No idea but I’ll speculate…
‘No fault of his own’. I take this as grades are good.
Credits should transfer from Illinois.
Issue could be related to major/ requirements/pathway to graduation in a reasonable timeframe.
I believe some coaches have had a ‘statement of understanding’ signed by both parties before a final contract was worked out. For exactly reasons what you are saying, likely.
Then news breaks like 6 months later saying contract signed, here are the details.
Ray rice was a name floating around last year. But new contract/ team got in the way I think. Not sure of status now.
Mccanmey should be good. Need another ball handler.
hopefully get some more international players.
thought Frazier/ damonte possible this year but NO in a good way.
Some of my thinking for a pass game goes to scheme, QB, and WR.
Need a quality scheme. Competent qb. Receivers that can get separation.
Thinking tanner morgan had success because he was competent, but Bateman/Tyler Johnson put the passing game on a higher level.
Well, he verballed to Creighton. Don’t think Creighton was the offer he was looking for. Would he of have backed out if their coach didn’t make the plantation remark??? If he chose Illinois last November could they held on to him?? Maybe other teams wouldn’t have spent resources going after...
Haven’t seen Chester Frazier name mentioned...alum asst at VT.
powell, Howard, Frazier most qualified in the alum category from my memory. Not sure their development focus. That seems pretty good, on a general basis, to have 3 alum on P5/ top staffs.
If replacing OA duties may need to look...
