New Recruits for 2022 - gonna ignore the negativity and look toward the future.


Recommended Posts

Nobody is disagreeing with being upset and pissed off about the program and the direction.  HOWEVER, this thread was started specifically to post info about and discussion of new recruits and nothing else.  It is easy enough to start another thread or to add to ones you have started about the direction of the program, the staff, the AD etc. etc. etc.  Why the continual posting of off-topic points is beyond some of us.

Again, this thread was started SPECIFICALLY to post info about and discussion of new recruits and nothing else.  Some people are interested in that.  They want to look at videos of kids playing weather HS players or potential transfers.

By the way Davis and Sweeney are both gone I think.  No Longer on coaches roster!  Sweeney surprises, Davis - HURRAY!

Surprised by this outlook.  Our office of line has been the Achilles’ heel of the team for many many years. Davis has a track record of offensive production at Northern Iowa, at Fordham, and a D2 school in Pennsylvania…. I can’t remember the name offhand. I understand getting rid of Davis’ based on last year‘s performance but Sweeney should’ve been gone a long time ago. A man actually seems like a really solid guy however, the office of line just never gelled nor had the studs we were promised. Damien Mincey is also off the coaching roster. He went back tp UMASS.  I know that Nate Byham adds the oline to his current coaching duties.  I’ve heard a rumor that Delaware’s former OC may be in line for the UA job.  He’s interesting because he had a good track record prior to Delaware.  Some blame him for Delaware’s issues.  Others say he was handcuffed by Rocco.

I missed Mincey but the special teams were a wreck.  Davis maybe a great QB coach but he is a poor OFF coordinator.  His play selection was just terrible.  No other way to say it.  I liked Sweeney BUT I think the O line coach has to be able to kick some butt - he was really easy going....maybe too much so.

I never saw that Sweeney was that involved in the recruiting.  He may have been but not as publicly as other coaches.   I mean I check who they are "watching" all the time - may not mean anything but it is something I follow.  You are correct that he states he is UMass RB coach!

I wonder if they are recruiting any more QB's. I know there are at least three on the roster but still another taller 'slinger' would be nice.  Gonna have a decent group of WR next season.

I agree, Delaware’s Jared Ambrose may be the new line coach.  Been doing a little research.  a BUNCH of the players and the coaches are 'following' him!

I woke up this morning to see this at the top of my Google portal page.  I didn’t search for it as it was just defaulted in.  Not sure if it was specific to me or just their news stream

Not negative, just a joke, wouldn’t he be better served joining the track team and get coached by Coach Vives.

Interesting - Anybody who was state champ in all of those is special.  I was a track coach for a long time too!  typically they were great FB players!
