    Strongest: Offensive Backfield, Defensive Backfield
    Weakness: Offensive Line (at this point it's the only obvious one)
    Just want to expand on this a little because I'm bored...

    Tim Tebow puts us in the best position of any team in the country at quarterback, considering the offense we run. He's a senior, the NCAA's best leader, and will be able to put the team on his back even if they're struggling. Then, we have Chris Rainey, Jeff Demps, Brandon James. All are perfect fits for the offense.

    I'm somewhat concerned about a pretty inexperienced WR corps... Deonte Thompson should explode, but Carl Moore and/or Riley Cooper will need to fill Lou Murphy's shoes. Debose and Thompson combined should be able to replace Percy's production, though they aren't Percy Harvin.

    The offensive line will have, I believe, 3 first-year starters. Carl Johnson, Matt Patchan, and one of the guards. The Pouncey twins will need to anchor things, but it's a line full of 5 star recruits, so if they can even come close to their potential, there shouldn't be a problem.

    The defensive front is the weakest part of the defense, and that's saying something considering it's anchored by potential first rounders Carlos Dunlap and Jermaine Cunningham. The variable will be the interior linemen, where it seems like Omar Hunter will need to step up, but don't count out seeing Torrey Davis back on the team.

    Linebackers... Brandon Spikes anchors things, and the outside linebackers are all on the same level more or less and will be rotated in and out to keep them fresh.

    The defensive backfield is the second strongest part of the team... Joe Haden and Janoris Jenkins are both probably going to be first round picks when they come out, and for good reason. They'll both be locking down receivers on the outside, leaving Major Wright free to roam and knock people the **** out, while Ahmad Black can play centerfield like last season.

      Maybe you should mention that the defending national champ Gators are returning all 11 starters on defense, so I'd say the whole defense was a strength.

        Strengths: RB, DL, LB

        Royster, Beachum, Shaine Thompson(looked real good in spring ball), and Stephon Green return to carry the load. Royster is the best RB in the B10 and could end up being one of the best in the nation. Green is the change of pace back and will provide excellent speed. Thompson and Beachum are tough runners who could come in late in games and get some carries.

        We lost Maybin and Evans, but we return Odrick. We have young, but very talented defensive ends. Devon Still FINALLY is healthy and I hope he can push for the starting job. Everyone watch out for Jack Crawford. He could be better than both Maybin and Evans.

        LB is always our strength. We have Bowman and Lee returning as our starters, and we have an up and coming star in Michael Mauti. I think we could have the best linebacking corps in college football. Mike Yancich is a guy to keep an eye on. He could fight for PT.


        Weakness: OL, Secondary, WR

        Although we are going to be young on the OL, it is weak because they are inexpierenced. I believe the current group could be better than our 08 line. DeOn'tae Pannell should man LT, Dennis Landholt at LG, Stefen Wisniewski at C, Matt Stankiewitch at RG, and I think Lou Eliades at RT. I could see 5* OT Eric Shrive fight for time at RT for Penn State his true Frosh year.

        Our secondary is inexpierenced coming into the season. Knowledge Timmons and AJ Wallace are the starting corners with true frosh Darrell Givens fighting for time as the third corner. We have a lot of youngsters at corner that could be fighting for time. Safety is another weak spot, but Drew Astorino and Gerald Hodges could be our starting safties and will be better than last year's crop.


        We lost three starters at WR last year, and that is going to be tough. Replacing them, we have Derek Moye, Chaz Powell, Graham Zug, Brett Brackett, AJ Price, and a bunch of freshman, Justin Brown, Shawney Kersey, and Derrick Thomas. I personally believe Powell will make the most impact on the offense, but our future is bright at WR.

            Yeah but we've lost a few on the defensive line. It's barely a concern, but it is one, considering the guys we have are somewhat injury prone.

              Scotty you forgot Witherspoon at LB. He transferred from Michigan as a 4* and I'm pretty excited to see him in action this year as well.

                damn, yes. How'd I forget him? we've got quite the dirty LB group. I think sadly, we're going to need some offense and field position from our D this year big time

                    Yes sir. Playing great D and running the ball down other teams throats is whats going to win us games this year.

                      weakness---oline, young but talented; starting lt donnie barclay played og last season (sparingly); had surgery to repair broken tibia, but should be back by beginning of july; soph og josh jenkins, played sparingly before getting injured (actually played in crucial situations); sr rt selvish capers is only returning starter (and he is shaky; has shown flashes); thats 3 that have experience

                      depth at rb---after devine, it's mark rodgers, then ??? more than likely incoming freshman shawne alston; ran for 2,000 in va last year, including 1,000 in the playoffs; at 220 lbs, the big back we need

                      unknown---qb; jarrett brown has the tools, and has waited 4 years behind pat white; big qb who can run when needed; very strong arm; hopefully he plays like he has the capability to

                      strengths---defense; return 3 starting dline (including 2 back-ups, and incoming juco de tevita finau); return 2 starting lb (reed williams missed last year and got med rs; pat lazear played a lot in his absence and moves to sam; jt thomas should be 1st team big east at will); secondary returns 4 starters (cb brandon hogan; fs eain smith---split time with robert sands; spur safety sidney glover is in his 2nd year as a starter, though got a lot of time as a fr; bandit safety robert sands split time at fs, but has been moved to bandit to be closer to the line, where his strength is)

                      this is a unit that was 35th overall, 9th in scoring, and 1st in red zone defense; should be among the countries best, with 9 out of 11 that have started, and another that got a lot of playing time; best thing is, we will only lose 1 starter after this year, meaning it could be even better in 2010

                            Pretty much any Wisconsin football team in recent memory. Brooks and Sorgi were solid but even John Stocco made too many mistakes to be considered a strong part of the team. Last year was so rough and if Dustin sees the majority of the snaps then the team is in deep trouble.

                              Strongest - run game, QB play, front 7

                              Weakest - Safeties

                                OL is the biggest question mark. I'd say DL is the strongest.
