There will be more.

Shivers is really the only one that remotely hurts. Kid was a baller and worked his tail off. Just didn't have vertical talent in size. Vandy also just lost 2 Former Four Star defensive players to the portal.

On another note, Gus' Stud QB at UCF - Dillon Gabriel - hit the portal yesterday and word on da skreets is he's heading to the Lane Train. Smart kid indeed. Sounds like he figured out Gus in short order, before we even did. He went from one of the worst passing systems to one of the best in 24 hours. Well played kid.

Hate to lose Shivers, mainly because he played about 3 times his actual size.  Kid had desire and heart...you don't find that as often as you used to anymore.

Figured Canion was gone when he didn't make the traveling squad to see the all important white out.
If Johnson couldn't crack the 3 deep on the DL this season, probably best he makes a spot for another transfer there.

Not surprising at all with Shivers.

2018:  70 carries for 371 yards

2019: 55 carries for 286 yards

2020: 62 carries for 276 yards (10 receptions)

2021: 14 carries 87 yards  (22 receptions)

Basically, Bobo relegated Shivers to the swing pass guy.  And if you noticed, there wasn't a lot of that going on the last few games.  It had become similar to Malzahn, in that whenever Shivers (Devan Barrett) came in, that's the only thing he's in the game for. Hope he gets a chance to light it up somewhere.

He is (ironically) the only back on the roster that had the top end speed to turn that edge consistently against Bama and was used NONE in that regard.

That should have been a fireable offense.  Oh wait...

McLain is a senior, no?  So just foregoing the mulligan year to hit the draft, would be my guess.

I am thinking back.  I know, the booze and drugs causing memory loss makes that dangerous, but I can't recall Shivers doing much other than having like 4 or 5 amazing plays 3 years ago or so.

Kind of beat bammer with one play 2 years ago. And had flashes every 3rd game or so. Amazing speed.

I've seen two different articles on the possibility of Bo leaving.  Mostly speculation, but they seem to say he's indicated that he is undecided.

Yessir.  His stock is about as high as it can get right now.  I'd figure him as a 3rd or 4th round pick mainly because he's a little undersized for the NFL.

Be foolish to leave now unless Harsin has for some dumbshit reason urged the kid to move on.

He was showing obvious signs of improvement with some rudimentary...some might say Bobo...coaching.  Two more years and he owns all the QB records at AU and works his way into the top 3 rounds, minimum.

There is a rumor floating around that Pat is in the running for the Troy HC job and that Bo would follow him.  I doubt Bo would follow him and I also doubt that Pat gets hired for the job.  Jon Sumrall would be my guess.

Pat Boone is too old to be coaching football.  Besides, he has no ties to Troy.
