Numbers question---AGAIN!
« on: February 07, 2018, 08:44:14 pm »

I am so screwed up on the numbers available for the 2018 season. I thought that with Rogers and Heinrich we had as many as 3 slots open after the early signing period. Yet reading this article has me really confused:

http://www.wholehogsports.com/news/2018/feb/07/state-hogs-chavis-caldwell-glad-be-re-united/


"With 16 on the books, Morris said the Hogs could still add six more. There are 22 slots open after crossing off the three - Ty Clary, Hayden Henry and Gary Cross - that were signed last year as “blue shirts.” However, he said they would only sign perfect fits and that might only be another two or three."

What does that statement mean? Are those 3 kids still on the roster? Do they have scholarships?

He will make room. Not everyone on the roster right now will be here by fall camp. Transfers are coming

I'm asking about those 3 in particular because the comment expressly said "crossed off".

He's saying 22 available in this class after those 3 get scollys. You may sign 25 each year. Of course, that's just a message to go to work or leave if you don't want to be here. We don't have room for 25.

I read that as “buy in” or we’ll find someone who wants that scholarship.  But yes, the three blue shirts leave us 22 slots and 16 have signed.  So, 6 left under the 25 but unless transfers come, there aren’t really 6 slots available when we hit fall camp.

You forgot to carry the 1 and you forgot the transitive property.  Then PERMDAS to get the variable needed for the basic f(x). Once you have that it's simply a matter of using the quadratic equation.



Now, I'm sure some math smarty pants will come along and correct my verbiage and/or presentation, but it's been years since I passed my College Algebra CLEP exam, so I'm a little rusty.

Just know that CCM is a math major.  Following recruiting has gotten a little harder.

Ok, so as of right now we are 3 over the 85 and that is counting Rogers and Heinrich, correct?
Morris is saying possibly 1 or 2 more by Friday which means possibly 5 over the 85 limit.

I have seen mention of at least 1 or 2 grad transfer O'Linemen that Morris is looking at which could us up to 7 over. That is a LOT of kids coming out of the system, so much for "4 year guaranteed scholarships"!!!

I know what you mean.  It is tough to figure out because it is so fluid and because coaches make decisions all the time to change the numbers so they can sign who can help the team.  Numbers will change again after spring practice and some kids will be asked to transfer.  I just sit back and let the coaches do what they need to do to help us win.   I hate as much as anyone that coaches have to ask kids to vacate a scholarship but it is usually best for the kid because they find a place for him to land where he can contribute and that is the just the way it is done to compete in the SEC.

It's simple, we're at 90 players either on scholarship, or scheduled to be by summer school/fall camp. We still need 5 guys to leave this spring.

You remember that uncle you had when you were a kid that thought he knew everything about everything and you thought he was the smartest, coolest and funnest guy ever?  But then you grew up and realized he was a complete idiot that knew nothing about anything?  I'm that uncle.

We need five players to participate in the Brey Cook school of tweeting and we have no issues.

Can a kid that is on scholarship voluntarily give up a scholarship and become a walk-on player for the same team he previously had a scholarship for?
