Fall Practice Updates

Post by Roy McAvoy » September 29th, 2020, 8:20 am

Here's a few solid articles recently written about fall camp and position battles. Please at least click on the links.

https://www.deseret.com/sports/2020/9/2 ... -fall-camp

A few highlights:
- Gary feels very good about the RB position and likes what he sees (I assume we're going to be running the ball A LOT).
- Gary feels good about the scheme and position switches on defense.
- Gary's worried about the DL and it's a big question mark.

Gary is is a mini-Whittingham. He wants a reliable running game. His strategy requires a good foundation upfront on both sides of the ball.

Was it Gary who publically called out the DL in advance of the 2012 season? IIRC they ended up being a very good group. Could be a bit of a head game here.

The Herald Journal article says all scrimmages and practices are closed. Hopefully we still get some inside info.

On the front page of USU fans there is a highlight of a goal line siutation. The QB is actually under center which we have not seen much of that in the recent past.

It's pretty tight lipped right now. It's hard to get a good look at things when I can't get in.

I can add that Logan Lee has chosen not to return for this fall and has moved on from football.

I wonder when they'll update the roster online. Or release a prospectus. 22, do you think we'll have a smaller roster this season between opt outs and some guys moving on with life?

Caden may hurt a little.

Never understood why Logan moved to TE.

I hadn't noticed the update. Although Compton is still on so maybe it's a work in progress or a change of heart. Looks like there's 105 guys on there now, so maybe it is the final roster.

I always look forward to the prospectus.

I just had these names confirmed to me but it looks like you beat me to it. Thanks for posting that my Aggie brother! Sione Lasike and Dustin Mathews also chose not to return.

I'm going to give a depth chart a shot and release it in the next 24 hours.

Does this seem like an unusually high number of exits?

Under the circumstances no. Many of these guys were looking at little to no playing time and many of them had work opportunities that were too good to pass up.

Now that there is a season, why are players choosing to move on? Are they afraid of playing because of Covid, did they not stay in shape, or were they told that they wouldn't be kept for the extra year so they had already made plans? I am fine with whatever reason they have, but it seems odd that they would move on since we are having a season during the time that they would normally be playing anyways.

In this video there's a #1 playing safety. There's no #1 on the roster though. Is it just Bond or Pollard with a different #? Based off the players on the video it is the starters out there.

Well, I hate to bring this up but I think we all know why Ty Shaw moved on.

I'm going to venture a guess and say CJ Pollard.

Be prepared for a ton of 12, 21 packages on offense. I bet we even run some 22 ..

12 = 1 running back, 2 tight ends
21 = 2 running backs 1 tight end
22 = 2 running backs 2 tight ends

I've been saying for nearly 10 months now to expect an offensive system VERY similar to what we ran during the 2012 11-2 season.

Thanks for the explanation. It will certainly look different then what we have seen the past few years. As long as the offense is successful and we win games I don't care what offense we run.

Honestly, as much fun as the fast tempo, spread offense, or whatever Yost calls it was.....
The pain of the AFA game last year where we went 3 and out in 16 seconds 10 times, and they ran all over our tired out defense...is something I never want to revisit again.

Sounds similar to what Wyoming has been doing under Bohl.
