    My post was an attempt at humor and a vague reference to the lunatic in the White House.

    I agree. Edsall’s reputation for evaluating talent is real. Really easy for other schools to get in on anyone he is interested in. I would bet it has happened already. Best to keep a lower profile for now.

    Very Trumpian way to avoid answering a question.

    We appreciate Exit 4 effort.

    However ... our view of the world is just different. And based on a past that hasn’t really been revolutionarily changed.

    Been a busy week for Baldonado. Picked up offers from Cincy, Umass and UCF. There is a quote out there that UCF is his "dream school." Meanwhile Syracuse and Michigan State visited. Baldonado is apparently being represented by Brandon Collier again - same guy that guided Metz to Cincy and Welschof ultimately to Michigan.

    According to Rivals, UCF signed four Dlineman during the early signing period. Perhaps they will be taking only one more rather than two. This is notable since they also have an offer out to Landon Woodson.

    Also of note, Greg Grate JR received an offer from UAB.

    Collier is part of Premier Players International - they are trying to get visibility for all European players. Worked to our advantage w/ Zavier Scott.

    Don’t like what - organizations promoting/advocating for players? They are no different than Rivals/247 camps, Supreme Athlete here in CT or any other of the Training Academies.

    So why do folks bicker about paying players then? A scholly for a good education is good enough? Nowadays, it's a little more than that. With all the $$$ generated behind a kid's 4 years of fame... if they stay/play that long....

    That’s exactly what these guys are doing (and I’m not naive) - they are mining US scholarship opportunities for European players.

    These kids wouldn’t get exposure without Collier you’re just upset that Uconn isn’t getting all of them
