I am a Golden advocate and am extremely pleased with his recruiting thus far. However, like Randy Shannon found out, the opportunity and the window for HS players to come to UM and play early is vastly decreasing! As our core players Deon Bush, Tracy Howard, Duke Johnson, and etc become more mature and experienced it will be hard for Golden to offer immediate playing time which his been our single greatest recruiting pitch thus far. The only way for us to continue to recruit for the future of this program is to win. Winning cures all and as playing time decreases a winning program is what will attract recruits to The U. For those lowering expectations for this upcoming season I urge you to reconsider. We need to win 10 games at the very least and make it the ACC Championship game. we already suffered one casualty In Alex Collins who's deciding factor clearly became playing time and being a #2 as opposed to the opportunity of possibly being the man at Arkansas. Although instances like that happen every year and to every team, we will encounter them much more frequently if we don't start winning.
Envy the past, Fear the future
Hell this time last year people were saying 2013 class was very important..(*shrugs*)
I wanna know who is predicting less then 9 wins A. And B I don't think it needed to be said that 2014 is an important recruiting class. Please tell me who so I can slap them. I don't think anyone is pretty self explanatory if you ask me.
I agree with you. However today as we sit without Matthew Thomas, Alex Collins, and Keith Bryant nobody is in panic mode. We had a class with quality players who will come in and contribute. Another year with misses like last though could prove detrimental to our future. We need to start being able to recruit and redshirt some elite players. I personally will judge Golden as a recruiter this year more than most because South Florida is rich with talent and immediate playing time is not a strong suit for us anymore. Add in the NCAA over our shoulders what will Golden do , say to get these kids to commit?
I think this year is crucial. We have the players to contend for the first time in a long time. This year could make the U's comeback but it will not necessarily break it if the team falls below expectations.
...........Even sponge knows its about the U
Duke will be a junior in 14 his back up will hopefully be dalvin cook n Sony Michel. Ryan Williams, Preston Dewey, or Kevin Olsen at qb. Phillip Dorset, rashawn Scott, Malcolm Lewis, herb waters, Stacy coley, and hopefully ermon lane at Wr. Sandland n waldord at TE. Beast oline led by bunche, flowers, mcDermot, feliciano, n Danny isidora.
An offence like that full of experience and alot of big play capability is gunna b putting up at least close 2 40 a game if not more
Could u imagine if Duke, flowers, Tracy, deon, Jenkins, mcCord, Kirby, and Eddie J all come back for 2015?
