Also, word on McCaffrey is Rice.

 

Branson Yager not expected back.

 

And punter Ryan Harwell from Louisville was in for a workout.  Was a JUCO All-American before he was at Louisville.

 

We also continue to bring in kickers for workouts.

 

Pursuing a punter is a sign they're not comfortable with who's in the building, which is ... not great.

Kind of funny how things develop.  Two months ago people were sure that Chins was terrible and McCaffrey needed to be our starting QB.  Weird how things you think you know can turn out to be totally w

In a nutshell:    Butler & A Will are not surprised as they felt that Riley players were blamed to be a problem & pushed out. Also saying that when back to back years you lose your t

Or they'd like to have more than one guy.  So we don't get in the same spot we were with kickers a couple years ago.

Yeah, I guess always the more competition the better. But we already have two dedicated punters on the roster in Cerni and Przystup. Unless they expect one to transfer or are just trying to flood the position with bodies and see who hits I think this is more likely a sign that they're not particularly confident in either of those two.

dropping like flies, David Alston is in the portal

 

Eh ... that's a bit much.  It hasn't seemed like he was ever going to be in the mix for quite awhile now.  Probably better for everyone.

Eh, I think it's more precise to say that keeping Crouch allowed the cracks to be covered up for longer.  Crouch was able to cover up a lot of shortcomings for quite awhile.  Solich didn't have to have a competent offensive scheme because Crouch could just take over.  So we didn't see the foundation braking up as soon as we should have.  But when it finally gave way, it collapsed quickly.

 

Which I guess maybe isn't too far from what you were saying.  But I don't think chasing Crouch was the issue.  It was everything else that covered up.

 

Oh, that's part of it, certainly. But my point is more that Solich never quite established himself as The Guy In Charge after Osborne left, and wasn't firmly in control. The Crouch vs Newcombe situation was handled poorly from a leadership standpoint, culminating in Solich driving up to Omaha and sucking up to Crouch. Supposedly, Osborne's other assistants still sorta looked at him as the RB coach, and didn't treat him with the same respect as they did Osborne, and started to slack off on things like recruiting.

 

As mild-mannered as Osborne was, he didn't tolerate any BS from anyone on the team or his staff, and fundamentally I think that's one of the biggest areas where Solich was lacking.

A graduate transfer with 3 years of eligibility?

 

Class of 2018

 

2018 - redshirted

2019 - Freshman

2020 - Doesn't count for eligibility

 

So he graduated in three years and is a 3-for-3 guy wherever he goes.

Given that last year didn't count towards eligibility, he could have arrived 3 years ago, have 1 redshirt season, 1 "free season", completed his classwork and still have 3 years of eligibility left.

agreed.  I don't much care if a guy 5th on the depth chart decides to transfer.
