Webb/Lattimore and Perry play a lot of snaps together as Fickell removes Schutt/Hale for a 3-3-5 nickel. Perry has to shadow someone, and I'd rather see Josh on a TE or RB than slot. 

Lee is likely a better option in pass coverage, but is the best blitzer on the team and better served there.

Really would like a safety for 16...injuries can't always be predicted, but starting 2015 with 10 CBs and 5 Ss was an interesting mix. Both DB verbals for 16 are slated for CB. 

Presuming Bell leaves, you're down to Powell, Hooker, Smith and Burrows in 2016. The latter two will be trying to return from major leg injuries, which is no picnic (see Pitt Brown, Dixon, James Clark, etc.).

Davis has a very bright future. I don't know about any summer injuries Auburn had at DB, but Davis got a few first half snaps in the season opener. He has progressed and outperformed other freshmen to the point where he starts at corner in their base package (AU runs nickel as their base).

He likely would've seen time here, but probably only on special teams. Davis doesn't have the body to play safety, where OSU has had so much attrition.

Green and Clark? I know Campbell is hurt and Dixon dinged (but in pads) so I'm surprised McLaurin can't see reps.

most everything looks good otherwise.

Comment 19 Oct 2015

Dean was hurt in late November and had already signed his scholarship papers. From the team's perspective, he was locked in. Further, given the timeline, it's likely doctors had no chance to examine Dean until he was already enrolled. At which point they immediately disqualified Dean. Not sure how OSU should've played it differently.

Falcon was apparently hurt in August and told the news a couple weeks ago.

Michigan has played less freshmen than OSU, though Grant Perry is seeing more time than Ward/EGW/Prince. 

USC is the school that plays a ton of freshmen, I believe 15 this far. Of course, they go six deep at RB with a trio of true freshmen there while EE/QBs shoulder the rushing load here.

Weber was on the travel roster and suited up last week. I anticipate he'll debut vs Maryland. Even though Meyer rarely uses them, we need a backup for next year. Maybe a starter if Samuel stays at receiver. I think Dunn and Ball can be written off at this point.

As for WR, Dixon/Clark/McLaurin barely see the field, I'd be shocked if Gibson/Hill get in. And yes, I know Urban's comments on Hill. He also said "we don't redshirt" and has proceeded to play a whopping three freshmen thus far. Campbell replaces Smith...expect 1/2/3/4/7/21. 

Meyer really doesn't rotate much at all. The two exceptions are WR/DL, but even those only go two-deep.

Rudd is the most Brownsiest loss ever. I think that kicked off a three-loss streak that all had absurd endings.

I was at Soldier Field in 2001 for this one...left when Gardocki punted up 21-7 at the 2 min warning, then this:

4th 0:28 Bears Marty Booker 9 yard pass from Shane Matthews (Paul Edinger kick) 2114

0:00 Bears James Allen 34 yard pass from Shane Matthews (Paul Edinger kick) 21 21

OT 12:10 Bears Mike Brown 16 yard interception return 21 27
