    Needs for next year to be competitive again

    This season is not over and I hope our team improves. It should be an audition for playing time next year, IMO and I hope we can get healthy and win a few more games. In looking at our roster by position (something I do every year....I know, I'm bored) we really have Juco needs, IMO, at LB, S and DE.

    Defense

    S No one really proven but 4 early leaders of Cotton, Mutcherson, Shaeffer and Syrie. Will Rogers be moved to S (I hope so) or remain at Nickel? IMO, a David Sims type S would be a good get to solidify this group. We'll be green as it is.

    CB Richardson, Tribune, Thomas, Cotton-Moya and not a whole lot else. 1 Juco corner needed for sure. Maybe 2.

    LB Knott is the only one that I think is a lock. All the others are toss ups. I am bumbed that White must not be progressing or we'd have seen him by now. Is Meeks outgrowing the LB spot and move to DE? Seeley, Madison, Miller, Brackens, Mills, Webster, White. Have numbers, but Quality? Could be very young. Need a MLB than can be a stud to lead this defense. We need to land 1 MLB and 1 OLB, IMO that are can't miss kids. Can Meeks be the MLB leader? Lot to ask from a youngster. Need competition here.

    DE Should be ok. Aka move back to DE? Kron, Morrissey, Meyers and Aka? Backed up by Lemke, Waggoner. Possibly 1 OLB/DE pass rusher type would be good from Juco.

    DL Should be a strength. Coe, Cousin, Jensen, Irving, supported by Trent, Krick, Garcia, Cousin.

    Offense

    OL Need a healthy OL next year. If we stay healthy this Fall, I really want to see this group develop, and gel. Farniok, Loth at C. Guards Burton, Lalk, Omoile, supported by Williams, Glenn, Graham?, Severs, Homa. Tackles Dagel, Gannon, Dunning, supported by Campos, Curtis.

    RB 3 in Wimberly, Nealy and Standard, supported by Brown and Mister hopefully. Need a replacement for Woody in short yardage. Need to stay healthy here. Possible Juco FB spot if right fit.

    QB Sam supported by Rohach, Hodge, Lanning

    TE Bibbs, Boesen, supported by Leslie and Quan West. Leslie cannot be a "miss" and/or West needs to add some weight and block well.

    WR Very Deep. Bundrage, Daley, Ecby, Harris, Harris, Montgomery, West and Lazard. Will OL develop so we have enough time to throw downfield?

    K Netten

    P New kid coming in on Schollie will need to start.

    Those are my thoughts. Would not be shocked if 5-6 JUCO guys get signed to shore up our gaps. If we don't shore up LB, DE and S, it will be a LONG year next year, IMO.

    Really? That is not grammar I learned growing up in Iowa. Dude, go back to the swamp and eat some crawfish. You sure you are a Cyclone? Not sure you can count either. We do not have 5 or 6 more scholarships left for either Freshmen or Jucos. Please think before posting.

    Dude, you are a Moron. Count who we have signed plus the loss of players not coming back next year currently on scholarship and there's your answer. It could be a large class. It is quite obvious where we have needs for next year. Do you really think with all the pressure that will be on CPR next year that he will rely on true freshmen to fill the void? I doubt it. Next time I need a grammar lesson, you will be the last person I look to. Chill the hell out.

    Better play and more consistency on both lines, better tackling, better offensive play calling.

    Dude, bruh, I'd bet a lot we have at least 5 more open. Started with 17. Dika will be gone. Richardson is gone. It wouldn't surprise me to see a guy like Loth or Matt Thomas conclude their career early and you will probably lose at least one more just due to normal transfers and such. We have 15 so That gives us 4 for sure, plus about 2 more. That's seven. Math before you post.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Hey Texass...just so you understand (you might need to take your shoes off so you can count these up). Lose 17 seniors, have 3 juniors who probably will never play again (Richardson for sure, Dika for sure and probably Graham). There's your 20. I doubt we actually sign all 15 high schoolers we have verbally committed, so, let's assume we lose two or three. Wow, magically we have enough room for some Juco's. I say we sign a minimum of 4. I know, in Texas, that's tough to comprehend. Now put your shoes back on, and quit spouting off about 1 word that was mis-typed, not mis-spelled.

    We will not sign 5 or 6 Jucos. If we do, I will be BUMBED. :)

    Cotton-Moya is a safety, and I wouldn't be surprised if the two safeties next year were Rogers and either Cotton-Moya or Mutcherson.

    At corner it will be Tribune and Richardson, maybe that JUCO that would come with Clinkscales

    I'd be happy with a JUCO at LB, DE, or DT. We have to be better on the defensive front and if that is improved by a couple JUCOs to provide depth or be difference makers, sign me up.

    The offensive line should have more depth next year since we lose only Lictenburg and Tuftee and gain all those freshmen off redshirt. Having guys like Omoile, Burton, Lalk, and Dagel get all this playing time as underclassmen will only pay dividends in the future. If our starters are Gannon, Burton, Farniok, Lalk, and Dagel next year, we suddenly have some guys for depth that have had quality time on the line under their belt, plus the talent of Campos, glenn, Curtis, and co. With all that said, those guys have to improve a bunch between now and then. The potential is there, now the coaches have to bring them along.

    How is the DL a strength next year?? If the same guys are playing it won't be.

    Re: Needs for next year to be competitive again

    Despite what the mouthbreathers out there might say, your analysis is worthwhile. I spent a bit of time thinking about this myself the last few weeks.

    For next year, I think we could use 1 JUCO at every position group on defense, most importantly at safety and linebacker, but DT and DE aren't far behind. Depends somewhat on what we plan to do with Charlie Rogers. If he's going to safety, then I'm a little less concerned about safety and I get more concerned about CB. We need Lynn and Lawry to put on some weight and get things figured out. (Why Lawry moved to WR is beyond me - must be a pure morale problem. I would tell him we need him to put on 8-10 pounds and get back to CB where he is sorely needed).

    Tribune playing has all the signs of Rogers going to safety next year. I'm told Cotton-Moya has all the tools to be a starter, so that's a positive, but he's never played. Upside is that I think out safety play this year has been really average, so teh bar is pretty low. I'm concerned about linebacker. We're a year late on recruiting a JUCO there, but we still need one IMO. I think we take a high quality DT or DE if they are relatively low-risk or December grad types. IF there is much question about them, I would prefer to go with a HS kid. You don't turn a Clinkscales for instance.
