    Re: DeMarcus and Melvin

    I just would not worry about next year. But Im with you. Id love to see those guys as Cyclones.

    Whatever happens/happens.

    Our new coach can start recruiting and making his own program with whatever players he chooses.

    Re: DeMarcus and Melvin

    Knowing Greg he will encourage them to stay...They will still have a better shot to play and have an impact here.

    Re: DeMarcus and Melvin

    DeMarcus probably stays...

    Ejim is gone, IMO

    Re: DeMarcus and Melvin

    Don't know. It is late enough that if handled correctly they could be kept. It all depends on how this shakes out and who our new coach is. Way to early to make a solid prediction. With the length of time Ejim has been committed and everything that has happened since he has, I would think he would be pretty close with all of the staff, even the ones still here. It just depends. Time will tell.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: DeMarcus and Melvin

    This is just crazy. Why would there be 2 recruits supposedly sign if Greg was gonna leave? Unless they knew he was leaving and signed? im so confused! what a crazy day!

    There's a slight chance they might have known it was a possibility that the coach would leave ... as I posted on another thread, Oregon job was open for a while, and if Altman was on the list and it got to that, and GM and JP knew CU was interested, long before anything was set in motion ... then maybe some recruits liked the Nurse/Grayer hires (which also might have happened because of the above possibility).

    Just a guess.

    If they leave though then we will be in even more trouble for next year even with a better coach unless he brings in some late guys

    Re: DeMarcus and Melvin

    Has Colvin signed a letter with anyone yet? Maybe he would come back rather than sitting out a year!

    Good call, its worth a shot. I really hope Melvin and Demarcus decide to still come, especially Melvin he seems like a great kid.
