Scoop #2 on a dreary Tuesday.

With bowl preparation, as well as trying to get as many players closed during the first signing window, we’re seeing a very busy staff being stretched between travel and practice.

The Inside Scoop – 12/4/17

Lots of recruiting. Coaches on the road again, official visit weekend coming up, and the latest on top targets. BJ Foster, Vernon Jackson, Tanner McKee, Class of 2018, Junior Angilau, and Rondale Moore. The Scoop.

Fridays in the Humidor: 12/1/17

Program, team, recruiting; it’s what we do, but rather than throwing Molotov cocktails throughout the 40 Acres we’re going to use a flashlight to illuminate the little things that are adding up to the bigger things. It’s like a mosaic with each pixel being it’s own picture, but as you step away all the pixels come together to create an entirely different and singular image. Right now some are predicting that image to be DKR on fire, or maybe Herman wearing one of those hats with a spinner on it, but the full image is nowhere near complete and I’d urge people to let the next couple months play out.

A look at the state of the offensive line

After the spring game Tom Herman voiced concerns over depth on the offensive line. I somewhat brushed those concerns off saying, “depth will only be debilitating if you have multiple injuries at the same time.” Then we found out Herman and Derek Warehime had a Murphy’s Law debt to finish paying from their previous year at Houston where anything that could go wrong on the offensive line did.
