  1. I'm hoping we can keep Kean and Chris O. Will one transfer?
  2. Both reports are concerning. Seems like a fundamentally different approach to offense and like our defense may not simply have the talent to improve as dramatically as we'd like.
  3. Agreed. We're making the best of the situation. I'd just rather see us recruit players who fit the bill, physiologically. I'm sure the staff would too. I'm not saying anything divisive or profound here. The only thing I really takeaway is if this happens too much, it could be a signal of a tough time on defense.
  4. As a principle I'm not a huge fan of moving someone from safety to linebacker. Or from LB to DE, or from DE to DT. It generally means you're masquerading someone small at the position. Not suggesting this is a bad move, per se, just from afar it smells funny.
  5. Umm.. Not all of these guys went to the combine...
  6. That'd be an idiotic way to have the conversation. Regardless, a coaches job is to think about the success of his team and player. It's not usually that hard to convince someone to do something if they're bought into the system and buy into your leadership. If Skip got overruled by BJ he was truly inept. I think he just made a bad call.
  7. I might be a homer but his stats look better than his elite peers as far as I can tell. Some guys have .02 seconds on him but he wins in weight and jumps. Or, some guys have more weight and he kills them in speed. Awesome numbers from what I can judge.
  8. Still too pricey. And too large of a lineup. Give me a la carte.
  9. Let me get something straight, the NCAAT year was my favorite year of any USF sport, ever. It's not lost on me how well the stars aligned that magic season to have that happen. Regardless, Heath only had that one good season where he actually won with players he brought in. His other decent year was where he had DoJo. Jones was a generational player, that he inherited. And, that ultra one-dimensional team (which all of his teams were) crashed and burned immediately in the NIT. I don't think Heath is a bad coach. He just had proven he wasn't going to break .500 more than a couple times a decade. Why bother to keep that around?
  10. Things haven't gotten better without Heath. Guess what, we don't know if they would be any better with Heath either. Firing him was the right call, he clearly fluked into the NCAA run and had proven not to be capable of consistently (or even rarely) breaking .500. Why keep him around? Is winning 14 games better than winning 11 in the grand scheme? We need a coach who can get us above .500 more often than not. That wasn't Heath. Sorry.
  11. Most newborns are ugly (sorry, not sorry) but you got a cutie on your hands there, Matt. Congrats.
  12. He's draftable. Should catch on as UDFA. He'd be a great ST player.
  13. Sigh. What a genius call. I'd be willing to give Coach K a chance too if he wants to finish off his career by the beach. :-P
