Seeing people on twitter saying he isn't on the sidelines for us today....anyone know why?
Sorry if I missed this topic earlier
We haven't been told anything on the subject yet. We'll keep you posted if we learn anything.

Cant be because of a redshirt either, because I have seen Jameis on sidelines who is redshirting
I wouldn't think he would pack up and go home already for lack of playing time with his dad coaching here. But you never know.
Id hope thats not it, he would probably be a starter next year (if Bjoern leaves, which is a good possibility).
But it cant be because of a RS because other players RS are on bench, cant be grades because there havent been enough classes to get in grade trouble. Suspension/personal issue (illness/family/etc) are only other things I can think of.
Probably in some trouble...
Dont like the sound of this
Mario Jr and Casher are both redshirting (as of now) per Fisher
This is very good news to me. Doesn't waste a year for both.
However that still does not explain Mario's absence tonight.
Yea, I know for sure I saw Jameis on sidelines who is RS and I think I saw some other RS guys too. At least it isnt anything too bad though if Jimbo is saying its a RS
Redshirting players sometimes don't show up on the sideline for the game. It's not that uncommon. I don't understand redshirting Mario, he's arguably a 3 and out player anyway.
Why would we redshirt MEJ. He's not staying 5 years. Would be stupid.

Redshirt him because he isnt in the 2 deep depth chart this year and we have depth issues in the future at the position. Gives him the option to stay longer, think how many recruits or young players that we had that people said wouldnt stay more than 3 years that ended up staying a 4th.
To me he wasn't going to play much anyways, this allows him to develop a little quicker... it is a blessing guys this shows how deep we truly are at DE

I want to keep our de's fresh for the end of the year. Remember how are dts wore down late two years ago?
Redshirting Mario doesn't make sense to me. He needs to continue to change his body comp, but he has the strength to hold up at this level right now.
Would someone PM me the answer here. Getting divorced and Lawyer said could not pay for this anymore without her okay or the finalization.
Alabama's Jacks didn't wear down last year and they only rotated 3 players there tops. Our DTs wore down late two years ago because they were young and underdeveloped. It was year 1 of the new S&C program, those boys were training with Todd Stroud...
Five should be fine at DE. Tosh actually looked pretty good and got a lot of burn at 245. My issue is withholding scholarships because you don't like the DEs this year. That doesn't help us in 2013 when we'll have 3 total on the roster.
Dude. Feel for ya.
Newberry looked good tonight. Tosh is serviceable. If Mario's not in the top 4-5 DEs, then a RS is a good idea IMO. I have a feeling he and his dad are on board with this decision, and I'm going to not read anything into him being on the sideline or not tonight.
Casher was on the sideline tonight too
Good point, OL.
I realize de's dont take as much of a pounding as dts on average. However, we already had BJ leave a game. If we were playing Clemson or the gators would he have come back out? Most likely. And I thought Tosh looked solid as well and he always competes. But I have to see more out of #51 to feel comfortable. I'll watch him on film tomorrow. I think I even saw 97 at LDE tonight but it was most likely a 3-4 look.
