Was just about to post.  Smart money would have the line at Maize -3, but I think the Blue team wins a close one!

For the first time ever, I'm actually going to watch the spring game. I'm dying for real football, though, especially now that we have a good coaching staff.


April 1st, 2015 at 5:22 PM ^

"Linebackers Mike McCray, James Ross III and Noah Furbush, running back Drake Johnson (ACL tear), defensive ends Taco Charlton and Mario Ojemudia, offensive lineman Chris Fox, defensive tackles Ondre Pipkins and Matt Godin, tight end Khalid Hill (ACL) and fullback Sione Houma are the among the notables left off the teams."

Interesting split of the QBs. Looks like team blue will have snaps split between Morris and Speight, but with Malzone as the only other scholarship QB on Maize, does that mean we'll be seeing lots of him? I hope so, I really want to see how the freshman can perform against college players, even if it is just a spring game scrimage.

Do people actually think Malzone has a chance to be the starter this season? Even after seeing all of the wobbily off-target passes in the practice videos?

Hate to break this to you, but Malzone is being used as motivation for the others and will almost certainly redshirt this season. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being 4th on the depth chart in the Fall.

Four ten minutes quarters -- are they running clock or are they playing with normal clock rules?  I assume that they are running clock but that seems like it would make the game awfullly short. 


April 1st, 2015 at 3:42 PM ^

I'm going to go Maize team for the win. They have all of the receivers except Darboh and Dukes. Although the Blue team has both Butt and Bunting. Everything else looks pretty evenly matched. 


April 1st, 2015 at 3:42 PM ^


Peppers will defend against two of the three top QBs and Isaacs. Maize Team appears somewhat better on O line by my calculations and despite having only one top QB the Maize will likely end up with the most points.

Blue starters: 

  • QB: Morris
  • RB: Isaac
  • FB: Kerridge
  • TE: Butt
  • WR: Darboh, Harris
  • OL: Bushel-Beatty, Tuley-Tillman, Glasgow, Dawson, Braden
  • DL: Glasgow, Wormley, Henry, Garrett Miller?
  • LB: Morgan, Jenkins-Stone, Gant?
  • CB: Countess, Lewis
  • S: Thomas, Francois Montbrun? (no clue on the other safety but that's a dope name)


Maize starters:

  • QB: Malzone
  • RB: Smith
  • FB: Pallante/who knows (please be Poggi playing both ways)
  • TE: Williams
  • WR: Cole, Chesson
  • OL: Cole, Magnuson, Kalis, Kugler, Bars
  • DL: Hurst, Mone, Strobel, Marshall
  • LB: Bolden, Gedeon, Wangler?
  • CB: Stribling, Pearson?
  • S: Peppers, Hill

Didn't see James Ross on there at all so I'm guessing injury. Harris is listed as healthy to play.


April 1st, 2015 at 3:55 PM ^

My guess would be Malzone is #1 QB right now and Ty Issac is the #1 RB based on the teams. I would expect whoever didn't take the #1 overall guy at a position in the coaches' minds would take #2 and #3 to compensate.

The draft order would've been really nice to see...

I'm guessing that Pipkins, Fox, Ross, Taco and others are left off due to injury? I hadn't heard of injuries to Ross, and also thought Pee Wee was playing this spring as well. Really surprised about Ross given Durkins recent praise of his spring in the recent interview. Any info on these guys or others left off the rosters?


April 1st, 2015 at 3:58 PM ^

Hoping Isaac can play--really intrigued by his skillset/size/impact--but if injuries hold him out of the spring game, the blue team is in an interesting position as far as RBs are concerned


April 1st, 2015 at 4:05 PM ^

So if Ross, Taco, etc. are left off because of injuries, what does that say about Drake Harris?

He is listed there. But he is supposed to have a potential season ending injury? 

These other have minor injuries and they arent listed at all? What sense does that make?
