I know the Conners personally and what you are saying is 100% false. UK has not backed off and if Conner wanted to commit today he could and it would be at LB.
I also think that a year or 2 of an additional bowl ban should happen because they did not self impose their bowl ban until the season was almost over and they had no chance to go to a major bowl. If they would have done it at the beginning of the year then that would be different but they did it after realizing they couldnt win the ACC. So I think that the NCAA should overlook the fact that they self imposed a bowl ban the past 2 years.
That was a complete misunderstanding on my part. When you said lets get 19 on Saturday I thought you were talking about the 19th commit and not the 19th straight victory. Thats my bad.
Don't forget about Gesicki. Hopefully he is number 19 and then Thompson being 20 on Saturday.
