Just wanted to throw in something here...We are all excited for UGIII and am so very proud of him, and wish him the best going forward.  When Coach Arth took over and brought in his coaching staff, one coach I really had hoped they kept was John Nemec, Player Personnel Coach.  I understand why Coach Arth changed personnel, no beef here, but here's a little known fact.  Ulysses ran into some housing issues when he went over for the Optional workouts, and Coach Nemec didn't hesitate to help this young man out, He got his family and their in-laws involved and made sure Ulysses was able to stay with some of John's family until he could get permanent residence, and his family "adopted" Ulysses as if he had known them forever.  And Ulysses in turn made a high quality impact on the kids involved.  Both John and UGIII are class acts, and it probably helped Gilbert emotionally and mentally to not have to deal with all the rig-a-ma-roll of finding housing during camps.   But UGIII is doing the rest.

Although Ulysees did not get a snap on defense his first game, he led his team with 23 special team snaps.

Chickillo and Vince Williams are out Sunday which means Ulysees should be #3 at MLB behind Barron and Bush if I'm remembering the roster correctly. Matjakevich might be a factor as well

Ulysees is a Tyler Matakevich injury away from getting some defensive stats. Tyler is ahead of Ulysees on the depth chart.

 

Chickillo’s injury will effect another MAC player, Adeniyi Olasunkanmi from Toledo. He will rotate in with Dupree and Watt on the outside.

Another angle of the above tackle

Rookie Class Contributing in All Three Phases.  "When it comes to special teams’ contributions, it would be hard not to mention sixth round pick Ulysees Gilbert III. The rookie linebacker has been a mainstay on the unit, playing over 84-percent of the team’s special teams’ snaps."
