Green played on special teams.  Probably had to fill in since so many DBs were out with injuries.

I don’t consider him a miss.  He was going to be a tough pull once the situation changed at Purdue.

“Miss” suggests we didn’t offer or gave him an undesirable offer (offered him at LB). He’s just a guy who we tried really hard but he chose to go elsewhere.

Now THIS was a miss. I wonder if he's admitted his wrong yet.

Yeah. We didn’t miss on him, we’re missing out on him.

I think the name that surprises me the most on that list is Moore. I knew he was good athlete but didn’t really dominate at Yoakum and I thought we had sufficient WR numbers that he would redshirt. Kid has been a pleasant surprise

Kinda sucks to have already burned Ossai's shirt and not noticing him in any game. Edit: Cook, too. Can only remember him for a few snaps against Tulsa.

Cook and Ossai have played every game. The staff clearly did not care about redshirting them from the get-go.

If we want to be technical about it, nobody's redshirt has been burned yet because only 4 games have been played.

Cook played a lot and well while Davis was sidelined against USC. He was the first cb off the bench. He’s going to keep getting snaps that matter as the year progresses, I imagine.

This is 2017, but Eno Benjamin ran for 312 yards and 3 tds yesterday for ASU.

That kid REALLY wanted to be a Longhorn, I wish we would’ve taken him.Took Toniel Carter and Daniel Young instead.

Carter is a prime transfer candidate now, and didn’t really want to be here in the first place.

To be fair, Oregon State is almost Rutgers bad.

How is Ayodele Adeoye doing? I know he was injured but I just haven’t noticed him that much. 

You haven't noticed him much because he has been injured. We'll see given how thin we are at LB whether the staff can keep a redshirt on him as he's recovered.

I knew he was injured but thought he was healthy now. Is he wheeler or Johnson’s backup?

I see him as a Mac but I'm sure he's cross-trained at all the LB positions.

He might be healthy but he's missed out on valuable training camp reps, probably not ready for live action outside special teams.

Did the Aggies just pay to have the numbers say they are the top recruiting class this cycle? Because there’s NO WAY they just jumped up. They were 5th.

i wonder if ron tatum regrets his decision. 

I'd say Ronnie Perkins over Tatum.  And Deshaun White.  Picking Tim Kisch over Orlando is a laugher.

You're both assuming it wasn't Burt's decision.

If the staff is allowing him to choose, it means they're not all that concerned about keeping him as CJ and LJH insurance.

I think Burt is a good kid, but he's not one of Herman's guys and he's no longer an impact player. I'm betting Herman would prefer the extra schollie.

Why not just red shirt Burt at this point, in case CJ and LJH decide to jet?

Burt runs track. Harder to RS a 2 sport athlete,  id think.
