    Anyone see Jordan Peterson chase down the Mizzou WR and knock the ball out of his hands preventing a touchdown. A great play...Don Beebesque.[​IMG]

    Peterson was a lock down corner all game. He deflected two passes and only gave up one reception for 7 yards, not to mention the defensive play of the game you guys mentioned. That was his best game in his young career.

    Here is the play Peterson made against Mizzou chasing down the receiver and knocking the ball loose. White cornerbacks can run fast!

    Good job Stve B--I finally saw the play--even though I watched most of the game. Peterson looks like a good one the few times I have seen him this year.

    DraftDaddy has a blurb on a white safety who i haven't seen play, Troy's Brannon Condren.

    it seems he's another walk-on who fought for what he deserved and overcame the odds... link

    a new DB to watch is Hawaii's Jacob Patek. he has siezed the starting strong safety spot, and is already impressing.

    Jordan Peterson had a late INT that clinched the game for Texas A&M against Baylor.

    SteveB how's the Texas media treating Jordan. I mean becuase up here in Ohio when Fox was first starting to play CB and maybe gave up a couple of b.s. passes like all CBs do the media was all over the coaching staff. They were always asking Tressel and co.: Is Fox going to be moved to safety? Why is Fox playing CB? Just wondering if their giving Jordan a short leesh to work on as well.

    After the Texas Tech game where Jordan gave up the game winning TD pass, just about every question from the press was about Jordan and his ability to play CB. Then his great play in the Missouri game where he ran down the WR and knocked the ball loose, preventing a TD, shut up the critics. I haven't seen too much criticism of him since then. He has played well in the last three games.

    good news out of BYU. there's a strong possibility the Cougars will start two white corners next year...
