Re: Revisit the depth chart

I guess one of the things I hadn't considered is how a 7 or 8 game season impacts a redshirt.
You could keep guys under 5 games a lot easier, and save a season for JG or EN at running back by splitting their games.

Pretty sure they will share the starting job. One may get more game play than the other but each has different strengths and will be used actively. We’ll see soon
If you have two QB's, you actually don't have one.
With Covid, if you have 1 qb you have 0.
