First take. Marcus Coleman should not be on that list. Tyrell Sutton is way to low. If he stays healthy, he is top 15.

Brad said...

Yeah, I thought Coleman was just a guy. Maybe not. Can you really have a kicker #22?

matt said...

I thought Curtis Painter was too low. I bet Purdue is good (or..better) this year.

matt said...

By the way, why are there 12 helmets in that picture?

The one on the left has a Big-10 logo on it.

matt said...

ah - it looked like Kentucky's helmet to me. I thought something happened that I wasn't aware of.

I like Coleman...he's a smart guy. Then again I compare him to D. Raoli who was a bag of shit.

Mehlhaff will win some ball games for us this year...the kick-offs are moved back 5 yards. A touch back has become a huge advantage especially w/ our D.

Ike at #1? I like it but it's kind of a surprise..then again Hart is #2 and he's pretty good but not #2 worthy I don't think.

James Hardy at #19? He's top 10 for sure. A great player on a miserable team.

PJ at 12? I guess. Let's see how he does w/o JT

I agree Sutton should be higher..or maybe that he carved up bucky a few times is why we think that?

Brad said...

I count 3 guys from Indiana (3 weapons, that is) and zero guys from Michigan State. Times have changed.

Train, where's your guy Hayden? He's a solid player.

Lorenzo White said...

Where's Tim Biakabituka?

Train said...

Chip- I was thinking that after I posted...Where was Hayden and Casillas? I guess there's only so many to go around but I'd take those two guys over a few on the list. Bucky's D will be ridiculous.
