Free Damarius Bilbo!

Besides having the best name in the receiving corps, the guy is a terrific athlete. I've always felt that the fact we haven't been able to utilize his prodigeous physical skills at all in the time he's been at Tech has been one of the bigger failings of the current staff. I know he didn't work out as a QB, and then last year was learing to play WR behind a pretty solid collection of talent on the depth chart. So this year, I was thrilled to see him catch a few balls at Auburn and looks to be much more involved in the offense.

I'm starting the official "Free Damarius Bilbo!" fanclub, and will be keeping a running tally of his stats for the season here on the site. Hopefully we can see him getting his hands on the ball in the passing game, and would it hurt so much to let him return kicks? It's not like we've got anyone else setting the world on fire and he's probably the best option we've got. I know WR isn't very deep and they don't want to risk injury, but can't you see him running through an arm tackle and taking a punt to the house this season?

Last game (@AU): 2 catches for 21 yards
Season: 2 catches for 21 yards
