    If he is really coming into town this weekend I can’t imagine he is going anywhere. If he flipped that would be shocking and devastating.

    Would hate to lose Filsaime. But doesn’t it seem like we lose a high one last minute every year?
    This scenario would be far from a disaster.

    Ouch, hope your estimate is low, but given current circumstances it does not seem unreasonable either.

    Just have to hope Napier has some rabbits to pull out of a magicians top hat.

    7 - 1/2 long days to go.

    Needs to get going in portal.
    1-2 Ol
    2 WR at least. Pearsall, Douglas, Bowman have to be replaced by experienced players. Cannot count on Freshman and RS Freshman.

    Just got an O line commit in Preferred Walk on:

    More specifically, need OT's. I think we have OG's to compete.
    Also need SEC capable LB's to supplement James.
