    Yeah, don't disagree, just think in a year where we didn't have a full season to recruit losing more players is going to be detrimental.

The rabid fan base, and CGM were never experienced by him. I'm not sure what he is looking for, but I hope he finds it. With as many transfers on the list as there are, he may not get what he is looking for. I would think he's hoping for a chance back home at IU, Purdue, or Notre Dame. We will soon find out.

        Hopefully, Ricky isn't one of them.

          And I internally debate the pros and cons of this reality. My scholastic program had a pyramid enrollment each year; if you weren't cutting it, you weren't asked back. Everyone is given a chance to shine; if they aren't doing well enough to reach these goals, maybe moving on is ok... and then I think about the need to re-recruit each year and how that puts a program behind a senior laden team who has stuck together and understand the system. Hence the internal debate.

          • I guess we also have to remember these kids came to play for Marshall. A coaching change is still a coaching change

              Yep. As much as I hate to say it, there isn't a transfer that would surprise me. Like you and others have said, this is still 3Gs team.

                I think on the last Talk Angry, Taylor mentioned some players wanting to opt out of the year when Marshall left, but IB and staff were able to keep the team together.

                  Taylor also said this. Said it's the new norm and not to read too much in to it.

                    It isn’t just the players. It’s their handlers, AAU coaches, and relatives, all of them grown ass adults giving them mentoring advice from outer space, mostly centered on how good they are and a change of scenery will fix everything. Also, don’t forget the third degrees of tampering going on from other schools.

                      • At this point, any player for any team who’s not projected to be a starter has a high likelihood of transferring.

                          Most of them have been told so, from parents/coaches to recruiters both at the school chosen as well as recruiters from other schools. (As mentioned by Shoxlax)

                          • Transfers are nothing new. My guess is this will seem crazy for a while then will all settle back down hit an equilibrium that’s close to, maybe one or two more per year, where it’s always been.

                                Thanks Jay! Your ideas are always so grand! Can’t wait til the $$$ starts flowing in and the charge call is eliminated from the game. Should be fun!
