Nice work as always.

Heflin hurts of course. Bummer to see Gregory and Bonds go. LB might go from strength to weakness next year

That's a good looking list. Can't wait to see them hit the field.

I was wondering how they'd spread out all those safeties.

RE: 2020 football roster is up
81 Great Frickin job!

OLine looks thin, lacking experience. Brought in 4 college QBs .. pretty sure they will not burn Fletcher's eligibility. Need a WR to grow up and play like a big boy,, Howard have a good feel for him. Brought in a lot of skill bodies, looking for a couple of diamonds. DLine looks thin as well.
My gosh just said both lines look thin.... Long season ahead if you are not strong up-front.

Great job 81.

Wow, very young indeed. 55% of the roster is freshmen and only 27% are juniors/seniors. According to your numbers we have 120 players on the roster.

RE: 2020 football roster is up
Thanks for the kind words gents. Tracking the roster has been a hobby of mine for some time as most of you know. I'm always excited to see new names that appear and how much bigger the returning guys have gotten.

This is a young team and it will be a huge team in a couple of years. Coach Hammock clearly has a vision of a Big Ten sized roster that he's building toward. Really excited to see how this plays out.

If there has to be an interrupted year this is probably good timing for us since 2020 looks to be a developmental year with this roster. Better this year than 2021 or 22 when this group will be more mature and ready to contend. You have to feel for Ball State who has their best team in probably a decade and may only get to play five or six or zero games with them this year.

QB Rodney Thompson - transfer from Palomar CC

https://247sports.com/Player/Rodney-Thompson-90097/

https://palomar.prestosports.com/sports/...log&pos=rb

He was 259-for-429 passing (60.4%) for 2,835 yards with 25 TDs and 11 INTs. Had 105 carries for 343 yards rushing with 4 TDs and 2 lost fumbles.

His team wasn't very good, going 3-7 on the season.

Quote:QB Tom Vatter - transfer from College of DuPage

https://www.njcaa.org/sports/fball/2019-...e-template

Without looking too deep into it, he appears to have been a partial starter (?) the last two years at CoD. They had three QBs play last season, possibly related to injuries. His numbers weren't very good, going 36-for-84 passing (42.9%) for 567 yards with 4 TDs and 1 INT. They appear to have been a run-heavy offense.

Quote:QB Connor Neville - transfer from East Mississippi CC

https://www.emccathletics.com/sports/fba...ew=profile

He was 233-for-368 passing (63.3%) for 2,615 yards with 18 TDs and 12 INTs.

Were there some names we didn't know about (from this board) that joined the team?

Kobe Rios is intriguing. 6'6 300 lb 3 star athlete with offers from Maryland and Liberty.

My guess is he will be an easy plug and play.

Rios is a 3* with great size at a position of need. He is an Illinois native who may want to be a bit closer to home. This appears to be a great last minute addition to the class!

Question to ponder, what happens to 2021 recruits if no football season? Will there be scholarships available or will current players get another year

Here's a post I wrote on that subject a couple of days ago:

https://csnbbs.com/thread-902687-post-16...id16904663

The short answer is there's no good solution to that problem, which is why I believe they'll play a few games no matter what.
