does this really need 3 threads?
This could be interesting.
Embree is asserting his authority early, exactly what this program has been lacking the past 5 years - Discipline and Accountability
or is he going to be another Josh McDaniels?
Lol! I think we are going to be okay, I didn't see Embree wearing any Redskin hoodies with cut off sleeves this year.
I guarantee you he is getting input from guys like shanahan and Mac about what he is doing.
This happens at every school. It sucks but it's part of the game. Good luck to Celestine and anybody else who's looking for programs here pretty soon.
Doesn't Celestine have to sit out a year somewhere? He is close to running out of eligibility, since he played in 2007, that's when the clock started.
He played a couple games in 2008, redshirted in 2009, and played in 2010. He's got one year of eligibility, but he doesn't have a year where he can sit out. He has to go somewhere other than a D1 school - maybe Juco or Div II?
Last I checked, Juco meant 2 year school so you don't play your 5th year there!
Simmons is apparently close as well to being gone. Sort of shines new light on why we are so desperate for WRs!
Embo is collecting scholarships back and is excited to inject his type of players into the program.
Not if he's released, I don't think.
So, I know this gets old to talk about, but our APR will take yet another hit.
The worst part is that our APR hits have come from players like these guys who have made little or no contributions on the field. Hawkins did a poor job on evaluating a kids potential to stay in school and their academic drive/interest. I'm all for signing some at risk kids but you have to do a better job on evaluating if a kid will actually pick up a book and go to class - Simas. I'm glad Embree is getting rid of some of these guys and will be freeing up some scholarships going forward. Most of these guys have had at least 2 and sometimes 3 chances to get it right.
Freeing up scholarships is all fine and dandy, but it doesn't do us any good if we're replacing those guys with a bunch of lunchpail guys. We need talent - lots of it.
I'm still very skeptical of the Berglund situation. I think that was a mistake. We'll see how it plays out. I'll be keeping a very close eye on what we recruit at QB this cycle.
so I wonder how many scholarships we are going to be able to give this cycle.
How was that a mistake? Embree didn't pull the schollie, Berglund decommitted. BB was the first recruit Embree visited publicly. Not sure what else he could have done besides keeping Kiesau which doesn't make any sense, you don't keep an assistant you don't want just to keep a player committed. That is cutting off your nose to spite your face.
You think we just amicably let our supposed #1 recruit walk away into the arms of Kansas? There is a reason why we didn't fight for him when Kansas came calling.
I for one would like to know the real reason/s.
I'm goddamn done addressing this :lol:.
:yeahthat: Only going to worry about the kids we do sign.
