Like I mentioned in another thread, Dawson commented on how he waned to play in the Big 10. I guess know he gets his chance since he has commited to Illinois.

Trotwood-Madison might as well be Trinity. UK's never getting a scholarship player out of either one.

Why is that so at T-M? Isn't the coach a former Cat?
Yep. And UK's about 0-for-20 there the last 10 years. (Or at least feels like it.)
Maurice Douglass, head coach, Trotwood-Madison.
I get that, but WHY? Is Douglas more interested in making a name for himself by sending his kids to regional big 10 schools? That's what it looks like to me.
Could be that he doesn't take an active role in steering guys to UK (many coaches try to stay out of that) or the kids don't put a great deal of stock in his input. Honestly, I don't know. This is all guesswork. It's just really odd that UK's never able to get any kids out of that school.
It seems to me that kids that go to Trinity act like they are just to good to fall back to UK.
Don't know that for sure but I do have a few older friends that played there and they hate UK like an X wife and her attourney. LOL. They are all like UK no way EKU would be there option before UK. lol
The Trinity kids are the front runner type. Why else would so many go to a Trinity and sit on the bench when they could start at other schools.
Those kids are looking for a school that they percieve as a top team not a team that they could improve by attending. It take a very special kid to take a risk and try to build his own thing over following the herd to those already successfull programs.
College football is much like the US economy in that the rich continue to become much richer and those less fortunate continue to struggle and regress. It is a cycle that is difficult to break.
Dawson will still visit UK as of now. And Mo Douglass brings a group of players to UK every year. He's always telling his kids to check out Kentucky. I just don't understand. He is not going to say, hey, you need to go here, but he puts UK's foot in the door.
It's the oddest thing I have seen since following UK football recruiting over the last 10+ years.
