Re: New Commit

Call me cautiously pessimistic on this signing. Brayden Bell comes to mind based on his limited usage and very poor stats at Virginia after being a highly touted high school player. Interesting that Virginia was his only big conference offer. Hopefully he proves me wrong. Jarred Shaw is the only ot...

Re: Smith in no hurry to use last schollie

Smith sure has a different attitude toward that last scholarship that Stew did. Often thought that Stew brought in kids that didn't contribute with the last one. Yes, he would run one or two or three or four players off the team and replace them with new players who would be on the roster until the...

@aggie22

Any idea when we will get news on the last scholarship being filled. Seems like all the dominos would have fallen by now. Will they possibly just go with 12 scholarship players?

Any high caliber HS recruit is not going to want to redshirt. Seems like those days are over. The good players don’t want to sit out and develop. They want to play. If forced to redshirt they tend to transfer. I wish it wasn’t that way but the exceptions are few and far between in this age of entit...
