    If CPR took a chance on some transfers like Dorian Green Beckham from Missouri? Would you be for it or do you think there are to many guys on a football team to keep track of bringing in some second chance type guys with major talent?

    Green Beckham, no. The nature of his offenses are such that he should not be welcome on our teams. Football equivalents of Royce White and DeAndre Kane? Sure. Just make sure you've got the support/monitoring in place to help/make them succeed/toe the line.

    Him probably not but I would not be opposed to it depending on the circumstances.

    It sounds weird, but I would hope CPR would run each of them past Fred first and ask his opinion.

    If this hypothetical person played defensive tackle I'd be all for it.

    There are so many reasons why football is so much different in terms of transfers.

    Too high of a risk? What do we have to lose? But the question is irrelevant because he would never consider coming here in a million years.

    With how bad our football program predominately is, I would take every single talented player I could get. If they can learn from their mistakes at their previous school and be good while on our campus I could care less what their past looks like.

    We've had some very recent problems with keeping our own guys in line. Not sure I have the confidence that we can corral someone with an already checkered past like Fred has been able to do....
