We don't without an official confirmation. It's all speculation at the end of the day.

RE: 2017 FB Roster Notes
Robert Branch, a Jr. Safety has been removed from the roster. He saw limited action last season.

Tripp Weaver has been given the title of Recruiting Coordinator in addition to being the CB coach. Dale Steele (also the Director of FB Administration) held the title last season.

RE: 2017 FB Roster Notes
Well with Branch gone, that means two 3 star guys from the 2015 recruiting class are now gone. Jordan Brooks was the other to leave.

247? Seems a lot of their 3 star are Rivals 2 star. Branch think was the more highly touted. Rivals had him a 3 star & Brooks a 2.

According to Brooks's bio, he was a 3 star ESPN recruit. SCOUT had him at 3 stars as well: http://www.espn.com/college-sports/footb...dan-brooks

All water under the bridge now. They were recruited by a suspect defensive coaching staff . I trust Mike Houston.

It was less speculative when he posted on social media showing he was in Tenn when the team was in Hburg practicing for the NC game.

Kind of ironic that this pic is on the main JMU sports web page:

Front and center is Robert Branch

I noticed that as well. Maybe he's working his way to get back on the team?

He was listed on the roster when that event happened. Was just taken off a day or two ago.

Ryan Etheridge (Sr. DL) has been added to the roster. Hunter's twin brother. He was previously on the team but was not on the final 2016 roster. He was only in one game last year after seeing more action as a Fr. and So., mainly on special teams.

RE: 2017 FB Roster Notes
Some minor roster adjustments leading up to Spring Practice. No one on the roster now shows their position as KAT. Probably just a housekeeping measure until it's decided who goes where.

D'Angelo Amos (rFr) position changed from CB to S.
Robert Carter Jr. (rJr) position changed from CB to S.
Bryce Maginley (So) position changed from S to LB.
David Ezeagwu (Sr) position changed from LB to DL.
Andrew Ankrah (rSr) position changed from KAT to DL.
Julian Freeze (Fr) position changed from KAT to LB.
Keshaun Moore (Fr) position changed from KAT to LB.
Isaac Ukwu (Fr) position changed from KAT to LB.

Marcus Marshall (Jr RB) assigned #29. Wore #34 at GT.
Gus Little (rSo LB) assigned #31. Wore #49 at UM.
Joe Fishpaw (rFr OL) assigned #53 Wore #71 at Campbell.
Marcus Hawkins (Fr DL) assigned #52. Wore #10 in HS.

Gary Wortham (Gr DL) removed from the roster.

I was a freshman same time as Warren. We really did have color photography in the mid 80s, but sadly this was the only pic I could find of him.

We are about the same age (I was a college freshman in '83). We also had 8-track tapes. I don't think you've lived unless you've had to experience an 8-track tape.

But, I digress. :>)

Especially painful were the losses to Coastal Carolina on a miracle catch and to UMass in the infamous Mud swamp game.

THIS is why I hated MM's "all defense and just enough offense to win" approach. You let everyone hang around with a 10-7 score and if the other team gets a lucky bounce late in the game, you're SOL. Just keep at 'em, and if you do it right, you're up 34-14 by the 4th.

One of those 4 losses in 05' was @ UMASS was 10-7 in that raining mud fest (had been raining most of the week up there. I think Umass installed turf the next season). The offense in 05' avg 35 ppg, and about 38 ppg in the other 10 games outside the UMass mud fest. I don't know what the problem was in 05', but it wasn't ""all defense and just enough offense to win" approach".
