I’m honestly not sure what this is asking? Gantz graduated. Usually, teams only have one kicker and punter.

Richardson’s kickoffs in Boca weren’t exactly inspiring.

Walker will be outstanding. Minimum All-Mac in the next 2 years. OLine? Nervous based on losing 3 and one being a pro, but we have some talent here.

I have to say I did not watch the Oline rotation as much this year. In years past, we always seemed to have 8 lineman that played and rotated in. They did not play equal but some got decent playing time.

I saw Ference and Richardson listed and just wondered if there is/need another. I thought that's why Gantz was brought in. Not exactly a genius when it comes to the current team makeup. Thanks.

I bet they’ll have another walk-on kicker and/or punter, but I wouldn’t expect much more than that

Yes; D1 -> D1 = Required to sit out (unless you're a graduate).

Seems to me that this would be a perfect situation to appeal to the NCAA. Doesn't seem fair that he wasn't receiving the financial benefit of being on scholarship but he still has to still out a year after transferring. He should be considered a true free agent.

He’s good to go!
Who cares. If that kid gets playing time we're screwed. Only guy I want to see less than shitders

The team health was good last year so you might consider that Carey's plan to keep the best players playing worked out. Plus I don't remember any player getting a serious injury in the "spring" game.

Does Hayden Sak have a shot at the NFL as a long snapper?

I thought Gantz had only last year remaining. His college ball is over.

Thanks the details on the new guys. Seems like some snuck on the team with little fanfare or announcements.

He sucked last year. Cost us a couple times. No NFL for him.

Why so excited about a former walkon with little recruitment stars or experience? Not like Kelly Bryant just transferred to NIU.

I say show up for the spring practices and decide for yourself then.

Did they have an actual spring game last year? I had the impression they really didn't. And I agree that I don't remember any serious injuries in the spring game so I wondered why Carey stopped having it.
