Bears need to replace the right side of the line
Btw, for everyone wondering where the money came from for Wilcox's push to be able to pay assistant coaches bigger salaries ( to attract solid assistants and keep them) and to expand his admin capabilities, here's a web page of an email I received. Get out your checkbooks (even for a small contribution) or you won't have a reason to complain. (And yes I give. I'm a Charter Hill member).
Maybe he's just transferring California University?
So, he's graduated and electing to move w/ one year of eligibility remaining, correct Rob?
Cal now has to replace the entire right side of the OL, frankly, if done properly, I view this as an opportunity for Cal. McKade was one of few solid OL for Cal, he will be missed.
Swinney could step into this role. He was very solid at center during the UA game ~ for a true freshman starting his first game. Angus has to play the top 5 OL regardless of seniority. I have little faith in Angus & one does wonder if Mckade felt that way?!? I expected 40% of the line to be new next year, now it is 60%. Craig can't be counted on at LT due to his regular injuries (not sure if he loves playing football). So Cal likely will start a new LT, RG, & RT. Cindric is likely a top 5 OL but Driscoll is as good, perhaps better, at center. So, Cindric could move to RG. Who knows who fills out the tackle spots, but however they go so shall the entire team. First blush, this probably ain't good.
man, I thought that guys were gonna stay now :(
The transfer portal wasn’t meant for open free agency when a guy feels a bit overwhelmed by COVID rules. It should be restricted to head coaching changes, position coach changes, and the occasional special exemption. Everything else should be old rules - sit a year before you get to play.
So who's the othe non senior?
As an aside, we are recruiting his brother who is a pretty good QB. If, and I don't know this to be true, McKade left unhappy we can probably kiss his brother good bye as well.
Why?????? Is "something" going on causing the transfers?
He seemed like a fixture on the line - he will be missed. But, good luck to him.
Yeah, this one hurts and was unexpected. Will Wilcox ever field a good OL?
This is a bad loss. He was nasty as hell.
