    Doesn't sound like you know anything about either kid. Both are PWOs and both are on academic scholarships. Not sure what you are insinuating but I would expect both to graduate with EKU degrees.

    Very immature to come on here and talk bad about two great kids you know nothing about.

    Your five posts don't deserve a response but since my boy jumped in I'll answer.

    Check your history. How many SK football players go away somewhere and stick? About half? Sounds right. I went with the under. And, BTW, not considering TMC in this discussion. In some cases, it's a shorter drive to campus than to SK.

    Hansel stuck. Baldwin stuck. Kuntz didn't go. The RB came home from MI. The lineman made it a semester or so at EKU. Thank goodness for GVSU. Looks like Racke is going to go, we'll see if he stays. Big brother transferred from Dayton to TMC and left the program.

    I was at EKU in the late 70's and early 80's when making a National Championship run was an annual ritual in Richmond. At that time they had recruiting pipelines in Cincinnati and Florida and that's where the majority of their talent came from. It really wasn't with in-state kids. Great to see those opportunities for the KY boys, but history (both older and more recent) suggests that in-state talent just won't be enough.

    You are correct sir. Majority of Eastern's great teams were stacked with out of state talent, but with the influx in football programs, and how recruiting is these days, you have to get talent or make your talent from what you can get. Under Hope and Hood the program had a lot of success with Ohio and Kentucky boys. Hopefully this year goes better than last. Worst record in what 54 years, and the 2017 schedule doesn't look any easier.

    We spent a day at Spring practice a few weeks ago. Numbers were a bit thin due to injury and illness. Defense definitely looked ahead of the offense but there are some nice pieces on both sides of the ball. I believe there will be opportunity for some of the incoming freshman to make a mark this year as special teams or role players.

    I'm hoping for a huge improvement in Mark Elder's second year. I'm curious to see if incoming freshman Ray Horton for Belfry can make a contribution this season. He is a freak of nature.

    I would say he probably starts.
