Removed from roster:

Freshman QB L.T. Beck from Burlington - redshirt walk-on this year. It's possible it didn't look like he was going to get offered a scholarship and decided to look elsewhere.
Senior OL Reno Rosene - grad transfer from Duke. Not sure if he played at all this year (he's not showing up on the participation list). Possibly was injured during practice or something and didn't end up playing?
Yep Beck posted a note that he has entered the transfer portal
Going to be thin at the QB position again.

So besides Connor who else will be on the roster for QB going into recruiting season?

GV Dad was saying people are excited for Ogala. If my memory is correct. I also expect a lot of offers to go to QBs this recruiting season.

It's hard to keep a QB room full. Only one get's to play, and no one likes to sit. A team needs at least 4 to have a good spring or summer camp; we'll have 2 on the roster after the season. I bet we see at least one early JUCO qualifier if not 2 come in January. Just to have the arms to function.

I would go with just 3 and solid wildcatter.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

It will be interesting to see if any of these coaches even keep their jobs. The Illinois financial mess may be the only thing that keeps them around, but if the coaches get fired, the QB position likely will be someone a new regime will want to invest in.

Is a 1 win season the worst in school history?

I wouldn’t be opposed to this! I wonder if Ratko can throw? 🙂💪🏼

It's not just us, very few FCS schools have the financial ability to just "eat" a HC contract for a year or two and hire someone else.

In our history, we have had 1 winless season, 1944, when we went 0-8. In the DI era, our worst record is when we went 1-10 in 2009 (the season with all the turmoil from Coach P being forced out). If we do not win another game, because it is a 12-game season, we will set the school record for most losses in a season with 11.

He originally was recruited as a QB, so I'd say that's a viable option.
