On the contrary, I don’t think Fields has been great either. He didn’t look ready at Student Appreciation Day by any means, and wasn’t great at the spring game either. Yet everyone is ready to crown him the automatic starter. Yes he can run, but I don’t think the Qb run game is a huge factor in Ryan Day’s offense moving forward. Other than the fact that he’s a 5 star recruit and Baldwin was a 3 or 4 star, Fields hasn’t done a ton in my mind to separate himself. But he’s the starter and Baldwin is the clear backup?

I heard the other day that nobody, including the players, knew who was starting in 2015 until minutes before the first drive. That’s a horrible mismanagement, not even considering the mismanagement of the situation the rest of the year. Regardless of when we know, as long as the coaches and team know a week or two before the first game, they’ll be alright.

You can coach ball security, accuracy is harder to address. Even Fields deep ball to Victor was under thrown. And while he is a great runner and showed that Saturday, a lot changes when the defense is allowed to go full speed and put people on the ground.

Again, I still think he will be the starter this fall. But Saturday was unimpressive in multiple ways. I was at the Student Appreciation day and he looked the same outside of one big run. Most people just assume he’s the starter but from what I have seen, he’s not impressed me.

Gonna be harder to tell who’s actually playing well (especially on the defensive side) when they’re barely making contact. So much changes when you limit contact, it’s hard to judge what they’re gonna be like in a real game. Who knows if a receiver will make the same catch when they know they might get popped. Sure a defender might be in position, but that doesn’t mean jack shit if they can’t get him to the ground.

I understand not wanting to get guys hurt in a spring game, especially guys that are in the 2,000 rep club. But for everyone battling for a position, you’ll never convince me that you don’t find the most out by going full contact. Pryor would have looked like a great safety last year if all he had to do was come close to a guy, and we see how that turned out. I’m taking everything that happens on Saturday with a very large grain of salt.

From a team standpoint, this would be ideal. Some players might be hesitant to do this though. But I wouldn’t think Diallo would feel that way because it seems he wants a staff that will develop him over time. He seems to understand that he’s raw and won’t be making the jump to the NBA after one year.

Losing CJ and Woods might be bigger losses than most people anticipate.

That being said, we are replacing them with CJ and DJ. Every other contributed is returning with a year of experience. Top recruiting class coming in that can make an immediate impact. More quality depth.

I think 15-ish is about right. Fringe top 25 is the floor and as for the ceiling? Well, that’s top 10 and higher. This team could be a good one.

I know i be in the minority but I for one am very happy Arnette came back. He’s improved the last couple years even if it doesn’t seem like it, and I expect him to take the next step under Hafley. Even if he’s not expected to be an All-American candidate, he should garner conference recognition, which isn’t bad for your second or third corner.

I can’t, because I have to take a Capstone class my last semester of school, and it is only offered in the spring.

Sign of a good program is assistant coaches moving on. Now it’s just up to Holtmann to find a replacement who is just as good! Best of luck to Schlage!

On the other hand, having the lead recruiter leave the school right before a player who we want and need is about to commit is not a good thing. Hopefully this doesn’t change his decision.
