So, he's 30 ft tall or was in in the 2nd row, I am confused?
- God Bless Texas
Too bad hes as dumb as the football he catches or he would be a longhorn.
Also I watched the highlights of thier spring game, they looked meh and by that I mean slow and a little small for the ou team i'm used to seeing.
Dont insult the pigskin like that.
Looks like a potential matchup with Byndom. TM is a starter and is being groomed for a huge role in our offense. He is actually going to take snaps away from a veteran receiver whoever it may be.
There isn't any questions of his work ethic as all reports say he is an animal with conditioning, and you can't ask too much of him. Adrian Peterson was like that.
The video clips of his catches today were legit. I expect him to be a factor immediately and certainly by the RRS. Byndom is seasoned and really sound. Looking forward to that matchup.
Byndom or Diggs is gonna take a dump on him. Hopefully, they won't try to help him up.
Wonder how long he will remain eligible? Although we are talking about ou...
Not so sure. He's a good player now. He'll be great by the time he leaves OU.
And your point is? Diggs and Byndom are both studs. Much better at their respective positions than unproven WR.
It's not a knock on Metoyer that he hasn't played. Everyone including Diggs has to earn the opportunity to get on the field. Like Diggs last year, Metoyer is going to play right away.
I don't see Diggs on TM, because giving up 6" to a guy as physical as TM probably isnt something that Diaz wants to flirt with.

A.) Not sure where you got 6" from. Double check your math.
B.) Why dont we wait until the kid plays a down to see how 'physical' he is. Besides Q is 205 lbs not many, if recievers in the country are going to out-physical him.
Re-read your last paragraph and tell me if it makes any sense at all. I'm not trying to be a dick but I honestly don't understand what you were trying to say.
I don't understand what you don't understand. Do you think Diggs draws Metoyer? I figure Diggs at 5'8" and Metoyer at 6'2". Do you think Diaz will choose that matchup over Byndom?
Damn, I was unaware the Q shrunk that much. Weird.
Oh there is no need to wait and see if he is physical. That's like having to wait and see if Adrian Peterson was physical as a true freshman. Anyone who questioned his impact as a true freshman didn't know him very well. Do you not know Metoyer very well?
In a game settIng yesterday against veteran DBs, he had a great physical day.
I remember very well that Horns here last year had no doubt the impact Jaxon Shipley would have as a true freshman. Well, Sooners have no doubt the impact Metoyer will have this season.
Last year Diggs was noticeably shorter than Kenny Stills. Stills isn't 6'.
Metoyer is tall and long. You think Diggs matches up with him height wise?
Well I'm sold.....
Stills is listed at 6'1 man and Diggs is 5'10 not 5'8. Come correct or don't come at all.
Quandre the Giant defends bigger receiver better than small receivers, he's probably 5'9"
Well he did fine against Blackmon last year who was what 6' 1"?
XoGisele, Ashley Sky, Niki Skyler
Maybe he is 5'9". After watching some '11 RRS, Diggs was shorter than Broyles who might be 5'10". When Diggs gave up the 3rd and 25 pass to Jaz Reynolds, Reynolds was considerably bigger than Diggs. It was a mismatch.
Metoyer vs Diggs will be a mismatch that Diaz will likely avoid. I see Vacarro drawing him but maybe Byndom some too.
