Musings:

  • Tyler Goodson has surpassed Ivory Kelly-Martin as the No. 3 back. Duh.
  • Alaric Jackson re-assumes his LT role after starting there at Michigan, for better or worse. Interestingly enough, Levi Paulsen is now the backup RG and not the back RT. He’s the de-facto sixth lineman in my book, however.
  • There was more movement on defense. Julius Brents is back in the lineup after missing considerable time. He’s probably the No. 3 corner now, even after Terry Roberts did pretty well last week.
  • Brady Reiff hasn’t won back his starting role on the interior defensive line... and I’m not sure he ever will.
  • Seth Benson is now backing up Djimon Colbert after Nick Niemann has spent the entire season as the No. 2 WLB.
  • Jack Koerner is still beating out Kaevon Merriweater after KM got injured earlier in the year. Koerner, a walk-on, has been playing really well actually and I’m fine with this.
  • And that’s kinda it!
  • Please beat Penn State.
