    Jon Caspers note

    I know that there has been some talk on the board about Jon Caspers potentially playing this year instead of redshirting. After practice tonight, OL coach Bill Bleil told the media the plan is still for all newcomers on the line to redshirt the season, including Caspers. Thought I would pass this along.

    Re: Jon Caspers note

    I'm pretty sure that it would be awesome for him to have two years to play, stepping in for Alex Alvarez (opr wherever else) along the line!

    Re: Jon Caspers note

    In the minimal views we've had of him at practice, Caspers has looked pretty solid. Its a very good sign for the future that we can afford to redshirt him...its doubly nice that its also his preference.

    Re: Jon Caspers note

    If there is an injury, he could be brought in to play.

    There are at least 3 or 4 other guys available to fill in for an injury before you have to get to the point of burning redshirts.

    Yes, the possibilities might inlcude switching a reserve from another position inside--I recall that Lichtenberg spent time working at guard in the Spring--sliding reserves over from other spots (Tuftee?), or even letting a quality reserve step up, and moving KO or Lamaak play LG. I'm pretty sure that we'd have to have several injuries--or be hit very early in the season--for depth to be the issue that pulls a redshirt of Caspers....

    Of course, it would be much more certain if Haughton were still around. Where did he end up, BTW? Any chance he'll be back after a year?

    Re: Jon Caspers note

    Thanks Chris. Looks like from the pictures the staff was just working him in then.

    Does anyone know how Tuftee has looked so far at guard?

    Re: Jon Caspers note

    I was in Caspers hometown last week at a party. His dad has consistantly told everyone that Jon will redshirt. Can't be much clearer.

    Re: Jon Caspers note

    Didnt coach already say he requested to redshirt? If someone wants to RS, they let them, usually.
