    Then my next guess would be 2nd Team All GMAC RS Junior Matt Guevremont from the now defunct Malone University football squad. IF HE'S NOT the guy then I will just wait until the fall.

    Big OT. That's a good guess even if it doesn't pan out.

    After reading his bio from his announcement I definitely have to agree that he does get around:

    A lot of coaches have resumes that read like this. It’s a really tough career path, especially if you want to climb the ladder. It typically involves a lot of family relocations and many other sacrifices. Then after that you also have to have a little luck. You have to really love coaching to put yourself and your family through it. Listen to the AFCA podcast sometime. It’s amazing the journey many of these guys go on.

    There’s also not much money until you eventually become a head coach. Even then it’s not always great. A lot of coaches have side gigs to supplement their income. I was just at the Glazier Clinic in Pittsburgh a few weeks ago and half of the presenters were college coaches, many of them selling jump drives with their plays and drills on them.

    If Makle makes it to the fall that will be the biggest boost to the secondary this year. He was the best player back there last spring but his (and others) selfishness in not working in the classroom sabotaged the season............ jus sayin

    Hey All!

    Now that Spring is here, just wanted to get the communities thought on the incoming class. Do you think any of the incoming Freshman could make an impact right away, or is it just a "get in line, work hard and wait your turn" scenario? My thoughts on a few of the kids that stood out, looking at their film:

    Stone Shugarts - Recruit from GA. Legacy so the DNA is there. Look like he has room to bulk.
    Darrius Lloyd - Recruit from MD. Brother is on IUP. Not sure that's the right size to play LB, but might be prototype Safety if he has the speed.
    David Filippello - Recruit from Eastern PA. Looks big but still with room to add on his frame. A lot of his film was OL, and looked good. Curious that hes a DL Recruit.
    Adam Houser - Recruit from Shippensburg, of all places. A good get for IUP. Small, but fast and can break the big one. Could be impact from day 1.

    The biggest surprise to me was the point was made several times about the academic accomplishments. Do you think theses guys were brought in to bump up the team GPA, or do they have a shot to contribute on the field immediately?

    They were brought in to succeed on the field -- and in the classroom. Tort had to talk about it so much this off-season because he got roasted for the all the knucklheads last year being academic stooges. You lose 7-8 guys pre-camp to grades and it not only ruins the season but also makes the HC look like he has no control.

    IMO, the academic emphasis is all about lessons learned about acquiring players with the ability to stay academically eligible. All the talent in the world won't help, if the player cannot stay eligible to play. $100 talent with a 10¢ brain won't cut it. IUP painfully learned that lesson.

    Spring drills should be starting anytime here. What are some of the story lines that our esteemed roundtable will be following this spring?

    I think the obvious headlining story should be Davis vs. Wilkerson with a shot to be the starting signal caller on the line.

    I think there will be a lot of positional groups that will warrant a peek to see what is going on there.

    Running backs- We found out last year they were not exactly the can't miss group everyone assumed as attrition took its toll on them. How does IUP412 practice squad MVP Duane Brown do? Does he bring his talents to full fruition? And as Number83 tells us---the frosh back could possibly emerge as a candidate for quality carries.

    O-line- a bit of an off year for them. How do they re-group and reload?

    D-line- should be better with a year of seasoning after all the losses from 2017.

    Secondary- Should be an interesting group to monitor with a key return and a quality transfer added to the mix.

    Punter- Ruiz will leave some big shoes to fill.

    Coaching staff- will have to weather the storm come May when grades come out. Hopefully things go better than last year. Also a lot of heat on the OC after some suspect play-calling last year according to our roundtable.

    It should make for a very exciting spring! Hopefully Tort will let us know when the scrimmages are before the spring game. Seemed like he was more transparent about such things in his first year when he had some magic happening.

    I think you missed the obvious position issue. Wide receiver

    JoJo and Dom McNeil back, maybe Zac Kelly, but he has been average at best. a few of the rest showed potential, maybe, but only 7 on the roster, which includes walkons.

    WR should be the easiest to fill this summer with cast-offs and mercenaries.

    No other position is more loaded on the transfer market than WR. They just don't get that damn ball enough and as a group transfer like crazy.

    I've heard Kolbe Hughes could also be back.

    Not saying this is a horrible recruiting class, but for the areas IUP need to fill on the playing field this coming season I just don't believe they have any incoming freshmen that can be an impact there. However, the past few years IUP has had bad luck in the books and health wise. So if that happens again at the RB position, then I believe Adam Houser could make an impact Day One, like you stated.

    QB - That will be the big story during both Spring and Fall camps, which QB will step up, and to be honest this "could" include the mid-season transfer from Toledo.

    RB - Barring injuries/academics, this should be a pretty strong group, especially with the return of Duane Brown. I wonder will they move one of the RBs (Anderson or Justice) to the Slot position?

    WR - Would like to see any development from the reserve WRs, particularly FCS transfer Sobers and Zac Kelly, can they be trusted during games, or will they once again go out and find 1-2 1-year mercenaries.

    OL - With the Malone University transfer coming in, it looks like the OL is set. But I would like to see if guys like McLean Djouha or Collin Pietropola has made any progress.

    DL - Who will emerge as the replacement for Deandre Easterling ? Will they move Shockley back to DE or will guys like Qwamere Wright-Downing or Drake Puffenbarger developed into starting material.

    LB - With both Damon Lloyd and Amedola being Seniors, they MUST start developing their replacements. Would like to see how far Joe Tortorella and Byron Williams has developed.

    DB - We know what we have in Stevens, Makle, Shaq Jones and perhaps Streater. Just wonder who will standout from the group of 12 DBs for playing time.

    Hopefully someone will finally provide some info via the football twitter account (quiet since early Feb) on Spring practice.

    If he comes back IUP should be a serious contender in the PSAC West.

    I guess I figured that with Dom and JoJo entrenched as the starters they were okay there. But I agree they need depth there. Kolbe coming back would be huge!

    My opinion is if you are ever relying on 'true' freshmen to solve problems ... you already have problems.

    Those dudes haven't even been to their senior proms yet. Ideally you redshirt all of them. Physically maybe one will be ready. The jump is huge.
