Wednesday Open Recruiting Thread: Christmas Eve Edition

I don't expect much participation today.  I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas Eve.  For those who don't celebrate, enjoy your day off. 

Today's post is about roster size and makeup.  Feel free to chime in any rumors, thoughts, or wishes you have.

So, I assume that we will lose 5 scholarships in 2009, and 5 in 2010.

For those who know:  are these cumulative?  For instance, will we be reduced to 80 in 2009 and 75 in 2010?  Or is it 80 for both years? 

Another question... do these reductions come off our max incoming class (reducing 25 to 20), or do they come off the total (85 to 80)?

I think they come off the 85 and are NOT cumulative.

With that in mind, here is what I think our roster should look like, given our limits:

 

QB 4
RB 5
WR 10
TE 7
OT 6
OG 4
C 2
OG/C 3
DE 6
DT 7
DE/OLB "Edge" 1
OLB 6
MLB 3
CB 9
S 5
"DB" 2
80
  • This assumes we continue to phase out the fullback.  Remind me to find the article on how progressive teams are eliminating the fullback and employing more three TE sets
  • We don't need to give scholarships to kickers or punters for two years.  Walk-ons can do the job.  Plenty of kids play soccer.

So, your thoughts?  Rumors?  Hopes?
