So, we've lost coach Howle now also, going back to Penn State.
Sucks to lose him, but at least we are losing these coaches for FBS schools or the pros. Except for Anthony, that one I still don't understand.

DB J.T. Wahee is transferring to Ball State for his final year of eligibility.
J.T. spent 3 years at Norfolk State before transferring to Western to join his brother George. He did not play for us this year (can't remember if that was due to transfer rules or injury).

That one hurts, he is a great LB and surprised he is moving on tbh.

I was a fan, but he's a tweener at LB/S and was splitting time with Powe. Hoping it just the fact we've upgraded at the position and he felt his playing time would decrease. He'll do well somewhere else and wish him the best.
Think Purple...lets think Gold as in Championships!!!

Technically not 2020 yet, but I figured I'd start posting any changes to the roster going into next year that I come across.
First up:

LB Tre Hendon is going to do a grad transfer. Hendon redshirted in 2016, played in 12 games in 2017 with 16 tackles, played in 6 games in 2018 with 4 tackles, and played in 8 games with 5 tackles this last year.
Tre Hendon is going to be playing at DII Lindenwood.

I haven't heard anything about his brother Cam, but for the curious, Kahlil Overton is going to be at Tyler Junior College next season. Tyler, TX is about 90 miles southeast of Dallas (where the brothers are from).

O-Lineman Michael Ross is transferring. He redshirted in 2017, played in 11 games in 2018, then 2 games in 2019. I don't remember if that was due to injury or what though.

Wow, 2 years left. He has more to give than he gave. I am not a big fan of redshirting kids unless they have NFL potential.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));
