    The roster shows 26 scholarship juniors.

    Also, Tupou is expected to be back as of the last report... but who knows.

    So that means that there's attrition of 4 or 5 guys with junior eligibility.

    Assuming all the red shirts are used (adkins, Gillam, and Henington if he gets another), that leaves 3 guys by my count. Basically only three guys on the list haven't played at all this year: Talianko, Rippy, and Yuri.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Talianko medically retired. Surgery for a fractured knee at the end of July.

    Do we actually have guys we're still after that we want to get those extra scholarships? I suppose this definitely opens available spots for the group of visitors from Louisiana.

    Well with John Walker off the team now, that one fewer senior next year. And on the flip side, one extra scholarship.

    That basically ends the speculation for now on the non-redshirting juniors. That means talianko is going to be back as well.

    Before clicking on thread I was thinking this is our "excuse" for next year already.

    What was the deal with Walker leaving?

    Battling injuries all year. He tweeted a lot about battling through shoulder problems. Made the decision to focus on getting his degree.
