    how will we do this year?

    i think the offense will be the best in the big 12 north... of course, mizzou lost chase daniel and jeremy maclin, so this is a valid arguement. we return 4 starters on the o-line, arnaud is back and will be better, our running game will dominate with a-rob leading the way, and our WRs are gonna be awesome. look for darks to have a huge season. i thought arnaud really learned to use his TEs late in the season, so catlett and collin franklin will be a huge part of the offense. call me stoopuid, but i think franklin has a shot at the nfl. he seems like a very smart kid....

    of course my main worry is defense. how can it get worse than last year? everyone talks about how many great DBs we have, but i think we have too many. keep switching guys in and out and they get frustrated at their playing time. allen bell and devin mcdowell were expected to start last year, but lost their starting spots to a couple freshman. leonard johnson had a big season, and should have an even bigger season for us this year. ter'ron benton told me he has been busting his butt in the off season, so hopefully he can have a big year. the d-line should be ok with parker and nate frere,jerod black and chris lyle. i have heard that chris lyle has put in alot of work in the off season and will have a huge year. how bout special teams? we have an amazing punter, and a young kicker who suprised alot of us last year. our kicking game should be good. return game should be awesome as well. if we can actually get some blocks for LJ, he may just run a couple kicks back to the endzone...

    overall, i think we will improve and win 4 games this year... maybe 5... of course we haven't got to see how the play calling will go yet... after ripping out most of my hair last season, i have been growing it out and have a full head to rip out this season...

    i'm interested to see what parts people agree and disagree on... go clones!

    Yikes is right! Awesome WR's?!?!

    I think Kansas will have a better offense than us. And losing Maclin will hurt Mizzou more than losing Daniel. They have Gabbert coming in

    Re: how will we do this year?

    we have a coach who could actually get a-rob a good amount of carries... i was thinking bo williams was gonna be awesome, but from reading stuff on the forum today, i am thinking maybe not... i think we are solid at WR with darks, hamilton, jones etc... those guys did great at running their routes last year, but had too many drops. i guarentee they have worked on that... the o-line is gonna be better i think... still pretty young, but a little more experienced. they did ok last year

    Re: how will we do this year?

    I read best Offense in the Big12 north and all credibility was lost. I think we will be improved but we have absolutely no clue how the players and coaches are going to do switching to a completely difference offense. Same thing goes for defense but we can only go up from last year.

    I am pumped for this season though.

    Re: how will we do this year?

    so looking at the schedule, how many games do you guys think we can win? had some close ones last year. could have easily won 5 with better play calling... one thing that made me mad in the 3rd qtr of the kansas game was a-rob trying to make huge plays out of nothing. i remember one play he could have just layed out for a 1st down but instead he tryed a spin move and we ended up punting.

    Re: how will we do this year?

    i dont think k-state will be very good. they sucked even with josh freeman, and without him they will be last in the north... thats right, we will not finish last this year! colorado kinda scares me though... i think that young RB they have is gonna have a monster year

    You might be waiting. Plan on ARobs getting the bulk of the snaps at RB.

    hope so! a-rob is amazing and didnt get the ball nearly enough last year... i hope we draw up some new plays for him. maybe run a little option like we did vs colorado, which worked really well except the last play of the game. everyone knew what play was called... hope we throw alot of screens to a-rob too!

    I'd expect him to get the ball more out of the backfield. Everything's shotgun and they want to get our RB in space and he's really the best guy for that.
