    Manu Tuiasosopo has got to be on the all time all name list for Bruin Football players. His name brings back memories of the Icki La Boomba cheer.

    Tyler gets reps but Ossar doesn’t?

    Ossar has impressed me. Not sure why he isn’t given more of a chance. One has to think that Chow has his reasons.

    Are you serious? Exactly what that Ossar has done has impressed you? There’s a reason why he hasn’t gotten any reps. Actually, maybe at least five of them. They would be the QB’s ahead of him on the depth chart. He has no arm, no accuracy, and looks like a chicken running around with his head cut off out there. Your next job will obviously not be Football related. I could only see him plaaying in draw/ option/ reverse/ run type situations where his speed would be an asset. Maybe some type of reverse or pitch pass type trick play tops, a la Freddie Mitchell. Ossar needs to face reality and realize he will never be a QB. He needs to look at Drew Bennett as a great example. They both will NEVER be NFL QB’s. Like Drew he might have a chance as a WR though. I hope he wises up and reconsiders. I would hate for his talent to be wasted like Drew’s was at UCLA.

    Osaar actually has a strong arm, very strong. Just ask anyone that’s caught one of his fast pitches. Although, the depth chart is exactly how I would have made it; with Pat being the original starter. Osaar just has horrible decision making skills and bad accuracy.

    tyler was one of the most underrated quarterbacks in washington. if he would have really good recievers, he would’ve won the state( he was in playoffs 3 years, one year thay lost to state champs by 1 pt)but he was in high school that was based on running game. so he couldnt show much of his game
