Mike Glennon Profiled in N&O

Full article here. Like Glennon and his family, I think Dana Bible’s offense is a natural fit. I am very excited to see him perform behind what I expect to be a very good offensive line.

People always remember how the Hokie faithful famously didn’t much care for Sean Glennon. But, as you can see, Sean put up pretty solid numbers in an offense where he was the proverbial square peg. Additionally, the consensus opinion listed little brother Mike as a higher caliber college/pro prospect. There are no guarantees in life, especially in college football and quadruple especially in projecting QBs. But there is real reason to look forward to the 2011 and 2012 football seasons – not just “wishcasting.”

    I too am excited to see him in action. Big kid, cannon for an arm, good accuracy in the little playing time he’s had, a good offensive line, and solid coaches mentoring him. I predict a successful year for MG.

    For a guy that came in at 195 and now is up to a legit 225lbs, even my recruiting guru UNC buddy did a double take at that. Kid has it all as far as the physical numbers, now its time to see how he leads a team and what goes on between his ears under pressure.

    Little brother Mike is off the charts if comparing physical tools with brother Sean. The 2 really aren’t comparable. And for the talent he has Mike has shown something that we don’t see very often from talented young sports figures – patience.

    I am anxious to see him hit the field in September and look forward to some big things from him during the rest of his time at NC State.

    Agree with the above, and also want to add that Mike has already graduated, so I imagine will not be carrying a full academic load this semester, giving him ample time for filmwork and meshing with the receivers.

    I wish we could have played him a little more last year. Just needs game experience to put those tools to use. Won’t be long before he gets it done.

    “I really don’t think I’ll be nervous. I’ve waited… I’ve learned a lot. >THIS< is why I've put in all the time and training."

    It's a wrap.

    “Agree with the above, and also want to add that Mike has already graduated, so I imagine will not be carrying a full academic load this semester, giving him ample time for filmwork and meshing with the receivers.”

    GREAT POINT! Reminds me of BC’s offensive line who were almost all 5th year players with barely any classes to take. I believe the year was year after TOB. They had 11 wins?

    Anyone more familiar with X&O’s care to explain what kind of changes we should see in the offense?

    The major concern I have is the O-line protecting Glennon. Russell got sacked way to much even though he could avoid a lot of the pressure. I hope Glennon gets more protection.

    I love that Glennon’s choice came down to us and Michigan, and now three years later it’s undeniable that he chose the more stable program. Go Pack!

    I like this young man. I’ve always liked him. For a straight shooter like TOB (you remember the first year when he said to the fans, “these guys aren’t as good as they think they are.” – Marine Corps honesty right there) to say that he has the potential of a Hasselbeck or Matt Ryan speaks highly. I especially love his display of maturity in the patience he has had waiting for his shot. Obviously, if Glennon wasn’t ready, TOB would have shown more willingness to work with RW. For all of his strengths, he is obviously not as mobile as RW but TOB and Dana Bible obviously know this too and WILL have the line protecting him and the right plays going to the huddle (cough,GeorgeBryan,cough). It’s going to look much like the Matt Ryan BC offense. I can’t imagine any Wolfpack fan not being excited. GO PACK!

    I hear he’s got a cannon for an arm.
