Submitted by icefins26 on August 2nd, 2012 at 8:03 PM
The updated roster with freshmen bios/updated numbers is officially viewable on the MGoBlue.com mobile site as well as the MGoBlue app. I checked on the main site earlier and there weren't any updates.

Just an FYI.

He might not be ready for playing time since he's about 25-30 pounds overweight.

As a true freshman, it's unlikely he has the strength he'll have over the next 2-3 years so being a big guy doesn't always do much when you're going up against guys stronger than you. Will Campbell was a similar size early in his career and got DESTROYED by Iowa's mature/senior offensive line.

You can play at that weight, especially in a limited role if you have superior strength like Terrence Cody of Alabama. I'm not sure we can expect a true freshman to have such strength. Nor do I think we can expect him to have the technique of a Mike Martin. So being a big body with neither doesn't do anything at this level.

Hopefully he can trim does and use his athleticism until the college level strength and technique come along. Because if you've got those two things at the NG position, it doesn't matter what weight you are except for stamina purposes. But if you show me a 337 kid who is strong and can stay low...I'll show you one hell of an interior DL. I may only be able to show you for a couple plays, but those two things make that position.

Section 4, Article 1 under "Rule 1" recommends 1-49 as the numbers for backs among offensive players, 50-59 for "snapper", 60-69 for guards, 70-79 for tackles and 80-99 for ends (per the diagram in the rulebook, of course). 

No such rules exist for defensive players. You simply cannot have players with the same number in on the same  down.

Ryan Glasgow a DL and not an OL? Was this always the plan or did I miss something?

Also, why do some sites post Glasgow Ryan instead of Ryan Glasgow?  I see the same for Graham too.

One of my favorite times of the offseason. Official heights and weights are put out. Just updated my roster on NCAA 13. The only thing I wish we could do is be able to type in the hometowns of the players. Because I'm sick of putting Palm Bay in for all the guys from Pahokee.

You have to use Belle Glade, it's 10-15 minutes from Pahokee.

Palm Bay isn't anywhere near Pahokee and Palm Beach, is well, a beach...so it's an hour away as well.
