    Petey....here are a few hard hitting and fair questions to ask:

    - is the staff planning on requesting medical red-shirts for Boyd/Kier/Daddy? if so, which ones? and what is the plan?
    - in a league where big men are prominent, should our staff maintain a "position-less" roster?
    -why are they still tinkering with the starting lineups every game?
    -why do our players seem to regress throughout the course of the year? it's noticeable how great Hartwell, Miller, and Greene were in the early part of the season and their production have all fallen off trememendously

    Me too. It’s probably a difficult line to toe as a coach. You don’t want to burn out the seniors. But you want to show the incoming freshman what is expected.

    Would be interested to hear the Dayton blogger's (Russel something) response after seeing Mason play. In the podcast Bryan let loose on alot of stuff which was nice to hear. Interested in another perspective. Maybe they do a quick post game wrap up?

    Fun fact mentioned in that article: Mason came really close to knocking off #4 Dayton, who had the longest win streak in the country. Tied with Dayton? New Mexico State, whom Mason beat in November. And then lost a bunch of home games to the bottom half of the league.

    GK, as the season comes to a close, we all would be interested to hear the status of Justin Kier and
    Ian Boyd — are they returning for 20-21? And I heard AJ is not ready to graduate in 2020, so he should
    return, yes? Please confirm with Coach Dave and give us a report. We gotz to know!

    I’m curious if DP will bring back Boyd if Kier is not eligible for a medical redshirt.

    Isn't AJ technically a senior now? Do they only honor redshirt seniors?

    They only honor those who have exhausted their eligibility.

    Grayer got his waiver after the season was over. AJ is a declared redshirt JR.

    In what way has Boyd exhausted his eligibility?

    Same deal as Kier probably, he has to file paperwork at the end of the season. Though he's a sure bet to get another year. As of now both are done.
