Just saw a discussion elsewhere about a nightmare scenario involving Shea Patterson. Let’s say we accept his transfer. (1) It’s a reasonable scenario that Brandon Peters transfers. It’s not much of a vote of confidence. (2) that means O’Korn plays the bowl (whatever) (3) we still have to wait and see if Patterson is cleared to play in 2018 which would require him to sue the NCAA Let’s say we take Patterson and the NCAA holds its ground and he has to sit 2018. (1) again, O’Korn plays bowl (2) Peters probably stil transfers as the legal battle will take time to play out and Peters probably doesn’t want to sit around and wait to find out. (3) McCaffrey is your starter in 2018 with two true freshmen as the only backups while Patterson sits. (4) 2019 sees McCaffrey a returning starter competing with Patterson coming off a year on the bench. If the Patterson thing comes to be, Jim should hold off accepting his transfer until he’s cleared to play 2018 through whatever legal means. Otherwise it’s a pretty big gamble that could seriously damage the program.
