I was wondering why weren't using the last scholarship. It's about time someone wrote something about it.


Do we "recruit" walkons or do they come over here and audition? Just curious to how that works.

Why editing is important

Post by dogie » June 13th, 2019, 10:41 pm

This is an instance of the article saying the exact opposite of what was intended:
It is far from the realm of possibility for Smith to bring in an impact player in the middle of or even late in the summer. Neemias Queta signed with Utah State on August 29, a mere two months prior to the 2018 season opening exhibition game against Evergreen State.
Also, I know that Fakira has left the team, the school, and the country. But has this been reported anywhere in the traditional press? It’s interesting that this detailed article was written without mentioning the reason for one scholarship to be open.

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 end of the next season when the cycle repeated (if they lasted that long).

The only late signee who I can remember contributing at a high level for Stew was Chaz Spicer.

I don't know what you determine to be the traditional press, but Smith himself said that Fakira went back to Australia and is no longer on the team in one of his interviews on 1280 the zone with Scotty G.

Both. We sometimes offer "preferred walkon" spots to players while we are out recruiting. One example of that was Quinn Taylor. We also hold open tryouts where players can actually try out on campus.

Preston Medlin also was a late sign, but point taken I like Smith’s strategy much better.

You guys remember that one guy Smith signed late in August one year? Neemias Queta was his name I think.

I don't know if I'm considered traditional press but I reported Fakira's departure over a month or so ago.

I completely agree with Smith's reasons for exercising patience with the last scholarship, but it would be nice if he would use it soon so we would have something new to talk about. ;)

Is the SLC media calling Virginia or for not releasing this kid? Now he has to sit out a year before he can play.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that you always have to sit a year when you transfer in football or men's basketball regardless of whether or not the previous school grants a release. The release just allows the player to be on scholarship during the year that he is sitting out.

Yes. Basically, the creation of the portal was to create a way for players to legally publicize their intention to transfer. If a player is in the portal, then he has already received his release from his previous school and he is free to transfer wherever he chooses.

I would more consider you to be the new media that is making the traditional press obsolete. And, your reporting is why I knew that Fakira has left the team, the school and the country.

I take this back. Smith has not brought in an impact player in the middle or late summer along the lines of what the article was discussing because the final scholarship player will sit out a year. It was a contorted way of saying it, but the article was correct.

https://usustatesman.com/utah-state-agg ... o-anthony/ Final scholarship (I think) - he will sit out a year according to the article.

Please correct if any of that is wrong.

Do you think Smith will carry a 12 man active roster ?

Correct. Marco got the final open scholarship. There is a possibility that one or two more walk-ons will be added.

Thanks...I believe Alford is looking to have 11 play with two transfers sitting out. I suspect he will play more guys than Muss did,

Nevada still has 2 open scholarships to fill..
