12 Juco players so far

Last year we only recruited 2 Juco Players out of 24 recruited!

Seems like we want an immediate impact

This leads me to believe that CLB wants a strong exit.

Did the same thing after 2011? What immediate impact? Just because they are juco doesn't mean they will start or be better than what we have.

If they knew that before they got kids into Trojan gear, would we really be having this conversation?

Really. We are signing the same kids this year as 2011? Different coaches. Different players. Different set of circumstances. You can't say the outcome will be the same. Played golf on the number one hole at our local course 100's of times. Every time is different. It is all based off of circumstances.

coach Snyder of Kansas State has made a living with JUCO guys BUT he is in the middle of a strong JUCO conference with contacts everywhere.....OUR advantage is we are in the middle of WHERE these kids come from and grew up and are familiar with the South.......So why it maybe said that CLB wants an exit with immediate impact he wants to win now.....programs need and identity and our luster has faded some over the past 3 years and polishing it with some JUCO guys is not all bad.

IT will be a challenge and very interesting to see how these JuCo's perform against D-I competition. Nothing's a given!!

Hoping for the best! GO TROJANS!!
