    Starting Positions

    Anyone want to guess on the starters for Offense and Defense in 2009?

    Re: Starting Positions

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Arnaud will be the quarterback. But in all seriousness, I think the newcomer most likely to start is Reynolds.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Starting Positions

    Here's my predictions, I don't know about possible position switches so I'm just sticking with what they are now (Corner moving to safety, MH to TE, SH to DT, etc) and I'm no insider so here goes.....

    QB: ARNAUD/TILLER
    TB: ROBINSON/WILLIAMS
    FB/HB: CATLETT/NEAL
    FB: MANSFIELD/ECKWELUNDU
    TE: FRANKLIN/BYKOWSKI
    WR: DARKS/JONES
    WR: HAMILTON/REYNOLDS
    WR: JOHNSON/RANGE
    LT: HAUGHTON/BURRIS
    LG: STEPHENS/KLEREKOPER
    C: LAMAAK/ALVAREZ
    RG: OSEMELE/BAYSINGER
    RT: HULBERT/HICKS


    DE: LYLE/LAING
    DT: JOHNSON/RUEMPOLHAMER/McDONOUGH
    NG: FRERE/BLACK/ALBURTIS
    RE: PARKER/MAGGITT
    SLB: BELL/HAMLIN
    MLB: SMITH/SCHMIDGALL
    WLB: GARRIN/RAVEN
    CB: JOHNSON/BENTON
    CB: BANKS/McDOWELL/BELL
    SS: SIMS/SANDVIG
    FS: SMITH/O'CONNELL

    We will probably be able to score a lot with 13 starting offensive players! I look forward to it.

    This will also be interesting with Tom Herman as the new OC!

    Makes you wonder if we end up scoring so quickly the defense doesn't have time to catch its breath...

    Re: Starting Positions

    I think we will likely see Dustin Land in the 2-deeps at one of the Safety positions, ahead of Sandvig and O'Connell. There is also speculation that he could beef up and play LB, but with the LB class we just brought in I would think he will stay put.

    Could we beef him up and put him on the D-Line

    Haha, it will be interesting to see how the players and positions are utilized. I don't know if we'll ever have a traditional fullback or some sort of halfback on the field, but whatever the set, different players are more capable of different roles.

    New NCAA rule, once you lose 10 games in a row you get to play 13 till you win. If you get to 15 losses in row you get 14 players.

    Re: Starting Positions

    I don't think Johnson and Hamilton will both start at WR. I think Jones instead of Hamilton.


    I'm kind of a big deal!

    I agree - for some reason, I've had this impression of Hamilton as an overly-athletic TE. He's not a bad player, just not fast enough to be split wide, I feel. Hopefully he'll prove me wrong and have a huge season at WR.
