    I seriously dont see everyone sticking around after the spring game... We have like 14 running backs for crying out loud lol

    But seriously, I hope everyone does stay and can contribute.

    All I can say is they wouldn't have taken him if they weren't confident in having room. Most expect the transfer portal to be crazy after spring, all across college football. Everyone is happy now, but once it becomes more clear who is and isn't going to get playing time, things will probably change.

    Trust me, we will drop someone if it comes to that. This is the highest rated recruit we have ever had, gotta get him on the team.

    I agree but highly doubt that happens. Someone has probably already informed the coaching staff that they are leaving.

    This is why I'm for open transfers. Let the kids who aren't good enough transfer to where they are needed.

    It would. I suspect, though, that after spring practice ends there will be some kids who will see that, as exciting as it is now on The Flats, they are not likely to get much, if any, playing time. I'm not speaking from experience or having seen anything or heard anything. It's just that not everyone can get on the field and some will probably want to go somewhere they feel they can contribute. I hope that that's the only kind of attrition we have vs. kids having academic issues that cause the attrition.

    If we want to be like Bammer, we got to start acting like Bammer.

    Can you do that even if they are not hurt? And if so how many can you do in one season?

    I read somewhere that Bammer averages around 12 medical exemptions every year. The NCAA average is 1. I don’t believe there’s a limit.

    It’s something we’re gonna have to consider. We’ve literally already crossed the line that CPJ tried toe the last decade. If people don’t leave we’re gonna have to make them leave. If we’re gonna demand better recruiting we have to live with the consequences.

    GTAA does that and support for the program will plummet. Only the idiots that want to place football above academics will welcome that mentality.

    Well if we have 88 on scholarship now (due to recent transfers recruited by Coach Collins) where does this leave Wesley Wells?
