    NOTE: We will only have 83 scholarship players during the fall because Hamilton and Moore count against the 85 limit this fall. Sanchez was going to count against the 85, but medically retired to free up that scholarship.

    Of note, the NCAA maximum for D1 FBS is 85 scholarship players. At least 5 of these names will not be among the scholarship players for the 2018 season.

    That will mean attrition (transfers, graduations or medical retirements). It could also include an incoming freshman or two greyshirting to delay his enrollment until January of 2019.

    Last year after signing day, I believe that CU was at 89 scholarship players. We ended up heading to fall camp with 85. Then we had Sebastian Olver decide he didn't want to play football along with dismissals of Falo, Umu and Julmisse. Bale was granted a scholarship as our Snapper and Brown was brought in as a transfer at WR to bring the final season scholarship number to 83.

    These things have a way of working their way out.

    I'd like to avoid publicly speculating on the players that way. It can turn into bashing way too quickly without good moderation and, frankly, most of us mods are lazy, stupid or both. :D

    I think we all know who has had injury struggles, hasn't been in the 2-deep rotations despite multiple years in the program, and who has likely been recruited over. Shouldn't be hard for anyone to go down that list and come up with 5+ names as potential candidates to graduate, medically retire or look for a better opportunity to see the field as a college football player.

    My guesses (as all of these guys have been recruited over):
    ______ (Sr) and _______ (Jr) - Medical retirement
    _____ (Sr) - Graduate and move on
    _________ (Sr) - Graduate and move on

    _____ (Sr) Medical retirement OR ___ (Sr) Graduate and move on due to the Mcmillian signing. 1 of the 2 need to make room.

    ______ (Sr) - Graduate and move on if we sign Casey Tucker
    __________ (Jr) - Transfer out if we sign Dwayne Wallace

    _______ (So) - Transfer out if we sign Tchangam

    ________ is very concerning to me. If we don't hear that he is practicing this Spring then I'll assume that he is a candidate for early retirement.

    Unless I just lock the thread, it's going to be the discussion and people will post. But knowing this is why I'd kept this behind the pay wall before and I'm hoping I didn't make a huge mistake.

    Everyone, please be respectful of the players and their families in this thread. Any bashing will cause bans and whatnot.

    Really excited to see some of these younger guys get more and more playing time. Some really great buffs in the JR and SR classes but there's so much talent coming up in the program.

    That leaves: Chance Lytle, Colby Pursell who grayshirted, with Moretti, Paige, Sherman and Polley all in the same class.
    I think that will take care of itself as 6 is a bit heavy.

    The 2018 class likely redshirts en mass, and is fine.

    He never Grayshirted. That link even states
    He played 59 snaps in 2017, mostly STs.

    Bizarre. This is good and I thought you were right, but I'd been going by the CU site. I'll edit here and in Barzil.

    Also need to be careful in assuming that a kid isn't going to contribute.

    It isn't often but every once in a while some guy who everyone has written off who then has the light turn on and makes a big jump forward. You can't build a program hoping for this to happen but these guys we are thinking about still should have spring to show they should stay.

    Vaughn ended up not GSing. I don’t remember clearly but I think it was the Patrick Carr news that made room for Vaughn (also that he made noticeable gains with McChesney).

    Any chance we could have the redshirt freshman and true freshman split up into separate columns? No big deal if not. I just view the breakdown as five classes instead of four.

    I'm not going to do that, but I can add the box where it's totaled to break it out as RS-Frosh & True Frosh numbers.

    That O-line class balance is scary but promising at the same time.. 2019 especially could see a huge step up if they stay together and healthy. 3 of them I believe will start in 2019 and then 2 from the intriguing freshman class.

    Really does highlight how much a proven starter would help if we could get a grad transfer senior this offseason. It's the biggest hole on the roster in terms of risks/unknowns heading into the 2018 season. That one guy would do so much to bridge this year to the future on the OL where in 2019 we'll have several experienced 5th year seniors and a bunch of 3rd year sophomores.

    Did Shutack get put on scholarship or is he a walk on? If we are at 90 now and looking for a grad transfer, will he have to stay as a walk on paying out of state tuition?
    I was very hopeful he could get in the 2 deep at OL, but you would think he would have been put on scholarship if that was the case.
    If Shutack isn't stepping forward hopefully Vaugh, Lytle or Paige can.

    He is a walk-on. Definitely the caliber of player that CU might have offered coming out of high school. So the fall and this spring are likely an audition for the possibility of being put on scholarship. Definitely a name to watch. He's a RS-Junior for the 2018 season. 6'6" 290.

    Added Tchangam and Loy. Buffs are now at 92 on the scholarship count. Start of spring ball is going to include a lot of attrition announcements, I'd guess.

    No He was hoping to be one and done if he did really well. Has some things to work on as reality’s set in.

    Not that I've seen. Howell seemed to have info that Ant wouldn't be back, but nothing I've seen that confirms this.
