With good coaching, strength training and attention to detail can overcome some things but better talent usually wins out.

Player development and strength training has always been an issue back to the McCarney years. Look at the team out east; they recruit 2 and 3 star farm boys and develop them into 1st round NFL draft choices. I'm hoping the new strength/conditioning coach Dave Andrews can get us to the level we need to be.

Finally saw it on my Draft Kings App at -1 last night. Looked this morning and saw it had jumped back to -2.5. Must be some confidence in the fan base still.

Did I miss an announcement?
Campbell would never say that because he is not required to report injuries like the NFL. Maybe someday as sports betting becomes more powerful. More just a feeling they won't play. No insider information here. I could very easily find out due to a family connection to the Downing's. But friends > breaking news on CF

HIPAA says no.

The change would be if student-athletes are dumb enough to get themselves “paid” (and thus become employees) rather than being “compensated”.
