So far we have 9 who have entered the portal


Dec 5, 2022, 4:17 PM

As much as I hate to say it, we must use the portal to backfill. In today's age of free agency there is just no way around it. Sad for college football.

should've been using it the last 3-4 years now.***

Dabo wont use the transfer portal. If he was he already would have.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Dabo has a new S C R I P T per D. Hood


Dec 5, 2022, 4:36 PM

Clemson will use the portal this Spring. Keep up.

Quick Question


Dec 5, 2022, 4:30 PM

Using your own words, how do you "backfill" a roster with players entering the portal, whose main reason for entering the Portal was they weren't starting.



Sure ,it'd be nice to snag a couple DE's and A tall WR, basically the only positions someone could start at on this team.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

That's if XT and Mascoll don't return


Dec 5, 2022, 4:31 PM

which I think they do

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

You have to think , you could be right,otherwise


Dec 5, 2022, 4:33 PM

Swint wouldn't have jumped ?

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Makes too much sense for both


Dec 5, 2022, 4:37 PM

XT returned last year to have a big year and the foot got him. Mascoll has just had the misfortune of playing behind Murphy

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

He certainly got more time than Greg Williams.


Dec 5, 2022, 4:38 PM

Coaches seemed to trust him most of those likely left on the roster. You would think he was in line to start. Who/what sent him packing?

Re: Quick Question


Dec 5, 2022, 4:39 PM

Not all players in the portal weren't starting anymore. Look at the starting offensive guard for Bama who just entered the portal.

badge-donor-05yr.jpg flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Most em ARE not starters, besides the OP was about


Dec 5, 2022, 4:45 PM

"backfilling" the roster thru Portal. That's why I used the OP's words, because there's always one that wants to point out a starter here or there, when the overwhelming number of Portal Jumpers are not starter. That's why close to half never find a home.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

if you have a chance to UPGRADE talent....why not?


Dec 5, 2022, 4:44 PM

just to use WR as an example...........Antonio is the ONLY WR who's job should be "safe"

If we had a chance at getting an ELITE Olineman...........I don't care who's job he "takes"........if he's better, he's better.


I don't like the portal any more than the next person, but it's here to stay and a resource that NEEDS to be used.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

If there's a tall WR available,sure


Dec 5, 2022, 4:50 PM

Again, you're not gonna backfill rosters with transfers wanting to start. That's why WR's and DE's were mentioned.

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Plenty of transfers go to different teams and not start


Dec 5, 2022, 4:53 PM

They just want a better avenue. We are about to face one of those players on Dec 30th at QB.

2023 white level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

the staff can move schollies however they want.


Dec 5, 2022, 4:55 PM

some may think they can "get away with" going the HS route to "backfill" losses
some may say "hey, this guy is elite......I know we're in decent shape at this position, but this is an upgrade"

it's not rocket science

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Re: So far we have 9 who have entered the portal


Dec 5, 2022, 4:31 PM

Agreed. Just because something is new/different does not mean it won't work. Time to give it a try!

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Considering none of these are impact players and all


Dec 5, 2022, 4:34 PM

face younger players passing them on the depth charts, why would it be preferable to go the portal route for replacements rather than replacing them with a new crop fresh out of high school? Not saying at all that the portal should be completely discounted, but these types of roster losses don't necessarily scream urgency.

Re: So far we have 9 who have entered the portal


Dec 5, 2022, 4:50 PM

Only way we get a top player is if we have an obvious hole.

We aren't guaranteeing anyone anything and I doubt we are paying them or contacting them before they are in the portal.

Best chance is probably a player we recruited who was productive where they were but wants a change of scene or wants to move back to SC.
