    I think to stay relevant programs are having to refocus their recruiting on smaller athletic players that are more widely available and not in high demand by bigger programs. One solution is to move to more of an option-based offense. I think you are just going to see the pro-style offense just sort of disappear at this level. Sad, but a reality of FCS football in 2017.
    True.

    There are also more kids coming out of high school each year. Population growth, more quantity could mean more quality. Improvements in college programs also contribute to closing the gap. Population growth should mean a slow upgrade of athletes along with improving football programs at the high school level if alternative sports, video gaming, and the risk of injury being elevated and discussed doesn't slow it down.

    Newsome will only need 1,933 all purpose yards to become the SoCon's all time leader. I thought at first this would be hard to get however last season they reported he was able to get 2,343 yards

    He can be a beast. I think he had a little bit of pressure on him last year. He chocked a couple times with fumbles but a real talented guy to be sure. Between your young QB and him it will be interesting. Especially if get your D going.
