    worried about the LB's next year

    we obviously lose our top three in raven, garin and smith. i wasn't able to see all the games this year and to be honest i often don't pay attention enough to see when the subbing happens. i know everyone is hot on knott and klein to step right in a replace two of those guys, but did they get meaningful snaps this season with the 1st team defense? i remember seeing them in the kent st game but was really it aside from sp teams.

    anybody know the story or heard anything on the three jucos or two freshman?

    jon watts (jr) did he take a rs?
    jacob lattimer (so)
    matt taufoou (jr)

    fr kevin hamlin? i thought he transferred or left the team but is still listed on the roster.
    fr willie scott?

    encouraging that our 3 LB recruits are all rated in the top 100 for their positions according to rivals

    Re: worried about the LB's next year

    Lattimer played a ton against Minnesota, I think in place of Josh Raven who left early for some reason. Raven left the game in the 1st or early 2nd quarter and was in sweats on the sideline for the 2nd half.

    Tau'fo'ou was redshirting I think, and Hamlin is down on the depth chart.

    Klein played on most special teams and a little at LB but mostly in 2nd-3rd string time. Knott played most of the Colorado game with the 1st string after Garrin got a little banged up.

    CPR has been pretty complementary about Klein and Knott's play and potential.

    I thought I heard we switch to a 4-2-5 next year also

    Re: worried about the LB's next year

    I think we will have more talent at LB next year. Their success is going to hinge on how quick they can get up to speed. I'm sure at the start of the season they will struggle, but by the end they will be better than this years LB. Heck even Dobbins took a half a year before getting things together. I remember him getting pulled out of the Northern Illinios game for making mistakes. I am more concerned about the D-line than I am Linebacker.

    I think we need a solid JUCO LB.

    how exactly will we have more talent next year? we lose three SENIOR STARTERS one of which was a 1st team all big 12. we replace them with two true sophomores with limited action and a JUCO. they may hold their own, but i don't see it being an improvement.

    we will be inexperienced and shallow on the depth chart.

    Re: worried about the LB's next year

    we replace them with faster, hopefully better athletes, just with less experience.

    is jake knott faster than fred garrin? i think i would put my money on garrin. he had a lot of impressive offers out of HS. raven was also recruited as an atheletic lightweight LB.

    have absolutely no idea what any of their 40 times are, but my blind bet would go on garrin and raven to out race knott. klein over smith though, just based on everyone saying smith is slow and unathletic for the big 12.

    Re: worried about the LB's next year

    I see the linebackers being down out at the beginning of the year but they'll be just fine after one or two games. the lb'ers that will be starting/playing next year got quite a bit of experience this year.

    Anybody see Knott catch the Minnesota player on the fake punt before he faceplanted? I'd say he's got some speed and him and Freddy are the same in terms of speed.

    Re: worried about the LB's next year

    Yeah.... I'm not so sure we'll be faster by losing Garrin and Raven and replacing with Lattimer and Taufou?

    I think George and Hulbert will be very fast LB's though.

    Any word on Willie Scott? Is he headed for DE?
