I guess we will see where it goes.Two year transfers are great in theory, the trouble is just that our junior class already exceeds the 25 player limit for adding new players. I think it's only at like 28, which is far from the end of the world, but those are moves that reward 2019 at the expense of 2021, just inherently.
Hot seat coaches are a principal/agent problem, there's no way around it. I don't think Lovie has managed the roster selfishly or irresponsibly, far from it, but his incentives and the incentives of the program vis a vis recruiting are divergent right now. Lovie needs two Dondi Kirby's, the program needs eight Teddy Karras'
If Lovie goes 3-9 and gets fired, I can see the next coach coming in and having a Brohm like first year with lots of upperclassmen on board due to the large senior class along with some talented playmakers sprinkled in here and there.
But that’s a discussion for a different day.
