    It is mindboggling that UT has only one senior who is a sure bet to start in Poona Ford. Foreman, Hall, Nickelson, and Hughes are nice guys to come off the bench for +/- 10 plays each and perhaps one or two will develop into starters. However, this is an amazingly bad streak for seniors. I really look forward to next year when a senior class will be the backbone of the program for the first time in what seems like forever. I must admit that I am happy to see a really good junior class. Almost unbelievable that the offensive line will be stacked with juniors and seniors next year regardless of what Williams does. Defensive line could be a big problem next year if Nelson becomes great and goes to NFL. Trying hard to drink the Kool-Aid this year, but I just do not see a good/great season with the lack of seniors and QB depth. I like to oversimplify...entire season depends on Maryland game. They are a decent team that UT must beat in order to gain some confidence. Win and the team is 9-3, lose and the team is 5-7. I am really happy that Maryland is at home and I hope it is hotter than hell. If so, UT can pull off a good win and good season.

    Hey, while you are in the area, can you take care of that NK nut?

    Last year it was juniors and seniors, so this shouldn't be that big a shock.

    Are we so sure that Armanti Foreman won't be starting? He started 17 of his last 18 games.

    Not sure about any of the guys. Point is there is only one guy we are sure of in Poona.
