Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

Yeah, trash the recruits. No way it could be the coach recruiting him dropping the ball.

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

But we're not 6-1 or 7-0, are we? So we should act as though we're 7-0 and #1 in the country, though, and not call anything whatsoever into question. Got it.

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

Did we rescind his offer?

Just indulge me: hypothetically, IF Durant expressed his desire to play WLB and Botkin told him he would not be given that opportunity and even went so far as to suggest...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

So you're calling the reporters (who talked to the coaches) liars?

"Buy" whatever you want. It's being reported by reputable websites that's what went down. And if that's what went down, then the...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

No worries. I know we're all just trying to make sense of it. The reporters are now saying "sources say there were grade considerations in addition to the position issue." To me, that sounds like the...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

Wasn't grades. Wanted to play WLB. Botkin told him he could not. (this is according to multiple reporters and can be inferred by reading DD's comments.)

Tony Morrell and JC both on 247 posted that Durant wanted to play WLB and Botkin told him he would not play WLB. I know the difference between an internet poster and a reporter. I read the same PK...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

It is according to the multiple articles I've read on other sites written directly by reporters. The reason he "felt he fit better at ASU" is because Botkin told him he wouldn't get a chance at the...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

FWIW, apparently Durant wanted to play WLB and Botkin told him "no". ASU told him "yes". Nothing to do w/ grades.

Yes, you perfectly encapsulated my entire point; well done and great job.

If this staff lost an already committed in-state player w/ ties to the program who plays a position that has, to put it...

Re: 2015 Commitment - Davon Durant

According to report from PK Durant himself it wasn't about grades but playing time. Said we had too many LBs coming back.

If true, that is horrible work by our staff. (And obviously, could be...

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

He told PK that it was about playing time and seeing the other players we have coming back and not grades.

Which could be him covering himself but if true, is absolutely insane given how our D...

That or it's damage control by the staff to cover up losing a top-rated prospect.

Re: Discussion: 2015 Recruiting Impressions

Durant's gone. There's one four-star gone (and highly unlikely to be replaced by another 4-star, particularly one who could contribute right away).

How much of this class do people think we...

Re: Our next coach beating Baylor

No on Holgo. Guy is a great OC. He is not a HC. The Muschamp of OCs, but putting up gaudy stats on that side of the ball will keep someone employed longer than whatever the hell Muschamp is doing (or...

They both looked godawful, but I hope this puts an end to the Perry Orth Experiment.

Mitch deserves more of a look but our best hope at this point is that A. Scarnecchia has something special or...
