    Re: BLOG: No redshirt, no problem for starting LB's

    I'm hoping that this year the starting linebackers become the "Killer J's" to follow up the "Killer K's"...




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    Also could be used as a nickname for the basketball team... I like where this is headed. (K's would have worked with BASEBALL!!!!!)

    If there is one thing with this staff that I am very frustrated with, it has been playing true freshmen players on defense so often. I just don't see what the benefit was to playing Knott, Klein, Irving, George, etc etc. when none of them contributed much if any at all.

    I think you could defend Klein and Knott because they were immediately high level starters as true sophomores, but George is harder to defend, and Irving is extremely hard to defend. I am very excited to hear Meeks is redshirting if possible.

    Really hoping Meeks can redshirt and either Knott and White can step up and help contribute. I've had real high hopes for White since he committed

    I didn't like the fact that these kids didn't redshirt as much as the next guy, the solace I take from it is that it won't have to happen anymore.

    Knott, Klein, and Irving all played enough snaps to where it made sense. The staff really didn't have a choice. You have to have some depth and we wouldn't have had any if those guys didn't play.

    This staff has actually done a better job of redshirting players and building depth than the staffs that came before them

    I'm not sure where the other J is.

    Let's get excited when he actually has been able to complete a redshirt year. Having to pull a redshirt in the middle of the season due to injuries, suspensions or other crappy reasons always sucks.

    I agree with Snowcraig to a point. It's crazy to think that Jevohn Miller is a junior already. A RS year would have been nice. You would think you could find upperclassmen to play special teams so incoming freshman wouldn't have to.

    I may be all wet, but I always thought that the main reason for playing players in this situation on special teams was less because you needed the bodies on special teams and more to get players who you feel may have to contribute on O or D during the season some experience under fire before you have to throw them out there regularly. I would think that the last thing you would want is to have the guy who is 3rd on your depth chart have no game experience when you have your #1 or #2 go down at the beginning of a game. Suddenly your reserve coming in hasn't even seen the field. Not a good situation.

    Again, I may be way off base...

    I would like to see a list of the percentage of true freshmen each Big 12 program redshirts. My guess is that most programs play a larger percentage of true freshmen than we do.

    The point is did Jevon Miller need that for last year? He could have redshirted and gotten that experience last year.
