Re: Early Signing Dates for Football

This would work just like basketball/baseball/volleyball/softball....all of those sports sign before their senior seasons. One thing that you'll see is teams being less willing to allow certain "commits" to sign early. In that regard, it will help the recruit determine how much a school really wants...

Re: Zach Zubia

Zubia is already enrolled. He can't leave without sitting out this year, but I don't think he's going anywhere. He should be healthy enough to be a DH or play 1B, but I think we've got a logjam with Hunter Williams and Montalbano (who I don't think will be able to catch bc of his Tommy John...catche...

Re: Baseball Coaching Search

He'd be a good recruiter. California has a lot of great players who can pay the hefty tuition. There haven't been many good (or great) players coming out of the NOLA area specifically in a while. Tom Walter has NO chance at the job from what I'm told. Media (the Mackels specifically) are pushing for...

Re: Coach Pierce

My take on Allen leaving...if he thought that Pierce had a good shot at getting Texas, there's no way he leaves. Pierce could still go, but he's clearly their backup candidate. We all know what happens to those guys at good programs...if they aren't successful quickly, they get fired. My gut feeling...

Re: Thakarius Keyes

Good frame, can run. Surprised at how good he looked in his highlights. Might be one of those players who was just overlooked. These kind of guys usually end up going to JUCO then transferring to Miss State, Ole Miss or Tennessee as juniors.

Re: Next Mens Basketball Coach

I think when TD said he'd get us a winner, he meant that he'd get us someone on the rise versus someone on the way down. That's why I'd look more to the mid to low major coaches who are on the way up versus re-treads and people who have never coached before. I'm not saying that hiring a guy who has ...

Ed could clear all of this up easily, but he won't because he believes he shouldn't have been fired.

Re: Tough loss: Osetkowski to transfer

None of the players on this current roster are irreplaceable. Osetkowski has turned into a pretty good player and we'll miss his best years, but if he doesn't want to be here we're better off without him. Same with the freshmen. They have talent, but if they're going to leave because Conroy got fire...

Re: Tulane Offers Tyriek Starks, Warren Easton QB

The timing would indicate that Starks is going to Kansas. I don't believe he's been on campus and he hasn't visited Ga Southern so the only school he's visited is Kansas. I don't think this says anything about our pursuit of the other 2 QBs. I think we're covering our bases in case we miss out. I'd ...

Kyler Murray will probably transfer to a JUCO for the Spring at the very least so he can play baseball. Don't be shocked if he never plays football again. He'd go high in the MLB draft in June if eligible and willing to sign.
