Offense - AA and JA, an amazing combination of speed and strength, Apollo and Thor (way cooler than the thunder and lightning thing, I know)

 

Defense - Maurice Richardson, who I believe will become a dominant linebacker when we switch to a 3-4

I have to go with fan and irish here I mean zbikowski has a lot to prove for his draft chances to increases and i mean i got to put mu hopes that jimmy clusen is a break out player cuz if he doesnt i dont see us winning more than 7 games and if hes going to have a good year we need big games by some of the freshman at reciver and some of the guys that didnt get much play time last year such as gullop....but i think a very big impact player next year is the guy that got hurt i know hes still got a lot of rehab to go through but D.J. Hord is my man here i think hes going to step up a lot for clusen at first i didnt think clausen could get the starting spot but after that all american game i think hes a shoe in.

i dont know about prince i mean i would think he would fit at wr. more than runningback because i just think hes a little to small and not bit enought to keep up with JA and Travis Thomas

If Carlson stays healthy, he will be the best tight end in the country...and of course a great tight end is a QB's best friend so hopefully Clausen can be decent throughout the year as well lean more on the running game even without Darius.

 

I got a feeling about Allen stepping up and making an impact somewhere, hopefully DJ Hord can come back from his injury and be big, David Grimes showed a lot of promise near the end of the season dont know if hes #1 receiever material though. Travis Thomas and JA have to be big for us, and I think with Thomas' expierence he will be the starter and will have a great season. Id like to see what Greg Little will be able to do as well.

 

On the defensive side of the ball, I have to go with Zibby, he had a very dissapointing year, and I see him looking to improve greatly and be an impact player for us again in 2007. Richardson and Smith, I see both of them starting and making a good impact with Crum at Linebacker. And as he has done in the past I expect Trevor Laws to be our anchor on the defensive line.

Is zibby not gonna be our punt returner next year?

I think on offense it will be munir, cuz he changes the pace of the game cuz he is fast as hell, and Aldrigde is a beast. On defense it will be mcneil and walls, i just like their talent and this year they have a shot since Minter just benched them cuz he likes experience over young raw talent.

if you think Allen is going to be good...i dont know, i just feel that last year at this time everyone was saying the same things about Prince as theyre saying now about Allen. I know Allens ranked higher, but what do rankings show?

we all took Walker for granted. He was so money catching passes out of the backfield. The few times Prince and Aldridge were thrown to it was like watching middle schoolers. It may have been a timing issue with Brady but nonetheless it was ugly. Hopefully they improve their hands and routes.

breakout players will be Frazer, jc and the entire offensive team, on defense if they move zibby and coach brown finds a safety were going to be a hell of a good team , we got charlies fellas involved this year and they will produce more and mot as the season goes along. go coach brown , get them young horses trained in a hurry as we are getting speedier as we win games . go irish :D :D

I dont know, last year i thought munir would be awesome! But it turns out he cant block nor can he catch the screen effectively like walker. When I see Allen, i cant believe he runs a 4.31 40 according to rivals. That is unbelievable, since reggie bush ran a 4.4 40. The only problem is that he had an injury last year, I dont know if it will effect him for the rest of his career or will he regain his speed?
