    Confused by Depth chart

    Ok, I am a little confused. Why is Beau Blankenship number 2 on the depth chart, but never plays?

    And Jeremiah Schwartz is 3 on the chart and gets all the carries after Robinson..


    I guess I dont care that much except the depth chart should be followed or what is the point of it? Show Schwartz as 2 if he really is number 2 in games...

    Any other thoughts?

    Re: Confused by Depth chart

    Beau is probably #2, but just has been slowed by injury.

    Just shows you how little depth charts mean.

    Here is the depth chart released today. Beau may be number 2 based on practice...

    Re: Confused by Depth chart

    I dont get it, Beau practices better, yet doesn't get any carries? It doesn't add up unless it is due to injury... Which if that is the case, he should be taken off the depth chart...

    So then give Schwartz some respect and put him at number 2...

    Most of the time, besides QB, depth chart in college football does not mean SQUAT! All politics!

    Not even political the sports info guy asks the head coach to update the depth chart for the media the coach says ok, forgets about it. The next day the sports info guy asks any changes on the depth chart the head coach says nope and they drive on.

    Re: Confused by Depth chart

    This thread is full of fail.

    Seriously, a depth chart, take it with a grain of salt. If you're concerned about "respect" being given to a player I am pretty sure they only care about one stat and it starts with W.

    Re: Confused by Depth chart

    He was dinged up the end of last week, but nothing serious.... It's more likely to see guys dinged up as the season goes on seeing as we don't have a wk off for recovery

    Re: Confused by Depth chart

    Rhoads has said a number of times that outside of Arob, Schwartz is our most complete running back, however, he has always gone on to say that Beau and even Bo may go in if Arob gets hurt because Schwartz lacks the explosiveness we need with this offense.

    Re: Confused by Depth chart

    Has Beau played a snap this year? If not, could Rhoads be trying to hold him out for a redshirt if possible?

    i believe he took a couple snaps in a game earlier this year and he is also on special teams


    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Im going to approach all 12 games this way: Were going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, were going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12
