Agree. Moving him to Mike means he's able to crash every play and coordinators can't plan to the other side to avoid him.
Seems like the coaches may need to think about Peppers in the same way... He's a big hitting CB who can play NB or SS. Start him at SS and he can't be avoided. Then Lewis Taylor and Countess are your starting CBs/NB.

If we have 4 starting CBs and a huge ? at SS then why isn't Peppers at SS (which he's more than capable of playing) and getting Lewis Taylor and Countess on the field together.

I root for my team to win. I never root for any person to fail off the field to help my team get that win. That's just petty.

But never forget that these are grown men and they are capable of making the right decision in life. I never hope for individual failure, however, if York or these ND players fail to make the right decisions then they face the consquences. And how that shapes their team is also a consequence.
Rooting for failure? No. Acknowledging the effects of one's failure? Just factual observation.

It's not a "OMG!!! Only Start 5-stars" thing. It's the expectation that a true freshman who started a hand-full of games will improve in his Sophomore year, combined, with a returning starter who will not be starting due to a suspension. It's an "opportunity to prove yourself" thing.
So, even if Glasgow is the No. 1 guard after fall camp... he's won't start on 8/30. He's watching Bosch and Kalis start and if they play well, he may be the No. 3 option at guard.
But as others are noting.. having a Soph., RSoph, and RJr. all worthy of staring at Guard would be a great problem to have.
