    I’m not bragging on myself dude. It was getting clear after he received a big offer and we sucked it up. You don’t gotta get so worked up about those type of things.

    Not trying to make myself look better or be correct, just stating what I said.

    If I’m posting here, I’m not worked up

    Just like that, poof.

    I called it, and that’s what losing does. Changes are needed soon.

    Best of luck to TJ...

    A few days ago you bragged on yourself for being right that “if we can’t knock down shots, it’ll get ugly” against Arkansas. Now you’re bragging that you called that our commit would flip to a school we haven’t beaten out for a recruit in well over a decade. These aren’t the prescient points you are making them out to be. 

    Still wish we’d go after Tevailance Hunt transferring out of TCU but doesn’t look like it.

    Absolutely - including that programs are bleeding money and the way Texas restricts financing of athletics to purely donation based ... someone is going to get screwed.  However, it being a programs philosophy to actively weed out kids and show them the door when we presented and granted a scholarships - that is a different story. 

    There’s a right way and a wrong way to turn over your roster. Being transparent with players when there isn’t a realistic path to them getting playing time, and helping them get on at an FCS, JUCO, etc. is not foul. It happens now, there is just going to be more of it happening than pre COVID.

    So we should not honor scholarships for players that don't hit the field as a starter? Is that really good for the person and the program? Interesting perspective. 

    Unless the NCAA allows more than 85 scholarships beyond 2021, and starts allowing more than 25 scholarships per class, this is going to start happening a lot more everywhere out of necessity. If it doesn’t, there are going to be far less scholarships available for high school kids.

    Teams are allowed 85 scholarship players who are not seniors next season, so hypothetically they could retain the same 85 in 2022 that they had in 2021. Where is the room for 2022 high school recruits if that happens? Is it fair for high school kids, good enough to play D1, unable to sign because players they are better than are hanging on at schools for 6 years because of the extra COVID season? Someone is getting screwed regardless.

    Play Bean the last few games and see what he does. Could it be that the game plan that this team is given and motivation to play and WIN ain't be delivered?

    I’m fine with this, but it seems with Bean the best strategy is a run/read option heavy offense. Which, if we can win with that, that’s fine, but with the talent that we have recruited at receiver and tight end over the years that would leave us with a lot of untapped potential offensively. Is there someone available who can get the ball to those guys and still keep the rushing game strong and multifaceted? Could Gilmore or Drummond be that guy or would we need to look externally?

    We already have a lot of scholarships dedicated to QBs next year. Not sure we add another. 

    Because the transfer rule is changing, this has the potential to be as much roster turnover as we have ever seen across the country. I’m partly with you on this, but I feel like it’s going to depend on a few things. Who is available, can returning guys win our coaches over, and how strongly do the coaches feel about Gilmore and Drummond?

    With such a logjam of underclass men QB, it wouldn’t be a surprise at all to see a couple leave.

  6. Do you think we will try and bring in a grad transfer QB to take over next season? This could even be a QB who hasn’t graduated yet as the NCAA is set to allow players to transfer once without needing to take a sit out season.

    Note that RS FR QB Amani Gilmore will be eligible for next season after transferring from Kentucky but the question is asking if we will add someone else.

    Really like his film. This dude playing in between Brammer and Mose would make a pretty legit right side of the line, then let OK State Transfer Jacob Farrell battle it out with Cole Brown at LT with Gray having played pretty well at LG this year.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see us go exclusively with transfers for our remaining spots (D1 and JUCO). Between COVID’s impact on players getting an extra year of eligibility, the NCAA set to allow transfers to not have to sit out, and the NCAA still capping signings per class at 25, the high school classes of 2021 and 2022 are getting absolutely screwed and I feel bad for them. Hope we at least land of few of them who would’ve normally ended up at P5 schools.

    I agree on the first part for most games except today. A lot of newcomers played and it’s nerve racking going from a bad MVSU team to a great Arkansas team.

    Mississippi state is not that good, and with 3 games under their belts, it should get easier from then on.

    It was definitely frustrating, but Arkansas also was a top SEC defense and Mussleman is a big time defensive guy.

    Grant did a good job at limiting The hogs at open shots and making them work. Unlucky on our side that they would make them.

    Yeah we’re going to be fine. The disappointment just comes from losing these signature OOC win opportunities in such similar fashion across the entire Mccasland era.

  9. Really disappointing showing. Against High Majors and elite mid majors we take way too long to start attacking offensively. If Zach goes through Vanover like he has been now, we probably prevent ourselves from digging such a deep hole early on. Did this against Dayton and others in previous years. And just terrible job of hitting shots, 3-point line, free throw line, and mid range.

    Also would like to see more of Robinson and Ousmane and less of Jackson and Wise. Much more size and offensive skill. Mccasland needs to play the best players, not over rely on the hierarchy game, if we’re gonna compete with WKU this year.

  10. One of the biggest issues we have in playing these top competition teams is passing semi open shots. Usually we’re passing those up for turnovers. Shoot with some conviction or watch them take it away. I get that they are taller and more athletic but this is pathetic, especially if we are trying to raise our standards as we up Mccasland’s pay.
