Beyond the obvious QB concern, the defensive line could be a real issue. I realize the big 12 is a passing league, but if our front four gets pushed around it will be impossible to defend the good teams when they are running the ball at will.
I'm actually a bit optimistic about the DLine potential, with some of the new faces, and Scott having a year under his belt.
I read just today that Kyle Junior (Bowling Green DT grad-transfer) has put on 25 pounds working with glass and will likely stay inside at DT. Evers is solid now that he's healthy, and Antwine from Colorado started his freshman season in the Pac12.
SAMUELA TUIHALAMAKA redshirted last year and coach has said he's likely to see a lot of action at 6-2, 295. He played for national power Matre Dei for goodness sakes.
Antwine is 6-4, 295
Evers is 6-2, 295
and the two JC guys are
SIONE ASI 6-1, 325
AMADOU FOFANA 6-4, 280
It may be a work in progress, but that's 6 guys on the inside that could have an impact.
We've got a couple of guys at DE that should be solid, but could use a couple more, IMO.
My concern with the defense "making stops" has more to do with me still not being sold on the 4-2-5 alignment, than it has to do with the DLine.
