Tidbit: Expect a more aggressive approach with our DB's. They have been playing more man coverage instead of the dreaded "bend don't break Cover 3 and Cover 4". This will create more turnovers and more pressure
I sure will miss those 3rd and 5 when they line up 15yds off the receivers.

Heard reports that Boom Massie is looking good at the other DE position opposite Reggie Walker. I would expect him to be heavily in the rotation come conference play.

We have a player named Boom Massie?

If Green and Walker didn't qualify/stay, then that leaves us with zero freshman linebackers.

It's not a huge problem; we'll fill in the gaps in their class in a couple of years with JUCO guys if need be, but that's disappointing.

 Rudzik? But I'm hoping Green would only be 1 year placement. But hanging onto him through Juco is always dicey

If you'll be here on 9/2, I will work on getting the game from kstateo.tv and onto a screen somewhere we can PAK, ideally outside or close to outside water-ish things.  Gooch will be here, and I'm sure MIXED-NUTZ would be in if he's here.

i will be and i would like to attend.

I'm pretty sure Rudzik is a RS-FR.  But since Snyder seems to always redshirt a double-digit number of guys, I consider us to have five classes and not four.

So, our RS-FR LB class will be empty next year.  Snyder usually replaces guys that wash out in years 1-3 with JUCO players, so I'm guessing there's already a contingency to find a LB two years from now to fill the spot.

I mean it's not a really big deal.  Some SR walk-on will get a scholarship for his last year now.

The 2018 class is really, really small due to the small number of seniors, so a little attrition isn't a negative considering our recruiting hasn't sucked the last couple of years.

Who the hell is this linebacker fellow with the last name Walker? I honestly have no idea.

Anyone remember the 4* linebacker we snagged from Auburn(?) on signing day a couple years ago? Is he ever going to see the field?

Gross.  Back to regular-size boat or more likely, convincing the bar to let me stick a chromecast in their tv until kstateo goes offline halfway through the 1st quarter.

Answer my text about BIG 3 hoops next Sunday.

 Elijah Sullivan? Still on team as far as i know. I bet he sees some time early on while LB situation settles out. But no idea where he is in  pecking order among Kirby, Sizelove,Hughes,Patton.

Consistently under recruiting and failing to fill a position of need has worked out well for us in the past. So yeah no big deal if you want a LB group manned by a bunch of Will Davis type players.
