    Twins post jogged my memory. It was Anthony Nelson. Hawk fans were saying Anthony Nelson was a lock. Who are you saying was better going into AJE's soph year? Nelson or AJE?

    You guys are screwed without him. You have nobody to play opposite of Golston

    Nelson had 30+ tackles and 7.5 sacks the previous year. So why would you pick Epenesa over him?

    He has an unhealthy obsession with him. He likes Epenesa more than I like Purdy and Purdy isn't just a specialist

    AJE played pretty sparingly as a true freshman. When he was out there, it was clear what a beast he was. Even with limited snaps he made B1G All-Freshman team. Pretty impressive.

    Lol soooo pretty much exactly what I said about McDonald. Who actually had better stats as a FR than Epenesa.

    Wasn't McDonald a starter and pretty much every down player? I know he played LB at the beginning of the season.

    I see why your team isn’t the most accurate now. You only watched 2 ISU games all year. During the UNI game they changed to Vance, Rose, Spears at LB and McDonald transitioned to his more comfortable pass rush specialist AJE role. Took him a few weeks to get back acclimated to the spot but really took off the second half of the year.

    Is being named an actual AA compared to the best players (P5) better than being an honorable mention AA for MAC teams? Yes, absolute being an actual AA is better

    No idea what you're trying to say there.

    As I told State, WM is really good and has loads of potential.

    Hes saying McDonald started a game or two at linebacker and then got shifted back to his natural Rush end position.

    Yeah, but I thought last year as a RS freshman he played, if not as an every down guy, on a majority of snaps. No?

    Nope, he was a rush specialist. Exactly what AJE was his sophomore year.

    He was literally only in on third down and long where they could just cut him loose. I’m 95% sure if it was 3rd and short, he wasn’t in

    Zach Petersen and Enyi were more of the “every down” DE’s with a few rotational guys getting some snaps (McDonald was one of them).

    I believe that was Sargent with the big fumble.

    He won’t win. Players who could win are guys like Xavier Simpson, Gregory Rosseau, Dylan Moses, Derek Stingley, Patrick Surtain Jr, Shaun Wade, etc. Eisworth is good but these guys are elite.
