This was discussed on several other boards at the beginning of the week. So far, nothing concrete has come out yet. But, usually where there is smoke...

Discussed on other boards until promptly taken down. Lots of rumors but no specific sources, especially not Munir or Charlie. Hmmm....

Listen, transfers are a very healthy sign of a programs future success. Look at other big time programs. They have transfers EVERY year and by very promising athletes.

 

Infusion of talent pushes out inferior talent. That is just the way of the system. With the corners we have now and the even more promising talent coming in, why wouldn't someone like Munir contemplate transfering for his own good.

 

Why not try and find a system that needs his services and maybe, just maybe he can get a scout or two to take a look at him in a couple of years after starting for that long instead of riding the bench behind more talent and NO chance at all to even get a shot.

 

Transfering does not nessecarily mean "jumping ship", many times it's more of putting themselves in better position to reach a goal.

 

When first team starters start transfering and recruiting suffers is when a program is in trouble. We have the exact opposite happening here.

 

Recruiting is flourishing and third and fourth stringers are seeing this and thinking about all of their options.

 

With great classes coming in, when I hear of (even a well liked) fourth team player transfering, I think of his future opportunities and most of all, OPEN SCHOLLY'S!!

 

At this point, we are sitting very comfortable right now.

Weed em out and back fill with better talent. This is a good thing. When guys start to leave that means they know they won't play and that just means there is better talent in front of them.

 

You also have to see were they go usually a place they will play and that indicates their real talent. Case and piint Zach Fraser, good kid good QB but not great and he is at UConn know were he can play.

 

Defection/attrition is good ofr us now just means we are rasing the level of competion and talent

I'm not contending that and I understand the way transfers work and the depth they usually indicate. My point is, and I realize this is just one man's opinion, why even speculate until there's something concrete out there? For all we know Charlie's thinking about moving him back to offense, trying to convince him there's a spot for him at ND. All the while it's reported he's a goner and fans are waving goodbye.

All we have right now are rumors that people have spread yet no one will attribute to a good source. There's probably a reason behind that.

I absolutely agree :D

 

Rumors are just that. I play with the rumor mill from time to time but there's no point in anyone really getting upset until the facts are out.

 

Rumors are fun but I tend to keep them on the speculation side and don't get serious about them until after so much smoke and you start seeing some sparks. THATS when it gets serious.

WE NEED A RUMOR PAGE :D

 

At times it really bugs me (I get some credible inside info and am not aloud to devulge the sourse, Your going from wiping your face, why the hell did you tell me this to i ca'nt tell you guys a thing but trust me... and why would you?

You guys know I tend to stay out of the recruitnik Biz, been a year since I posted a lock on 3 guys from a priest source. Other sites I hit I stay far far away from the recruiting sections. No one's gonna say like mike frank did that your stealing info. GRRRRRR still angry about that biz.

 

I get many FYI only, and confidential EM's that I can't devulge who, what where or when. It's frustrating for me but that is what is.

 

But if you can vision a scale.... This guys weighted for ND.

i agree except in our situation we are still short of a full roster. Especially on the OLine (which is why T Rob committing is huge). We couldn't even field two full teams for the blue/gold last spring b/c the o-line had to play for both offenses. I also agree with tchris that Prince could be a good cover corner, hopefully he sticks around.

 

Once we are back up to the full scholarship amount distributed evenly among the classes, then I wont really mind when a kid buried on the depth chart transfers.

The O-line became very healthy once the freshmen showed up in August. The transfer issue is fine, because were are stacked in the lower classes. The freshman, sophomore and junior classes in August are going to be teeming with talent. If we have transfers, it just helps us balance out our roster situation which is a little heavy in certain classes. We need some equilibrium.

a College Football team can never have too many offensive lineman. Five of them need to play at a time. There are often injuries, many season ending. And equally important, no matter how highly rated a recruit is, they don't always pan out (like any other position). Another transfer on the OL beyond Carufel would hurt the rebuilding process.

Not really, because we will have in the neighborhood of 15ish OL once the next class comes in and don't forget we have the guys we switched to DL who could be moved back. We are fine. Granted, we don't want recruit OL like Ty did, but I find OL less of a worry these days as I did a year ago at about this time. My worry is playmakers, now. We need guys at WR who can fly, and actually pan out. Richard Jackson/Gallup need to do something in addition to Grimes learning how to catch.

I totally agree and although Grimes had missed a few this season,,,,

 

He CAN catch!!!
