Ugh.  Gilbert, Watkins and Jones are most surprising/disappointing.

There were plenty here that were raving about Hugs when we got his commitment. Too bad about Hammon.

Re: Players No Longer on 2014 Roster 


Gilbert and Hugs seem like true surprises.. although for some reason I feel I read about Hugs having issues or maybe I'm confusing him with someone else? Was it previously suggested he might leave? Gilbert is just.. a surprise. He's been with the program for a while. Maybe doesn't fit the mold of what the staff is looking for? Troubling since he has lots of experience on that DLine where we are quite raw..

I think I remember reading about Hammon and his injuries, but again could be confusing him..

Obviously Watkins and Jones are a true concern.. like a WTF concern. This is not the type of attrition you look for. You just can't lose players like these. Hope they get it straightened out and end up Badgers.

Hugs doesn't surprise me a bit.  He has never progressed up the depth chart.  Gilbert and the freshmen are a concern to me.

Yeah, Hugs was a promising recruit but I don't remember hearing anything about him in practice reports.  I thought Gilbert was a true DT that would be the backup to Herring. There is an even bigger need for the true frosh from GA Jeremy Patterson to contribute now.

Both BB and GA had been asked about Hugs and both talked about what a great kid he was, but avoided talking about his play. That's usually a sign.

GA was talking about sliding Herring over to DE at times.  I hope Goldberg is not too big of a dropoff now that he has to move up the depth chart.  Some of the freshmen DL are probably going to see some snaps.

How does someone who was supposed to go to Northwestern have academic issues??? Can't catch a break here.

Watkins life went on a downward spiral and left the program and city of Madison.

Watkins has some family issues and is not currently on campus. The issue is not academics. Kids don't have to be there until the start of fall camp.

Actually someone had posted on another Badger site a letter from Watkins dad/guardian that said he (Watkins) has cut off all communication with his family and the Badger coaches. It also said that Watkins has "taken a downward spiral" and will not be apart of the Badger football team.

That is what the quote said, not what I'm saying. It seemed legit, but I guess we'll see.

He had already been on campus and left. The coaches tried to keep him but it didn't work. Major family issues going on. I wish their family the best and hope they can get things patched up again.

Sad to hear about Watkins. It seems like talent keeps finding ways to drain from this class. Hopefully he can get everything worked out with his personal life and then re-join the program.

Well that's truly unfortunate. I feel bad for Watkins and his family and the Badger coaches. I'm thinking they tried everything they could to provide a family like environment for the young man but apparently whatever they could do for him wasn't enough. Troubling because it really seems like the coaches strive on generating a tight-knit group where everyone feels like part of a brotherhood. Damn shame.

that was the point to my post.  i guess eric doesn't know everything afterall.  what a db.
I don't know everything, but I know it's not as hopeless as some here think.
not the point eric.  your post to me was as if i had no clue what i was talking about.  I actually did.  if he comes back, that is great.  right now, it doesn't look good, per his father/guardian.  that is all i said and you screamed like a little bitch.  Don't assume everyone on this board knows nothing.  some actually do and hear things also.

This one is a head scratcher. Jones had offers from a variety of good academic schools... Wake Forest, BC, Temple, etc.

OK... I'll just be blunt. I tried to downplay it by putting a generic "academics" and (perhaps foolishly) hoped that it just stayed at that. You chose to ring the fire alarm. I try not to do that because these are just kids and we don't know everything... but whatever.

Your info is accurate. Now we all know... yay?

ETRs problem has always been that he wants everyone to think he's connected and in the know on everything. He's not.

except your response was no where close to what you just said.  You said, "what i said was total nonsense", yet now you are saying you were protecting the kid.  seriously?  his dad told a mod exactly what the situation is.  he doesn't need protecting we are all pulling for him.  you can stop your back peddalling anytime.

Had high hopes for him.  He really stood out as someone who could help the WR corps as a freshman.

Well aren't you grandiose?  Do us all a favor and if you don't want to put out what you know then don't say anything...spreading misinformation is about the lowest thing you could do.  Get a grip dude.

I wonder where Gilbert lands?  Illinois State with Jeff Lewis? Spack has developed a penchant for attracting Big Ten transfers, mostly of the undergraduate variety. 

I also see walk on Ryan Connelly from Eden Prairie is listed as an OLB.
