    Optimism for last years' redshirts

    The redshirt FB players from last season seem to be creating some buzz, which has me excited for next year. Guys like Black, Baysinger, etc. could possibly have a big impact on the team next year. Also, does anybody know if Carper is gonna try to make a go of it this year, or is he done?

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    last i remember from a radio show or something, Carper might be ready by fall(might being the key word). i was under the impression that 2008 would be a wash for him as well.

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    only prob with carper is doesnt he have to get NCAA aproval?...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    no, carper would have only been a junior this season so he still has eligibility. if he somehow does get on the field next year he can try for the medical redshirt and be a junior next year.

    I was pretty sure I heard his career was over after the injury, but I would love to be proved wrong.

    It would be nice to see him back in uniform next year adding depth to the linebacking core.

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    Cameron Bell didn't red shirt but he, Curtiz Mathis, and Anthony Green will be getting some serious reps in at linebacker. Each one goes at least 230 so we will have some size at line backer for the first time in awhile.

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    The Roster on Cyclones.com has Bell at 233, Mathis at 236, and Green at 239. That is excellent size at the LB position. Will any of those guys be in the mix for starting spots? None of them were listed on the 2 deeps, Bibbs and Garrin were the backups at the outside spots.

    It seems like Linebackers and D-Line are the most wide open spots, and the ones I'm most interested in now. I hope Bailey Johnson can continue to put on some weight and be a contributor. I thought he played well for an extremely undersized D-Lineman last year.

    It would be and he is still trying to. But right now I would give it less then a 20% chance of happening.

    Let's just hope they have at least half as much of Bowen's heart to go with that size

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    i dont think carper will be back. i have heard more than once from more than one source that his career is over. this includes a friend of mine who is good friends with him from hs.

    on another note, i couldnt be more pumped to see baysinger on the field. the dude is a monster!

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    I think both Osemele and Baysinger will push to take over some minutes immediately. Also don't be so quick to call Wallace Franklin a bust. My brother talked to Wayne Bolt a couple weeks ago and Bolt said Franklin provided the defense with the most problems in practice.

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    im also excited about randy kellman.

    anyone know anything about aj matthews? he is listed as 201# 6'3" DB with 4.7 speed. that is great size for a safety but 4.7? move to LB maybe?

    Re: Optimism for last years' redshirts

    It's going to be really exciting to see what these guys can do after a full year in the system. It's going to be great to see a team that can get physical with everybody else and have some speed on the team as well. I look for big things from the linebackers this year.

    Curtiz Mathis might be interesting as well. Kellman and Osemele are huge and hopefully make an impact somehow.
