  1. One thing people need to explain to me. The author refers to colleges and athletic departments generating “billions” and becoming “private Fortune 500 companies”. Besides millionaire coaches, who else is getting rich on the college side thanks to NCAA sports? Can you point to an SID or administrative assistant or professor or university president who is bankrolled by college sports? Essentially asking, who are the billionaires and millionaires who made a fortune on college athletics outside of college football and basketball coaches? It doesn’t happen. It’s a BS narrative. Very few people “get rich off the backs of these kids”. The money is mostly pumped back into the AD to support other programs and help the university. And therefore, the system isn’t nearly as immoral or exploitive as it sounds.
  2. Would you at least agree last year was the weakest we’ve been at WR since 2008? Then it’s just a matter of whether or not you think we got better this off-season. Sure, anything could happen. We aren’t fortune tellers. But on paper it’s a really bad room.
  3. I mean it kind of does though. That play wasn’t a fluke. Kid was a freak.
  4. Disagree about the true freshmen but your other points are true. True freshmen receivers typically don’t make big splashes unless they are otherworldly.
  5. When this happened I was so excited for his future. Another waste.
  6. They definitely weren’t trash. Davis was a discipline case and NCM’s career was botched, but he had some big moments. But regardless, young or old, talent is still talent. We don’t have much on campus currently at WR.
  7. No. Evaluate the position. Last year we had tons of drops, nobody with size, and nobody who can take the top off. Now we lose the best playmaker from the bunch in Kobe and the best deep threat (IF you can even consider Robertson that). Last year was the worst the room has been since 2008 and it got less talented this off-season.
  8. It’s still not as bad as the current room. We had Duke in 2015 at least going into the season. Ricardo actually had a great year, and we had reliable, experienced guys like Marcus Davis and Melvin Ray to contribute. Any of those guys would be our current WR1. 2016 was indeed a flop. But the room was chock full of talent. Two five stars in Nate Craig Myers and Kyle Davis. Slayton, Ryan Davis, and Stove contributed. Marcus Davis and Stevens were the vets. On paper, the 2021 room is extremely bad. It was an issue even before we lost Kobe.
  9. Yes. The worst. Easily. The receivers room was dreadful last year and lost two of their top three pass catchers without adding any stud recruits or transfers. The better question is how on earth do you think otherwise? Shedrick Jackson does not have any SEC caliber attributes, from speed to hands to size, and would not start anywhere else in the conference outside of maybe Vanderbilt. Javarrius is 5’8 160 pounds. Nobody else has even registered a catch. Look, I don’t know why some of you guys feel the need to argue with every single observation. But this just is what it is.
  10. There have been lots of receivers that would be OUR WR1.
  11. This is brilliant, start to finish. Harsin genuinely seems to be trying to change, but the arrogance and ignorant decisions he made prior to the near-firing were so severe that it’s going to be tough to salvage things. If the current Harsin arrived December 2020, we might be in a totally different position. I’m rooting for him but I wouldn’t put money on him surviving much longer.
  12. We have a couple guys on the roster, Javarius and Dawson, that could be serviceable. But you’re correct it’s the worst the receiver room has been since 2008. Anybody remember that year offensively?
