Yep. Let me warn you though, every 3-4 weeks we find a new set of JUCOs that we kick the tires on and then its radio silence.Exit 4 - looks like we're kicking tires on a couple of JUCO DEs that haven't committed anywhere yet.. (Mike Z)... more proof with Edsall not big on playing young pups too soon, which he had to do the last few years.. We need this depth though.. Kids already mature (physically) that can be a part of the top of the rotation (until a young pup shows enough to either be a part of that rotation or outshine everybody and take the lead). We need help on the ends (one guy goes out then the next man up can provide adequate support behind him) from that perspective.
You are so right. All 85 deserve and must be first string.Why is/was it ok to have some organization like the NCAA set up to dictate where a 18 to 22 year old can go to school and get a scholarship? So you play for red pants and see where its at and can't get out of it after year 2 (or even one). You play defense for UConn and after year one of the Crocker/HCRE2.0 defense fiasco you can't get out; it maybe only year 2 of the GREAT REBUILD but it could be YOUR final year.
This is not a sport opportunity for a bunch of students, this is an industry that produces billions for the many "non students" involved, letting students get out of a bad situation (whether anyone else would agree with what type of situation it is doesn't matter, what the student thinks is what matters) seems like a no brainer.
Lastly, why is it that players get to be portrayed as: give up too early, think they are better than they are, and my favorite from HCRE1.0/HCREDreamJob1.0/HCRE2.0 "not buying into the (meaning his) culture" and not "who the duckk would want to play for xxxxxxxxx.
Why can't the kids from Clemson or Alabama decide that being a 2nd string QB at those schools is not as good an opportunity as potentially starting somewhere else? "Cause it might inconvenience their current coach?
