I just don't see us going all the way without slipping up, too many new faces at key positions. However I don't see a game that I really think we will lose. Hmmm, I seem to remember a season that had the same feel as this one . . . now when was that????
The Super Sophs were new faces too. I think that a lot of kids who have been working hard the past two seasons, and watching the Bucks' chasing perfect seasons, BCS wins and national titles, are ready to make their own mark. Unlike others, I have not yet given up on Lydell Ross and Mo Hall. Both of these guys have given their all and played hurt, and will hopefully have a full healthy season this year. I like the bonds that are being formed among the young OL, and think that Nick Mangold is going to be a fine leader of that unit. I am also looking forward to watching Teddy G. ignite tOSU's return game, if he wins the spot.
My only fear is the punting game, but Tressel seems to be doing something right. Groom and Sander being among the nation's premier punters in back-to-back years is no coincidence. I'll be keeping fingers crossed that Trapasso can emerge as a Freshman sensation. Four more years with no punting worries would be golden.
I don't think we lose at NC ST. I voted for 0 losses.Our rb situation will be better than same time last year (Flydell,Mo H, Pittman,Haw,Joe,Kennedy or possibly Guilford), our lbs will be better (add Schlegel,Kerr,Lukens) true we lose WSmith but I think we have Frost,Patterson,Kudla,Smith or possibly D'Andrea,(one will step up between spring practices and game time) I think by having so much trouble with the line and running game last year, it will better prepare us for this year. Qbs won't have the experience, but will have better accuracy which will lead to better ball control and less 3s and outs.I expect RHall, Jordan,Gonzales, Lyons or Dukes to be a threat along with Holmes. All in all, I think many of the redshirts and a few freshmen will contribute tremendously.
I went with 11-1, simply because before the 2002 season I voted 12-2 and we went 14-0 (under-guessed by 2) and last year said 13-0 and we went 11-2 (over-guessed by 2). So, splitting the difference, I figure 11-1 is a safe bet. Just as long as we don't lose to Michigan, an 11-1 season will be excellent.
I changed the name of this poll to reflect its pre-Spring Game timing. I thought it might be interesting to do one sometime afterwards, and then one more in the Fall to see how and if we shift around a little bit.
Might make for an interesting time capsule, and add to the level of available discussion in terms of why people moved from X to Y.
eh, i vote 12-0, NCSU is good but i dont think they are quite to the elite level yet and our depth will show. i think we owe wisconsin bad and that game will be lots of fun, i will never go into a season expecting to lose to michigan, ill take tressel over anyone in a bowl game and by then our line and qbs wont be inexperienced, just talented.. leaving the only unaddressed threat as iowa.. well if thats the only one im worried about ill take my chances
Not trying to expose anyone here, just point out a feature. You can generally click on the number of votes in the poll itself to see who voted. It's an option when polls are created (to make the votes public), and one that I'm a fan of for the sake of promoting healthy convo and debate.
