Offensive Questions

Besides figuring out the QB position what other positions on Offense are there questions about going into this year?


  1. Well, clearly one is TE. We have a number of candidates but none has really distinguished themselves. I think 3 or 4 of them can play -- including the incoming frosh -- so sorting out that logjam will be challenge #1. And, it is really a two-step problem. First, who are the 3 or 4 guys that we think can play and secondly, what do we do with the remaining 4 or 5 that we do not think we can play. We just have SO MANY bodies at TE.

    A similar quandary exist at WR. The only thing that mitigates that situation is that we probably need about 6 guys rather than 2 or 3.

    The interior of the OL still has questions, but I think those will be resolved nicely.

    Lastly, we need to decide the RB rotation and decide which of the freshmen red shirt. We have 6 or 7 viable RBs, lead, of course, by Locke. So, it is a nice problem to have, but one that will need to be managed carefully.

  2. ^Couldn't have put it better myself.

  3. The adjustment of Moncell Allen switching from RB to FB. Not much depth at the FB position for the football Cats but I think Moncell is more than capable. Can't wait to see the Turtle blow some fools up!
