Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
I figured we could have a common thread for all those that have entered the transfer portal.

Getting a little more serious.

Someone go lock McBride and Shropshire in their rooms and take away their phones. 03-lmfao

Hey, if the offensive players all transfer away. Surely we can fire the offensive staff before they can recruit any more.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
Is there a confirmation on RJS? Don't see anything on his social but he had kind of a teasing post a couple of days ago.

A good season for us is still not a great season for a WR though. He only got 23 receptions on the year*...while he made the best of what he got, there's just not enough targets in our offense for WRs to feel valued/productive. A tight end topped our receptions count this season, and...although that's not super crazy with some of the TE you see in college ball now, it doesn't bode well for a WR looking for more action. UTSA's running back only had one less reception than Johnson-Sanders this year.

Now you can say - "well...we're an old-school run-the-ball offense." But -
UTSA ran the ball 62 more times than us. Even with the extra championship game, that stat is telling.

Our offense is boring and I'm not at all surprised he's looking for somewhere else to get looks.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
Good players don’t want to play in a bad offense. Not sure who said it, but they were right when they said that what we run is meant for McBride and not really anybody else on the team. We don’t have a solid back up for him and don’t have a solid back up at QB, while also recruiting backups at skill positions from juco.

I tried to tell you our recruiting isn’t where it needs to be and the next caliber up of talent we should be recruiting doesn’t want to play in this offense. Some just acted like our offense had a vital part in our championships when our Defense has played well enough to require the bare minimum of our offense to win games.

Either Clark adapts or we can continue to bump our heads on the glass ceiling.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
The portal is going to be crazy this winter. The covid year put some guys on hold but there's going to be a TON of movement this year everywhere, from the top all the way down into D2.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
We really don't throw to wide receivers and we very rarely throw into the middle of the field(trying to minimize the possibility of interceptions). A lot of RJS receptions were shovel passes that, surprisingly for someone his size, he was exceptionally good at.

How many deep shots did we throw to RJS? Maybe 3 all year?

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
Also, if a guy is in the portal, is it safe to assume he will not be on the bowl roster?

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
Thus far, the portal entrants are older players - Moll, 5 years; Tyler infinity; RJS was an older JUCO when he came(I think) and has been here 3 years; Vardaman was a transfer(from Auburn?) who really hasn't played much anyway.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
Vardaman was a juco who had offers in high school from a bunch of SEC schools. But he's never played much here. Not really sure why. Maybe he can't play or maybe we didn't play him. Hard to tell with our OL where we've basically played the same 6-7 guys for 2+ years with very little subbing.

I doubt they will be on the roster. Even if they are I would expect coaches to start their back ups to get a better look at what they have next year. If there's a ton of transfers they'll use this as the first game of 2022

I thought RJS would step up and be our star WR after Mitchell and Watkins left last year.

RE: Players who have entered the Transfer Portal
I am worried about next years team pretty badly. Lost almost all of the OL, Lost ton of D, transfer portal at the moment is only taking not giving...i hate the one to say it....but this might be a rebuilding year.

If Clark doesn't start bringing in some immediate players, he aint leaving Bham anytime soon for his wife's sake
