    Interesting - especially because the rest of the roster seems to give lots of deference to the upper classmen

    Punt and K/O return all lower classmen. I guess that says something about where the speed is.

    Edit - K/O team all FR... wow.

    Not sure how good we'll be this year, but we could have a very good defense in a couple of years. I'm actually confident we'll be good this year. I'm just worried we won't score many points. All depends on the running game since we don't seem to have game changers on the outside. I hope the WRs prove me wrong. Would be nice to see Nick Kasa have a big year too.

    I just saw an article can't find it right now that said he was ruled out for the first two games indefinitely but made it sound he will most likely be back for pac 12 play

    - Irwin #2 at LG over Crabb, interesting. Can't say I was impressed with Crabb at all last season, but still, good for Jeromy.
    - Goodson #2 at RB. I would've guessed Creer and Abron would be ahead of him based on practice reports and such.
    - WR is looking as awful as ever.
    - Hopefully Nembot, Mustoe, Irwin, and Cotner are ready to play. We're going to need more than our 5 + Dannewitz.
    - Not much surprising along the DL or LB. Good to see Washington listed at 220 already.
    - I wonder what this means with Hall being #2 at LCB. Is he first off the bench or is Yuri?
    - Mosley over Bell at FS. There had been pretty positive reports of Mosley, but that's pretty impressive, or Bell isn't back yet. Going with Mosley is just that impressive, though.
    - Surprising to see Mosley and Abron over Thomas and Crawley for kickoffs. Thomas being 4th on PR I'm thinking that means he's not very sure handed.

    We must like 250lb defensive ends.

    WTF is Clay Jones??

    AT COLORADO: This Season (Fr.-RS)-Enters the fall listed third at the mike inside linebacker position.

    HIGH SCHOOL-As a senior, he was named first-team All-Western Catholic Athletic League by the Palo Alto News, the San Jose Mercury News and the league's coaches; he also served as a captain in the Charlie Wedemeyer All-Star Game. As a junior, the Los Altos News named him the top newcomer in the WCAL. As a senior, he recorded 100 tackles with four quarterback sacks, broke up seven passes and had five forced fumbles playing inside linebacker. His junior campaign, he had 50 tackles with a pair of sacks, three pass break-ups and two forced fumbles. He also played fullback and was a long snapper. He had over 200 tackles playing on the junior varsity as a freshman and sophomore. Under coaches Mike Mitchell and Nick Navarro, St. Francis compiled a 15-8-1 record (9-4 as a junior, 6-4-1 as a senior) in his two seasons on the varsity and advanced to the CIF Central Coast Section championship game his junior season, a moment he lists as the biggest of his prep career. He also lettered four times in lacrosse, named an Adidas All-American as a senior, and also played basketball.

    ACADEMICS-
    He is undecided on his major at Colorado.

    PERSONAL-
    He was born May 28, 1993 in Palo Alto, Calif. His hobbies include white water kayaking and he has volunteered as a basketball coach for the Special Olympics. An older brother, Colin, plays club lacrosse at Arizona.

    Not wild about the idea of Crawley returning kicks. Hate it when starters do that

    Should we consider Bell a safety now?

    A little disappointed in Keenan Canty. I thought he looked explosive when he had the ball in his hands last year.

    Clay Norgard redshirt?

    Thought the freshmen TEs would be higher.

    All in all, that offense looks.....errrrr....less than potent....


    May be drinking the koolaid, but I think our front 7 (dare I say entire defense?) looks as good as it's been in a while.

    That would seem to be his best shot at seeing the field barring injuries at corner.

    Yeah. I'll update the roster in the recruiting forum with Bell at safety. I don't think I moved J-Thomas to a grayshirt either.

    Based on the losses at WR and the depth chart that was released, I think we'll see Darden graduate after this season. He was just never the same after the broken fibula and torn ankle tendon he suffered in high school. Junior year film was pretty sick.

    I totally forgot that it was Plati who puts these things out. That explains it all. He's math challenged.

    Out for the first two games indefinitely? Not an English major but I don't think that makes sense.

    I think both cubuffs.com and daily camera both said 'out at least 2 games.'

    Funny that you compiled a list of roster surprises. I did something similar when I perused the "official" chart.

    #2 LG Jeromy Irwin, Fr -- I'd like to think this speaks more about what he's done than the possible lack of depth at LG

    #2 LDE John Stuart, Fr -- I saw a couple of his hs games on tv; he made a lot of plays. But this really caught me off guard.

    #2 RDE Kirk Poston, Soph and #2 RDE Samson Kafovalu, Fr -- We've heard good things about Samson, but has Poston finally figured things out?

    #1 LCB Kenneth Crawley, Fr and #2 LCB Jeffrey Hall, Fr -- wow! (another note on Hall, below)



    Yeah, really. It also appears that true frosh Jeffrey Hall has lettered as well ......... twice! This kid can move!

    Why? Chris Hudson did it, Rocket Ismail did it, Dave McCloughan did it, LaMichael James did it, Devin Hester did it, DeAnthony Thomas does it. You put your best guys back there for that. Thats what the elite teams do.

    Uh, yeah, they do. But they also have the depth to withstand some injuries. Count me as one who's concerned that KC might be the starting PR.

    I'm not concerned at all with Crawley returning kicks. Special teams is a huge part of every football game. You need game-changers there just like you need them on offense and defense. This is one of the things DII couldn't ever figure out and it hurt - a lot.

    Much rather take this risk than have walk-ons who run a 5.5 40 in the return game like we had under the last guy.

    I have no real issue with KC returning kicks, but we better have options behind him. Part of the issue the last several years has been it seems about two guys on the entire team can return kicks.

    Maybe the Bears shouldn't let Devin Hester return punts. They should probably make sure to save him for WR since they'll be down one when Brandon Marshall gets in trouble the next time.

    A game breaker needs to be on the field whenever possible. I'm not saying that Crawley fits that profile, but the coaches have obviously seen something from him and must really trust him since he's a true freshman.

    I'm usually fine with any player back returning kicks as long as it's not a starting QB (risk of having to completely change the offense) or RB (don't want to waste energy).
