  1. To finish or to be near Top 40 with the low numbers to begin the cycle, along with having a horrible run with our record, is somewhat amazing. Only about a month ago, the sky was falling in regards with recruiting.
  2. You guys are right in theory. We haven’t shown we can beat Illinois, Purdue, etc…. But realistically, although Rutgers and Maryland aren’t gimmes, they are “easier” and more winnable than OSU, PSU. With OU, Wiscy at home, the schedule is “easier”.
  3. Any word on if Allen showed up this weekend and if so, how visit went?
  4. I may be dead wrong, but this is exactly how I feel also. I honestly can’t believe that smothers is even sticking around for the spring rather than getting his foot in the door somewhere else
  5. This is exactly why some of us said weeks ago Purdy already has leg up on Smothers. He is Whip’s guy.
  6. You have valid examples. Can anyone give specific examples of how or when Casey Thompson has neglected these? The point was CT was too cocky
  7. Frazier to this day was the cockiest QB we have had, and to this day may be the greatest. Most of his teammates weren’t fans bc of his arrogance and cockiness. It did end up affecting his coaching career, but not as a player.
  8. Based on how you finished with the ….Hmm, you sound concerned? Don’t be. Nothing to see here. Honas was going to struggle seeing time and Wynden was a Tuioti guy. Not surprised at all with him leaving.
  9. The Big 10 will have to adjust to us.
  10. I truly believe the SF has two years. His hires need at least two years to teach and implement. Trev is smart and understands this. Nevertheless, if there’s a repeat of 3 to 4 wins, There will be a lot of outside pressure to pull the trigger, rightfully so. I also agree that a bowl game should be the lowest bar, and I am a SF supporter.
  11. Allen is now visiting? My goodness, how many rb are we going to grab. I say, 1 more, if Allen wants in. He could be prize get.
  12. That is a correct way to explain it. I am not sure if Purdy is better than Smothers???? But, if they don’t get him, they may end up with neither, if Smothers bails if he isn’t starter. I think they are covering bases, which is NOT what they did when they went after Luke. Lesson learned. In today’s world, you better plan on kids taking off rather than sitting around
  13. The thing with Purdy is that according to reports, he understands that he is the guy of the future. That doesn’t mean that he won’t come in and bust his a$$ for the starting job, but if he is number 2-3, will stick around. Smothers would be on his 3rd year on campus and if he isn’t number 1, not sure I see him thinking it is ok to sit behind Thompson for 2 more years. That would be year 5. I think the staff believes this and is building depth, thinking that Smothers bails if not number 1. I am not saying that he won’t be the starter, but if not, he is leaving, which is why they need Purdy.
  14. Wonder if he will still sign, then show up in Summer like some of the other recruits
  15. I agree with your assessment on hires. I do think that IF Raiola is good, he can make improvements before next season. A lot of issues can be technique related such as hand placement, first step stuff. They have all winter-spring-summer to get some of this corrected. Listening to Matt Vrzal all season, he seemed to think that it wasn't a difficult fix, just philosophical. Now, if we still aren't strong enough, that is a different story, but don't think that is the case.
  16. Didn't they also get Gabriel?
  17. This one doesn't make sense to me. He may end up being the guy we have been searching for and possibly a stud, but from the outside, I don't get it. We are bringing a guy with limited experience into a crowded room of 3-4* guys. This only becomes more "muddled" IMO. I would have use this for an OL or DB recruit
  18. Serious question. I see a lot of different ideas and options within the world of HB. I like some of them. Do we truly think SF still has NOT located and narrowed list to one (who may be announced soon bc most nfl teams and all of ncaa are done), or do we truly think he is still out there "grasping at straws" and in actively looking for anyone? I would like to think that he already has his guy or at least a very small list of guys who have already been in discussion. What is the "hold up"? Is it because the guy is still coaching, contract talks, or has he just not found the right "fit"?
  19. I completely understand and agree, but don’t forget that AM’s feet saved as many sacks as his hesitation gave up. He made line look better than they were at times. They were not good.
  20. Sark didn’t “let him go”. Not his choice. Casey made decision to leave, he didn’t get “cut”. Sark does not have a say in it. And, just look at Sarks track record, not a model of consistency.
  21. If we don’t get Purdy, then ride the stable of our young qbs . An offer is just that. He will sit behind Gabriel there, just like Thompson here. This is where Whips long standing connection may help.
  22. Initial eligibility concerns, but thought I read that because he was officially accepted into school, that meant he met requirements??? Is he good to go?
  23. I agree with your post. I respect Smothers and he isn’t man ego guy. I just think he will move in soon. If we specifically went after 2 qbs, one to play immediately and another guy, hand selected by our new OC, who is young. If he waits until after Spring, he is basically forfeiting his chance to realistic chance to start for another team next year. I can’t see him reading the writing on on the wall here and then waiting to jump, only to know you will watch from the sideline again. Not in today’s world of college football
  24. I think Glantz is Bellevue West. Same as Betts and Keagan Johnson (Iowa) and Ducker (portal)
  25. Disagree. Purdy was recruited heavily by our new OC. He recruited him out of high school and re-recruited him out of FSU. He has strong bond with Whip. Smothers has no bonds with him. Coaches recruit their own guys. I would say that Purdy has big advantage, regardless of how some recruiting service rated them a few years ago.
