You have got to earn it, go out and prove you are better. Do you know how many head football coaches sit on the couches every Saturday in the fall, thinking they are better?

So... how many transfers and de-commitments does this make under Muschamp's watch. Just curious.

Not surprising. He knows Jake is #1 with out a doubt this fall, plus he just lost is position in baseball. Doesn't make sense for him to stay.

About the standard amount for any coaching change. Always a big exodus the first year or two under a new coach. This transfer isn't just football related, he would still be here had he broken into the starting OF.

I hate seeing that things never panned out with McIlwain, but there is no way that he ever was going to see any quality PT on the baseball diamond or the football field at USC. He simply wasn't as good as the people ahead of him.

It won't surprise me if he goes to a smaller school and still makes the pros, however.

Kinda of odd when you think about it. McIlwain coming was a huge get for the program and was pumped up and so many fans thought he might make it big and Bentley comes in as a complete out-of-the-blue recruiting win, fans expecting him to take the back seat.


Granted I feel a bit bad for the kid, after what the past coaching staff pitched and how it turned out with Bentley taking over, but hey that's life.

I agree, but he was always behind in baseball. He was never gonna get another fair shake in football in the near future. Why sit around for 3 or 4 years? He has to think about himself. Go some where where he is coveted. You only get one shot at life. You have to make the best decisions for you at the time. I don't blame him.

I at least expected him to quit football. It didn't take many snaps before most unbiased observers realized he wasn't SEC-caliber talent.

I feel somewhat bad for him though. These guys' heads get filled with so much crap during recruiting. An average athlete with maybe one more star than he should have has way too high of expectations, especially when our program is in the state it's in.

As for baseball, the sure-thing, first round draft pick out of high school can't crack the lineup, eh? Overrated or head case?

I'll never understand the "wasn't given a fair shake" crowd. That is complete BS.

If by not a "fair shake" you mean was given a chance to start and there was no question that Bentley performed better when he got into the game, wait that is a fair shake and another guy on the roster was better.

Come on. Let'sbe honest here. He played in 4 games. Started 2 of those. No Rico and no healthy deebo. The playbook for him was literally 5 plays. Bentley also benefitted from playing the weakest defenses on our schedule. Why not let Bmac play in the Umass game? We never really saw what Bmac could do.

I also agree that Bentley looked better, but I'm trying to see from Bmac's perspective

He started 3 games and played a decent bit in 2 others. The problem with McIlwain was his accuracy was very erratic limiting the pass plays we could call and let's just say the read part of the zone read was a bit of a struggle.
