Bowden Discusses Several Players

Tommy Bowden has never been on to be short of words and is very quick with the jokes, but at other times he can be very serious. Here are some of his remarks on a wide range of topics Wednesday.

On freshman Kyle Parker, who is having a really good season with the baseball team:
"I've watched him practice and I've watched him play (baseball). He's really good looking. If I was a girl, I'd be very interested in him. He wears those tight pants. When you wear loose stuff, you can't tell the definition of a guy's body. In baseball, everything's tight and you can tell he's very well put together."

On starting left guard David Smith, a redshirt freshman:
"He's not real good on assignments, but he's a tough guy and fights and plays hard. You'll take a guy that gives good effort. He's got a high motor. Mason Cloy's the same way."

On start freshman defensive end Da'Quan Bowers:
"He continues to make more plays every day. He's having a pretty good spring."

On rising redshirt freshman receiver Brandon Clear:
"He's been catching (my eye) for not doing the right things until today. He had a touchdown catch today on a fade pass. He used all 6-foot-5 of him over a corner on a beautiful thrown ball by Korn.

"That's really the first time he's (done anything). He's struggled a little bit learning his assignments. He's a redshirt freshman, but he needs to be a little more tentative. But he surely has the skills."

On rising redshirt sophomore punter Richard Jackson:
"We gave Richard a chance today to really make a move on Jimmy Maners and he didn't capture the moment. But of course, Maners didn't jump out at you, either. He didn't lose any ground, but he didn't gain any, either." Top Stories
