SIDNEY RICE NOW NO. 18; CAN WE HAVE HIM BACK?
The Herald-Journal runs a soft piece on Sidney Rice going to the NFL.
"The game is a lot faster. You got to know what you're doing out there," Rice said. "You got to know the plays." [C&F: One would think that would hold true in college, too.] ...
In the workouts so far, he said the biggest difference is speed.
"(The players) are just faster, not so much a lot bigger … just faster," Rice said. "I'm working on the same things as everybody else. I'm just trying to get on the field."
After wearing No. 4 for the Gamecocks, Rice chose No. 18 with Minnesota because "he liked it the best of all the numbers available."
The piece also notes that, as of yet, Rice has not signed a contract. Does the agent thing still screw up his eligibility?
Come back, Sidney. Come back.
