    Recruiting Forum Football Talk IV

    My point was the coaches may have never known Dobbs was a gamer if the QBs in front of him never got hurt. He may have transferred before year 3 if he had to wait behind the practice warrior QBs. IIRC, Dobbs first appearance was the 2nd half against Bama where he led TN to a couple TDs which...

    Agree. Dobbs may have never played at UT if all the QBs didn't get hurt in front of him. And it had to happen 2 years in a row before he got the permanent QB1 spot.

    Recruiting Forum Football Talk IV

    I keep seeing people saying Hooker would help the running game since the Defense has to respect him running also. The Defense also knows he cannot push the ball downfield. So Hooker is going to face many stacked boxes with 8 men in the box at times. He definitely didn't help the running backs...

    How Will NIL Affect Decommitments

    Another point .. If a recruit has an Agent "shopping" him with prospective schools to find what specific deals he can get if he signs with each school .. I would expect those deal would not be officially signed until the recruit enrolls in school. If I understand the new NCAA NIL rules...

    How Will NIL Affect Decommitments

    I guess a kid can always make deals that are not tied to a school that is recruiting him. If that is the case, you answered your original question. A decommit would not matter since his deals are not tied to a specific school. If his NIL deals are tied to a school where he is representing Bama...

    How Will NIL Affect Decommitments

    The NIL deals are still against the rules until the players are enrolled in school. If fact, it's a violation to promise NIL deals to recruits. We all know NIL deals are already being used or promised as incentives to recruits. This part would be almost impossible for the NCAA to enforce...

    Recruiting Forum Football Talk III

    would everyone that keeps complaining about 10 scholarship reduction in one year .. please read back a few posts. It has been explained that this year's seniors do not count against the 85 total this year due to a one time NCAA Covid rule for 2021. Therefore we can give back up to 14...

    Recruiting Forum Football Talk III

    We are currently at 82 scholarship players on the roster. However 11 of those are seniors that do not count against the 85 roster this year due to the free extra year all players got back from Covid last year. NCAA made a Covid rule that seniors will not count against the 85 total in 2021. So...

    Oklahoma and Texas have reached out to join the SEC (allegedly)

    Most logical geographically would be the following. Also would be semi balanced: West TX A&M LSU OU Mizzou Arky Ole Miss MSU East TN Vandy KY SC UGA UF Bama Auburn Play 7 inter division games each year and 1 or 2 cross division games.

    Jay Graham or Reggie Cobb ?

    Graham was a very good RB. Cobb was special. He was smooth and elusive and fast and was a great pass catcher as well. Cobb wheel route was deadly. Hate his career at UT was cut short.

    Israel vs Palestinians

    I was a software programmer for a government contractor back then. It was Israel. The US government panicked at the time on how to protect our own nuclear facilities as a result of Stuxnet. The malware had the specific serial numbers of the Iranian centrifuges. The malware would only effect...

    Israel vs Palestinians

    That was Israel that took out the Iranian nuclear facility with software bugs. The US under Reagan during the Cold War did take out a Russian oil facility with software bugs that pretty much bankrupted Russia. The wall fell shortly after.

    Recruiting Forum Football Talk III

    Not sure why people keep putting stock in which QB was running 1st, 2nd or 3rd team in the spring. Seems obvious to me that the coaches told all 3 QBs they would get equal reps and rotate with 1st team through the spring. Then evaluate all 3 after spring. Every practice report had a new QB...

    Recruiting Forum Football Talk III

    IIRC, the player has to not participate in any team activities in order to get the IC back. I kind of doubt it still applies if the player didn't participate due to being suspended. But who knows.

    What are the scholarship #?

    I have 3 former PWOs counted in my numbers (Kenny Solomon, Dayne Davis and Pak Garland). Maybe one of those are our difference. So from the bolded portion. We can expect UT to take at least 3 more transfers (2 if Milton is already counted) to use up the available back counts. Then any other...

    What are the scholarship #?

    I actually had UT at 82 counting Joe Milton. Not sure which other one we differ on. However, the 10 seniors don't count against the 85 next year so we technically have only 70 to 72 total for next year. That's why this is a good year to self impose scholarship penalties if we need to.

    I would agree with you if not for the pending NCAA penalties. We have never seen any coach try to recruit to TN under this scenario. Not Dooley, not Butch, not Pruitt. Big difference frying to recruit anywhere when the NCAA penalties have yet to be announced.
