Post Re: Thurman Morbley off team
Actually, there have been guys commit since August (3 or 4). I have seen them on Twitter. I just haven't posted any of them. No, I didn't check whether it is for this class or the next but more likely this one. (24/7 is behind. They always are because we don't have a rep)

The coaches have been out on the recruiting trail during the bye week.

Saul I don't think it's that these folks want to keep someone on the team who can't folow rules I think it's more that Withers is getting ready to be finished with his 2nd season so this is way too late for house cleaning to still be going on

so from now on, players can do whatever they want and stay on the team, because it's too late to kick them off. got it.

Yes Saul! You didn't get the memo? Did you get your TPS report??? Ha! That is some funny stuff right there. There is a deadline to drop players and Withers didn't follow it!

Why has there not been an official announcement regarding Morbley? Sucks to lose him if true, he was one of the players I was most excited about going forward.

I'm not getting too upset about anything right now because the guy that started the post has only posted 13 times so I have no clue on who they are or how reliable they are.

I'm not gonna get upset because... well, what good will that do?

Withers isn't going anywhere after this season short of him getting caught (on film) banging Trauth in the square during finals.

I'll start getting upset next season if we don't show some marked improvement.

@TheRev I have asked them both this question before. They're are both players who got recruited by Fran but the DT played his last year with Withers and they moved him to Oline (he hated that). They have both said to me Withers is overall a better coach. He is said to be more involved, they say Fran talked through his position coaches and lived in his office. The CB in my class has now played two years under Withers and he is losing faith. He knows he is a better coach but says their is frustration in the locker room, especially with older guys. He even told me is not sure he will play next year despite having one year of eligibility left.



Losing faith in what? Play calling? Personnel decisions? Recruiting?

When I was there in the mid 90's I met a few players who had played under Fran. One was Mike Miller. Big RB and a great student. Anyway, he said that the players loved playing for Fran. Our team was successful under Fran Part I. Even though we all know the odyssey he had been through after he left SWT I think the administration thought that the coaching skills were there and he might have been right again for our program at that time. I think his ineptness is overblown. I guess he accidentally had at least one bowl eligible season, just like HS coach Brad Wright accidentally and in spite of everything made the playoffs that one year. So far the current regime has been even more inept than Heldusier. That's pretty bad.

barely over .500 and not being in contention for the conference isn't really successful. a more accurate depiction of those 2 years would be "didn't totally suck".

Fran Part I - Coaching full-time to get a better gig

Fran Part II - Coaching part-time to pay for country club membership

Big difference.

dude still has "WR @ Texas State U." and a pic of him in the all "gold" unis from a couple of weeks back on his twitter profile, and he was active as of 10/22 (his bday, apparently), so maybe he isn't really off the team.
