He is in one of those tough spots.

As I read it: He redshirted in 2018 and didn't play in 2019. If he has to sit out a season...

He is an excellent student (academic All-Big Ten) so he wouldn't go JUCO to play a year.

If I'm not mistaken, Phelps and Eddington were both coming back as medical redshirts. Now both are off the roster. Did something go wrong in the process?

Maybe the NCAA denied the exemption

Ty Eddington is grad transferring to Youngstown State per his twitter.

That's interesting.

Youngstown State? Yikes. I think they are FCS. Hoping this has something to do with being closer to family maybe. If it was because of competition, then so be it and good luck to the man.

Mike Van Hoeven 6'5 305 Sr.
Jake Donnellon 6'5 300 Sr.
Michael Smith Jr. 5'3 300 Sr.
Richard Bates, Jr. 6'3 290 R-Jr.
Zack Kadri 6'4 250 R-Jr.
Sidy Sow 6'5 325 Jr.
Brian Dooley 6'7 280 So
Marcellus Johnson 6'4 290 So.
Dimitri Douglass 6'4 300 So.
Alex Howie 6'4 305 So.
Jimi McAdams IV 6'5 315 R-Fr
William Racely 6'4 300 R-Fr
Broderick Jordan 6'3 290 R-Fr

walk ons
Zack Conti 6'6 300 R-Fr
Rafe Reyes 6'2 270 So
Lucas Tesznar 6'5 300 R-Fr.

Newcomers:

PJ Ross 6'4 255 Fr.
Coleon Smith 6'6 320 Fr.
Jason Eaton 6'7 350 Fr.

walkons

Daniel Greene 6'4 320 Fr
Evan Egan 6'8 345 Fr.

Smith and Eaton may be talented enough for one of them to start but more likely redshirted. We are seeing a talent assembly line where talented frosh are redshirted and then progress.

Really like this group in 2020. Much improved. With a new QB this year the reliance on an Oline will be big to keep him upright and give time. This looks like the most depth we have had in a while. Van Hoeven and Donnelon will be great and I really like Howie and Raceley coming up. Dooley could end up being a 4 year starter when all is done and if he packs on 15lbs more he could get pro looks. Super excited to see how these guys compete and who comes out starting.

Dooley's been working hard on the weights and the diet. Talked to him this morning and he's weighing in at 303. Hasn't slowed down any.

Evan Egan is leaving the program.

Hopefully he took a scholarship somewhere.

It's my understanding he wants to focus on his studies and has decided not to play college ball.

I went through a similar situation with my oldest son. He had the opportunity to play college ball and halfway through his senior year in high school made the decision to focus on schooling rather than play ball. He's entering his third year of law school now.

I have to respect a young man who can make a decision like that, especially when other's expectations for him (especially parents') might be completely different.

A season preview...

https://collegefootballnews.com/2020/07/...gan-eagles

FYI, when you get to the last page they have an over/under for the win total but they don't actually make a prediction. However, this site also put out early bowl projections and they had us in a bowl so that should give you a clue as to what they think.

Hell yes!

Indeed.

I would add there are two primary questions:
1). Is the athletic scholarship a means to an end? e.g., Getting a college education where it might have been difficult or impossible without the financial assistance?

2). Playing college FB with two parts: 1). Is playing football a 'labor of love' which the player really wants to do? 2). Does he have the ability level to see significant PT on the field?

For many scholarship athletes the answer to both questions (#1 and 2) is yes.

How many families really have say 150 - 200K sitting around for their son to have to go off to college without financial assistance?

And secondly, to most (almost all) players with significant skills playing FB is their 'hobby', their 'life', etc.

They don't play CFB to get a scholarship, they play CFB because they love the game.
