So Walls won't be starting against Nevada then?

Interesting.

 

I also wonder how Ethan feels about getting moved inside to D tackle.

It's a lot harder to make plays on the inside, but there are way fewer great D tackles in college than there are D ends.

Could be a great career move (NFL).

Dont like Aldridge at KR. I know you wanna throw him a bone but that's not it. He's not dynamic out of the backfield so we'll give him the KR duties? doesn't make sense.

 

Evans isn't listed in the 2 deep at X or Y....doesn't mean he won't be in during 3 WR sets at all.

 

Forget anything after the starters at LB. It's so fluid with the Nickel LB's etc. (Filer will play, as will Teo).

 

I really hope Walls gets healthy takes that spot back from McNeil.

Walls will def play alot. But the odds of him starting after missing a wk and half of camp were slim after missing a yr.

 

Ethan primarily played DT last yr as well.

Filer will def play as well, he's going to be mixed in at SLB and also DE in nickel situations.

Any idea whether Jonas Gray's backup slot is a result of Robert Hughes having to sit out the first half of the game because that Southern Cal punk mixed it up with him last November? Or has Gray just shown more in practices?

 

I find it quite interesting that after all the talk about how dominant Paul Duncan has been in fall camp that Matt Romine is now possibly the starter. Also a bit surprised that Chris Stewart and Dan Wenger are co-starters. A bad few weeks for Stewart or an impressive showing by Wenger?

I've been away for the past few weeks, when did Hughes get suspended and do we know for what?

 

for defending his teammates (or as the media says "fighting") during the sc game. i believe it only lasts for the first half, though.

Gray being the #2 is a combo of both things you said. Hughes being suspended for the 1st half and Gray earning playing time.

 

Duncan is the starter, it's more of a testament to how well Romine has played. Duncan and Stewart are the starters, but Romine & Wenger will both play. CW explained it this way.

I think Wood coming in at 220 lbs was unnecessary and probably hurt his chances at KR. I still think he'll be in the mix there eventually, there's no way he's worse than Aldridge at KR.

 

Also, I'd still think Tate/Allen are the best bets there. If we are willing to risk Tate/Allen for punt return duties why not kick return duties?

I think its a continuation of the Trevor Robinson experiment. Sadly, there is a possibility that the staff feels like he needs direct competition for playing time. Stewart is a monster so as long as the staff keeps him motivated, good things should happen.

Well the way the new depth chart shook out, there will only be one for sure returning starter with Stewart a fifth year candidate. Some of those younger guys will have to get valuable minutes this year so that we don't have a green line again. Wenger's a fifth year candidate as well. As it stands now, Wenger, Stewart and Robinson may all return that have a considerable amount of game minutes logged. It would make perfect sense to get younger guys time this year because some of them will be seeing a whole lot of time next year.

 

I'm surprised about Walls too and Aldridge returning kicks. Not sure what the logic is there.

JA is back for kick offs but he will not be taking the KO's riddick will be taking almost all the kickoffs. JA will block for kick offs.

 

Was that explained in a presser or just what you hope is the case? Cause even though Riddick hasn't done anything yet I kick to Aldridge if I'm Nevada
