    1. How do the players respond to the new coaching staff? Do they buy-in?
    2. Does Prich return to previous form?
    3. Who do we have on Defense, who is our best defensive player?
    4. How does our OL shape up? Does Nembot make significant enough strides to be an every-down type of player?


    When writing #3, I was pretty stumped to find an answer. Seriously, who is our best defensive player?

    I think Brady Daigh is going to surprise and 1 of all those DL recruits from last year will step up. Yuri and Crawley will be better and more reliable. I am anxious to see the QB battle..

    yea we will have like 7 in one corner of the field - unless a couple switch to another position

    Webb
    Wood
    Hirsch
    Dillon
    Schrock
    Dorman
    Sefo

    am I missing anyone? Now that you see it, that is nuts.

    I hope Sefo can skip 3 weeks of school so he can participate in the practices.

    Mine:

    1. Who is the QB? Who leaves?
    2. Do we have any real depth at offensive tackle? With Lewis out, some players will get every opportunity to shine.
    3. Who is the 2nd WR?
    4. Which sophomore defensive tackle is ready to step up? Tupou played the most as a true freshman, but played less than 350 snaps.

    Will we have enough healthy players to actually conduct a real Spring "game"?

    For Spring I am interested to see how things shake out at RB. Thought Abron showed some good stuff last year so excited to see if/how he matures. How/where Powell will be used. What Payne brings to the table.

    In the Secondary I have a lot of young guys so interested to see who steps up

    A lot of young/new faces on the DL. I think McCartney is underrated so intersted to see if he can push for playing time. Happy to see the toher grayshirts as well.

    Be interesting, with the rumblings of position switches, to really see what the post spring depth chart looks like.

    There is one question that matters so much more than all others that it's really the only question:

    Do we have a QB who will win games for us?

    I wonder about Tupoa's health. The defense was much better in the Utah game until he left with his injury.

    Solis is the guy I was most worried about. That was a neck injury, right?

    I haven't heard anything about either of them. I hope they are both a) healthy and b) able to play.

    I don't think you will get an answer to #1 until you are into the next season.

    #1 for me is will someone rise up at the QB position. I would love if they came out of spring with a QB firmly in the #1 role. I was worried after last spring when Wood could not nail down the spot when he was getting all of the reps.

    #1. Will over 8,000 show up to watch?

    #2. Is there enough depth to have a real scrimmage, or will it be a glorified practice?

    #3. Does Josh Ford run for more yards and TDs than any other RB

    #4. Will any QB get more than four drives?

    Questions for Spring Ball

    "In what manner will BuffNut disrupt and get ejected from the Spring Game if J. Webb gets a significant number of snaps at QB?"

    Will Dillon take control?
    Will some young WRs emerge?
    Will team chemistry gel?

    The same question I've been asking for years, do we have a legit football team or not?

    Although with all the journalistic hype in the off season where everyone is a star in the making, we won't know the real story till 8/31.

    I thought Crawley was leaving the program. Wasn't he bitching about how much he hated CU on Twitter last month?

    So are we assuming Yuri and Crawley are sticking with us now?

    We're not assuming the alternative.

    I doubt we hear anything at all until after spring practice since TunaMac declined to entertain requests until then.

    Perfect answer. I think the bigger question is who won't hack it around here long term. Some of the Embo recruits were treated special.

    I'm confident there will be a level playing field starting a month ago and it's team first. Let's see if everyone can deal with that.

    Mostly hoping to see a clear #1 QB and PRich looking close to pre-injury form. I am good with watching shootouts all next season.

    At least it would make the games more exciting.

    It seems like we have been stuck with Bernard Jackson's gameplan for the past decade.
