    You think Thomas is so good that he beats out Spruce?

    I would be surprised to see none of the Fr on the field as 'starters' against CSU. I think coaches usually like to play that pretty conservative

    My only disagreement is that spruce beats out McC at WR. Otherwise, Dead on.

    I wouldn't think the coaches would rush him back for CSU or even Sac State but I have a feeling we'll see him against FSU.

    That's a good guess. Other possibilities beyond Spruce atWR are Bonsu at DT and Dannewitz on the oline.

    Spruce is solid. I hope he is not riding pine.

    I like it, we return 17 starters in 2013 with better depth.

    Assuming this works out, we'll need to replace all of 4 starters in 2013. Man that could be a great year.

    I had the same question, then remembered the suspension, but couldn't Jeffrey be name the starter but be suspended? Talk about salt in the wound...

    I like your idea, z. Helluva motivational tool -- "Look, you would have been the starter in game one, if you hadn't screwed up."

    But by mid season, McC had flatlined. Who's to say that Spruce wouldn't have passed him on the depth chart if not for the redshirt he was wearing? And it's a new year. Listening to some of Embo's post-practice comments, I think Spruce will be a starter too. McC will get the other spot and G.Thomas will get in early. And he will score a TD.

    G. Thomas will be the first Buff to touch the ball this season, opening kick off and return it to the 40 or so.

    Nobody's returning nothing nowhere on kickoffs this year.

    No one disagrees with the projection that we have 1 offensive and 4 defensive starters that are seniors. Provided the younger players are athletic, still maturing and learning the position, this bodes quite well for the future.

    If teams are smart that is correct, but we are playing CSU.

    It'll be interesting to see if a) kickers can keep it OUT of the endzone or b) from kicking out of bounds for the most part this year.

    As long as our kicks can control themselves I will be happy.
