Everybody will be dealing with it, including BYU.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
There's quite a few 3* QBs in the portal, so hopefully we can find one who will push and compete in the spring.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
I don't think anyone on here, who is being honest, watched Dylan this season and thought he was special, or a transcendent player, or a game changer. He is a game manager. He has decent mobility. His long ball is hit or miss (we left several touchdowns on the field this year due to bad under or overthrows). He had some really bad games. He had some bad decision making - holding onto the ball too long and taking sacks in poor situations, and also slid too early to get some first downs a couple times.

All in all, I'd be pretty happy with him as our starter. He definitely improved a lot as the season went on, but he doesn't excite me. If there is someone that can push him, or is a big talent, go after him hard.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
I thought Dylan had a heck of a season considering he missed all of last year. He has some room to grow but also showed a lot of growth as he gained experience. He played really well against Marshall and UTSA, the two toughest games of the year, and he very specifically improved in the areas we criticize such as holding the ball too long, not feeling the pressure and not dumping off when a play isn't there.

He didn't look so hot vs. UTEP; some of that was UTEP and some things they did defensively. But he was definitely not good that game.

Regardless, we need him to take up up another level next season. He's not going to have Prince as a safety valve who is a nightmare mismatch and he's not going to have a slot who is 6-4, 215 with the ability to turn a shovel pass or a quick out into 60 yards by breaking initial tackle.

Dylan is going to have to make throws he wasn't required to do as much this season, and he's going to need to be accurate and on time.

Interesting take from the Fresno State quarterback who entered the portal and has already decided to return to Fresno after all.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
A few people had asked if the players who had entered the portal would be playing in the bowl game, with the assumption they would not. The game notes were posted today, and none of the transfers-to-be were on the depth chart, so that answers that.

Obviously, the two that hurt immediately are Raejae Johnson-Sanders and Lucious Stanley--especially if McBride is not able to go. That would leave us with Brown and Wooden, and maybe Gates at RB. Lucero is now the back-up to Hopkins, which shouldn't be a factor.

The guys on the blazer victory podcast said it looked like McBride would be ready to go for the bowl game.

That is certainly good news. I didn't feel very good about our chances without him on the field.

The fact he feels the need to make this apology video at all is sickening.

If there was ever a guy born to recruit it’s Prime. I’ve watched a couple of his games and I’ve been impressed with the game plans and how hard the kids play for him

Would love to see Jackson State vs UAB in the home opener next season on Labor Day weekend. That would pack the place.

That matchup needs to happen. Which means our AD won’t go for it.

They already have an opponent in place for the home opener. (Hint: It's not Jackson State).

Hopefully Alabama St or Alabama A&M. Why hasn't it already been announced?

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
The question is....who will enter the transfer portal now that the season is over? I am afraid after yesterday that there will be some serious attempts at poaching going on. I hope all the good feelings of the great bowl win will keep most of them with us.

Honestly, you shouldn't worry about it. Leave the worrying to the coaches.

The transfer portal can work the other way as well. With a strong finish to a “rebuilding” year, we might end up with some transfers from other teams and not just our players leaving.
