Aloha! Thank you for all the positive feedback in regards to yesterdays write up. It was a lot of fun and created some good dialogue about what type of players the Hawks might look for, and where we'd want them as far as draft value. While I can't create a write up for every day, I will be making them more of a regular thing here on C&C. It was suggested yesterday that I look into FB Dan Vitale out of Northwestern, which I will, but again I am very open to any other suggestions. As a result of our the time difference, this posts at 1:00 AM my time, so while many of you are up and commenting, I am fast asleep. So, if I don't respond to your questions or requests as quickly as you'd like, it's because haven't read them quite yet. I do read over all comments (y'all are a funny group, by the way), so know that any ideas or suggestions you have for future posts are noted eventually. Enjoy reading, hope everyone has a great day!
And now...to the links!
