He must think these freshmen & redshirt freshmen groups have a lot of good young players, especially defensive players. I sure hope that's the case because we will need several freshmen (redshirt & true freshmen) to step up in a big way for us to have a season similar to last season.

Here are some of our young defensive players to keep an eye on:

FR-RS CB Darnell Walker Jr.
SOPH. S. Michael Mudoh
SOPH. CB Darrell Williams
FR-HS DT Jesse Brubaker
FR-HS DT Lionel Phillips
FR-RS DE Cory Rahmings
FR-RS DT Jerry Uwaezuoke
FR-HS S Joe Bean

Walker and Bean are gone along with Dalton R. Thats a lot of ability gone from the program. I hope they weren't thinking TU was a sinking ship.

RE: Tulsa Football
The real problem with the football team. Is that the first team equivalent is gone. Just a few years ago most of the current offensive starters would have been at worst third team bench, at best second team. This team will have to play nearly flawless to hit 10 wins. Play at a good level to win six. If this years hurricane offensive flavor can play together, they at least have a chance. If not then there is always round-ball. 03-yawn03-yawn03-yawn

IMO we were a completely different FB team from then to now (I assume you mean during the TG years).

TG, a defensive coach, gave up huge chunks of yardage most games, but the offenses he "allowed" were much more dynamic leading the country in that category.

BB, an offensive coach with a very vanilla offensive structure, has really hung his hat on defensive success. Its a complete about face from the TG days.

What I wish we'd do is have the best of both worlds - a dynamic attacking offense that is big play capable and a defense that is solid and well coached like we have now.

I think both TG and BB have strengths and weaknesses, but neither can coach QBs at this level, nor should they be forced to, IMO.

I don't think BB was forced to coach QB's. In my opinion he wanted to.
