They're Here!

The incoming freshmen have been added to the GoRedbirds roster. I expect most of them to redshirt but it's nice to have the extra depth at DB and the O-line. It's a strong class and it bodes very well for the future.

I now fully expect Tyree Horton to play this season. Not only is he still on the roster but he has gone from sharing #15 with Muhammad-Rogers to getting uniform #1 by myself. Some programs make a big deal about who gets the single digit numbers. I don't think ours does but I still consider it a positive sign.

We've got lots of big linebackers that can hit but Horton has a little extra mobility. He could be a difference-maker.

Well hold on Sportsfans they're not all here. Among this missing - no sign yet of Ryan Williams the RB transfer from Missouri, LB'er Raushaun Woods from Jefferson City and the biggest hit of all - Brace yourself -

NO BEEF! Kobe Buffalomeat is not listed. That won't pass without further details being provided.

Where's the beef ??? Not like you to panic TR ... but fear not my fellow carnivore, I believe our Kobe Buffalomeat was deemed to be a little too medium-rare and will be grey-shirting this fall, and enrolling in spring for spring ball. Needs a little more time on Spacks slow cooker. He just started playing football as a junior in HS or something like that.

A little refresher on Woods... Spack kicked him off the next day.

Side note - was hoping Buffalomeat would earn #69 but has already been distributed to a Freshman OL.

It's great to have the board back. Questions answered in a hurry.

Kobe is greyshirting and I did see that about Woods and had already conveniently forgotten - thanks!

I don't think so. I don't remember Himmelman being listed his greyshirt year but now he's playing with the 1's on the O-Line.

No roster spot for him. His clock won't start until spring semester. He'll then have 5 fall semesters to play 4.

And I think probable starting center Tyler Brown was a greyshirt too, now a junior.
