Looking at this list I see some glaring issues.  First and most noted is the Offensive Line.  We only have 12 guys and some of them are no where near ready to line up against SEC guys. 


Also when you have six Quarterbacks on scholly… that means you have two too many.  Does anyone but me think that it is sad that with six, none are able to take the reigns and lead us?  Maybe we will get lucky and Kodi or Neil will emerge.  Todd and Trotter being hurt kind of take them out of the race at this point.


The Running Back pool will get smaller; I see at least one of these guys heading over to the defensive side of the ball.  Same thing at Wide Receiver… we have a ton… maybe Billings, Hawthorne, and Zachery can show us all that Knox was not the best coach on the planet.


Our Defensive Line and Linebackers look fine to me.  I know that they were suspect during the A-Day game, but I think with the summer to prepare we will be fine.  Spencer Pybus should be much improved at the LB position.


I still question the scholarship to a deep snapper, but what the hell!
