    RE: Vonleh and TJD Discussion This is where I don't understand some peoples perception of what we should be or shouldn't be recruiting. Most everyone is saying TJD will be here multiple years and is not a OAD candidate but if TJD produces like many of you suggest or hope that he produces, I don't see him being here past 1 year. BUT, If he doesn't produce the way people are expecting or the way this team needs, then he will be labeled as a bust or a disappointment. This goes into my question a few months back, is our perceptions or expectations of recruiting flawed from the start. How can we conceivably suggest that we ONLY recruit 4 and 5 * players who theoretically are your 10, 11, 12, 13 players (if you have been doing this for multiple years, if there were no transfers, no early leaves) as freshmen. We don't expect players 10, 11, 12, 13 to be major impacts in general. However, if those 4* & 5* players don't make an impact in their 1st year, they are labeled as busts or transfer candidates. Not to mention how the player feels about the situation and become transfers. However, if we recruit lower rated players that may fit better or take more time to develop but better chance at staying with the program, the fan base complains that coach can't recruit. Also, if our top players are leaving early due to Transfers or Professional Careers, then how do we ever become an experienced group with players who are upperclassmen. There seems to be a major no win situation for high star recruits and coaches recruiting to our fan base. It is extremely difficult to have it both ways unless you have a history of being a GREAT coach and winning at a high level (AKA DUKE) or are doing something illegal (or both).

    I realize this should be obvious, but I haven't heard anything about any of our players withdrawing from the draft? Langford - Staying Green - ? Smith - ? Durham - ?
