    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Been a while since a good number of the boys have been together.

    Anxious to see more of them back together again.

    Been literally a month...I expect most sitting out because of injury the last 2 weeks could have played if the games were big enough. Then you add Chase back in obviously

    I have a feeling we're in for a treat on Saturday, those boys are going to be hungry after sitting out for awhile.

    Arnette is actually on some draft boards in the top 32. Has any team ever had 3 corners go in the first round? I have to think not.

    Not counting commits in the 2020 class, we will have at most six scholarship LBs on roster, and maybe as little as four if Werner and Borland bail (UFM seems to think both of them are quite draftable, and me thinks Borland may be encouraged to enter the transfer portal if he doesn't declare). We lose Malik Harrison, along with Justin Hilliard if he does not get a 6th year. That would leave us with two LBs with any real game action (Mitchell and Pope) as Eichenberg has yet to play a snap and Stover has appeared in three blowouts (Cincinnati, Miami, Rutgers):

    Tommy Eichenberg (Fr) 6-3 225
    Cade Stover (Fr) 6-4 225
    Teradja Mitchell (So) 6-2 242
    K'Vaughan Pope (So) 6-1 231

    Pete Werner (Jr) 6-3 239
    Tuf Borland (Rs-Jr) 6-1 232

    Malik Harrison (Sr) 6-3 240
    Justin Hilliard (5th-Sr) 6-1 235


    While we have two top-11 LBs coming in along with the #41 LB (per 247), Hilliard getting his 6th year would be huge.

    EDIT: As pointed out by two esteemed colleagues, my dumb ass overlooked Browning (Jr) and Gant (So). That's what happens when old fucks don't take a nap before posting.

    Don't laugh, your time's coming...

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    OK, what happened to Baron Browning (Jr) 6-3 248?

    Re: me thinks Borland may be encouraged to enter the transfer portal if he doesn't declare

    Has Tuf Borland graduated or is he on track to graduate by this Spring?

    I guess old farts like me can't go through the roster and eye-ball all the "LB" entries. :lol:

    You really think Borland would be encouraged to transfer? I don't understand why. Browning obviously has the higher upside, but Tuf is a captain and the coaches see him as the best option at starter currently.

    We've had captains who weren't starters. If the staff starts leaning towards giving the nod to Browning next season, they may politely tell him that greener pastures might be at another university as a grad transfer for his final year of eligibility. He also may turn around and accept his new role as backup for the overall good of the team, as any true captain would. Just saying I think it's a bit more than a remote possibility.

    Borland is the glue that holds the defense together.

    Against fast teams he also runs like he is stuck in glue.

    The coaches love him. He ain't going anywhere.

    Finally cared enough to watch Rutgers second half TDs... yeah not concerned at all lol.

    Two TDs came off of short fields and the other on an under thrown pass.

    If anything this shows you what happens when you turn the ball over.
