    Deos anyone know anything about the Carriker / Long connection?

    Sorry I don't have a link, but it has been reported that Carriker has been working with Howie Long to improve his technique. Does anyone know how the "connection" evolved ?? Nick you must know -- and if you don't -- you're sluffing off and need to provide us with the information ASAP!

    I apologize for the title appearing as a tease. I inadvertantly hit the submit button before I finished, and don't know how to edit the title. The title was supposed to have been: Does anyone know anything about the Carriker / Long connection?

    I don't remember a specific article, but there was a short thread about it.

    Maybe Adam worked at Radio Shack at one time?

    Sorry to burst your bubble but you're a year off on it being Howie's son. We'll grab him next year to learn under Little. Chris Long is a 6-4, 284lb Senior DE at UVA this year. I know because my Dad's an usher there and has said hi to Howie at couple basketball games.

    Of course, if Carriker suddenly treats the team to brand new satellite radio systems from Radio Shack, then we will have to order the DNA test.

    Re: Deos anyone know anything about the Carriker / Long connection?

    I couldn't find an historical connection between the two. However, interestingly enough, two different national draftniks have tied Carriker to two generations of Longs.

    Mike Mayock (March '07) said the player most comparable to Carriker is Howie Long.
    Scott Wright (June '07) describes Chris Long as a poor man's Adam Carriker.
    "Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
