The 2 deep consists of 44 players + kickers. If you can't give a scholly to one of your 44 best when you have 85 to give, something's wrong.
Just have to agree to disagree here. We have a few kids highly rated in skill positions that could see more time than tim next year. Paul davis saw more time than him this year. And now we have 3 spots open making it more likely to land one of them (like an autry or rogers)
Secondly we have jordan on the team now who may be the back up in 2015. Paul doesnt have a good track record of taking a walkon off ship. So now tim is 3rd string a walkon will never see the field and still on ship. It is a legit scenario.
Again just have to agree to disagree.
How many of the 14 kids that we signed in the 2013 class saw any time last year? Heck, how many of the kids from 2012 class saw time last year?
How many of the 2014 class that we're going to sign will play?
I'll go ahead and predict this, Byerly will see more time than 50% of the guys from the 2013 and 2014 class next season.
I understand your thought that you go with future potential over someone who probably will be a backup his entire career, but Byerly will be GT's most important backup in 2014. That to me is worth a scholarship.
Not a lot of coaching staffs plan for the early departure of their starting QB.
Right off the top of my head, Paul Davis and Butker from 2013 played a lot. The rest, I believe, were redshirted.
From 12, Gotsis played right away, so did Autry. Andrews, Stargel, Hankins, Lynn Griffin, Summers, JT, DJ White and Chase Roberts all had varying degrees of PT this year. Burden would have but got hurt.
PJ likes redshirting. So I expect the rest of the 12 class of signees to push for more PT this year.
Does Byerly receive Hope?
That makes no sense whatsoever. Somebody please fill in the blanks for me.This is interesting...
