    Is this the best linebacking core, top to bottom, that the Buffs have had in the last 10 years (including the incoming freshman and Mohler)? I would think, talent wise, that if everyone gets on campus this fall we could have some serious competition and therefore some serious depth at LB.

    I´d have the Buffs´ LBs over the Broncos´.

    I think this group of LBs has the most potential; time will tell if they live up to it.

    Agreed... To go out on a lim and say that this is THE best group of LB's we've had, before half of them even step onto campus, is a little premature.

    We'll know in the years to come. With groups like williams,mcghee,jones and beikert/ brown,russell,johnson woolfork, it would be tough to call this group even in the same breath until they actually play a few years together.

    On paper, this group appears to be right up there with all the greats.

    All together this is a much improved group from last year but there's no way to try to replace Dizon.

    The last 10 years maybe .... but nothing will ever beat:
    Greg Biekert
    Ted Johnson
    Chad Brown
    Greg Jones
    Matt Russell on the bench.
    I have a DVD of a game from I think 65 with that LB lineup ... :thumbsup:

    Lofasz is right ... these kids are still too green for such a proclamation. And we just lost the Butkus Trophy runnerup.

    True, the guys we have coming in are pretty dang talented. But when you mention those names, those freshmen don't sound quite as good. I hope they're as good as advertised.

    Totally agree with that. I'm just thinking that this group might be able to get us back to the days when we could rattle off a list like that at one position.

    I hope we are overeacting. I consider myself an optimist, but in this situation i'm expecting the worst. Then maybe i'll be pleasantly suprised with the outcome.
