    Has Chris Thompson been on special teams?

    I only see 4 WRs, I thought we brought in 5?

    Bailey? Sounded like a redshirt coming into the season according to Muschamp.

    If we dont have any more injuries we are going to redshirt 9 guys on the line of scrimmage.

    Exactly what Muschamp wants. If you are ready to compete immediately, great, but most of those guys get better over team. Most need size, strength, technique work, etc., to contribute.

    One thing that is very interesting is that the only Frosh LB who looks to be redshirting is the injured Rolin.

    This was a pretty strong group of LB recruits.

    Shirting all those DL takes a lot of pressure off of recruiting at those positions. Same with the OL, though it wasn't really a stellar group on that side of the LOS.

    Ivie and Hawkins are both surprises, but imagine Ivie is going to get some serious work in the weight room. I recall seeing something right after the freshmen arrived listing Hawkins at just over 170 when he was supposedly a 200 plus high school player. Not sure if that was accurate or not. Also don't believe that alone would keep him off the field.

    IMO that would be a huge mistake.....these guys need to get real time reps on a big time CFB field this year, even if it is against crappy teams...that is how you tell if you have a gamer or if they might want to consider a transfer.....
    Our LOS on both sides of the ball is going to be lacking experience and or quality big time next year, especially on defense.

    It's so rare a LOS player is physically ready to play in this league, it makes no sense to play them unless you absolutely have to, or they are just freaks.

    I'm not sure how you would tell a LOS player is a 'gamer' by watching him go up against physically inferior opponents.

    That's not the case at all for the offensive line. You don't rotate offensive linemen, so unless they are prepared to start or be in that top seven, then you essentially waste a year of eligibility. I completely disagree that you can tell whether someone is a "gamer" as a freshman. Medder, Trautwein, Watkins, Johnson, just to name a few, were completely lost at first.

    You can make a better argument on the defensive side of the ball, but again if they can't get in that top 8 or so and give you 15-20 reps, then you are also wasting a year. You don't need to be great, but you have to be able to contribute. We've had a ton of guys like that over the years. Again, though, you don't waste a redshirt on a guy to play late in games against bad opponents.

    Backs, receivers, linebackers, and safeties play at less difficult positions to master physically or mentally and they can also contribute on special teams. But not along the line.

    I guess our OL and DL depth is really good then since we are redshirting all these guys so that shouldn't be an excuse why we loose.

    They may not be physically inferior to a freshmen who needs to gauge what it takes to play at that position on a division 1 level.....again practice reps are not the equivalent to playing in a actual game. Most players make their biggest gains size and strength gains in their 1st year so if they already know what to expect when they step on the field as a starter or rotating player as a sophomore there is no "new player" break in period, getting the jitters out and building confidence that only comes from the "real thing"....

    The Oline argument is just wrong so I will ignore that one especially since we will have plenty of experience on the line next year.

    This "gamer" stuff is also ridiculous you either do the stuff you are supposed to to get on the filed or you don't play. No reason to waste a year of eligibility. We dont need any of the Oliemen to start next year. On the Dline if Orr stays then we dont need any of the Dline to stat next year either. It would be Orr Cumming and a Juco the redshirt frehsmen would have to fight to beat those guys out which is how you want it.

    If Powell leaves his replacement is going to be McMillian or Rolin. I think Rolin is a perfect Sam

    Hawkins got a high ankle sprain a few days before camp started and it bothered him throughout camp so he never really got a chance to show what he could do. Hawkins is over 210 lbs.

    I always kind of thought Ivie would redshirt even with him being an EE. Great motor strong kid not an elite athelete and needs a lot of technique work
