins.
