I think the last few guys we took a chance on burned us, so honestly I'd rather wait a bit.

Phatcat may be a genius... :shock:...If that is the DL that Phatcat said was coming i would be PUMPED. I watched a few Texas games this year and remember him. I would be a little surpised if he came though.


He's from San Antonio -- a long way from Euless, but you never know. Barnett, as you probably know, is from Euless. Maybe Barnett and Howell are good friends? Howell was 4-star player coming out of high school.


He would be quite an addition to the team, that is for sure. I'm going to post a link I found, which indicates there might be a bit more going on.

Here's the link to the blotter referred to in the comments.

IF, and I say IF the kid has some issues, I think the Bobcat team environment is strong enough to absorb and help a player like him. Coming to MSU might be good for both Calvin and MSU.


So if he transfers to MSU it is alright, but if he transfers to UM it is the same old griz bringing in trouble just to win? Just saying. I think the griz have done enough of that and their current situation highlights the potential problems with that. It has not been so long ago that the cats had the same problem. I think it is a slippery slope to say that the "team environment is strong enough to absord a player like him". It only takes one A-hole to ruin it.


Yeah, thats about right

Please elaborate. Who and how were we burned to the point that we should not give someone a second chance?

How does waiting a bit change anything?

In my opinion, you take a chance with every kid you bring in. You just have to determine how high of a chance your are willing to take and how short of leash you have. I have confidence in this staff that they will not take chances that they believe have a high risk of blowing up or being a cancer in the locker room.

Thomas bros, Spirlin (rumors though), and to a lesser extent Burton. I say wait only because I don't want to have apr issues.

I have seen Vunipola play for the past two years and you have a very special player. I believe you are recruiting him as an OLB. His quick and nasty. He is really 6'1 closer to 6'2 with little to no body fat. This kid could easily put on an additional 10 to 15 lbs. When watching his video clips, keep in mind that Fe'eu played the entire season hurt with a bad ankle, knee and a nagging hamstring. Off the field he is a very polite, very humble, high character young man. Very happy he is going to a good program.


I have to admit... I wish the Griz got Vunipola.

Hey Pitt, any word on the QB Malik Watson???


Vunipola was offered by Montana and Eastern Washington, but Montana St did a very good job recruiting him. Kudos to coach Kane Loane. Made a very positive impression on Vunipola and his family.

Watson committed to Montana but has not signed anything. From what little I know, it maybe grades related. Watson is raw but has enormous upside. Biggest arm is high school football I have seen in a while. An absolute cannon. Best arm in our area, which is saying something because three other QBs in our area, Jeff Lockie (Oregon) , Bart Houston (Wisconsin) , and Zack Kline (Cal) are all D1commits.

Don't forget that we took a chance on the ex-griz kid too (homec)?, but then again Daly got a second chance and it seems to have worked out well for both the Cats and him.

My view is that kids will screw up from time to time, its ok to give some second chances but if the kid doesn't take advantage of the opportunity then they need to be sent down the road rather than covering it up and going on like nothing happened like SOME places do.

Okay. I don't consider any of those to be a burn. Kids are going to be recruited and not work out. It happens every year and I believe that some of that is worked into the APR as there is no way the NCAA expects 100% of recruits to stay and graduate. I would think the coaches have a pretty good handle on where they need to be for APR.

He was shuffled off into the dustpan of history while Alexander Graham Bell got all the credit.




ok....that was pretty bad.
Even for me.
:oops:

Edit: It only took me three days to realize that I mixed up Bell with Edison.

Mac Brown wouldn't let him out of his scholarship until spring ball was done. He wanted to transfer here in January.
