    Default 2020 roster.

    I know its aways out and some may want to discuss the merits of this team vs looking ahead to next year and some will say it's to early to do so. But I was curious and looking over the roster. Assuming everyone comes back for next year I think we have reason to be excited.

    Defense we probably return the most depth and young talent at D line and secondary. A lot of new players made major contributions or were freshman. Unless they take a sophomore slump those positions should be well set after being a big question mark last off season. Line backers are taking a major loss in Rozeboom. Honesty the starters will be solid next year just depth is my only concern since previous recruiting classes hit the linebackers group hard.

    Offense was a mixed bag and a lot of injuries. So it's hard to gauge them if they were fully healthy. Qb. Assume its Gibbs to lose but not a lock. Heide proved a capable backup as much as some will disagree. He did really well imho. Running backs losing Daniel's will be a hit but the depth there should be able to handle it. Wr loses Anderson's who was just a steady contributor his whole time here. The jahnke twins will probably get more catches but have to work on the fumbling issue obviously as they both had them. Would love to see deyon Campbell get more touches but not in gimic plays. Tight end losses hart but really they group has talent but didnt really show what I think they. A. Do. Heinz after his injury of healthy will be good. Kunz needs to show the promise he did his freshman year. To be offense line is our question mark. Clark and greenway moving on hurt but genent back is a huge plus. The depth is a major issue and not sure the freshman or recruits can make a difference yet. TBD on their ability to contribute.

    We lost by a touch down to minn and ndsu and fg to usd and uni as we all remember so 4 games were more then winnable and the isur game was Heide 1 or 2nd game as starter I think and was probably our worst loss but at the time they were doing well. A few less fumbles and we win usd and uni part 2. Injuries happen so you have to over ome them. We relied on a lot of first year players both sides of the ball and think we have reason to be optimistic going into next year.

    Hereís the schedule. Home games are in caps. Having the bye after week 1 isnít ideal. Also, SDSU avoids Missouri State and Illinois State for the next 2 years. The Jacks will play NDSU, USD, UND, and UNI every year going forward. Last 2 home games donít look good for attendance.

    Oofda. That's a tough four game stretch leading up to Hobo Day.

    No doubt we should be an equally talented team next year and compete for another seed. Rozeboom will be a huge loss, but I really feel like LB will continue to be a position of strength with Backhaus, Seven, Brown, and Shafer back. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Kusler twins see significant playing time either. The secondary was initially a question mark and real worry for me going into the season, but they far exceeded my expectations. Does anyone know if Marshon Harris will be back next year? The DL will be really good again, I just hope to see the pass rush get home at a higher rate. Getting pressure wasn't really an issue. Was Krockett ever really healthy this year? Seems like he saw less snaps and was less impactful than his RFr year.

    On offense, Daniel and his leadership will be missed. Going to need someone to fill that short yardage role as well. Perhaps it will be freshman Isaiah Davis, who at 230 pounds, would currently be the only SDSU running back over 200 pounds. TE and WR we seem set at with good depth as well. Heard that Wandmaker may be transferring, but haven't seen confirmation anywhere. Offensive line will be a question mark for me, but we seem to have a nice mix of youth and experience. QB is obviously what most fans will be watching and talking about all offseason. At this point, IMO Gibbs will be a slight frontrunner as I believe he offers more potential to stretch the field not only with his arm, but his legs as well. What really interests me is if 2020 commit Mark Gronowski will be in the running at all. His tape is really good, has a big arm, moves well out of the pocket, and fast enough to be a threat with his legs. Wouldn't shock me to see one of the QB's transfer.

    Special teams, I have no idea who's going to take the kicking spot, but am just hoping for more consistency. Our coverage teams are some of the best in FCS and I was never nervous of allowing a big play like in years past.

    You'd have to think the ability to still redshirt Heide could also be factor in QB competition. I'm curious about Bauer as a WR and possible kick returner given track speed. I see OL as one of the biggest question marks as well.

    Offense will be solid again. Tight ends need to take a step forward, Kunz seemed to have regressed. I really want to see what Tucker Kraft can bring.

    Janke really needs to work on ball security or he shouldn't see the field.

    The offense will be solid again? The offense is the reason we are having this discussion now instead of the 2nd round of the playoffs.

    There is not enough to say they would have or will be solid, but a full season of Gibbs, Strong, Wilson, Heins & Genant that definitely helps.

    We are talking about the whole year, the offense was solid and scored points. Injuries were the main issue, plus turnover bug the last 4 weeks.
