    Ok, I'll bite... What in the hell was Sims thinking!?! I'm sure if he's available this may be asked and re-asked and then for clarification sake it will be asked again!

    Re: Media story requests?

    Matt Tau'fo'ou vs Ter'ran Benton...who is on the field more? Meaning, with the opponents this year is the 4-2-5 or 4-3 going to be more prevalent? Will it in fact be Benton at the hybrid CB/LB spot or will he move to CB full time opposite of LJ? If yes, who slides into his spot from last year?

    Re: Media story requests?

    Update on the defensive tackles. IMO the DEs should be ok but if we are soft in the middle it could spell big time trouble, especially with the young linebackers.

    I very much hope they dont ask this. Focus on the team and season, not an individuals indescretions.

    Re: Media story requests?

    How is the OL developing after the loss of haughton and how are they going to gel with a new starter in there from spring?

    I would love to know what our OC & DC are thinking.

    Wally- We have a young & inexperienced linebacker group, but an experienced backfield, do our starters have enough game time experience to know where they should be located and what gaps they're responsible for?

    Herman- With a year under their belt, can we see a vast improvement in year 2 like your team did at Rice?

    Re: Media story requests?

    Any chance of seeing Tiller on the field this year at a position other than QB?

    Re: Media story requests?

    CPR:
    1. Is Rony Nelson on the team? If so, what took so long and how does he think Nelson will do?
    2. Other player status questions...Haughton, McCullough, Kron (greyshirt or not).
    3. Do they see a way that Tiller gets meaningful snaps or they set up a special package for him?
    4. What are his thoughts on the WR group? Did they address what was a pretty non-explosive offense last year? What do Young and Gary bring to the team?
    5. What untested players are they really needing to step up this fall?
    6. What does he expect from Patrick Neal this year? How do they expect to improve the pass rush?
    7. Any walk-ons get scholarships this fall?
    8. Who replaces Sims as Captain?
    9. Are there any true freshmen that he expects to play this year?

    Bleil:
    1. What is the story on Hayworth Hicks? How much of a drop-off is it from Haughton to Hicks?
    2. Who else is competing for the one open spot?
    3. Who will they be depending on for depth?

    Knott/Klein:
    1. How excited are they to get the season going?
    2. How is the feeling going into this year different than last?

    Burnham:
    1. How does he see the LB group? Will it be a problem with so little experience?
    2. How does he plan to improve the pass rush?
    3. What does he look for in recruiting defensive players?

    Elliot:
    1. What does Leonard Johnson have to do to be an all-conference RB?
    2. What kind of impact can we expect from JUCOs Young and Givens?
    3. If Benton goes up to SAM in the nickel, is there a competition for the vacated CB spot, or does Reeves have it locked down?

    I'd like to hear from McDonough...went through that illness (what was it?) and lost a bunch of weight before gaining it back and now is listed as a starter. I'd also like to hear from Reynolds and Parker to learn a little bit about what they went through last year coming back from an injury and how excited they are to play this fall. Hicks's journey would be interesting too.

    How does Rashawn Parker feel these days body wise? Is he cranked back to full speed?

    Re: Media story requests?

    Who is the one player that will never see much playing time, if any at all, but during practice, he throws himself to the wolves and holds his own?
