So is Noah Larson just red-shirting at this point?  Left off the injury report again.

Good question.  I don't recall him ever being listed on depth chart either. Just reported a couple times he was practicing with first team in fall camp before he got hurt.  Anyone have any info on Larson?

What's everyone's thoughts on this? I have mixed feelings, I've been in the camp that if he can't go against USD, then RS him. After that debacle though, I'm switching my thought process a little and my decision would rest on 2 things (1) If they beat Montana State this weekend and he would be 100% against Davis (2) Would Rodgers be able to return sometime this year.

We are all aware how big of trouble they are at the ILB position, but if they can't beat Montana State, then I'd say it wouldn't be worth it to burn his RS, when they most likely aren't making the playoffs anyway.

I believe that's the plan with him.

If we have 3 loses or less and he is 100% healthy I think he needs to play.  If nothing else it would be nice for him to get 1/2 season under his belt before next season.  We can worry about 4 year from now at that time.  Hopefully we have much better depth at LB.

Part of the decision for me would be if Schmidt feels like it is a big enough upgrade from Rastas/Neverman/Richman and/or gives him more flexibility to move Disterhaupt around a little bit.   If Schmidt feels like that, then there is a lot of season left and then there is also still a redshirt left in case there would be an injury in the future.

Drew  Greeley 6'3 250 and Brandon Dranka 6'2 240 are seniors. Your last shot at the playoffs. Could one of these guys be the answer to the lack of bulk at the inside linebacker position? Worked out for Kyle Enanual X Bison.

It's not that simple. Physically yes, they are large enough and that size would be beneficial. However, the ILB has all sorts of reads, adjustments, and sometimes plain old instincts that are necessary to be successful.

It seldom works to move backwards with positions. Moving forward from safety to LB means you go from being a slow safety to a fast LB instead of a quick DL to a slow LB.

I might need to take back the bet where I said I'd bet my left nut we'd score more than 10 points, so we are down three OL today, not good.  Hope we can still get some push and open a few holes.

haven't heard what kind of injury or to what extent they will miss but add: 

OT- stockwell- possibly the best OL and has many starts under his belt. 

CB- holm- fastest guy on the team and was coming on strong in the coverage dept   

*this has been just a brutal year that has targeted certain positions. How many guys are left in the next man up bullpen!? 

New additions: 

S- Cole- sen-  good lord the football gods hate UND this year 

fiedler- TE- starting TE

Don't know the extent of the Reyes injury, but UNDfootball360 seemed to think Reyes was being held out yesterday for precautionary reasons. We'll see this week.

Pretty sure that number doesn't include the back-up MLB's who would both be starting if they were healthy and possibly the back-up SS if Reyes can't go. Ridiculous to think that half of the starting line-up is missing games right now.

Are Rodgers / Hunt the two most important players that are hurt (not counting Larson who's RS)? Basically, the rest of the defense could be healthy, but ultimately, it wouldn't really matter, because UND is so weak up the middle. That's the feeling I have right now.

Does anyone have any idea on the status of those three?  I watched rastas give great effort on Saturday but he literally just is not big enough yet for the middle.

He came out with his arm dangling and iced his elbow for a series or two, returned for one series (I think it was just one), then next appeared without shoulder pads. 

We sit right behind the defensive bench, so have a good of view of these things.  Unfortunately, they don't tell us what that view means...

It was crazy looking at our sideline this past game and seeing as many guys in jumpsuits as were in pads and uniform.

Luke Fiedler significant upper body injury today too

And did you know that he also has pneumonia which already began at the Utah game?

Doesn't the Dr. report this stuff to the coach? Reason I ask is because he was not listed on the injury list. He is out now for 3 weeks. Surprised he played at all Sat.
