    No. They (unlike you) understand that football is a game of ups and downs, and every team not named Alabama has ****** years.

    It's a fair question I think? Maybe people like me don't remember the 1-11 Alabama teams all that well.

    If anyone transfers so be it. It just shows they aren't mentally tough imo.

    So all the incoming transfers we've has in FB and notably MBB have been mentally weak?

    No but if they just up and leave because they were on a bad team they are. Most players transfer because they aren't happy with the type of system they are in. I can understand that. But if they transfer because of the lone reason of losing then yes.

    Re: Attrition

    so if we go 1-11 this year we'll win 3 NC in 4 years?

    Re: Attrition

    No, primarily because of redshirting. They'd lose a year of eligibility to transfer now.

    Re: Attrition

    Why worry about it I can't change it and players dont transfer from football programs very often.

    Re: Attrition

    If Iowa State has a down year (less than 4 wins) would that change your decision to be a Cyclone?
    No

    No means no.

    Not until now. Because you know the C.F. message boards have a profound influence on the lives of today's high school and college athletes. Way to go.
