They haven't done what is necessary to have them removed.
I don't remember how it's gone in years past, but this is a bit concerning, no?
I want a fall Saturday in Ohio Stadium..
Since they started this I don't think all frosh have had black stripes removed by mid season. I could be wrong though.
Eli Apple didn't get his removed until Spring Practice the following season
I think that may have been a case of de-recruiting him, but still is a good thing to think about.
I attempting a site search to see when frosh lost stripes but only found a lot of posts from around camp times each year, nothing really noted once the season started.
Everything I have read - YTown's comment is SPOT ON.
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.

I think it personally has to deal with the depth ahead of them...So many good players ahead of you it's hard to shine when your a baby faced freshman
They don't all lose them Freshman year, either, and it's not just about earning PT. They lose them when they meet the requirements.
just wondering .............................. who holds the record for not removing THE black stripe?????? sophomore season or longer ???
I feel the need...........the need for speed !!!!!
Someone may have left theirs at the Grown N Sexy Lounge.

A NC raises expectations everywhere, including what the coaches expect out of the players. What won a NC last year isn't good enough this year, and that's the way it should be.

Exactly, Complacency is the enemy of success! each year should be harder to lose the stripe
I'd want to get my stripe removed before Sherman does...that would be embarrassing
