Ty Tyler’s loss would be a blow to MU defense

Chuck LANDONMay 26, 2019

The Ty Tyler situation is a real dilemma.

What if the 6-foot-3, 251-pound star defensive lineman does indeed leave Marshall University’s football program?

I mean, it is certainly a distinct possibility, considering the redshirt senior recently placed his name in the transfer portal.

So, what if Tyler leaves?

What then?

Does the Thundering Herd have an able-bodied replacement waiting in the wings?

Unfortunately, there are a lot more questions than solutions.

That’s why this is such a dilemma.

The truth of the situation is, aside from redshirt senior standout Channing Hames, who was expected to team with Tyler at the defensive tackle positions, there are only three other defensive tackles with any playing experience whatsoever.
