Living in Nebraska I know a lot of good things about Suh and his efforts here.
However, to call him a big brother or a mentor I question Ziggy and how he is
adjusting to football life. It is one thing to learn technique and develop
one's skills but what Suh does and has consistently shown, is he acts
outside the lines of player professionalism and good sportsmanship. I hope that
Ziggy evaluates his mentor's and who he calls big brother. Suh has some
really good elements to his personality, but he needs to mature and play the
game the way it is supposed to be played. GO UTES!!
"'Off the field, he said if I need anything, I should just hit him up
and he's going to help me out. He's been a big brother to me,'
Ansah said."------------------Well Ziggy, if anyone
needs to remember the importance of keeping one's feet on the ground,
it's an NFL football player. Especially one playing defense. To that end,
and considering his tendency for irresponsible behavior, I hope you're more
of an influence on Suh than he is on you.
Maybe Ziggy can bring Suh to the gospel.
Wookie:I think Ziggy is speaking specifically about how Suh is mentoring
him on the field. I think Ziggy is aware of Suhs past and will take that into
consideration. It is nice to see Suh embracing that role though...we will see
how he embraces it if/when the chips are down. Maybe Suh can mentor him on the
field and Ziggy can mentor Suh off it...would be a great match, elevating each
Why try and figure out how the two can exist having dramaticicaly different
backgrounds and personalities? Just look at the positive side, it's about
team and Suh who took last year off just going thru the motions may work his
butts off trying to be a great example for Ziggy. I think the Z-Man will be
terrific and dominate at his position, Suh can grow upand be the leader.
A nice article about Ziggy, an obviously great young man. I wish him the best
in the NFL.
I just hope that the influence flows both ways and that Ziggy can teach Suh a
few things about sportsmanship.
Good Point about what sort of influence Ziggy can be on Suh. I think that
carries some weight to as I have mentioned before Suh has some really good
qualities to him. He does a lot of work with children and the like and also
spends a lot of time in Nebraska with various charitable activities. Being a
beast on the field (which he undoubtedly is) can still happen, just within good
Oh my, yes, please be VERY careful about that "off-the-field" help that
has been offered. I am sure there are many others with a better history that
would be willing to help. I would definitely go there first - and last.
uh, oh...Sounds like the beginning of the end for Ansuh!
Yeah, Suh is a big brother and mentor who just happens to stomp on opponents
Good for Ziggy. Sure hope he is Successful in the League. One more Utah boy
representing our State!
Ziggy could have a real good influence on Suh. Sure hope that he is successfu
with his careerl. And I w.holeheartedly agree with wookieon the go Utes. There
must be a few Ute fans in this husker state. I may reside here but my allegiance
is with the utes.
