Wow. Cefalo over Gray? I'll just give the coaches the benefit of the doubt.
On Saturday, 'Nik was speculating that we'd be surprised by WR.
He got that one right. Wow.
Also, we're now apparently a 3-4 defense.
the defense is in a 3-4. i thought we were doing at 4-3
Matt Bahr the #2 TE?
Poremba listed above Kasa at DE?
PRich and Speedy fielding punts - color me concerned
Sandersfeld/Henderson at CB...
before camp i would have been surprised to see Lockridge and Kasa so low. Prich returning punts could be Ben Kelly-esque, one hopes.
First surprise: Guess who is co-starter at the X WR spot?
And Cefalo has been backing up Prich for a while now... I think Gray has the nod when we go to a 3 WR set (notice, no 3d wr listed)
McCulloch is the co-starter with Clemons? Wow. Darden must be tripping on his crank, because I would expect he'd be in a position to contribute. He's basically 9th out of 9 receivers on the depth chart.
The more I look at it, the more I think that we're going to look like a 4-3. Jack Linebacker (with Hartigan, Goldberg and Parker) will be a DE position and the LDE (Pericak, Cunningham) will be a DT-type position.
Remember when everyone said AB was crazy for saying we were going to a 3-4? :lol: AB, where the scooop is.
Seriously though, this is super weird. We have been lining up with 4 down the entire camp iirc.
The Spring Depth Chart said 4-3, clearly a change has been made.
Also Kasa 3rd Right DE, was hoping to see him move up this year.
That looks 3-4ish in name only. The guys listed as the Jack LB are basically what we have used as DE. I assume that just means that they will occasionally rush standing up.
This. Best WR and RB.
Daigh at the number 2 spot.
like when Hagan returned punts for Mac?
Clarification on the 4-3/3-4
The coaches are now listing the base defense as a 3-4, instead of a 4-3 which has been in place at CU since 1995; the Buffs last lined up in the formation in Bill McCartney’s final year as head coach in ’94. A newly-titled position, “jack” outside linebacker, now complements the two inside linebacker spots (“mike” and “will”) and the opposite outside one (“sam”). Josh Hartigan is the jack OLB, with the former defensive tackle now becoming left defensive end and is manned by Will Pericak and Curtis Cunningham. Conrad Obi (nose tackle) and Chidera Uzo-Diribe (right DE) are slotted next to the left end.
Re: Punt Returners... I bet speedy at least drops off that list.
Also, apparently Clemons is seroiusly in the dog house....
and re the "3-4"
and for nik, Nickle to get a try at kicking!
Yep, Kasa at #3 shocked me. Super disappointed about that
I like having the best players doing punt returns - especially PRich. Our RB isn't quite as deep though, dont want anyone taking cheap shots on speedy.
Same here. I'd hate to see either get hurt. Especially Speedy.
What a bummer about Kasa. Not like we get a ton of 5* guys, to have it not panning out and him buried on the depth chart is a major disappointment. I support the risk of PRich returning punts. Speedy? Not so much.
May be just a motivational tool. Who knows. I hope to see plenty of Kasa this year. Lord knows we need that kid to step up.
****, I'm going to have to make a lot of changes to my NCAA '12 Roster now.
I'm surprised to see Kasa #3 on depth chart behind Poremba on the defensive end. What's going on with Nick?
Blake Behrens is another lineman taking a back seat. Both should get PT this year.
It's good to see B-Lock #1 for Kickoff Return, which makes him Hawaii bound. Let's hope that means his ankle is solid. Lockridge at #4 RB says something about the progress of Jones and Ford. Having P-Rich and Speedy fielding puts makes me a little nervous. Let's see the playmakers make some plays without getting creamed.
Are the snappers and centers going to do the Buffs right? Munyer, Handler and Iverson haven't won me over yet.
These guys worry me more than the defensive backfield.
does Kasa still have his red-shirt?
Returning punts is Speedy's ticket to the league. Not saying he can't play RB in the NFL, but, just like his position coach, he'll add value as a returner.
keep in mind Kasa was out of spring ball with a knee sprain. He's had to play catch up some and it may also be a motivational tool. Sure is in stark contrast to the piece BG Brooks wrote last Thursday though.
I said it awhile back but we have to have our playmakers on the field making...well...plays. Most teams have a starter (DB, RB, WR) at these positions. That said if Goodson can return punts I'd be all good with that.
Interesting that Brunette and Dorman don't appear on the depth chart.
