OVC Media Day

Post by A_1985_grad » Mon Jul 23, 2018 9:26 pm

I'm glad to see the coach and team taking a circle the wagons approach going into the season. While it's hard to see more than a couple of wins on the schedule, maybe they can surprise a team or two.

Also be interesting to see who wins the quarterback battle, if there is one, and who'll get the carries out of the backfield. There's a lot of beef on the line, though much of it is underclassmen. May be a year or two away from turning things around.

Hard to win by any coach when its been fixed that you can only recruit local kids.

reading the roster, there are several from a long distance away. I guess there is still some kind of limitations tho

Smidge your right...an issue Ive been carping about for years...Happy to see our team is made up of kids from coast to coast including JUCO transfers and from states like FLA where high school football is a very big deal.

I think the powers that be have finally surmised we aint going to be successful with a bunch of kids from small regional high schools within a 200 mile radius of Murray. When your playing OVC teams that play SEC schools to a draw (Jacksonville State) in regulation your going to loose.

A long time ago, when I was there we had a 0-10 record..The coach was dismissed and the track coach appointed to take his place..Seriously..First thing he did was recruit a few ballers from Mississippi JUCOs. seriously..Mississippi. No one knew Mississippi had JUCOs much less played football. Well he knew what he was doing and we started winning. When I graduated we were playing for the OVC championship.

Smidge it was King that put the rope around Football and made us recruit boarding states and I think it was our President that loosened it.
Some one in the know like u might know when we started recruiting all the country. :?:

Unlike you Power, I’m not ”in the know”, I can only read the roster. :lol:
