    It is a contact period but we are also in the Dead period until 1/12. Coaches can contact kids and set up visits but no visits to campus until after tomorrow.

    I wonder with Daoust now on Lesters' staff as co-DC at WMU will they go back after Elmore. Just musing as Lester and Daoust are following him.

    Mike Greenberg is killing Edsall on Mike and Mike this morning. Asking the larger question about what "commitments" really mean, but asking how Edsall can sleep at night after pulling a kid's scholarship so close to signing day, especially after calling him previously and ensuring the kid that he has a scholarship at UConn, even after the coaching change.

    Well, in his defense, Dandy Randy just made another scholarship available in the 2017 cycle. :mad:

    Mike Greenburg is a complete idiot when it comes to college football. He's un-listenable on the subject.

    What Edsall did is a dik move but Fleck did it to and every other new coach has done it. If Greenburg would actually take 5 minutes to look it up he'd know that. And I do have my reservations that the kids version of the story is 100% accurate. There's always two sides.

    I agree on all counts. I should add that Greenberg did mention that every school has probably done this over the last 5 years. His issue wasn't as much specifically on Edsall, although it is amusing that it mentioned him often, it was regarding the whole idea of a "commitment" by both the school and player, because there is no commitment at all on either parts. The thing I take issue with, if true, is that Edsall called the kid in early January and assured him his spot was safe, only to call him a couple weeks later and tell him there was no room for him. That is a bigger dik move than the standard dik move that most coaches do, where they just stop calling the kid and his coach.

    that's the kids' version of the story though and we can't hear the coaches side of things.

    I see your point, but given how big of a DB Edsal is...could you believe a single word that he spewed?

    I certainly wouldn't.

    I agree, that's why I clarified with "if true". Bottom line is, they have to come up with a better system.

    I don't think given Randy's history that he deserves the benefit of the doubt.

    I heard he's more of an HBack at SU than a DT recruit. Would be interesting to see him on offense if that is the direction they go with him (and he signs with SU)

    I agree which is why I think he ends up with Daoust at Western.
