Next few months will be key for long-term success of program. Significant risks.
We need to: 1. Keep athletes and coaches healthy 2. Minimize transfers and decommitments. 3. Keep Ryan Day happy 4. Develop next QB. 5. Keep Trey Sermon here 6. Get Johnson and Smith ready to fight for spring football. 7. Become leaders on next set of issues re paying players. They should be paid. And schools that are progressive on amateurism issues will get better players.
Some programs will get weaker. No Big 10 team will get stronger. We need to hold our place as much as possible.
