Interesting Off Season

It's going to be interesting to see what happens this Off Season.  

1) Players.  Who enters the Portal or just leaves Football?  I have a feeling we'll have a lot of turnover again.  I hope we can keep most of our Freshman, I think we have some gems in that class.  Can the Coaches develop the young players if we keep them?
2) Coaching staff.  Who stays?  Who goes?  Who is asked to go?  Who joins?  Do we have an OC next year?
3) Alumni/Boosters.  Can the new AD finally get some $$?  We'll never compete with the current budget.  Might have been able to 10-15 years ago, but it's a different game now.  The kids, and coaches, need the toys.  
4) Recruits.  How does Coach Hen continue to sell the current program?  I think he did pretty good last year, especially considering the very late start.  If we can keep the Freshman from last year, can we stack another good class on top of them?  Early signing is Dec 21-23.

I'm with you in hoping we keep a lot of the younger players - there are some really bright spots there. Other than that, I don't know who of the upperclassmen would have 1 or 2 more seasons left (covid really messed a lot of that up) so I can't even begin to guess who of them we might retain. Rebuilding isn't done in a day, so I have to remember to be patient. As for the coaches, who knows? I'm not close enough to the program to know who's liable to stay or go.

All I can say is "onward and upward".

Normally I'd be worried about the assistant coaches leaving, but when you can't win a game, that's not really a concern

Is twitter the only way you can find out who's hitting the portal?

Maybe they are following twitter as well, but a couple of the other boards have a topic devoted to this, so I thought maybe there was some place it was listed. I did see the SD QB is hitting the portal.

Cam Lewis the 1st of most likely many to come, 3 seasons in and 2 different coaching staff's and never made the field? I know his position was recruited hard last year with great success. Brantley and Armstrong to name a few makes it tough to see playing time. Best of luck to the young man.
