GOOD JOB DARRELL!!! I am not sure if you read these posts, but I am one of the fans who will really miss you when you leave.

Stuckey is by far the best DB KU has, but he is NOT in this class. Think of Talib and Gordon long before Stuckey. He is BY FAR the best KU has as a DB, but then KU has one of the most porous secondary's in Divison I.

If he was completely healthy this year, I think we would be seeing the same Darrell that single handedly took out Booger Daniel at Camarohead.

Also, like someone said, he has to worry about the other dbs doing their job.

FlaHawk you are so very wrong about Stuckey. He is easily in this class. He is a fantastic safety. He has great size, speed, awareness and everything. He may not be the best in the nation or anything but he is one of them. He cannot do everything himself and sometimes he looks bad but in the end he is still a fantastic safety.

The Defense is a.k.a. stuck-and-the-MUD (Mediocre Under Developed).

If Darrell had just an average defense around him, he would be one of the best in the nation. As it is, he is the one guy most every game who steps up and does as much as 1 in 11 can to keep it together out there. I really hope the terrible quality of our defense doesn't kill his chances of a pro career.
