 Working Will attempt to complete this review in the next few days. Grondemar 16:59, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

  • The College career section could use some reorganization. The first sentence talks about his All-Big Ten Conference selections in particular years; these mentions would work better at the end of the paragraphs mentioning each of those seasons. The second paragraph, on his career records, would go better at the end of the section, when these career marks would have been finalized.
  • The individual season paragraphs talk about highlighted moments in his career, which is good, but don't give a feel for how he was performing day-to-day. A year-by-year statistics table might help here.
    • I can give you complete college stats, but not pro. Is that all right?--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 20:10, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
      • OK, I can understand the obscurity of Arena Football statistics. Grondemar 03:28, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
  • When did he first win the kicking job at Michigan? The freshman year paragraph doesn't say.
  • You don't need to link both the overall season and the Michigan football team each year; I'd just link the individual Michigan seasons, since they link to the overall NCAA seasons.
  • The Pro career season needs expansion. How did he perform in the two Arena Leagues? Why was he cut by the Buccaneers? Another statistical table would help greatly.
    • A pro career table seems like it may be hard to produce. I do not know of any public sources. The AF2 has disbanded and only the most recent season stats are available online. I don't know how to find 2008.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 19:58, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
      • OK, I understand. I think the pro content currently in there is reasonable. Grondemar 03:28, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
  • The article as a whole needs a copyedit; I'll be willing to do it pending the addressing of the above expansion and re-organization issues.
    • Would be appreciated.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 20:10, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
      • I'll work on the copyedit over the next couple of days if you can put together the college statistics table. Grondemar 03:28, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
  • An image of him would be nice, although I know that it may not be available and therefore won't insist on it.
