No, he didn't have good enough HS ratings numbers and couldn't get ahead of Brian Griese, so he didn't make it through the gbg gate.

Hear all you want just this week after the Basketball game Sumrall press conference he stated he liked what he saw in Hughes and Horton, he also stated priority was to current players and backfilling from the Portal. Listen to the coach and weep, lol. Competition breeds winners, may the best kid win. You guys really sick in the head, like Kai is the only Quarterback out there. Like I said your sick post shooting at me are read by parents and recruiters and are so non productive and pathetic by you guys,
Also think about the other guys on the team that may like Kai and support him taking the next step, you have no clue the ramifications of your postings.

I guess the buyout info gbg posted was just more of his made-up BS, or what he calls "deep dive analysis reading between the lines."
😂😂 Of course it was. Fantasy stuff—but I think he actually believes his own bs.
Worse thing is, he spams it across multiple threads in HUGE TYPE. He must need glasses.
You know the worst thing is you have no clue of the current world of College Football. Just as important as NIL is the buyout clauses in Head Coaching Contracts. It has become a money-making tool by College Athletic Programs. Not only does it solidify the retention of good coaches it provides money for the Athletic Departments to hire the same level coaches or better coaches as they move up the ladder. It gives schools the money and revenue to outbid other programs for the best coaches. Without the buyouts programs lose money at each coaching change and fall further behind. With good buyouts they can continue moving up the ladder, called best in Business Practice for Athletic Programs. More education boys!!!

If the buyout is not big fire Harris now, Large buyouts are commonplace for College Football Head Coaches currently, much time and money is invested in hiring coaches' protections are a given!!!
-Get in the game fellows large buyouts are the tradeoff for large contracts nothing fantasy about it. Coaches are ready to sign large buyouts in exchange for large contracts above what they normally command!!!

Schizophrenia at its best--alleging that any of us think Kai is the only QB out there. Absolutely hilarious.

At the risk of being redundant, a post by the Wave on Wave blog yesterday referenced an imminent transfer by a former 5 star PAC 12 WR. Is there anything to this.

It's a reference to Mario Williams from USC. Someone claimed he was on campus yesterday. No idea if there is any validity to it. He's the one that fumbled the kickoff.

He saw that we had twice as many fans as Southern Cal at the game (which is pretty much true).

Yes he did visit. His Instagram has a picture of him arriving in Nola a few days ago.

I must say, Sumrall sure has more interview energy and media presence than Willie ever did. Willie often responded to media questions with a "I can't wait til this s#it is over with" tone in his responses.

He's added Kyle Schexnayder to the staff. He's a recruiting specialist. He is an alum of Holy Cross and UNO and coached at Curtis:

Can CJS make this program into a Miami type program from the 80s? That school was a small private school in a major market floundering for a long time before Howard Schnellenberger took over.

A lot harder now with the money involved and us not being in a power conference, but it can be done. Also, unlike back then, if you do build up and get really good, the P5s will just find reasons not to play you, whereas back then you just became one of them.
