    Just think if we had the luxury to redshirt Irving last year. We would have him for another year longer. Same with George. He is just now coming into his own and he will be a Jr this season. He will play solid minutes this year but will only have a chance to start full time next year as a Sr. I'd love to have him for that extra year.

    I agree. As long as there are no more injuries at guard, Williams should redshirt, assuming he isn't good enough to start from day 1. I doubt that happens.

    Aka should redshirt as long as he isn't one of the top 4 defensive ends.

    Possible yes, likely no.

    Oh, and don't forget that Big Dawg was hurt all last year. I think it would be good for him to use this year to get stronger and be that much more prepared for next season.

    Re: Will there be any true freshman playing this fall?

    I think Aka coming in and playing could be a good thing. That means he's as good as expected and he can have solid pt before he's asked to step in and start next season. Knott and Klein played their freshman seasons for that very reason.

    Right, but even the coaches had admitted they wish they could have redshirted Klein and Knott. If there is enough quality bodies in front of the freshmen, they need a redshirt year.

    I expect the Manatee linebacker not to redshirt and have a special teams role similar to Klein, Knott, and Miller as freshmen.

    I could see that.

    George, Miller, Morgan, & Morton, are all the backup linebackers who would take up all the special teams LB responsibilities. Either George or Miller will likely be starting. So that leaves 3 backup linebackers to take special team duties. Do we usually use more than that? I would guess so?

    I see what your saying but think of him coming and getting in the weight room for a year. He is already 6'4" 255, with a year under Yancy could come out looking about 270. Put that opposite Irving in 2013 and watch the opposing QB wet their pants looking at our D Ends!

    I don't disagree that it might happen. I hope that we can stay healthy at linebacker and get by with Knott, Klein, George, Miller, and Morton for basically two linebacker spots. I hope all three freshmen linebackers can redshirt though.

    Redshirt Junior or Senior > True Junior or Senior

    And judging by CPR's quote, he feels it's better than you think that it is.

    I'd expect Netten to play, but I really, really hope they save Aka, since there are so many ends. Morrissey as well. I could see White playing, in the same way that Knott and Klein played special teams as frosh.

    Agreed...

    What have the QB's done to make anyone think this offense will be better than #8 tops in the Big 12? We have only been in the top half one time since Seneca left and I believe that was 2005 when ISU was #5. The offense has been TERRIBLE for years and we have seen these QB's are turnover machines. I hope they improve a ton before next season, even if they do they will be average.
