I'm not about to beat the horse some more, but it does bear asking the question: What does the awarding of five more scholarships to walk-ons do to our attempts to sign a super big class in 2013? By my count we are at 80 guys on 'ship. We have 17 seniors. With no other attrition, that only leaves us 22 spots.
Just looking at it, it is reasonable to assume at least two Juniors will be gone in the draft. It is possible one more makes it, so that takes us to 25. Even with past attrition numbers, it would take a pretty rough year to get to 31-32.
Did I do the math right?
PS. Let me be clear, the guys awarded the scholarships absolutely deserve them. Hall is projecting to be the first week starter at FB. Norman and McGowan will see plenty of action, as well last prior walk-ons Frix and Faloughi. All are Damn Good Dawgs.
