Stability

Those are the four descriptions that are the exact opposite of what has happened at Tennessee the past 6-8 years.

Hope Butch can get some of that back.
Having a good coach stay is the key. You guys were idiots to hire Kiffin. You had to know it wasn't going to work long term.

I'm just gonna go ahead and throw Devin Washington in here... I know he's on campus already for a full year but he's a DE that was in danger of losing his career because of a concussion but he passed the test and the doc says he is good to play some ball.

He will be fun to watch. I guarantee that Devin is gonna play with a chip in his shoulder and he's gonna be a vocal leader we need on the line.

Signing day is a good ways off but sitting here on December 30th, are there any chances that we make a big splash on signing day and land 3-4 guys we aren't supposed to, or aren't expected to?

I know there is always a chance but I mean more of could ya'll see it legitimately happen? And if so, who are the players you think?

Nope.....can't happen because of numbers. The most we can take is 22.....we already have 16. So between Wideman, Green, Smith, Lammons, Prince, Caldwell and Scott there isn't anyone else. If someone did commit, I would seriously doubt our coaches would accept their commit....but that is very unlikely.

What are the odds that those guys wait up until signing day to decide? And How many of them do you expect to sign with us?

I hope we can convince Wideman to stay home and be a Gamecock. Come on man!

I just watched film on Michael Scarnecchia. How in the world is he not a 4 star? Can throw the deep ball, has a strong arm, accurate on the run and in the pocket, and has decent running skills. I can see why HBC offered him. Big and a great arm. Impressed me.

Don't have a good feeling about Wideman. Not sure what he is waiting for.

For me I mainly just want to keep the guys we have committed, sign 2 or 3 corners definetly, and Prince and Wideman. Would like to see us add Scott too, but Prince and Wideman would be my choices in order before Scott.

Speaking of the corners, looks like we are in good shape with Smith. Who do ya'll think we have a better chance with, Green or Lammons? Sure would be nice to get all three!!!

I believe at the worst, we'll get 4 of them....4 of them will decide before NSD.....not necessarily the same 4.

It isn't uncommon for offers to be significantly based on highlight samples and certainly whatever they show is true... but limited as demonstrated with the kicker we signed last cycle based all most exclusively on tape. I'm as hopefull as anyone but this one is scary.

Maybe, maybe not. I know highlights are just that, highlights but just something about how his release, puts air under the ball and his mechanics look good to me. Never know though.
