    Looking at the info on 247, Minnesota had 8 de-commits last year. That number seems like even more than I expected, but three of these include two kids who enrolled early and have decided to transfer (not a decommitment) and Bargy, who last I heard had serious felony charge pending (any update...

    127 career catches and 11 career TD's at a P5 school? It would be gross negligence to not take a look. Bigger question is whether he would be interested in Illinois.

    Wow, I'm fairly surprised considering he is absolutely not a running QB. If Rod Smith is willing to tailor the offense to his strengths, I'm all for it (who the hell he is going to throw the ball to is a problem for another day).

    The sport version of "irreconcilable differences" and information spilling into the public sphere by those who feel wronged. When there's an approval, no one is upset.

    TTU just re-worked Beard's contract because they think a $6 million buyout will be too rich for the endlessly deep pockets of Texas and their countless wealthy alums, but we flippantly think $10 million won't be too much of a hurdle because of Khan? Assuming Khan has footed the bill for the...

    No 5th year or graduate senior QB transfer would be very very very disappointing.

    From looking at his contract, Underwood is going to have a buyout of ~$10 million (or more) for the next two seasons. I'm not privy to UI finances but that seems like a massive buyout for any P5 school.

    This Fink commitment does seem odd. Has it been confirmed?

    There were plenty of posters that felt optimistic about Tate transferring if he graduated, regardless of the evidence to the contrary.

    There has be extremely low odds that Illinois would convince two graduate transfer QBs to come to Champaign. They are both transferring for playing time, not competition. One commits, the other goes elsewhere (or both go elsewhere).

    Wonder if bringing in another QB, even a 5th year QB, will lead to one of the younger QBs to transfer (Robinson, Rivers, Taylor). Stevens would come in and assume the starter role, Williams is likely to get a serious look at QB at the very least, could see one of them to decide to move on for a...

    But that's the thing, the UA could (SHOULD) have put him to a statement about committing to the team now or not playing in the spring. Sumlin is feeling heat from last year's performance, he doesn't need the rug pulled out from his prized QB leaving right before the season starts. If Tate...

    The limited snaps is something, but he took the first five snaps. He's their starter. There's a bunch of puff pieces out there from UA media about his performance (80+ yard bomb and looking good in spring practice). They played the other QBs more because they are all young and need to identify a...

    I would put it at less than 1%. I was very hopeful in January, but him playing in their spring game and being "the guy" in their spring practices killed that hope. Why would the coaching staff give him all these reps unless he gave them assurances that he's staying? Imagine we were in Arizona's...
