|2 years 31 weeks ago||I think Hawthorne looks solid||
Posted this in the other spring game forum, but I think Hawthorne looked good there near the end. Big hit, one handed interception, goaline tackle. Looked solid even with one arm wrapped up. RBs look good. Wile made a medium length field goal, but what can you really say with so few attempts?
I thought our front 7 on D didn't play so well early on, but it got a little better as the game progressed. We need better snap exchanges; two on the ground today is bad. We didn't get to see much of the WRs. Gibbons push that one field goal wide, again just one play, doesn't mean this is necessarily a problem.

Hawthorne looked good there near the end. Big hit, interception, goaline stand. Solid.

Burlon has been solid, even in previous years.

What is this talk about Scooter flirting with being on the second line? Haven't the first two lines been typically something like this--
Rust, Hagelin, Lynch
Louie, Wohlberg, Brown?
And I agree Glendenning isn't super amazing, but he's pretty good for what he is. He doesn't make mistakes, he skates hard, etc. Isn't that basically what we want in a 3rd liner?
Secondly our defense is disappointing. Red hasn't riden one goalie like he normally does. Hunwick at his best is pretty good and Hunwick performed well when we needed him to last year. However we need to focus on Hogan. Goalie is a position where the player needs to be consistent rather than amazing in short periods. There was a reason Hogan was our starting goalie, and why he had so many consecutive starts. Secondly the graduation of Kampfer and Summers was tough, and our defense is really thin. I would consider easily Burlon and Patteryn as our best defensive defensemen. Langlais is decent offensively, and his skillset is there, he just makes so many mistakes. Moffie is like Langlais without the upside. Llewellyn is okay.

Thank God the Big Ten didn't push for 9 conference games in 2012 as well. This is looks to be one of the toughest schedules already.
