it’s not disparaging a player to say yates wasn’t a power 5 talent. his transfer destination said everything i said the entire time.That's rich coming from the guy who loves to disparage our players.
i mean come on man this is one of the first comments on the thread. rather than celebrate these boys accomplishments as they get to pursue a lifelong dream you used it as the first opportunity to bring negativity forward about collins. it’s honestly sadOne player drafted and another 5 signing pro contracts off a 3-9 team. Must have been the coaching...
This is a bold prediction, but I’m going to make it anyway. In the 2023 NFL season, the 2021 GT backfield will amass over 2,500 yards from scrimmage (barring injury).
Not surprising. He's a very good RB. We just couldn't lower ourselves and hand him the ball because we were too busy trying to prove to the world we were no longer a running team but a big time pro style offense.
I really do think that building OL depth takes years, especially starting from ground zero. It’s not like QB, RB, Free Safety where depth = 2 or 3 solid contributors plus healthy walk-ons/freshman. You literally need like
10+ potential contributors. Even if we had great OL recruits under CGC, wouldn’t they still only be Redshirt Sophomores this upcoming season?
It’s insane to me that we can’t all agree that three things are true:
1.) Our Power 5-quality OL cupboard was bare when CGC took over.
2.) CGC hasn’t done a good job recruiting OL in his first two classes.
3.) CBK hasn’t done a good job coaching OL in his first three seasons.
Seriously, why can’t we all agree on the above? Arguing against any one of the three point above is asinine to me.
So sad. Zzzzzzz...i mean come on man this is one of the first comments on the thread. rather than celebrate these boys accomplishments as they get to pursue a lifelong dream you used it as the first opportunity to bring negativity forward about collins. it’s honestly sad
Honestly as hard as I am on CGC, I think it's just going to be the norm from here on out, especially with low funded schools such as ours. Our less highly rated recruits who turn out to be under the radar players will transfer out if the money is right, while the 4 and 5 stars that don't pan out from factories are going to come to our level schools.No, that doesn't really excuse it either. You would think bringing in guys who started many games for SEC programs would help our OL. It didn't really. Now we are going into another year and we are expecting 3-4 new transfers who haven't played for us or played much at all to be our best offensive linemen. That doesn't seem like a problem to you?
i just wish mason could have gone to a different team. 9ers have so many RBs on the roster all the time and shanahan has had them draft 3 in the last 2 draftsThis is a bold prediction, but I’m going to make it anyway. In the 2023 NFL season, the 2021 GT backfield will amass over 2,500 yards from scrimmage (barring injury).
