Matt Rhule’s response to Baylor’s 0-2 start (and a few injuries we’ve had along the way) has been swift and decisive; this week against Duke, the Bears will start 9 new players including a new QB, LG, C, DE, DT, rush end, free safety, strong safety, corner, and defensive end. Here’s the depth chart as presented this morning:
To put this into perspective, you only start 22 players at a given time (obviously), and from the Liberty game to now, we’ve turned over 10 of them due either to injury or (I presume) ineffectiveness. And that number doesn’t even include switches made between weeks 1 and 2 (like Xavier Jones to Greg Robert at DE) that have now been undone. Suffice to say our staff is working hard to figure things out, and the most we can do is hope that they did.
