Well, Champ never gave up a touchdown to Malcolm Mitchell

This comparison is awkward for me to read. In many ways. Not the least of which is that Louchiez Purifoy is not close to the cornerback that Bailey was. Something the writer admits to.
The last player to garner 100 snaps per game and excel at it was Georgia’s Champ Bailey. In ‘98, Bailey played 100 snaps in seven different games and produced 744 receiving yards and five touchdowns, while still being the top defensive player in the country. Can Purifoy do that? He may be that caliber of an athlete, but he’s not as strong defensively.
Otherwise, last year's cocktail party might not have tasted so good.
