The vaunted West Florida Argonuats lost to whatever "Carson-Newman" is the year they won the title. I'll take the team with 75-85 scholarship players over the one with 36 scholarship players

Go on their roster and you will see most are D1 transfers. So there goes your scholarship theory.

Why didn't they stay in D-1? Have they transferred back up to a better school?

 

We've already wasted too much time on this ?

And like you got anything better to do today. Please! Remember grade casualties can hit these guys and that doesn't reduce the talent level.

FBS teams are allowed a maximum of 85 players receiving athletically based aid per year, with each player on scholarship receiving a full scholarship. FCS teams have the same 85-player limit as FBS teams, but are allowed to give aid equivalent to only 63 full scholarships

West Florida is D2 though that division maxes out at 36. Can't speak for West Florida, but most PSAC teams, which is a very good D2 conference, only offer in the 20s.

I hear our 3rd string kick holder in going to enter the portal  tomorrow. Expected to “move up” to either Otterbein of Maine or North Central Pennsylvania Tech. Both are Division 4 powerhouses. Stay tuned.

 

But, more importantly, does either schools stadium have cleaner bathrooms than ours?

Not surprised by those numbers. A lot of xoaches are holding off signing portal kids until after spring football when they have a better handle on what they need.

 

Lyons seemed to do a decent job of long snapping. It's an important role to fill. Maybe they borught in a bigger, more athletic kid. Time will tell.

The inactivity in the portal could be any number of things.  It could be a staff that wants to stick with their own recruits rather than risk taking on another team's problem.  It could be that the staff is just bad at recruiting the portal.  It could be that kids in the portal are looking for a better situation and don't see a team with 1 win on two seasons are a better situation.  Certainly, one win in two years doesn't make it an easy sell.

 

In any event, this program needs players that can contribute.  There are kids in the portal that meet that description.  The staff needs to figure out a pitch that overcomes the initial perception of a program in disarray and make an effective pitch around playing time and being a part of building something special.

Heck UMass is even participating.

There are so many players in the portal right now and so little scholarships available. I'm sure the staff is doing their due diligence and will use the majority of the 4-5 or whatever they may have on players they think can help the team out immediately. We are in the middle of a semester so there is really no a reason to rush it. Not like getting a commit now means a player will be on campus immediately and be able to participate in spring ball. At this point the earliest would be summer workouts/camp. Not to mention, just because we don't hear something doesn't mean nothing is happening. Our coverage blows.
