    I'm sure they will, but I doubt they can play football well. :D

    Totally agree that depth/experience are important. I am more worried about depth.

    We have three RJR OLs plus one RSSR at the important center position. Having basically 4 senior OLs on your line (who already have a year in the new system) is not the same as no experience.

    Yes there are not a lot of returning starts but these are Upperclassmen who are not adjusting to college football and college life. Upperclassmen also have motivation because this is their last chance.

    On the depth comment we do have more of a concern as we need three freshmen to step up.

    Could not have said it better, bogey. Missed assignments have killed us in the past. Also, being unable to chip and go with perfect timing and all you mentioned makes me think the other fellow played through middle school.
    It is a team game.
