Glad to see passing grades and no looting and pillaging.

Tramal Ivey is a pretty big deal not being there.  When do fall classes start?  Aug 20th?

It did say he will arrive for fall camp.  I would imagine that would start before classes.

Any word on the DT Calloway? 

Nothing official; however, Joey Knight speculates that he'll be back with the team.

We have heard this story before. It seems fall arrivals are usually at risk of not making it. Usually meaning he has not graduated yet.

I think Ivy still has to finish a class so I'm sure it's not a definite he makes it.

Hopefully we get Ivy and Calloway. Just my two cents, Calloway wasn't great vs the run. Hes more of a pass rushing DT, which will be great in a role. I believe all of our top DTs stand on pretty equal footing in terms of overall skill, including Bronson, Senat, Awoleke, Calloway, and Hector. But now that we have such a wealth of talent at DT (assuming he makes it) I almost think Calloway should try kicking out to DE depending on his condition, and defensive situation, since all of our talent is at DT, and we lack depth at DE. We will see how that works out

I always find news like this fascinating to be able to compare and contrast coaches and philosophies.  Taggart is the polar opposite of Leavitt recruiting.  Leavitt would go after a bunch of high risk/high reward players knowing he would lose some along the way to academics/behavior/work ethic.  He really hoped to hit about one in three that would be solid contributers.  It meant he got better players than he should, but less of them.  So his teams were historically overachievers but thin and struggle later in the year.

Taggart wants more guys that he can mold over a longer period of time, rather than guys that would bubble to the top.  I think this is the more sustainable model, if you can pull it off.  It might be the more difficult way to build.

In any event, reflects well on the staff.
