    Wow. MP ran an I-formation with a HUGE fullback and the tailback was only 4 yards deep in the backfield. That means that the runner was going up the middle, no matter what. No bouncing the play outside when you're only 4 yards deep.

    Im guilty of transfer U. Its not meant as insult. It works because to his credit he has found the RIGHT transfers to add to the program to mix with the good collection of high school talent he has recruited.

    Re: 2017 Recruiting

    Another way to look at the transfer thought is where would our team be the last two years without picking up the transfers we did? I have this feeling that we wouldn't have two bowl wins in a row and most likely would not have been in those bowls. To add insult to injury, we might have lost two to USL!!

    Re: 2017 Recruiting

    Kenneth Dixon did not transfer in. Neither did our DBs or OLinemen.

    Suggesting that transfers make our program is an insult to those who were here 4 to 5 years.

    Turns out UL-L and Arkie state both sucked. We could have beaten them with nlulm's players.

    This is how I see it as well. It should be obvious to anyone who follows Tech football that we aren't totally reliant on transfers. We've only used them to fill immediate needs, either because of lack of depth or experience.

    Then why call us "transfer U"? What does that imply?

    It implies that we are good at finding transfer players that not only fulfill our needs, but we also put them in an environment that allows them to succeed. It does not imply that we're building the team with transfers.

    We are saying the same thing. It's the attempted brand I object to. It is unoriginal and speaks nothing to what I describe in post 16 or you describe here. If it were just about "transfers" everybody would be doing it successfully.

    Does it not?

    I agree that it isn't something we're trying to do, but the more you call attention to it the more it does imply that.

    On the other hand, we have to find the line on trumpeting it enough that high-quality transfers continue to approach us because they've seen some success stories here (and then we can evaluate who fits and who doesn't).
