We got our 3rd new WR for Spring Ball.  This is good because it should hopefully allow Sinegal and Redix to Red Shirt next season as planned.  Last year, we also had to pull the Red Shirt off of Banner, Batson, and Walker, so maybe one or two of those guys can also Red Shirt this upcoming season also.

We picked up 2 more D-Linemen.  Personally, I am really excited about Dixson.  PAC 12 teams have been nibbling around him for a while now and I hope that these schools don't lose one of their Commits late, thus allowing them to make a late run at him.  Here is the MinerRush article:

There was a big group in town this weekend and I am thrilled about the chance of us maybe getting John Clark as well.  The guys is a 6'5" Monster, who apparently has no other Offers at this time.  Hunter Thedford decommitted from UTEP a few weeks ago and I read an article this week saying that he will be playing DE at SMU.  No disrespect to Tedford, but I honestly think that when looking at a DE, that we will be upgrading if we can get Clark instead of Tedford, not to mention that Clark is already 30 pounds bigger.  Here is his video, check out what he does at the 1:26 mark:

If we can get Clark to Commit, then I really like the 4 Freshman D-Linemen that we will be bringing in(2 DE's and 2 DT's).  All listed at 6'4" or taller, all athleitic, and with weights of: 290, 270, 255, 235.  What a great future core, this group could end up being.  I do feel that where we need the most is help is at CB and that looks to be the weakness(most unproven) part of our Defense next year.  I am somewhat surprised that we haven't gone after more CB's, but apparently we did get 1 High School visit this week in Kalon Beverly.  Will Mathews(RB) vistsed Kent State and has not committed yet, which I hope is a good sign, because I would really love to sign him and he is supposed to be visiting UTEP next weekend.

This is the time of year when every school is happy about their Commits and Recruiting Classes.  Everybody has their Rose Colored Glasses on, but I can honestly say that if things continue to come together over the next 10 days as we hope, that we will have the potential to get a Class that we can feel really good about.  Kugler has had a big overall plan since day one, and if we can follow-up these Official Visits with Commits, then we will realy see further evidence of his plan coming together.  Kugler got almost all of his Visits last year to Commit, let's hope that he hits that same high percentage again this year.

An English sea-captain being asked if he had read "The Exile of Erin," replied: "No, sir, but I should like to anchor on it." Years afterwards, when he had been hanged as a pirate after a career of unparalleled atrocities, the following memorandum was found in the ship's log that he had kept at the time of his reply:
  Aug. 3d, 1842. Made a joke on the ex-ile of Erin. Coldly received. War with the whole world!

Here Mr. Do Do defines common sense as sense common to himself, like snakes talk and God created the universe in six days with Mr. Do Do in mind--part of His Divine Plan, doncher see?

Um, it's about that avatar, Min--is it meant to suggest you're a patriot (Onward Christian soldiers!) and a drooling God-smacked mouth-breather, or are you merely running for congress as a tea-bagger?

If it's the later, you might get a nice campaign donation from Mojo's Dog Do Do Clean up Service. If you're wise you'll take stock options--he's small now, true, but I am willing to predict that in a year's time there'll be a Mojo's in every town in America! Mojo himself will be proclaimed regent around the Globe as Mr. Do Do!
