Glad he is making the best decision for himself. There's no way it was an easy one.

I assumed so, but thought it was possibly the Beer guzzling team

wait, so is that 4 or 5 starting Wisconsin OL gone now with Diezten retiring?

Wonder if hot-shot 5* Logan Brown gets some playing time as a true frosh.

I think they have a pair of tackles waiting in the wings. So unless he or one of them moves to guard, maybe not that much. 
Then again, I’m fond of saying, it’s what happens between now and Sept that sets these things.

Logan Brown did not enroll early. It's highly doubtful that he sees time this year, except for maybe in jumbo packages. Probably not worth burning a 'shirt over though, so 4 games max.



JD was a trooper. Played through a ton of injuries. But, last season, I think Cole Van Lanen played more snaps at LT even though JD was the "starter" at the position. And CVL turned out to be the highest graded lineman on the team. So LT is good. Beach played really well at RT when David Edwards went down. As in, really well. OL is not a concern of mine right now.

generally you want to redshirt every OL recruit. The STARZ system for the most part gets it right- but they whiff on rankings, especially at OL- which generally speaking is a crapshoot- but Brown sure as hell looks ready to rock and roll day one from a physical standpoint. IF he's really that dude, then it makes no sense to redshirt him because he won't be staying 5 years anyway.

In a world where recruiting rankings are correct in aggregate, redshirting everyone is also the most reliable way to fight back. It's been a central characteristic for teams like Iowa, MSU and UW who have accomplished big things despite average recruiting rankings.

could possibly be condescending, but I wouldn't take it that way

redshirting everyone was Tom Osborne's MO.  Freshman team and then start seeing the field in mop up time

Juniors and seniors started after thousands of practice reps, game reps, and countless hours in the weight room.  Mature players that executed w/o mistakes win games.

I didn't think it was controversial and meant it dispassionately. Also, as a strategy, it's smart and goes hand-in-hand with atypical coaching stability. What's the negative part? The average recruiting rankings? I meant them as matters of fact, without attaching an attitude.

Meanwhile, what's the acronym "AMIRNG?"

Maybe redshirting should be a "central characteristic" for Michigan too. AM I wRoNG?
