I really really want to see Mark Herzlich play again, and I'm very excited for that this year. See him a lot in 2008, I'm excited to watch him become one of the best players in the 2011 draft. The guy is special.
I want to say GT will repeat their ACC championship, just as a homer pick, but I find that very hard to believe. Had their 4 juniors great stayed, it would have been a different story. Their defense is switching to a 3-4 after being god awful against the run in the 4-3. Could help or hurt, but it should be interesting.

02:40 <vidae> yay, hes gone

02:40 <vidae> aww hes back
God I hope Herzy comes back. I think they could win it on pure emotion next year if Herzy plays, he and Kuechly would be so insane together. Everything that could have went wrong before last season for BC did and they still defied the odds and had a very good year.
Shinskie is going to be good, probably won't ever be a pro prospect since he will be a 26 year old sophmore but he will be ready to go next year. Next Weinke maybe. Who will be catching his passes is a bit of a question mark, Colin Larmond and Clarence Megwa look to be the top two options but it gets hazy after there. Freshman Shakim Phillips will get looks as will Clyde Lee, big bodied Ifeyani Momah moved to DE so there is one less body there. Chris Pantale will be the top TE with Lars Anderson being an H-Back type.
Montel Harris is a beast of a running back, but losing Haden to transfer hurts. Need to come up with a dependable back up. James McCluskey is a great, tough FB who is very talented (converted LB). He'll play in the NFL somewhere.
The O-Line...well you already know. It is going to be another tough, physical, talented group headlined by LT Anthony Castonzo and G Thomas Claiborne. There are some holes that need to be filled, but BC is always ready on the OL.
As for defense, tackle Damik Scaife and end Alex Albright will lead the line. Austin Giles is a big body at the other end and Kaleb Ramsey is an athletic penetrator with lots of talent at the other tackle.
The linebacking corps is very talented, if Herzy comes back it could be the best group in the nation. Everyone knows what Herzlich can do, but Luke Kuechly looks like he will be a stud for a long time. Was one of the best freshman in the nation regardless of position last season. Someone will need to take over for McLaughlin, and it looks like Will Thompson will be the guy. Dominic LeGrande, Alex DiSanzo, and Nick Clancy all should see considerable time too.
The secondary is OK, corners DeLeon Gause and Donnie Fletcher are NFL type talents. Safety is a bit of a question mark.
I am an Ole Miss fan but I still follow BC, they are definitely my #2 team, and I think they have a chance to do big things next year and surprise some people. If Herzy comes back that will be one of the best sports stories ever.
