this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
another spring game question
Hoke ran an actual game at SDSU last year. That being said we only have 63 scholarship players available this year. I think we may be too thin at some positions, especially D-line to run an actual game this year.
In Spring you've lost your seniors but haven't yet brought in your freshmen (excl. EE's). I agree we're thin (in both lines) for an actual game, but it seems like every team would face the same issue with limited players available
We were thin at D-line last year running a 3 man front so running a 4 man front for 2 teams may be tough. I would like the NCAA allow spring games against other schools. It would be cool to have the big schools bring in mid-majors.
potential DT's: Campbell, Martin, Washington, Ash, Talbott, RVB?
potential DE's: Roh, Wilkins, Paskorz, Black, Heininger
It would be thin but we have the bodies.
I'll have to shuffle my workload but I can probably make myself available to play DE. I still have all 4 years of eligibility remaining . . . Should I call Hoke?
A shame the dude didn't pan out a little better, he had a pretty solid offer list that included Cal, Arizona State, Minnesota, Nebraska, & UCLA. He was also a 4 star according to Scout, albeit as a TE, and his pops played in the League.
Should we get a "Let's play Slippery Rock for our spring game!" campaign going? That'd be badass.
I would also love to see a real game. I mean we may be a bit thin, but I feel it is much more competitive and more enjoyable for the fans and the team. If the NCAA would change the spring rules I think it would be a drastic improvement for college football. Not only do I think it would create more interest for the sport, especially during its down season, but would assist in the rankings. I realize the lack of practice time, freshman, and weak potential opponents, but I mean the preseason rankings have been rather bad as of late and I feel it couldn't hurt things
He played a full game at SDSU, hopefully he'll do the same here.
