    I don't think one is really necessary. If a guy is healthy and not playing as a Sophomore then that's really not a good sign (obviously). These guys are more likely to enter the portal than be contributors here in the future. Avery participated in the game against Akron. He's just 7th in the...

    Pregame: Illinois at UConn, Saturday, September 7th, 2:30pm CT, CBSSN

    UConn is really struggling right now. A number of their fans think that the school could shut the program down in five years. UConn is leaving the AAC and joining the Big East which means that the football team is going to become Independent next year. They gave up over 50 points a game last...

    Illinois 42, Akron 3 POSTGAME

    I don't care about the final score as much the fact that we controlled the LOS. This is something that I expected to see in the first two games last year which didn't really happen. Getting 12 TFLs and 6 Sacks is big. Betiku looks like a monster and Eifler looked very good as well. After...

    Vaughn would have graduated last year. He's eligible this year because he had to sit out a year after transferring.

    Thanks for the information. I was wondering about this. I know we made this move with Brandon Jones earlier this Summer but didn't know if we'd do the same thing with Bobby. Yeah, it's really good. It gets kind of lost in a thread like this.

    Safety is far more concerning to me. We have 7 scholarship players at CB right now so that is a good number to have assuming that everyone is healthy. We lose none of them next year as long as no one transfers out or declares for the draft (Hobbs). I've actually heard good things about...

    AJ was a blueshirt who was counted against the Class of 2019. This is how blueshirts are used. We were at the class limit of 25 for the Class of 2018 which is why we added Stampley and Bush as blueshirts. Caleb Griffin was also a blueshirt. These guys were not allowed to participate in team...

    Blueshirts help you get around the class limit of 25 which won't be an issue for the Class of 2020. This doesn't help us get around the roster limit of 85.

    That would put us over the scholarship limit unless someone else transfers out. Giving Tabel the scholarship yesterday indicates to me that the staff is no longer looking for transfers but I have no inside information here.

    We have 85 scholarship players so we can't take anymore transfers at the moment. We actually only have 4 scholarships left for the Class of 2020. There will obviously be more attrition but we only have 12 Seniors so I can see why the staff is so picky about adding players to this class.
