Detailed report by the The great oneMaybe D is going to be that great. I do think the defense is going to be very good this year.

I don't know the answer, I'm just asking that's all.

Peniel Jean has no problem with contact, even against some of UW's hard-running tailbacks. Definitely a physical CB.

Agree with a lot of this. I would lessen the enthusiasm some for the LBs. Good, with the potential to be the best. I wish some of the security at LB could be transferred to DBs. Trotter (S) gets a continuous earful from coaches about keeping contain, Caputo (in limited viewing) has a very natural feel for lanes and containment. I really hope the experience starts paying off for Southward and Johnson. Smart kids with lots of talent. The coaches were giving Hugs (in just a couple of practices witnessed) lots of reps considering his class standing. Peniel Jean has no problem with contact, even against some of UW's hard-running tailbacks. Definitely a physical CB.
Complete agreement on the OL. In fact I am surprised, in a small way, that fans have any concern about the OL. I suppose it stems from being spoiled and from some perceived drop off in 2011. I would contend that drop off was more a function of TE blocking than at OL. The OL is scary deep.
Tailback U to be sure, but I am not so sure we have 2 1,000 yarders, in no small part because #3 (Gordon) is so good he might push #2. Melvin has a willingness to drop a shoulder at the end of a run that is very reminiscent of Walter Payton.
I understand the hopes for Stave, but still think them misplaced. Great kid, great representative of UW (like just about all of the FBers you talk to) but, at the very least, it seems to me he is a year away from being able to lead a B10 championship team. He is still incosistent, though better.
Definitely need WRs to step up, and there are a few candidates. But I'd argue it is more important for members of the D-Line to move from average to above average. Several of them.

Thoughts this year. Should we expect an average unit again which puts pressure on the LBs and CBs? Our best teams have had atleast one outstanding DL player which helps to cover up a weakness somewhere else.
