    Graham was the real headscratcher when it happened and turned out to be as painful as a loss as I anticipated back then particularly because of where he ended up. That was vintage Bradford "doing work"....what a frickin disaster he was. I also thought losing Hayes was going to be a big loss, and while he turned out to be serviceable, probably underperformed relative to his potential. Interesting about Lynch turning into a star, don't remember much about him.

    Wow...overwhelming majority of our decommits since 2016 have been complete and utter failures. Looks like the two who could have contributed are Graham and Lynch (DT at Baylor). Other than that, we dodged a lot of bullets. I'll give kudos where they are due - I am sure the guys we signed instead of these players have turned out better for us. Of course I am leaving out the 2021 class...and some from the 2019 class whom have yet to make a significant impact - jury is still out on them.

    It just looks like college recruiting in general. We missed out on some good talent but also dodged some bullets.

    I remember frequently the scuttlebutt being was that we had encouraged a lot of those folks to go elsewhere because of one thing or another. Lately when it happens it seems it is just seen as proof that Helton sucks.

    Can you do a similar summary for portal transfers?
