[Bryan Fuller]

Things discussed this week:

  • Ed and Craig backpedaling on whether Hawaii is any kind of good.
  • Is UCF any good? They have a DT and some cornerbacks. No.
  • Gary was disappointingly held a lot.
  • Linebackers, especially McCray are a pleasant surprise.
  • OL shakeout: Kalis X factor, Kugler bigger threat to Braden than Bredeson, Bredeson is a threat to Newsome. Newsome is alright.
  • Chris Evans: pleasing running back.

  • Linebackers will be iffy to start; how much do they come along?
