Returning Seniors

Post by tjtlja »

Any news who may be coming back? I have heard Huderson and Dublin were considering it. Is that correct?

I think Dublin will go the consultant route and get analyzed without hiring an agent. He missed a game or two because of protocols so he may want to come back to get a full season in assuming he’d get to have family and friends watching. If he’s told he will get drafted he would likely leave but I think he knows he would benefit from another year of film.

I think there's a good chance Dublin comes back. Kuerschen isn't. No idea on others.

If our incoming FR kicker can't beat him out then he's a bust.

Glover will keep his kick off job. He has been very good there. I assume FG kicking will be an open competition. No predictions but I'd be surprised if Glover is not doing that too.

Glover had his ups and downs but he was solid as a junior and improved hugely while he was here. If he's back, I'd ease Esnard into the position, possibly playing him within the confines of the redshirt rule.

guess things could change but on a pre Bowl interview with Coach Fritz he said indications were Dublin, Huderson, Moody, Glover, Kevin Henry and Jaylon Monroe are among guys seriously thinking of returning for another year.

Yes, I listened to that same Wavecast. Hoping the players don't change their minds.

Not at all surprised that Ben is not coming back. He used his time at Tulane to earn two Masters degrees and is ready to move on. I can wish him good luck trying pro ball and also say I don't think he has much of a shot. But this is the time to go for it! Good luck, Ben!

Quite a few 2020 seniors have made announcements or given indications that they're returning for 2021. Two recent ones are D'Eriq King and Memphis' very good slot TE Sean Dykes.

Only if Hampton teaches him to turn his head when the ball is thrown. Just once. That's all I ask.

Isn’t that the truth. He’d have a couple INTs and less PIs.

I was absolutely shocked at how relatively few PIs he did get in light of this.

Sure, that'd be nice, but regardless he's our best cover guy.

I'm for him returning but that's not saying much. The real worry is how do we expect that Hampton will teach him that vital skill now when he never bothered to do so when he was here before.

That’s a skill that I’ve always felt wasn’t taught. It’s one of those “nose for the ball” type of skills that players either have or they don’t.

The freshman Dyson was better at looking for the ball in coverage.

As expected, Cam Sample announced today that he is forgoing the extra year and declaring for the draft.

King tore his ACL in Miami's bowl game. Just think, if his rehab does not go as smoothly as hoped maybe he'll sit out next year and petition for.. what, like his 8th year?
