NDSU redshirts a lot of their kids. Seems to work out for them. :D

So does being the top university in the most populated city in the state, having a large fan base, donors and corporate sponsorships, top facilities, player stipends and a F-ton of trophies. Lucky bastards and yes I'm jealous.

Anyone have any idea of why he is transferring out so close to the season kicking off? Outside of the virus situation.

He had some tweets mid Feb about an obstacle and asked why they (assuming WIU) let him come all the way up here knowing his situation. Not sure what that was, but could still be the reason.

Does that put us back to 2 QBs and 1 Freshman QB?

There's one more:
Senior Connor Sampson
Junior (?) Christian Carter (played 2 years at Merrimack, transferring to WIU, might have to sit out this year unless he's a grad transfer)
Sophomore Henry Ogala (transferred from Lincoln University, redshirted last year)
Freshman Clay Bruno (from Rochester, IL)
