    Lord of the Rings reference? Knott and Klein would have taken Sauron by the legs and head and ripped him in 2. Thats how tough they were, and likely as the years go by we here will exaggerate their toughness immensely.

    Yep.

    I think Wally simply has very high standards and he avoids "coach-speak" (unlike Bliel who had me excited about the O-line last year).

    Re: CFTV: Wally Burnham assesses the defense in today's scrimmage

    IMO, this year we may be fighting for bowl eligibility like always, 6-7 or 7-6 is what I am predicting, i'll be fine with that out of this young team. Could we go 5-7, yea probably, if this team can go 3-0 in the non-con, thats a BIG IF, but I think we can handle Iowa and UNI, Tulsa will be tough but there won't be any lack of motivation by game 3. This year could be interesting because if we do the above, the expectations from here on out could be the moon with what this team could grow into with added improved recruiting over the next couple of years. Challenging for a top 3 finish could very well be in the cards in the near future.
    Am I predicting this and drinking massive amounts of Cherry Kool-Aid no I'm not, and a lot of what I just said depends on the potential that we see in the fall. I have many concerns but athleticism and talent aren't in the top 5 of concerns.

    Defense always over achieves, and this is his most talented defense yet even if it is young.

    I think too some of the players who "aren't ready" will surprise if they are thrown into a game. Rogers might not be ready yet, but he's a great athlete and maybe a future NFL player. Be patient with these guys and they might just surprise you.

    After the last game that was played, I'm ready to see the new versions on both sides of the ball.

    This.

    Also, I think expectations are getting higher as well, especially with the talent upgrade with these recruits. This is a very talented team. How they perform against UNI is enormous for confidence. But, this year more than any other this team will improve throughout
