  • I am wondering about walk-ons and if they receive the same benefits as scholarship players (obviously not tuition, books etc) in terms of training support, injury recovery, nutrition and things like that.

    • That’s right! You mentioned that on Twitter. I’ll get to it tomorrow for sure!

  • Hey, Henry. Just wanted to touch on Pac12 commish, Larry Scott acting like he’s so bent about SB 206 and player’s being paid for their NIL. You said that he acted like it was a waste of his time to discuss the matter and also that he would like to see a situation where payment is tied to academics. When you hear that, you have to question if the guy is gonna float off into space, with that inflated ego. Neither he nor the NCAA have any grounds for shutting this down. The NCAA is a joke, with zero actual authority. It’s time they go the way of the Dodo bird anyhow.

    Instead of Scott trying to figure out best to strengthen the conference and prevent regional talent from leaving, he wants to play demigod to a situation that he has no power to stop. It’s no wonder the Pac12 is in such a bad shape. And that’s the university president’s fault, for bringing in a person with zero knowledge of college sports.

  • Hammerin’ Henry –

    You are off to a fast start. Setting up to start right before the PAC-12 media days was a smart move by BSN.

    A couple of quick comments on the pod content:

    (1) Watch out for Mark Perry as a Freshman that may make an impact. We need safety help and he may have been one of the most highly recruited players last year. He also ended up having a great Spring track season with some very strong numbers. Check him out in the minimal free time you may have.
    (2) I would love to see a more in depth examination of the offensive line. Coach Kap seems like he may be one of the key additions (and addition by subtraction of the old OLine coach). Additionally, there seems to be more talent than just Will Sherman on the line this year. I would love to hear more after you study and research a bit more in this space.
    (3) Your callout of Jalen Sami as a potential high impact (Redshirt) Freshman was spot on. Jalen’s story and late recruitment would be a great topic to dig into if you can. If he fulfills the promise that seems to have come out of Spring practice he could be the story of the season.

    Now the question – other than Head Coach, which coaching position do you think represents the biggest upgrade in coaching and recruiting over the predecessor from the MacIntrye staff?

    Thanks and keep the pods coming.
