    POLL: Put your GM hat on fanatics

    There's a big decision to be made (hypothetically) today regarding the 2011 Cyclone football season. Where do you stand?

    Ben Lamaak......You can have the best skill guys in the country but if your line is weak it won't matter. It all starts up front.

    Franklin. I don't think you can underestimate the value of what a great tight end does for all aspects of the offense.

    Re: POLL: Put your GM hat on fanatics

    This decision was a tough one. What finally swayed me to vote for Lamaak was simply that an above average O-line can do more in my opinion to positively affect the team than any other position. They can protect a hesitant or immobile QB, give average receivers more time to get open, road grade so an even average RB has gained yards before he is even touched, keep the D from having to see the field as often and nearly neutralize the problems of having an average FG kicker. Lamaak would be another high quality experienced starter who would give us immeasurable value as an experienced signal caller of the O-line.

    It all starts in the trenches and frankly I don't think any of our losses on D would make the difference.

    Doesn't Sage, Meyer, and Arnaud all have bowl victories?

    We have experience coming back at TE and some depth
    We have depth on the OLINE like we haven't seen in a while

    We have no experience returning at safety and little depth. No brainer on Sims

    Yes, all three have bowl victories.

    Also, if we could get a healthy Arnaud, I might lean that way with Lamaak being my second choice and either Sims or Franklin being a third choice.
