    I see they flipped Campos and Dunning. I see this as only being a good thing.

    Hard for us to waste a chance to score or really move the ball like you can on a kick off. Any bit of help this offense can get, should be taken

    You are crazy. On a per play basis, the added utility of returns is greater than the unsubstantiated claim of an increase of injury.

    Nealy and West each had returns for touchdowns last season. When is the last time we've had two guys with special teams touchdowns returning?

    Come to think of it, we had about as many big plays last year as we've had in the previous 5 put together. Bundrage had about 5 long TD grabs.

    Big plays = potential

    If you're banking on Wimberly being a workhorse, you are in for disappointment. We saw it last year - he's not big enough to absorb the punishment of 20-25 carries a game. His best chance to make an explosive play is when he gets the ball in space with room to make a move, not running straight into the teeth of a stacked box.

    fwiw, ALABAMA still hasn't named a starting quarterback. 1 week until kickoff. Guess we aren't the worst at naming QB starters?

He predicted that before Taylor was even on board as well. The thing he doesn't/didn't realize is there was really good talent recruited at those positions before he got here. Seeley and Meeks were both way better than he thought they would be and Mutcherson and Moya are way better than he ever gave credit for. I thought Harris had a chance to start but I didn't think Ayeni or Pierson would start right away because Morrissey was always starting and Meyers was pretty good toward the end of last year. I like what Trey does from a coverage standpoint and he does put in a lot of effort but he didn't give the existing freshmen and sophomores enough credit when he made the claims about those JUCO guys.

    This is about what I expected. I thought one of the DEs would make a push, and Taylor did but it's pretty hard to show up in August and start right away. I thought Harris would start and if you would have asked me what would happen if he didn't, I would say he won't play much. He's a like a Matt T(I don't remember how the rest goes) On a team with much better options at LBer. I thought Moore could maybe start but I had heard really good things about the guys that are there.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Tough to come in and play in a new system that quickly. Hope they come on as season goes along. If going to recruit jucos, they need to contribute. Because they take away from the size of the younger classes, once you start down the juco road, hard to go back. They both seem too good not to play, though.

    We don't know if it's the juco guys not being as good as we thought, the young guys being better, or something else. It could be either way.

    Jucos rarely come in and start game one, especially if they weren't early enrollees.

    Strange timing but after I posted this Trey announced he will be moving on from AllCyclones.com. A loss to the Cyclone community IMO.

    One of the very few things that was good on the ISU team last year was the KR unit, which means it was blocked well and coached well. Wimberly may be pushing to do this himself, as he is probably too small to be an NFL back, but might catch on as a return man. I like the idea on having guys that can make defenders miss and then have the speed to take it all the way, and Jarvis and Wimberly fit the bill the best.
