on the Cyclones.

Really glad we go Bouman and Dekkers last class, especially with Mitchell transferring out. I actually don't see a lot of playing time for true freshmen this year though there's always a few. These things are always a but of guesswork, but a solid read for a football starved fan. Here's the link...

Decent article, but it still amazes me how inaccurate some of these articles are. They must not do much homework.

Actually a fairly good assessment of the freshmen to watch.
That’s what I thought. They tried to match talent with opportunity, thin spots on the roster.

From a sheer talent standpoint some other players might have a chance. T.J. Tampa and Michal Antoine would be a couple of examples, but unlike the players mentioned in the article, they’ve got a lot of bodies ahead of them.

Come to think of it, Tampa certainly has the talents for a mean game of leapfrog...

I've heard Johnny Wilson will play this year. Sounds like he has been impressive!
We have 4 outstanding defensive ends. If he finds playing time, that's truly impressive indeed

Edit: there's what, 77 starters on a football team? He can find a lot of snaps outside of the DL

They didn’t include the one freshman who will be a day 1 starter. What a shame.
