    Re: Injuries

    Alvin Bowen for defense

    Our biggest oline stud whomever that is.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: Injuries

    Blythe
    Anyone else seems replacable at this point. Arnaud sounds competant, we have a slew of running backs, we don't really know who our starters are in the secondary so there can't be that big of a let down, we have guys that are ready at linebacker.

    Basically I think we just need to avoid a lot of injuries to one position. We have some backups but we are not extremely deep anywhere.

    Re: Injuries

    Meyer, QB is the hardest position to settle into IMO.

    Re: Injuries

    Meyer is the hardest guy to replace. He has been through the wars, and knows how to make things happen. Bowen would also be a huge loss. Anyone that led the nation in tackles last year has to be covering a lot of field.

    Re: Injuries - Who can ISU least afford to get hurt?

    Meyer on O. As good as Arnaud and/or Bates MAY be, neither of them appear to be quite ready to fill in for Meyer if he goes down. I'd hate to lose Blythe, but we have some depth and talent at WR. Running back is truly deep. A loss of anyone on the O Line is probably a concern.

    Bowen on D. He is the heart and soul of a young defense. Losing him would be tough.

    Re: Injuries - Who can ISU least afford to get hurt?

    What a nightmare-ish thread! Hopefully not a single one goes down, but I think I'd have to go with Ace being the biggest loss too. Can you imagine last year's defense without him?

    Meyer and Blythe. I think Meyer's expierence would be too much to lose, and there does not seem to be any other person able to make the "big play" yet besides blythe
