    Next year starter?

    Who will most likely be the starters next year? Seems like we have a lot of experience coming back. Also glad some freshman got playing time on special teams and things like that because it's great experience for them.

    Re: Next year starter?

    Does anyone know if we are switching to a 4-2-5?

    We don't lose much quantity, but we lose some big quality, especially on the defense...here's a guess. Positions with lost starters in bold.
    (Graduating starters - Hamilton, Catlett, Stephens, Frere, Je. Smith, Garrin, Ja. Smith, Banks)

    QB - Arnaud
    RB - ARob
    WR - Darks
    WR - Chris Young/Sedrick Johnson/Ace Sanders? (if he comes here)
    WR - Jake Williams
    TE - Franklin/Ricky Howard
    OL - Osemele
    OL - Lamaak
    OL- Caspers? Sean Smith? One of the freshmen?
    OL - Alvarez
    OL - Haughton

    -have a feeling someone currently on the team is going to be moved to center.

    DE - Parker
    DE - Neal/Maggit/Rony Nelson
    NT - Bailey Johnson
    DT - Alburtis/Tonga? (if he comes here)
    LB - Taufoou (was he suspended?)
    LB - A.J. Klein
    DB - Johnson
    DB - Benton
    DB - Anthony Young
    S - Sims
    S - O'Connell/Durell Givens

    Linebacker's probably the one position I have absolutely no idea on. Taufoou will be a senior and Klein got some PT this year, but we've got 3 high school LB's coming in.

    I could be wrong, but don't we use the Nickel as our base package already?

    If Ace Sanders came here he would more then likley be starting over Jake Williams.

    I thought about it, but conventional wisdom has S. Johnson starting over Williams, as well. Gave him the benefit of the doubt because he's the most productive receiver returning.

    Re: Next year starter?

    What about Darius Reynolds at WR?


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: Next year starter?

    Hicks will be in the mix on the OL (he is still here, right?). Burris could improve enough to start at tackle, and allow someone to move inside.
    On the Dline, I think Rump, and maybe someone like Black or Woods will have a shot, assuming no stud newcomers. I also hope to see Laing compete for one of the end spots.
    At LB, Lattimer (sp) played quite a bit last night when Raven tore his knee. Knott has a chance to make a big leap at LB next year too (we need him to).
    If O'Connell can improve his speed a little (maybe take off a few pounds) I think he could replace Smith pretty well at safety.

    I really like the foundation of the team, there is starting to be some depth (albeit, still not the talent of the upper-echelon teams). Too bad the schedule is insane (come on JP, you needed to get us out of the Utah/Connecticut games).

    Re: Next year starter?

    First of all, I am pretty sure that Matt Taufoou was redshirted this year. You also have Jacob Lattimer in the mix. Jake Knott played as much, or more, than AJ Klein. Kevin Hamlin could also be in for additional time on the field. Spring practice will sort a lot of this out. I also will not be surprised to see J. George getting some playing time like Jeremy Reeves did this year.

    Based on what?

    Jake Williams is ISU's most consistent reciever.

    Re: Next year starter?

    Trying to name starters at WR is pointless, IMO. We have allot of guys who are going to play allot.

    Reynolds
    Darks
    Johnson
    Williams
    Young
    Lenz
    West
    Jennert
    Blanton

    My guess is that we will see at least some of all of those guys.

    QB Arnaud/Tiller
    RB Robinson/Williams
    TE Franklin/Howard
    WR Johnson/Reynolds
    WR Williams/Young
    WR Darks/Lenz
    LT Osemele/Burris
    LG Hicks or Baysinger
