For comparison, here was the post-spring depth chart: http://www.allbuffs.com/threads/post-spring-depth-chart-may-12.116738/
Other than removing Patrick Carr, there's really no change.
Big thing I'm looking for when they officially report to camp is the numbers that get updated when they measure at in. For OL depth, in particular, some guys need to gain some weight in order to compete at those OT spots. And for our NT and DE depth, I want to see if Franke, Mathewes and Coleman have packed on some pounds.
And, of course, we're all curious about the new guys: Winfree, Lewis and Trego need to be ready to play right away as JUCO transfers and we need a couple freshman DBs to contribute.
Love the size some of the the guys have added. Miller at 280 bodes well for next year. Kronshage finally pushing 300. Matthewes up to 260. Very nice.
"Two fourth year juniors have declared this their senior season"
Anyone know who these 2 are?
Think there are plenty of things still to be determined on offense, expect it to take a few games to settle out. Irwin back and healthy should solidify the OL.
On defense, need to stay healthy at ILB and S, otherwise things start to get dicey.
I don't. Here is the list of juniors who have redshirted:
I would think Irwin and sutton.
Sutton seems to be a likely candidate. Could also see Graham being a good possibility.
Coleman, Sutton, and Graham I wouldn't shed a tear over.
I like Coleman. But he does need to put the weight on for this year.
Irwin is not leaving unless he gets drafted after this year.
Don't think that is entirely true.
Out of all the Juniors he is probably the least possible, unless he has another major injury or goes pro, which he/staff won't know at this time.
you would think so but there was some info on the rivals board over the offseason that seems to point to this being it for him, one way or another. Obviously that can change when he actually has to move on but still one to watch.
Hmmmm. Guess I missed that thread. Let's hope not.
Technically, Irwin is a 5th year junior. Only way he has a 6th year is if he applies for a medical hardship waiver, which I'd expect he would be granted. (He's the textbook case to the point where they even list him as a junior on the official roster.)
But he has been here 4 years already and his brother is graduating.
That first string OL looks like it could be decent. The two deep isn't terrifying, but there is a pretty clear drop off at most positions based on performance last season.
Another change, Shay Fields now wearing #1, instead of #5.
I am very interested in seeing where the incoming class slots into this. I think you see some shake up at WR and maybe RB. Really need Lewis and probably Maka to get into the rotation at LB to be successful there.
a little worried.
our entire starting D is sr with a smattering of jr and one soph.
should be solid this season, but what about next?
Get through this season first. Then worry.
There is a reason they are looking into some JUCO DT's right now.
That's a nice thing to have for this season. Nice change.
Likewise. 2017 will be a senior-laden offense in search of a QB to make it go, but a ton of "next man up" situations in the 2-deep on defense. It's going to be so important that some of the young guys, including freshmen, show a lot this year. And it's going to be huge to get some JUCOs along with some true frosh who can earn spots in the 2017 2-deep.
McCartney has already graduated. He will probably move on. But he could have another year if he wanted.
The other one Graham.
Just an FYI but this is the third depth chart HCMM has released and is not exactly accurate.Not sure what type of performance evaluations he has conducted to make changes. It seems very amateur to continue to release useless depth charts. Big P5 schools don't do this. tOSU has not adjusted or released a depth chart since last season. You need CONTACT to make a real depth charts. This is a P5 school and HCMM needs to conduct business like that and not a HS program or Disney movie plot.
What I have learned from HCMM over the years is that what he says is more wishful thinking than actual fact.
Nothing against Irwin but he hasn't played a lick of football for a year and he has only played 1 yr of college football. If he wants to go pro he would have to walk on water this year and erase all of his medical records.
College coaches are fully aware of the odds for going pro and it was foolish of HCMM to promote Irwin as an NFL pro tackle at this point. We haven't seen much of him being a D1 college tackle yet.
I think HCMM needs to pump the brakes a bit on these depth charts and let football start. Please
Isn't he going for his Masters? Is that going to be finished this academic year? He's a starter and I would assume he would be back for another year, if he has the opportunity.
Some people just need to be mad about something. Who cares about pencil depth charts? Or how osu handles them?
DOWN WITH DEPTH CHARTS AND HIGH EXPECTATIONS!
Maybe the dumbest complaint I've ever read. Even BigJim probably rolled his eyes at that.
Not even close to mad, just a realistic view.
I can find many other P5 schools that don't release random depth charts.
Random? One before and after spring ball and heading into fall camp?
