    I, for one, am glad.  Regardless of who was to win, we were going to have a covid outbreak ourselves.

    Better to cancel one non-conference game than to deal with that.

    And yes, like it or not, it is the world we live in now.

     

    But everyone is “vaccinated”.

    Trial by fire doesn't always work, especially in a function where so much synchronicity is involved. 

    There's a reason that Ruder was a 4* recruit, the top quarterback prospect in Kansas, and why he moved so quickly up the depth chart at North Carolina with very acceptable statistics.

    What we saw was a quarterback thrown into the starting role two weeks after arriving on campus. He had very few repetitions in this offense, and after a couple of early interceptions, started forcing the ball to make up for mistakes. That obviously didn't work.

    Jace will now have a spring season to get in sync with his receivers and will soon be ready to show us what he's actually capable of accomplishing.

    Yes, it is used against these coaches a lot. It'll get used against SL this recruiting period and into 2022, as we won't know until then if he will get extended or fired.

    Hell, that's easy to counteract.  

    Recruit: "Hey Coach, So-in-so from State U said you only have a year left on your contract and that I shouldn't sign here.  Is that true?"

    Coach: "Son, you ever heard of Lincoln Riley or Brian Kelly?  They had years left on their contracts at OU and ND, and where are they now?"

    Q: You visited North Texas for their big win against UTSA; what are your thoughts on that? Also, what will you bring to the table when you get there?

    CR: “The North Texas win was huge. I think it can start to change the way people view UNT. The guys were ready to play that stood out to me and truly dominated the game. That was a big-time performance in a big-time game to become bowl eligible. In terms of my game, I mind my business and work. So the fans will get someone who works hard but is not satisfied with less than but someone who is looking for more. I choose North Texas to make a difference, and that's what I plan to do. Mean Green, get ready!”

    So what do we read into Wren's silence on the fate of Seth? Anything?

    Nothing.  Wren has never stated that his position was in jeopardy.  That has been message board fodder since week three.

  6. The improvement of Ragsdale this year has been off the charts.  I remember personally commenting about him being soft early in the year when he decided to run out of bounds short of a first down instead of lowering his shoulder.  He looks like a different back now.

    I hate losing Torrey, as I hated losing Wilson, Dunbar, Cobbs, Galbreath, etc., but, if everyone stays, a running back room of Adaway, Johnson, Ragsdale, Adeyi, Jackson and Farrar is deeeeeeeeep.

    Dillion Williams plays corner back. Also, all of our DBs are listed on the roster as “DB.” Our roster listings don’t make the distinction between corner or safety, so not sure why you’re saying those guys are listed as safeties.

    All recruited as safeties except Gaddie who was moved to safety this year and was playing corner out of necessity.

  8. I don't get these freshmen entering the portal so early.  Then again, you never really know why they choose to leave unless they share that information, and even then, it doesn't tell the whole story.  Was he unhappy with where he was on the depth chart?  Was he "encouraged" to look elsewhere?  Where we just not a good fit?  Was he tired of wearing green?  We will never know the real answer.  I wish him well, but as I stated above, he is replaceable.

    Committed to Missouri St. Excellent arm strength and accuracy. Throws  a very good deep ball.  Good mobility but primarily a pocket passer. Very quick release. 

    Does not look to run but is effective when needed. The only box unchecked is his size.  Can’t be much more than 160 lbs. Great stats but could have been much higher had it not been for the blow out wins in district; where the clock ran continuously after half in each game. (Exception was the first game loss to Duncanville).

    Additionally, the dual running back tandem of Ke’undrae Hollywood and Qualon Farrar in a very balanced offense. 

    Wish we would give him a look.
