does it make anyone else annoyed when someone is talking about Philip Rivers and they say PRIV? Im not sure why, but it is annoying. It is either Rivers or Philip Rivers. I dont even know how to pronouce PRIV..is it P-RIV..or like PRIV straight out? Either way it is annoying. However Rivers owns.

Watching all the games yesterday I wondered:

Between Cowher, Holt, Rivers, Cotchery, Hudson, Lawson, and more, has NC State ever been this well represented in the NFL?

You forgot Adrian Wilson, Mario Wiliams, Brian Williams, Alvis Whitted, Koren Robinson, Sean Locklear, Scott Kooistra, Terrence Holt, and Stephen Tulloch all who either start or get significant playing time.


but.. no, I don't think we've ever had this much NFL representation.

Peter King on cnnsi.com:


Quote :
"2. I think I will vote for Torry Holt for the Hall of Fame someday. He's 30. He's 346 receptions away from 1,000, on his way to his seventh-straight 1,300-yard receiving season (Jerry Rice never had more than three 1,300-yard years in a row) and 39 touchdown catches shy of 100. What hands. What presence on the field."

well of course holt will be HOF

but he isnt the best wr and wont ever be. he is a keyshawn johnson type of receiver. excellent route runner, excellent hands, hard worker but he doesnt have the breakaway speed and agility of a smith, moss (santana or randy), or owens.

Sure, maybe he isn't as fast as Moss or Smith, but he is AT LEAST as fast as Owens.

He isn't anywhere near the kind of reciever Keyshawn is, Keyshawn is a POSSESSION reciever, short gains, first downs, move the chains, etc.

Torry wouldn't be called "BIG GAME" Torry Holt if he was a possession receiver.

[Edited on October 18, 2006 at 2:53 PM. Reason : If I had an accurate and reliable QB, not Delhomme, I would have a hard time taking anyone over Holt]

[Edited on October 18, 2006 at 2:59 PM. Reason : yeah I was just guessing, knew it was somethin like that]

^You dumbfuck.

Torry Holt got to 10,000 yards faster than ANYONE...that means Jerry Rice. Through their first 7 seasons Jerry Rice had 526 receptions to Torry Holt's 619. Only category Holt trails Rice in is touchdowns.

Torry has it all. He's not the fastest, but he's fast. He won't make defenders miss like Steve Smith...but he still makes a lot miss. And he has the best hands and runs the best routes in the game (remind you of anyone??). And he makes BIG plays. Terrel might be tall and athletic to go up and grab a ball, but he drops almost as many balls as he goes up and gets.

You don't have to have red-tinted glasses on to say that Torry will go down as one of the best wide receivers of all time as long as he doesn't get hurt (knock on wood).

^ winner! but i disagree on two things: you're not giving terrell enough credit and torry will still be regarded as one of the best even if his career ends after this season.

^stfu, you dont put Torry and TO in the same category. Torry is greater than TO will ever be. He's faster, he runs better routes, he is the best teammate in the NFL. He wants to win, will play the decoy role, and helped lead his team to the superbowl as a ROOKIE.

Quote :
"SANTA CLARA, CALIF. — The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced Monday that former NC State wide receiver Torry Holt has been named to the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Class. Holt joins 12 other first-team All-America players and two standout coaches who were selected from a national ballot of 76 All-America players and six elite coaches from the Football Bowl Subdivision and 100 players and 32 coaches from the divisional ranks.

The announcement of the 2019 Class was made today live on ESPN's "SportsCenter” in Santa Clara, California, the site of the College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship.

Holt and the rest of the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Class will be officially inducted during the 62nd NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 10, 2019, at the New York Hilton Midtown and his accomplishments will be forever immortalized at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

Holt, the sixth Wolfpack player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, rewrote the NC State and ACC record books during his career with the Wolfpack, which spanned from 1995-98. A consensus first-team All-American in 1998, he was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and the only receiver in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy voting that year.

The 1998 ACC Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year, Holt remains NC State's all-time leader in career (3,379), single-season (1,604 in 1998) and single-game (255 vs. Baylor, 1998) receiving yards. He held the Wolfpack record for single-season receptions (88 in 1998) until Jakobi Meyers broke the mark this past season and his 15 catches against Wake Forest in 1998 is still tied for the top mark in school history.

A two-time first-team All-ACC selection at wide receiver, Holt also earned first team all-conference laurels as a punt returner in 1998 and led the Wolfpack to a berth in the MicronPC Bowl.

A two-year team captain, Holt owns other Wolfpack records, including single-season all-purpose yards (1,979 in 1998) and career (31), single-season (16 in 1997) and single-game (five vs. Florida State, 1997) touchdown receptions. The Gibsonville native's career receiving yards were a then-ACC record (now rank sixth), and he still holds conference marks for single-season receiving yards, single-season receiving yards per game (145.8) and single-game touchdown receptions. A member of the NC State Athletic Hall of Fame, Holt's No. 81 jersey was retired following his career and the team named its Offensive MVP award in his honor. He was named an ACC Football Legend in 2012.

The St. Louis Rams selected Holt with the sixth overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, and he played for the franchise from 1999-2008 before a final season with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009. The seven-time Pro Bowl selection led the Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV following his rookie season. A member of the NFL All-Decade Team for the 2000s, Holt retired from the league with the 10th most receiving yards in history.

Holt remains busy with Holt Brothers Inc., which he founded with his brother, Terrence, who also played at NC State. Their companies include Holt Brothers Construction, where he serves as vice president, Holt Brothers Football Camps and the Holt Brothers Foundation. Torry serves as president of the foundation, which supports programs for children who have a parent with cancer.

The other members of this year's Hall of Fame Class are: Terrell Buckley (DB, Florida State, 1989-91), Rickey Dixon (DB, Oklahoma, 1984-87), London Fletcher (LB, John Carroll, 1995-97), Jacob Grey, DL, Texas A&M, 1977-79), Raghib Ismail (Notre Dame, KR/WR, 1988-90), Darren McFadden (RB, Arkansas, 2005-07), Jake Plummer (QB, Arizona St., 1993-96), Joe Thomas (OL, Wisconsin, 2003-06), Lorenzo White (RB, Michigan St., 1984-87), Patrick Willis (LB, Ole Miss, 2003-06), Vince Young (QB, Texas, 2003-05) and coaches Dennis Erickson and Joe Taylor.


What they're saying about Torry Holt
"Torry's athletic abilities have been well-documented, but the thing I really remember most about him was the kind of person he was. Even though he lost his mother to cancer during his college career, you would've never known from his attitude or demeanor that he was going through a tragedy. He still came to work every day with a smile on his face. Many times, players with that much athleticism don't feel like they need to work, but despite his tremendous ability, Torry worked as hard as any player I've ever been around.” -Mike O'Cain, NC State Head Coach (1993-99)

"We're so proud of Torry Holt and his accomplishments. He has always been a great representative of NC State University and I have enjoyed getting to know him over the past six years. His success in college, in the NFL and in the business world make him a worthy Hall of Fame member. " -Dave Doeren, NC State Head Coach

"Very seldom do you come across such a gifted athlete with standout, God-given ability who also has the work ethic to match. Torry's diligence and drive to prepare were like nothing I've ever seen and for all the big plays he made and records he set, what was most impressive was seeing him push himself far beyond his limits. A great player he was, but it was his phenomenal work ethic that I will remember most." -Morocco Brown, Director of College Scouting for the Indianapolis Colts/NC State LB, 1994-97

"This is an incredible and deserving honor for Torry, I couldn't be happier for or prouder of him. His impact at NC State was historic and this is a reflection of his remarkable career. His character, continued success and commitment to our community make him a worthy member of the College Football Hall of Fame.” -Deborah A. Yow, NC State Director of Athletics."
