No way. DIdn't you hear? They brought in a second JC QB, so they're going to instantly be good now.

Does anyone really think that UM will actually be able to make the playoffs in 2018, besides delusional UM fans?
Great time to be a BOBCAT!

I see them losting 2 of their last 3 and either Sacramento State or North Dakota. Sears not only recruits great athletes but he's a good coach who always has good teachers on his staff. They have almost their entire 7-4 team back this year. Injuries have hurt North Dakota recently but they play the type of football Hauck plays. Special team play will be the difference here.

If they have the same type of summer program and their strength and conditioning is what it was when Hauck was here before, they will surprise a lot of people. I recall what kind of high school athlete Sims was (a kid that big to be that good in the 400 is amazing) and that kid from Whitefish...

Edit. Chuck Daly tried to get Dennis Rodman to try track--both the 200 and 400 (can't imagine what his 800 would have been). It is difficult for me to watch a former track athlete like Hauck not encouraging a kid like Nagler to become a multievent athlete, even though I understand he would have to leave Montana to get the necessary coaching to get him to the Olympics.

Sounds like Favaroso was unhappy with the new DC. He went from being a starter with 13 TFL and 6.5 sacks to being third string in spring?? Then the DC laughed at him when he approached him. That program is in disarray. It also sounds they are going to lose their starting RB in Calhoun as well. Potentially 4 significant contributors gone from program since Hauck took over. Wow.

Favaroso is also a graduate transfer with 2 years to play. He will graduate with a business degree in 3 years at 3 different colleges. I think that is significant. The optics of the DC laughing at a student-athlete that got it done like that in the classroom is horrible.

Agreed. And from what I understand, this new DC has a history of arrogance at previous stints with questionable results. Griz fans are already starting to question Hauck’s choice and they haven’t even played a game yet. I have a feeling that Bobby will wish he stayed in San Diego by the end of the season.

Maybe, but he'd never see the field here.

Not sure if he would never see the field, but for the first time in years, we don’t desperately need a transfer on defense.

The reaction in Grizland is comical. Some fans are saying that he wasn’t any good and they don’t need him. Some are blaming the coach while some are blaming the player. In the meantime, Favorosa has received multiple offers including FBS offers. On top of it all, Egriz has removed or locked the threads regarding Favorosa, Calhoun and coach Baer. The ****** show continues in Grizland.
