    He left the football program in better condition than he found it along the offensive line. There are a lot of big bodies to work with this coming season...Anyone have any idea who the better lineman are aside from the starters from last year? It would be refreshing to see them over achieve.

    to me Givens is the one big question mark/opportunity.

    Yes, he's gone. At least he didn't lock himself in a stall in the men's room of Dal Ward and refuse to come out...

    I would also grudgingly admit that the national perception of the program with relation to program cleanliness i.e. crime, partying etc is improved. Of course there is also the corresponding national perception that we are a pathetic football program.

    I would like to see Richter step up and challenge. I also hope Mad Max is healed up enough to play. He looked like the real deal before he got hurt. I have also heard Jack Harris has the tools.

    Like I said it would be nice to see the O-line play with some authority for a change.

    I think this may be mostly due to distance from the "scandal" back in the 2000s and changes made prior to D2. Our APR has been garbage and a lot of D2's players never made it academically. Plus D2 still had such model citizens as Sipili and Katoa. I'm not sure I can give D2 much credit for "cleaning up" the program. If the perception outside the program is such that he did clean everything up, then I will give him some credit as he would have managed to swindle the rest of the country along with CU.

    time from the scandal and new people in power did a lot more to clean up the "image" than anything Dan actually did.

    Have heard nothing but good things about Harris. First mention of Munyer, but nice to hear.
