    I know its above and below the line

    Some of the starters are beginning to shake out

    The Oline would appear to be Quinney, Cooper, Minihan, Southers Defoor. Interesting to me that that 3 of these 5 know very little about.

    At wide receiver - Brown, Camp. Carter will be the primary catchers.

    At running back Mason, Jordan and red shirt freshmen can't remember his name with several running backs.

    Defense not as sure about but there have been reportsso many of the names of who will play are known. Relativelt a bunch of new names except for secondary.

    What I wanted to discuss is QB which I know has previously been discussed but is so important of position in college football that needs to b discussed again. Ken S. says it is probable that Lucas Johnson will start. He is probably right with more inside knowledge. I just believe strongly that Oliver will play some. If I were a coach, I would want to see him on the field to see if he can make the passes in this offense that are necessary. Why? Because I know this guy is a strong runner that was proved last year. He can break tackles and runs hard. Got to see what he can do.

    Based on what I saw in the spring game and open practice, my money is on Johnson to start. That being said, I would not be surprised to see Oliver and Graham get some game time action in the first few weeks to see what they can do.

    TO will play, sure, but from what I've heard I do not expect him to start immediately and if LJ stays healthy, I expect him to start all/ most of the year. But it will be interesting to see what happens at Clemson since it is such a difficult environment. Might go with TO because he at least has some experience.

    Also, I think Minihan has been working at G mostly. Some walk ons are getting a lot of reps at C and some of the Tackles will work at C because they are pretty interchangeable in Key's scheme.

    I think Christian Malloy will play a lot of RB this year.

    Liam Byrne is going to be above the line; hence he is guaranteed to get snaps. That's the way it works. Coach said so.
