If you were a projected first rounder you would come back? What if you tear your acl? You came back just so supacane wasn’t mad at the head coach and now you lost millions.I don't agree, Roche and the Kicker i understand, because of their age and being 5th year grads. The rest are some of our best players and I don't see what they had to lose by coming back especially Brevin and a lesser extent Phillips. I am not even sure whats their projections.
Its good to see people coming back but when our best players start coming back then I will consider that fixed.
Because then they can’t use there corny a$$ catch phrases like , “Fish rots from the head down, bro!” or “Cut the head off the snake first bro!”...God forbid the kids actually like Manny and are buying into what he is trying to build.Kids like him. I don’t get why everyone thinks he’s hated
Projecting much? You are the one who took a positive thread to feed your “believe in Diaz” agenda by using the players against those who don’t believe in him. This thread was going just fine until you chimed in.
Lol at Coker being the right hire.
Every single player in the country has the chance of getting injured. When Bama and Clemson and Ohio St players come back...they face the same risk and they are performing better than our guys at the moment.If you were a projected first rounder you would come back?

What L? U man have been hyping offseason platitudes for decades, and at one point I was one of them. Until u realize none of it means squat on game day. When our best players, that have had average production, start coming back, like Hankerson, Dorsett and Chad...instead of leaving like Kaaya, and Streeter etc. Then I will consider it changed and fixed. Punto. Thats how u build and get from average to winning a conference title, when players can recognize they still can get better. U man only talking bout injuries.Dude take your L and move on.
What's all the hoopla about? Same players and Baker coming back= Same results as last year. Got to bring in fresh blood, both in players and coaches.Players coming back for their final season. That says to me that, regardless of what some fans may say about Manny, players are buying into what he's selling. In the last few years, players like Lou Hedley, Jon Ford, Nesta Silvera, Bubba Bolden, and Mike Harley would have gone to the pros even without a high draft grade. Now they're coming back and it helps the team tremendously going into next year.
The players that did choose to leave (Brevin, Roche, Phillips, Borregales) all made a good decision IMO. Jury is still out on Manny as a regular season coach, but there's little denying that he's massively improved the squad over the last two offseasons. And I think that will help on the field.
I think we're giving way too much credit to Manny for this. The credit should be split with Manny, King and Lashlee. This is the first time in a long time where these kids have something to come back for. We have a QB that can win and an offense that isn't inept and putting the defense in bad situations. How many would come back if King wasn't here or left? I mean Kaaya, Rosier, Perry and williams wouldn't make me think we're winning anything. Before that it was Morris, Harris, Marve, Freeman and Crudup. Sure Manny got King and Lashlee here but I don't think it's a huge culture change. This also could be a one year blip. I think King brought some much needed leadership to the team and that has more to do with it.
You don’t see the irony in posting this in a thread literally talking about a kid coming back to improve his draft stock?
Phillips and Brevin made right call. Period. The end. You might not like it, but you’re wrong. And for the record, my selfish ass wanted them to stay too. Of course. But if they were my kids, you’d have been able to hear their tires screeching out of the gables from Pompano. They made the right call. Stop mentioning them. And so far, every other kid has too. That NEVER happens here. So keep it real.
