Resume seems strong minus his latest sting at Kansas. There is no school out there which screams "Just wait until Basketball Season rolls around!" like the Jayhawks.

It appears to me, Robert, that Drink is putting together a damn good staff with experience like we have never had before. I really think this is a top 25 team for sure. Just hope we can keep "ALL" the kids and none will transfer. Go Apps!!

Does transferring not cost a year of eligibility? Satt's staff was great and took us to new heights, but if an athlete wants to follow a coach then his allegiance was not to our University. Good luck to them, but dont let the door hit you on the way to a rebuilding program that is years behind our program in that respect. Do they transfer to increase their draft stock since it is a P5 program? A standout on a winning team has to be more easily noticed by NFL scouts than a standout on a losing team regardless of P5 or G5. A point to ponder...

My understanding is that transfers have to sit out a year and would actually lose a year of eligibility if they had previously red-shirted a year...so not very smart. I believe they can transfer to an FCS school without sitting out a year though but why trade in the possibilities of this current team for a watered-down FCS landscape?

Totally agree. I think if they transfer it is for reasons like Hicks'. The RB stable is so deep and talented his abilities simply wouldn't allow playing reps. He wants to be on the field. His decision to transfer was best for his goals.

Yep, HIcks is a good back but we're so deep with strong backs, don't blame him at all.

Yeah, Hicks would have left whether Satt was here or not. With the emergence on Peoples and Harrington looking healthy again....Marcus WJr and Evans already have their roles locked down. Hicks was the odd man out.


Out here with the moves like I invented smooth

I think our big brother in Chapel Hill screams this same mantra as well

I agree it would be stupid to transfer. I didn't mean leave App for follow Satt, just leave because they liked one of the coaches that left. It usually happens, just hope they all stay. I think they will really love the staff Drink has.

Ryan Finley left Boise St when Coach Drink went to State from Boise St
