    Thanks Chris! I really think our linebackers could be somewhat of a strength this year. Even without George, there is more experience across the board than there was a year ago.

    No kidding. What's worse? The news coming out of Ames last night during the "riot" that has lead to the cancellation of VEISHA this year or the news coming out of Jack Trice? Thank God this is the spring and not fall.

    Still holding out hope that the defense can at least be serviceable, the LB's can be better than last year, but if the d-line is as bad as we are all anticipating, it won't matter.

    No punting. No kickoffs. Ones vs twos although those are just temporary positions until the real guys come back next fall. Sounds semi-boring compared to other spring games. It will be interesting how many observers show up with no VEISHA. Over /Under for 5000?

    Sounds like Alton Meeks is currently running with the ones. This doesn't shock me, as Jordan Harris is still adapting to the defense. But wouldn't be shocked if Meeks gives him a run for his money for the starting spot.

    I am hopeful about the position as well. Jevohn Miller seemed to turn it on at the end of last year, and Brackens has only about a year at LB now so I'm hopeful he's improving a lot like a lot of JUCOs do in their 2nd year. Meeks beating out Seeley is a good sign if anything, in my opinion.

    If Devron Moore doesn't come back, does that open up a scholarship for this year or is it too late? With the way the coaching staff talks up Levi Peters it would seem like he's earned one.

    I think they already have one open for 2014-2015 thanks to Coe. It would be too late for this semester.

    It's great to see some youth being talked about in terms of talent and not needing 3-4 years for them to be ready to play. With Trib, Knott, and hopefully Meeks we will hear these names on game day for years to come. Perhaps Aka and Cousins can be in that too long with Meyers. While I hope the new staff can start making some head way in terms of recruiting better Defensive talent (look at the players who have moved onto the NFL over the last couple of years from ISU) that it would help recruiting. While a few high school recruits for the front 4 would be great, CPR's and staff better be searching the JUCO ranks and hitting it hard.

    Well, that would suck. Let's just hope Moore comes back then.
