Great story on Onunwor:
Yeah Coleman basically dropped out of the draft in most mocks in the 3 weeks between when I posted that and this weekend. I'm still surprised he hasn't signed anywhere yet.
He'll field a tryout I'm sure. Wouldn't be surprised if that turns into a PS spot.
Surprisingly Jordan Rose has a tryout with the Chiefs. Surprised it's not the Raiders as Tom Cable tends to like big dumbass goons.
After seeing some mocks a few days before the draft I was pretty sure no Idaho guys were going to go but I thought for sure Coleman and Duckworth would get signed as undrafted free agents.
So far just three rookie mini camp invites for Linehan, Duckworth, and Rose. Considering the 2009 H-Bowl team had four draft picks including a first rounder in Iupati, this is pretty disappointing.
Also, didn't even realize this but they had the spring game recently.

Defense crashes UI party
Petrino and Richardson split reps at first team QB with Lemle getting second team reps. Mason's stats look okay but from what I understand a lot of that was due to the majority of the starting secondary being out and the more conservative play calling when he was in. Richardson is still nursing an ankle injury.
Saunders and Thigpin were both injured at RB.
And finally, Kaden Ellis took almost no reps at LB and instead played a hybrid TE/WR position most of the game.
I really don't think you can take too much away from any of this. Too many guys hurt or playing where they really shouldn't be playing.
Also these two articles can't decide which side of the ball looked better which is weird.
This is what fucking happens when give up on the football program. Players give up too.

FUCK! Huge blow to the defense. If I'm being honest though, good for him. He was the 11th highest graded LB in the nation last year according to PFF. If he continues to dominate on a bigger stage of the MWC then he could potentially get drafted in the top end of the NFL draft.
According to the link you posted about Lashley leaving... Sannon & Coleman got rookie tryouts as well. Onunwor's gotta be bummed.
I definitely can't blame him, and apparently he's been looking to get out for a few years now. Just worked out that the grad transfer was his best option.
Don't hate the guy, but the two best defensive players from last season are now gone or playing mostly on offense.
That and the team he ended up transferring to is a huge kick in the balls. Only would have been worse if he transferred to another FCS school.
Oh, and if he does make it in the NFL he's going to have BJC next to his name instead of the school he played four years at and actually graduated from.

Good news, but the damage has already been done.
