Rams lost another starter on their defense - they have no lost, or are expected to lose, the below by the time we see them in Sept.
CJ James - Senior Defensive End
Mike Orakpo - Junior Linebacker (likely kicked off team or suspended for our game)
Nordly Capi - Junior Defensive Lineman (likely kicked off team or suspended for our game)
Colton Paulhaus - Junior Defensive Lineman (likely kicked off team or suspended for our game)
Drew Reilly - Sophmore Defensive Back
That front seven is essentially decimated, as Sisson also graduated. This is the opportunity for our offensive line to prove that they've finally pulled it together. We'd better pound the rock down their throat, and then follow it up with some effective play action.

Their defense was going to struggle anyway, now it looks like a disaster. Add in a poor defensive staff and injuries (no team completely avoids them), you have a team that better be able to outscore everyone.
This sets up well for us in breaking in the starting five on OL. They should (hopefully) gel the first couple weeks before that primetime road game against Fresno.

Would anyone be surprised if Orakpo, Capi, and Paulhaus are suspended from preseason workouts (to teach them a lesson) but reinstated in time to play against CU?
Yeah, the media and community scrutiny would be intense if they're kept around. Neither McElwhine or Graham can be blamed for a crumby season as the result of getting rid of them - so it makes sense to dump em. But if they keep em, then that would tarnish their reputation early.

I am going to be REALLY curious at what CSU looks like on the field - meaning how Vanilla is his offense going to be? Was the boring offense we saw at Bama the results of Saban repressing McElwhine's creativity?
Who knows - but I think this guy has bust written all over him. There is a reason that he ended up at CSU, and not a more prestigious school
