Tarwater & Gatlin look really, really good. Also, it is interesting to see Jamal Cherry and Jonny Gray, the walk-ons, in the photo. It would be nice if Slope interviewed them at some point because they seem so foreign right now, to me at least. How integral a part of the team are they at this point? Jamal Cherry is not on the roster & does not seem to have been granted team shoes. Jonny Gray, on the other hand, seems close friends with & generally inextricable from the other sophs.

Eitan really beefed up.

Good looking bunch of guys.

Jon is a member of the team, Jamal is not a member of the team.

Jamal is however very much a part of the program, because he works out and practices with the team. But he is not an official member of the team.

Both Jon and Jamal came to Cornell as walk-ons. Neither were recrutied in the traditional sense.

The staff obviously likes Jamal, he works hard, but roster sizes need to be controlled and you just can't reward everyone with a roster spot.

Perhaps there is room for Jamal further down the line, or he improves to the point where you have to take him on.

Right now, he is an important part of the scout squad and he gets to be a member of a Division I program.

Nothing against the guys who were assigned the jerseys, but, #12 and #20 (and #1) should be retired.

The jersey is draped over Matthew's body, telling me they simply reused Wittman's jersey. That's just sad. We couldn't afford a new round of jerseys after our last 3 years?

They are new jerseys.

If these were new uniforms, couldn't we have gotten a few 'new' numbers (e.g., #6, #41, #50) so we could retire #12 and #20?

I don't believe we got new jerseys. If we did, we wouldn't recycle those numbers and we wouldn't have the same baggy ones we've been wearing. We'd have the new system of dress that harvard and princeton and every major D1 nike school has.
