    DL vs Iowa (& rest of the season)

    Dutch (Rump) is a big question-mark. If not close to 100%, I see no need to put him out there this weekend - rest of the season is more important.
    Coaches & med staff will make the best decision for Dutch & the team - not questionning that nor wanting to discuss. However, here is my take on things:
    Laing back will be big (thought he came around late last season). He & Jake can work the middle. If Dutch is not in that mix, then what should happen?

    I believe Jensen & Woods should be rotated in there. See no need to put Neal back in there where he is over-matched physically. Jensen & Woods played okay late vs UNI, and I see no negatives in having them rotate there and leaving Neal @ DE (especially now with Maggitt out for the season - heal fast & well, Rosey)

    What y'all think?

    I agree, Dutch will probably be very limited yet, Laing was said to be the most athletic DL player, which is encouraging, really want to Jensen and Woods get more snaps and Henry or Caspers get worked in by Texas.... 6 man rotation would be very nice.... Please keep Neal out of DL and inat DE!

    Definitely want to rotate to keep guys fresh. I think D line will be better than advertised if they can get healthy.

    Re: DL vs Iowa (& rest of the season)

    Yep, getting Laing back will be big, he looked good towards the end of last season. Really wish Rump would get back, it sucks to already be down two DL starters by the 2nd game of the season. Woods and Jensen were better inside than Neal, plus Neal will be back at end, so that is who I'd guess would be the 2nd string if Rump is out.
