    My main concerns are WR, LB depth, and the lack of experience behind PSJ. Now, I think the transfer RB and some of the young back will probably help, but its an unknown. LB is concerning, bit we have always had about e average to outstanding backer play, so I have faith they will step up. Both OL and DL should be in good shape, which will go a long ways in helping the aforementioned areas out.

    With QB, I dont know how to feel. Obviously, if Gibbs is ready to go, I feel like he's our best bet, unless one of the other two clearly overtake him. But from what I'm hearing and seeing, it seems like he may not be ready to go. And even if he is, how likely is it that he reinjures himself. Its been almost a year and half since the NDSU game. Any injury that is still giving him problems isn't likely to not be a factor in his career going forward. Grownoski seems to have shown great promise already. I have a feeling that whoever finishes the spring season at QB is likely to be the QB1 going forward.

    I really wish we didn't have to start off with UNI, although their roster is more tame due to transfers than it once appeared. That's a tough game for any of our qbs to start with. Gibbs was (and is) still a relatively inexperienced player, so I wouldn't feel great about any of them in that game.

    If we can get through the first two weeks at 2-0, I like our chances of some qb progress in weeks 3, 4, and 5 before playing the Redbirds at home and finishing the season at NDSU and home vs the yotes.

    Jack Domandle and Preston Tetzlaff opting out. LB room depth is a concern.
    I hadn't heard these. Domandle is not surprising but Tetzlaff is unexpected.

    Gone for good I believe. From my conversations, I think they would welcome him back if he chose to come back.

    Answering my own question- just saw in Zimmer's article that Seven had to give up football due to COVID complications. Sad that even very healthy young people can have lasting issues.

    I think so.
    Campbell, Dailey, or Leighton for the slot role. May see more 12 personnel though as you reference later. Sullivan and Cole will be valuable in a year or two
    PS, Jordan Meachum, and Isaiah Davis will handle a majority of the carries. I think Jefferson Lee could be okay if called upon. He runs hard but is small.
    Seven is a major one. Another thing to note is that Brady Sorenson is opting out of the spring season.
    Heins, Kunz, and Kraft will be great. I expect Skyler Cavanaugh and Mike Morgan will likely function as the h-back. The traditional Fullback is going away with the graduation of Sellers.

    Anyone hearing anything from the first few practices?
    • Does Gronowski have a legitimate shot at starting at QB?
    • I haven't Gibbs in any of the photos or videos, may be just coincidence??
    • Who is stepping up to fill Cade's role? Campbell/Sullivan/Bauer/Dailey/Cole?
    • RB room looks pretty thin behind PS. The grad transfer looking good?
    • Any other departures we are missing? Looks like Seven Wilson is no longer on the roster.
    • Hopefully Heins is fully healthy, we need a TE threat in the passing game.

    The new tight ends coach needs to get Tucker Kraft going, quite a bit more upside to his game than Heins. Would be great to have both in 12 personnel.
    Has that really been figured out yet? Haven't seen anything official one way or the other.

    Looks like Gandy had a decent season, although have a DB as leading tackler could suggest DL and LBs weren't pressuring QBs much.

    Really good write up on Cade Johnson in The Athletic. Behind a paywall, but they usually have a free trial available. Quote from his dad on him transferring as well.

    ”I’m not gonna say there were not inquiries about Cade,” Clester Johnson says, “But at the end of the day, he’s gotten noticed there (at South Dakota State), and we’re seeing guys get drafted from all over. If you’ve got skill, they’re gonna find you. We know they’re gonna get Cade the ball and he’s gonna get every opportunity to shine and he’s gonna try to win a national championship with that team.”

    So in private life Evans life style was less than perfect. IMO I thought he was a very good football player .and am disappointed to read this in your post. Enough said,
