    Anyone else go to the GDMCC luncheon today? Rhoads was the guest speaker.

    Coach's speech was short and sweet but man does he talk fast. He got a lot said in a short amount of time. His dad and brother were in attendance I think. Says the team had a good week of practice and is fully prepared for Baylor both offensively and defensively. Need to execute. We can expect more blitzes this week and we call our version of the wildcat formation the "clone".

    Talked about the need of each defensive lineman to get to the edge of the offensive lineman across from them. Need to get off their blocks. Lots of teaching going on with every player on the team.

    We will have 26 scholarships to give out and currently have only 74 scholarship players on this years team. Next year we should be close to the 85 allowed.

    That is correct and Rhoads said we have close to 45 walk-ons.

    It surprises me how ISU always seems to sign 24-26 guys but never has a full team. I suppose the coaching changes cause a lot of guys to leave for other places. 11 short, that is a whole offensive or defensive team. Lets add the 11 on defense.

    Is there a limit (maybe 25) that can be added each year on scholarship?

    Yes, there is a limit - prevents a coach from 'running' players like one of our former BB coaches did.
