thanks

is a Sports Management degree required for figuring out ncaa roster stuff and/or NFL Salary cap crap ?
or you just read this stuff like crazy and retain it naturally ?
Blue-shirts and Grey Shirts are common now to meet the scholarship thresholds. Similar to the transfer portal, many schools use these to get more players in early and deal with how they count towards the scholarship counts.

I think the Blue-shirt option is used by newer coaches who are wanting to get as many bodies in early to indoctrinate into their systems and give younger players a chance to impress (or not). The gray-shirt option seems to be a carrot used more by elite programs that are trying to drag along an iffy recruit (for them) instead of them taking a scholarship at a MAC-level or lower-level P5 program.

From 4 Star Saleh Brown's Twitter. Seems to me this staff knows what they are doing.

That’s my high school! (Though it was just Arthur-Lovington back then)

I don’t think we’ve come close to a D1 prospect for like 17 years. And that guy didn’t pan out.

So who knows if we’ve EVER had a legit D1 prospect.

Fairly certain this kid's dad played at the U of I. Doesn't have a great history if you dig into the guy(the dad), unfortunately. This kid had some brothers that were pretty decent athletes, but not close to this.

Oh..that Feagin. I will admit that I was a huge fan when he was running with the rock for the O&B.

That was 25 years ago. Sins of the father should have no impact on what the son does. Doubt that most fans will even remember though I wouldn't put it past a few crusaders on campus to try to draw attention to their cause by raising a ruckus.

I am on the Hunter bandwagon. If he is smiling in his picture, I want him glaring at D linemen. His mean look must be top 5 in Indiana.
