If you were a coach and your star player transferred to a school that is on your schedule for Week 1 of the coming season, would you allow that player to use your school’s athletic facilities in the meantime? According to Kyle Bonagura of ESPN.com, Eastern Washington Head Coach Beau Baldwin informed Vernon Adams that he will be unable to use the team’s athletic facilities for his remaining time on campus.
By now, we all know Adams has decided to bring his talents to Eugene for his last eligible season of college football. While that is a major risk on the part of Adams, as he does not even know if he will be given the starting position, he felt his talents could be put to better use under the tutelage of Mark Helfrich and staff.
Baldwin’s decision does not really come as a surprise to many. For one, this was something the two had talked about when rumors were flying about Adams’ interest in transferring to a big time Division I program. More importantly, however, is the fact that Oregon and Eastern Washington are facing off Week 1 of the 2015 season, as stated earlier. While being barred from the facilities is a big deal from a preparation perspective, Adams will figure out a situation that works best for him — one that he knows will get him in shape and ready for camp come summertime in beautiful Eugene.
