    Ahhh, the life of a Buffalo.

    It's funny, I always look for things to get excited about and to hang some hope on to keep me coming back. Not sure how or why I would do it otherwise.

    fwiw, in last year's PC he said he expected everyone back. I translate this as "we are changing some AC's, but I'm not sure how many yet"

    Getting Tupou and Gillam back healthy and on top of their game will be huge for next year. Now to getting the Oline and QB manageable......

    Getting a motivated Tupou back to clog the middle will be huge, especially with Solis graduating.

    It's so funny. When I look at our roster I just don't see a ton of holes. Feel like we have several solid options at all positions....but then we don't win.

    QB - Should be ok at worst
    RB - Multiple good options
    WR - Several good ones. Not great but good
    OL - Have some depth and options
    DL - Same
    Secondary - Same

    OL is a HUGE question mark right now. Replacing Nembot at RT and counting on Irwin to come back healthy from an ACL at LT.

    Oh I know. But it's not a situation where we have a bunch of inexperienced guys. Returning we have:

    Irwin
    Kelly
    Callahan
    Huckins
    Kronshage
    Lisella
    Kough

    Lynot and Middlemiss redshirted.

    This is my point. We don't win games, we aren't a good team. But when you break each position down you go "wow, we have some depth there." Almost everywhere

    Why is Tupou not coming back until May? I thought he was only barred for a semester. Missing spring practice and 6 months of workouts is no bueno.

    Numbers do not equal depth.

    The OL is a horror show until otherwise proven.

    While I'm tempted to start drinking some 2016 Kool-Aid already, I looked at the Massey Ratings today and found we are 93rd. That's 3rd worst among P5 schools (ahead of OSU and Kansas). On the bright side our only win above a higher rated team was against CSU who sits incidentally at 92nd.

    Until we beat a real team I'm not going to get excited about the program, it only sets you up for disappointment. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised when we beat a decent team.

    The vast majority of those guys that are being counted on as "depth" are guys that I will probably be excited about when they're RS-JRs and SRs, but they don't move the needle much for me now. I don't feel like going into specifics about other questions I have about that position group since we're not in Barzil, but suffice it to say I will respectfully disagree with any assertion that the OL is "solid". I do feel optimistic about the group, however.

    Also, I look at what's coming back on the DL, and IF Tupou can come back close to the same player he was and IF Henington can come back and be as effective as they thought he'd be this year, and IF the rest of the depth chart can add an offseason's worth of weight, that group looks OK to me. If nothing else, better size than we've had there recently.

    How do you dry heave Kool-aid? Wouldn't that be wet heaving? Or, maybe, just heaving.

    I think it is very telling that you forgot a group altogether. That might clue us in on where we need the most help.

    No Doubt. I am pretty confident in saying that we have at least one and maybe as many as 3 offensive lineman coming back that could start on other Pac12 teams. I am not sure that is true of any of our current linebackers. Maybe long term the freshman have a chance to develop into real live talents, but that is about it. It is a giant suckhole.

    I was impressed with NJ and Watanabe in the limited snaps they played this year but Leavitt still has a lot of work to do for me to have confidence in that unit.

    On the D-line I would love to see Jimmie Gilbert get some more time. He was able to get to the QB in his limited snaps and we will certainly need pass rushers next year.
