Default Freshman NOT being made available to media

I would like to see Muschamp change his policy on this. If I was a 5-star player I would not go play for a coach that prevented me from having access to the media.

Default Re: Freshman NOT being made available to media

I understand the rule but like you eluded to, if you recruit at a high level you’re going to have freshmen become huge impact players for the team. It’s not a huge deal but imagine if Hilinski takes over next year and dominates, our best player in that situation would never be seen off the field. In a larger sense it’s not great for marketing. Look at Trevor Lawrence at Clemson. He is everywhere and people love him, it brings a positive light to the program.

Do freshmen really want to talk to the media? No matter how good they are, they usually look nervous and uncomfortable when being interviewed.

The staff probably just want the kids to focus more on what they need to focus on, which has nothing to do with someone like Kendall trying to ask them if they think they should be a starter, or if they disagree with their coach's play-calling, or if they have any lockerroom issues with teammates, etc.....

Why is this a problem we don’t recruit well enough for freshmen to be a factor and have anything to say to the media anyway

Dabo has a different policy, who cares? I actually think it's smart to keep freshmen away from a microphone while they're still adapting to college football, school, and college life in general.

I honestly think any player should have that option. The coaches should be required to talk as a part of the job, but the players, if they don't ever want to talk to the media, that should be there right.

It's not about you(or the player). If you think it is, don't sign on the dotted line cause you know the expectation.

This is true, because unless we make it to the national championship game there won't be anything to watch.

Default Re: Freshman NOT being made available to media

I'm fine with keeping the freshman away--keeps them level and at the same time avoids someone saying or doing something stupid. Same thing as twitter--and their parents on twitter apparently.


I do think, though, that the coordinators and other assistants should be available at least every other week. It's ridiculous that Bentley had to field questions that an offensive coordinator should be answering.
