Door isn't closed yet. Could mean someone currently on the team could be looking around but not yet announced.

Yea it has been deleted, looks like RD pressed "publish" too soon? I hate that this could mean we lose Joe, but what a replacement this would be if that happens.

Losing Joe and Jones would be too much to keep my optimism at an optimal level. 42% from the field doesnít wow me and I doubt that number improves with a serious step up in competition.

Interesting.  He had announced a couple months ago that he was staying put at Bowling Green.

If i remember correctly, it was the depth that scared him off from arkansas (the unknown of Joe and Jones). If the rumors are true, then I would presume Joe is gone

Things are coming together. I see it like this: Isaiah Joe crushed his interviews and will probably be drafted in the first round.  Muss said, hey joes not coming back, turner commits.  RD got the timing off.

Assuming this is legit

What a wild ride this roster turnover has been.  Somebody tells you three months ago we're gonna lose Joe and Jones, your initial reaction is "There goes next year, classic Arkansas."  Yet, here we are...with a roster capable of accomplishing more than we've seen in 25 years.

Far cry from the offseason when we lost Portis, Qualls, and Williams.  We just shrugged and said, "Welp, what can you do?"  Turns out, a lot.  Excuses are just that.

It might not mean much but the article was up for a good long while earlier this morning. I doubt Richard would post anything he hadn't 100% confirmed. He is very careful about that.

Is it possible Richard Davenport posted an article he had prepped a couple months back? A quick search shows Justin Turner doing BGSU interviews in the past couple days. This doesn't seem a real possibility.

Also, a scoop this big would probably come through Kevin McPherson. Other reporters have posted rumors first, but it is pretty easy to realize McPherson is first with big news like this once it is official.

The end of the article said something like "should Mason Jones decide to remain in the draft".

Seems like it was put together a few months ago in case Turner picked us and somehow accidentally got posted today.

Could be.  Would be a really weird screw up.  Not sure if he saves articles he doesn't publish or not.

Yea, the article seemed a little strange, like it was from a few months ago.

It's interesting to me that nobody in-the-know has come out and said this isn't true, though

Yep, I've been surfing other boards to find a mention of the article.  Nothing.

Huh.

Sounds like it was a pre-prepped story from back before Turner decided to return to BGSU and Jones decided to close the door on returning to Arkansas, thus the delete.

Never the less at one time he committed to come here. That's a good thing.

No. Writers will write-up the body of a story, in this case, likely giving background on the player and the Hogs' roster situation, and then add in quotes as soon as they get them. I didn't see the story, but I bet it lacked quotes from Turner on actually committing.

This. Itís why youíll see a story 5 seconds after a commitment happens, gotta have it written just in case.

That is definitely a generic, ready to go article. Bet someone at Whole Hog was deleting drafts and hit wrong button.
