No notable omissions from the roster it looks like. Good to see.

Couple things, watching video it showed Robbie Kelley in an arm sling, prospectus had 13 number changes, noticed a few starting defenders not on depth chart but listed on roster Alvin Davis & Brian Bell.  Dylan Meeks moved to D-Line, more depth on D-Line than last year.  Offensive formation used with TE, if i remember right they used the H formation on prospectus last year, maybe for Chapman to be listed as a starter

 

Like seeing football 🏈 news, gets the blood pumping

I noticed those two, plus Jordan George.

 

Excited to see LB James King on the roster.

A few number changes. I knew about #2 going to #12 but there are a few others I'm sure.

I heard #10 is going to #2.

I'm surprised to see Wolfley at T/E. Maybe this is just for Spring, but I thought we'd see him on the depth chart at middle linebacker or SAM.

*After viewing the prospectus depth chart, it looks like they moved Tyler Gilchrist from DB to WR. 

 

*In addition, it appears LB DeMarcus Lloyd got an extra year due to his injury last year.

My info reads padded practice (morning), but someone I trust used the word scrimmage. Maybe semantics.

@CDMac We look to be very young on the offensive side.  Almost all skill positions will be new & a couple spots on line.  What are your thoughts?

@CDMac what’s the kid telling you?

Haven't had time to talk a whole bunch with him yet (their schedules are rather full).

Will get a chance to download over spring break some but he's excited to be out there for sure.

 

He did say that they've got some new wrinkles (formations, etc.) so maybe we'll get a look at those in the Spring game.

 

I was hoping to get up to campus tomorrow so y'all send out the mojo for the snow to stop falling!I need a football fix :rock:

I was hoping to, but no.

 

Here's an article by GT. No details about the controlled scrimmage yesterday, but concerns restocking the OL.

 

UA Football: Zips begin competition to fill holes on offensive line

I'm probably just being picky, but I would really like to know the 4 players who will be competing at center and the 3 who will be competing for RT. Austin Sample, a walkon as far as I know (and listed at 200lbs), is apparently 1st string center based on the depth chart in the spring prospectus. I have a little trouble buying that.

the team is on break for the rest of the month, I should be at an early April practice, I'll do me best to find out. Those listed weights, sometimes, are not accurate. When asking about a player, coach Bowden amazes me when speaking about his weight. He'll say "Player X is listed at 230, but he's at about 244 to 246 right now." He seems to know every kids exact weight, and what they are listed at.

Appreciate it, Doc. Just seems like that would be a natural thing to include in an article and I wouldn't think that the coaches would want to conceal the names of players competing for positions. I also noticed on the depth chart that Bullard and Fazio are the top 2 listed at RT currently. IIRC, both are seniors who have played sparingly throughout their career. My ignorant opinion is that either one of them starting may not be a good sign. Then again, maybe one of them could put together a nice senior year.
