I have little to support my hypothesis, but it is my view that what Randy has taken from this entire three year post Diaco transition is that now more than ever he needs to find "his guys".....guys that he thinks respect him and the program....guys that he thinks are coachable. Not every guy he brings in will work out perfectly, but the idea is to take very few chances on guys that he doesn't think will respond well to his coaching. Like it or not, that's the deal and that's the way he has to operate. I don't think finding players fit Randy's approach was a priority of the staff's 2017 and 2018 recruiting efforts. Last year and this year I think they found many more guys that they think fit Randy's coaching style.
In general, the problem with transfers (as rules are currently written) is that you get a one and done player or a kid that needs to sit a year to become eligible with less than 4 years of eligibility. With the 25/85 scholarship limits, you will run into roster number issues pretty quickly if you use the portal too much.
I hear ya.....but DJ Morgans seem to be rather rare (maybe I have a form of stockholm syndrome).He's got issues too. We need more DJ Morgans not less. God he's dense sometimes.
Would like to see the context of the question/comment, but Randy, have we been so impressive it's not even worth a discussion with a kid? couldn't possibly be that the kid just made a mistake in his choice of school right? couldn't be that the coaches are mistreating him (or others)? couldn't be that he wants to be closer to (or further away from) home?
