In the past I was always kind of anti-JUCO, but with this team, I am tired of waiting. We need an influx of talent ASAP to actually be able to get other talent to come here.
I think there has to be some mega-athletic HS QB that BCS schools are slotting to be a safety or WR...but who really wants to be a college QB. These kinds of kids have a great chance to be successful in the MAC. If we choose a JUCO, so be it. But I would also not rule out an "athlete" at the position. It could make the Zips competitive just as quickly, and not just for 1 or 2 seasons.
If Ianello can't get a couple impact WR's for 2011, we will need a QB that can make plays on his own.
Obviously, Nicely has a lot better chance for success if we get some real WR's too.
WR's gotta be the primary focus for recruiting right now.
I agree that we need more WR, but I can't think of any position that we are strong at.
The d-line is a huge concern for me. Yes, we have depth today, but most of them are juniors. We have no separation in elegibility
. In 2 years we will be starting an all freshman DL or close to it.
Bowers leaving is bad. He looked like a future stud. Hopefully Alexander returns to form next year.
We may already have the QB in Potts and D'Orazio(sp) that you are talking about.
Thin at LB, thin at safety, thin at OL and DL.
I don't care how good of a recruiter coach I supposedly is. If the team keeps playing like this, nobody will want to come here. To recruit you have to win. To win you have to have good recruits. It's the chicken and the egg logic.
I have to go with Buck on this one. We must simply have more separation in elegibility. Having no separation in elegibility is unacceptable.
