Yes, you look at what is going on and so much of it is related to one thing.

We just don't have enough good players.

We need to get to a point where we retain our existing players and get full recruiting classes consistently.

If you look at a given recruiting class, say it is 20 players. We typically lose 8 or 10 to various things:
  • academic issues (1 or 2 tend to never even make it here)
  • trouble off the field
  • unwillingness to wait for their chance to play (transfers)
  • bad evals. Some turn out to not be P5 level players
  • injury/illness
I think in the Babers era if you look at it, you will find that only 50%, perhaps a little higher of the players we announce on signing day actually end up contributing to the bottom line of the program.

By that I mean break into the two deep and get meaningful playing time.

This needs to change. I think the staff is getting better here but more improvement is still required.

Agree with this assessment Tom


Somehow they can find a diamond in the rough but seems every time we bring a player that is going to be a “sure” thing they end up being busts
