Sounds like Shyheim Battle is not returning and moving on to the NFL draft…he did have his additional COVID year available and some thought he might come back but oh well.

We also have to pick up another kicker now?

Vibe seems to be that we're getting Noah Rogers but I have no proof other than cheeky twitter posts being vague.

^^They said Noah Rogers is coming and he's bringing Marvin Harrison Jr with him. Also he's apparently bringing Marvin Harrison Sr too if the staff can figure out a way to get Sr more eligibility

Mimms in the portal

He probably wasn't going to get many touches next year anyway with Waters, Paylor, Grimes, Noah Rogers, Anderson, Joly all getting attention

Also, having fewer rushing yards than your QB and WR also isn't ideal.

Yeah we really need someone who can teach these kids how to get away with murder

Mimms should have no shortage of suitors, being the best short yardage back in the nation. Do you guys think he'll go to Georgia or Alabama?

Who gives a shit if our D sucks next year, if we can put up 50 points every game?

Concepcion/Rogers/Waters/Paylor/Anderson/Joly/Grimes/Smothers/McCall should be pretty fun to watch, hopefully nobody pulls a hammy

If you've used up your eligibility and you make a post about declaring for the draft, you should be fined a $100 confusion fee payable to me

Absolutely.

Friendly reminder, your eligibility clock started the minute you became a full time college student at a school with NCAA sponsored sports, whether or not you participated in athletics.

Insteresting image from @statsowar on Twitter (https://twitter.com/statsowar/status/1742314315762561078). Grayson McCall is in a pretty good spot from last year -- somewhat low ADoT, but in a good, slightly above average range of catchable passes. He's basically next to Jack Plummer, who I think was pretty solid at Louisville this year. Neither of the NC State QBs from last season made the list, so a more direct comparison is difficult.

Charts like that make my head hurt when looking for specific players/teams. The ones with just logos and no names are even worse. Theyre nearly impossible to read.

Plummer fuckin sucks. They won in spite of him.

Also depth of target seems incredibly influenced by offensive scheme and not necessarily related to QB skill.

Plummer was fine, which is all I'm asking for at QB at this point. Not explosive, and he wasn't gonna win you games, but very fundamentally solid and not gonna really lose you a game either. Louisville had a good defense, a solid run game, and an ok passing offense and made it to the ACC Champ Game with 1 conference loss and two losses total before post-season. I think we check all those boxes for next season, and wouldn't hate that result.

You're probably the same person who called Kyle "Honda" McCord cause he wasn't game-breaking enough for you.

That is a valid criticism of this chart, but it's also balanced out by the Y axis. Of course someone in a west coast Coryell offense is gonna be far right, but catchable passes -- not completion percentage -- really shows where their talent level is at doing what they're asked, which is the blue line. Grayson is above that average line, so in other words, he's above average at delivering a catchable pass on the average throw he was asked to make.

I feel like a more applicable missing metric is level of competition, sun belt for Mccall vs acc for plummer. The defenders he will play against next season will mostly be a step above what he saw last few years, speed of the game will increase some.

JAG Plummer and Honda McCord are very funny nicknames.

^ JAG Plummer is pretty good, I gotta admit.

^^ That's also fair. My main takeaway is that some of the guys who got railed for 'holding their teams back' weren't really as bad as their team was, but level of defense is certainly a consideration.

I mean i watched zero Ohio State games so i have no opinion on McCord. I watched multiple Louisville games and Plummer was completely unimpressive if not bad.

Maybe this is a common take, but my take is not that we have 8 super talented receivers and will have to figure out how to share the ball but that we have 8 decent odds scratch offs which is still way better than having 1 good bet and 7 low odds bets. Just need two of these guys to pop for success

^^ yes that’s definitely a better way of looking at it. Also like 4 of those WRs we’re excited are true freshmen. I don’t expect a ton out of them right away. A couple probably redshirt anyways.


As exciting as Noah Rogers is, he hasn’t played college ball yet so….hes still unproven in that regard.

But yeah we’re upgrading the position…but there’s still some uncertainty around these guys.

I like having 1 good bet and 7 decent odd scratch offs. Better than 8 scratch offs. Also much better than 8 coupons for half off when you buy 2 cartons of Marlboro Reds
