    Rob Standard - Kansas game

    Anyone else notice that he didnt have his regular #10 jersey on. He was wearing #17 without his name on the back. Did they forget his jersey or what was the reason for this?

    He switched so he could play on special teams as #10-JW does as well.

    Re: Rob Standard - Kansas game

    Like the fact that an athlete like Rob Standard is playing Special Teams. A lot of people do not realize how big the Special Teams contributions are. Back in the late '70's a player named Pat Kennedy was an animal on Special Teams who became a fan favorite because of his special teams play. And I remember Ryan Baum as well in later years. Special Teams are a great way for younger players to contribute until their time comes to play on either the offensive or defensive units. And just being on Special Teams contributes in a big way if you can rest your offensive and defensive starters and not have to play them on the Special Teams.

    Re: Rob Standard - Kansas game

    There was a white dude on special teams a few years ago that was absolutely crazy. He would go airborn about every time down the field. Crowd loved him. Can't remember his name.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Rob Standard - Kansas game

    Johnny Majors was the first I'm aware of to exploit special teams because our offensive and defensive untis were not competitive. He went beyond setting up trick return plays and onside kicks by spending more practice time and using some of his star starters (of which we had a precious few). Because his first string offense found it very difficult to compete with other teams' defenses, he added extra emphasis on getting scores from the defense and special teams.

    Personally, I think there shouldn't be any duplicate numbers.

    Then you're limiting yourself to only 14 walk-ons.

    With over 99 players on the team, you kinda have to...

    Re: Rob Standard - Kansas game

    I think the player should have to "earn" their number. I know, it sounds cheesy, but I think it would motivate the players.
