We do things differently now. No sense in complaining about it because it isn't going to change.

The point is that with the first new coach from outside the program since Jerry Moore, you'd think App would want to put more information out there, not less. From a marketing stand point it doesn't make sense, and from a fan excitement standpoint (not the good ol' boys club) it doesn't make sense. You would think recruits who may be trying to follow App may be a bit disappointed at the JV level coverage as well.
What information are you going to even get from “daily updates”? I’ve read daily updates during the SS years behind pay walls and always found them pretty useless. Especially considering we pretty much know the depth chart. In the end this is just another very small thing to complain about. If Drink starts taking L’s and is still this guarded from the media without answering questions then it should be a problem.
Right now, with so little information of any kind other than the coach speak from Media Day, no one outside the Program has any real idea of what's going on. In September none of it will really matter, per say, but App has a mini-battle for the Carolina's coming up this season and it would be great to see some enthusiasm from official sources.
Note: This isn't purely for selfish or unselfish reasons. We all wait 8 months for Football to come back around and it only lasts about 4-months. Information is the driver of program excitement in many ways, particularly with a Rookie Head Coach and new system in place.
I demand more information with "Pride, Passion, & Purpose", because that's how I live my life.
W’s are the driver of program excitement. 24 days from now, you’ll have all the information need.
As much as I know you want to validate your scalding hot take, I can promise you that you aren’t missing DBG overtake ZT’s job.
I haven't once referred to the need for information on QB's in this thread. I didn't refer to the need for information on any specific position group in this or any other thread.
Other posters here have echoed my sentiments that the coverage is JV and that in today's world of instant access to most all information, the lack of information can be construed, right or wrong, as a lack of professional ability in marketing. Information drives marketing of the team, building hype, recruiting, season ticket sales, Yosef Club donations, etc.
Attacking my motivation for requesting more information isn't a valid form of argument. Truth be told, attacking anyones motivation when arguing a point invalidates any premise and conclusion you've reached. In this case, I haven't mentioned DBG in this thread or Thomas. I specifically mentioned the defense because of the fact that App, for the first time that I know of, is replacing four guys who are, for the time being, on NFL rosters. Each starter lost is now at the top level of football. That is a story worth following. Hell, even marketing the fact that you have 7 guys returning on defense, with the 4 lost being in a NFL training camp, would be something that could help out with recruiting.
If you want to have a real discussion, perhaps justify the lack of information from the program and the positive effect that will have on recruiting, ticket sales, Yosef Club donations and the like? That would be one road you could take.
TLDR; you made no point here. Haven't mentioned DBG or Thomas. Only the defense replacing four guys who are now in the NFL. Big deal. Market it. Package it. Sell it. Recruit on it.
