In re-reading an article on JH opening up all 110 practice spots for fall it occurs to me that a scholarship athlete would have to have 26 walk-on players pass them to be in danger of loosing their practice spot.
Can you think of that many guys currently on scholarship who, outside of medical reasons, have developed that little since they were awarded a scholarship to begin with?
If you find it distasteful to use names in your speculation, feel free to just name a position where we may have way too many good alternatives for a specific athlete to pass.
Title says most of it, but players can now play in four games in a year and not lose redshirt status. https://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/media-center/news/di-football-offer-more-participation-opportunities
Only 22. 12 are in the Big 10
BIG Schools: Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, MSU, OSU, NW, PSU, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Rutgers, Purdue, Nebraska.
Note the lack of SEC and ACC teams on this list.
Michigan's QB competition will be interesting. George will be a grad transfer and have 2 years of eligibility left.
...days until Alan Branch (DT 2004-2006) watches the current Maize and Blue DTs make those ugly blue and gold (and green?) rags as dirty as possible.
Nominee for being in some of the most famous UM game pictures!
Another day closer, Go Blue and To Hell With Notre Dame!
Single game tickets go on-sale for NW football games on Thursday, June 14, at 9 AM CDT. I know there are a lot of alums/fans in the Chicago-land area. It's always nice to have as many, if not more, fans in that stadium. If you've never been, Evanston is really nice and the pre-game atmosphere is great. Parking can be a little difficult so give yourself extra time and park remotely. Shuttle buses run constantly but you can also walk. Hope to see you there!

It's sad there's only 1 more year of him at Michigan.

From twitter polling, Ohio St fans rank the Michigan game #2 in the 2018 schedule. The #1 game? The Penn St. White Out Game in Happy Valley.
...days until Glen Steele (DE 1994-1997) sees Don Brown's dudes of 2018 stuff some Irish in South Bend!
Another coolest name nominee! Go Blue and To Hell With Notre Dame!
