    Same. This news legitimately shocks me.

    No, this is cynicism to the max. Luke Ford was a top 60 recruit in the country with a composite score of 97 and tight ends absolutely, positively, 110% can have as big of an impact as an actual receiver. Whether he's eligible is another story but Luke Ford is far and away as impactful a player...

    He's also got 2 ACLs tears in 2 consecutive seasons. Hard for me to view him as a better 2020 option than the guys we already have here.

    I'm aware, the strategy put forth by Fields' representation was well reported. I was referring to Luke Ford when I stated quote "I don't know how he gets the waiver" in response to the question of whether Ford was next.

    For me, with the way our roster shapes up now and in the years coming, 2020 is where I see the "This is our year" blinking road-sign. The only way I'll feel comfortable with the ability of this HC and staff to deliver the on-field product I believe we'll be capable of in 2020 is with a tangible...

    I still don't see how he gets the waiver but honestly, who even knows how this process works anymore? I sure don't.

    Could be, yeah. Someone brought up just a day or two ago that he was essentially going to sign, wanted to point out that i hadn't actually seen/heard that anywhere else but it would be a good thing were it to come to fruition.

    Perfectly logical view point. I personally, however, do not see it that way.

    This is probably where things get gray, for me at least. Define "ever so slightly" in terms of what isn't acceptable. The prevailing thought seems to be 6 wins, "bowling or nothing". To me, that's a little tough to get behind. Winning 6 games isn't the end all be all for me if the 6 games we...

    Which is fully understandable. While disappointing for us, anyone using this as a sign of our imminent demise is off base and doing so for reasons with underlying intentions.

    This is one that really stings but is fully understandable. Never mind the fact that's joining the staff of a person he knows, he made what, 225K last year? He's going to make a lot more than that now.

    Ah, 10-4. Thanks for the clarification.

    Someone earlier mentioned Jarcadia Wright would be on board. I haven't heard that anywhere but he would be a solid late-period signing. Adam Sherrif is still out there as well, we've shown interest in him previously. Have to wait and see what happens with Rajae Johnson's eligibility. We most...

    Phenomenal post that could have ended after the first sentence. If you have $5, you cannot walk in to a store and buy something that costs $10. If you have 19 available scholarships and you bring in 3 transfer students, you cannot sign 27 HS seniors ala Nick Saban. Nothing about that should be...

    I can't tell if this is expected to be taken seriously or not, so I'm going to proceed on the side of sanity and just say "Um, no".
