Several of y'all are sort-of neglecting the fact that TXSt is a better football team than we are at the moment, so that should also be a factor. Pair the opportunity to play with dad, along with playing on a better team, and you have a cause for concern. If Chad went to UTEP, I wouldn't be as concerned.
If it's just about playing under Chad, I suppose that's not out of the realm that he would want to do that in his final year. But that's where we need Coach Brophy and Coach Morris to remain in constant pursuit of him until he's on campus.
Thought this was interesting data posted elsewhere. Generally, transferring UP does not improve your NFL chances vs staying at a lower level and being successful. No shocker there, this matches what we've seen at SMU, but it is good for G5 talent retention to acknowledge it.
I think the fact that he hasn’t played for his father though his 4 years of high school or his 4 years of college pretty much shows he can function fine on his own. Playing for your father or coaching under your father doesn’t seem to have set back Kendall Briles or Riley Dodge. If anything, they got a leg up because of the success of their fathers.
I wouldn’t go so far as to say attached to Edwards, but very attached to idea that someone has to stick up for “the little guy”. I am not fond of bullying, seniority based acquisition nor favoritism in the workplace. If I may borrow a pinch of language nuance from @Censored by Laurie, Edwards is an employee of North Texas. I’ve seen all of the above as it relates to him, thus I’ve opted to say something. To say nothing makes me just as guilty as the offenders.
There may have been a time when it was 100% the shirt, but not anymore. Since we are basketball followers, if a SMU player was a member of your favorite professional team would you no longer follow the team? Why does it have to be limited to “college to pro”? What’s wrong with “college to college”? I’ve labeled a former basketball player the UNT God. Almost impossible to find a thread without a mention of the UNT God. He plays for another college team. So much for the love of the shirt! Very easy to find videos of the UNT God here on this very message board. No Igor Milicic Jr videos on The Sabre.
I am a huge proponent of NIL and free rein regarding transfers. The kids/young adults are nothing more than underpaid employees. No member of any workforce should be forced to work for any employer. Every person at UNT is free to come & go as they please except for athletes. I can transfer as many times as I want. CRH can leave anytime he feels like it. So can the AD. Why restrict the movement of the labor force? Money!! There must be A LOT of it otherwise no one would care.
