So long to the days of kids showing any kind of perseverance or grit if they aren't getting the playtime they want. They just take their ball and go home like the little crybaby in the neighborhood growing up.
College football will be a shell of what it used to be within 10 years.
Why would TP stay? This year has shown him no matter how bad big cinco plays he is not coming out of the game. Kid probably just wants to go somewhere where there is an actual competition for playing time
You must’ve worked in the same terrible job you’ve had since high school. As undying loyalty is the American way.
Pretty sure the American dream is about having opportunities, not playing 2nd string for an amateur sports league for a team just because some used car salesman recruiter convinced you at 17 years old.
#7, sure he is a good kid but seriously, gain 30 pounds and play Tight End. If he can fight through an achilles he can surely handle the contact of Tight End. At this level teams dont have 3-4 years to figure out if you can play QB.
Its not ruining anything if they aren't even playing. The kids love football. The kids want to play. If they transfer to a smaller school and happier there starting who cares. The benefit to the school is that there is another spot open to fill it with a potential starter.
Yall are just a bunch of old people screaming at the clouds because of how its "not like it use to be"
Zero point in complaining about it. Have to adapt. And is exactly why you can’t keep signing 15 to 18 per class every other year. If this isn’t a 22-24 person class, we will have to hit the portal hard just have a solid 2 deep
Below average. Most other top programs take 20+. We continue to lose players to the portal, take small classes, and just give more and more walk ons scholarships. Hence why Will Swinney and Will Brown are starting at receiver at this point.
So in short what Youngtiger is saying…The transfer portal is demolishing our depth…and he’s absolutely right. Blind fans will tell you that we do not have a serious problem with depth and talent on this team…particularly at the WR and OL positions…
At least these guys are doing early enough so our coaches know they need to sign more players. It is late in recruiting, but I am sure our coaches keep in contact with many recruits for cases like these.
To be honest I don’t blame Tp one bit for leaving … he did some good things and as bad as dj played this year there was absolutely no excuse for him not getting a legit chance … and who knows maybe that game he drove us down the field and then banged his shoulder up may have been the moment he took over , we will never know but don’t blame him at all
