You think Mertz has a shot at starting? I'm starting to think why not? Which is mostly just a poor reflection of who's on the depth chart now.

Feels a little like 2009, really not knowing who will earn the spot. Hornibrook is likely done; Vanden Boom was on the depth chart for the bowl game over Chase Wolf, but maybe because they wanted to protect Wolf's redshirt? Lot's of youth...

I didn't watch but did read some glowing reports of Mertz in his AA game.

 If it matches that year, Wolf has it. 
 I get that he’s done all the hype worthy things, but I’m not gonna put that much on the freshman just yet. What you doing a random practice field or a pretend game is just a lot different then absorbing a full playbook and doing things against real college guys. 
I also wonder if people are writing off Alex too quickly. In part I understand it, because people are just tired of watching him play.

There are no more Mendota meetings (and information was getting thin anyway..) so I'm unable to dig and see if AH is truly done. Nobody seems to know anything. Edwards leaving early (he's not ready) is interesting, as it relates to AH (or not).

Correct about the 2009 outcome...Tolzien mostly came out of left field. And correct about Mertz, I think; playbook will be difficult to absorb that quickly. And Wolf was pretty well liked coming out of high school, too. Maybe his redshirt year is just what he needed?

Hornibrook...I'm not off the wagon yet, but I'm leaning that way a lot more than I was to start 2018. He's certainly not a shoe-in.

I'm going to speculate that you will see a QB transfer after Spring ball, and possibly a position change for another.

Is this assuming AH health or no?

Have to assume he's healthy and coming back. I also take heed to PC's comments after the bowl game. "We have to get better at the position" is what he said. So, what I think is that either AH (grad) transfers - or stops playing. I'm also thinking that Vanden Boom can play elsewhere - safety comes to mind, or even OLB if he can put on a few more pounds.

Rittenburg is reporting that the finalists for the Bama OL position are Kyle Flood and current UW ILB coach Bob Bostad. 


I'd really like to know what Rudolph is up to, but we won't know anything until it happens (if anything even happens). It would be painful to lose Bostad, but he's an OL coach, and he's one of the best.

I forgot that Rudolph is coaching OL and Bostas isn't.

It's hard to argue the results. Rudolph is a Bostad disciple and the OL has done pretty well. Bostad did just fine with the ILB's too. But, if he wants to coach OL again and Rudolph is staying on board, well, it would be hard to blame him for leaving.


I'd like to see some shuffling of the staff, to be honest. Let Rudolph coach TE's and be the "OC" and let Bostad coach the OL. Move Turner from TE to maybe special teams, which have not performed well under the current guy.

No big surprise on this one. The former 4* got passed up by a 3* and a 2*. Would not be shocked to see him end up at Utah State.



MADISON, Wis. -- Junior tight end Kyle Penniston has put his name in the transfer portal, Badger247 has confirmed.
