I’m not so sure I would take your word as concrete. Just from watching from a far... but thanks for the insight!

But I will reiterate that we have reached out to EJ and MULTIPLE other players who haven’t hit the portal yet, so please don’t take this guys word as gospel! 🙄

EJ has long been putting out the feelers for transferring, weather you believe it or not, since before they ever beat us on our home floor and ending up having that incredible stretch in the B1G this year...

No disrespect to any other posters, I just know what I know. It doesn’t have to be argued with my friends.

This guy with 5 posts saying that one of if not THE most reliable and well connected people on the board is wrong...literally couldn't have picked a worse person to try and cast doubt on and act like a know it all.

No insider here, but I’ll play along. I know somebody that knows somebody that knows somebody connected to Belo’s camp and Ace’s camp and Kofi’s camp and all are certain that something big is going to happen soon. ... or not... could include some big name transfers or some big name recruits!!! ... or not.... Actually maybe I am an insider.

Finally, the voice of reason!

There's one glaring hole in your story.

Bill Self hired Wayne McClain, years after Sergio, Marcus, and Frankie had already committed. In fact Sergio committed to Lon Kruger.
I'm just an amateur, of course, but that seems to me to be about FIVE glaring holes.

No longer. The old rule years ago was that a player who transferred within the conference had to sit out two years.
IIRC, Jeff George didn't get a scholly from us, pretty sure that's not a rule anymore.

I think the Zags are a National Title away from being a "new" blue blood.

Mark Few belongs in the HOF.
Hope he wins a natty, seems like a good guy, is a great coach, and does it the right way from all available evidence.

I remember an article from about 12 years ago in SI or ESPN that talked about recruits calling him while out fishing. He didn't recruit much, the players called him. That's when you've done it

Few may reel in a few recruits while fishing, but we caught Bass.


(I know, just when you thought it was finally over...)
