  1. How can Denard Robinson not be the most indispensible player on offense by every user? I love the mix between Mike Martin and Kenny Demens on the defensive side though. Shows the knowledge of the users.

    I would personally go with:
    Breakouts: Lewan & Cam Gordon
    Disappointments: Roy Roundtree & Campbell
    Indispensable: Robinson & Demens

    I give the nod to Demens over Martin because of depth issues.

  2. I can see how they feel Denard isn’t the most indispensable player, we are blessed to have 5-star Devin Gardner backing him with game experience to boot. How do you John have Roy Roundtree as a disappointment? I think he deserves the #1 jersey.

    I would go with: Breakout – Rawls/Campbell Disappointment – Shaw/Van Bergen Ill Afford To Lose – Molk/Martin.

    I’m a believer that lines make the difference and if it matters I believe if we lost Molk again it would crush the fanbase along with the psyche of the rest of the line.

    Go Blue!

  3. Mine would be:

    Breakouts: Shaw/Demens – Disappointments: Rawls/Ryan – Indispensable: Robinson/Martin

    I think a portion of the fanbase will be letdown by Rawls, but they shouldn’t fret, he is just a freshman, same line of thinking with Ryan. I believe Demens will breakout in the sense that he will play up to our expectations and lead the defense with Martin.

  4. Molk seems to be a popular response for most indispensable, but IIRC Khoury did a decent job filling in for Molk last season. And as for the reason I did not put Robinson as the most indispensable is because of Gardner, who many feel has a skill set that fits the WCO better than Robinson’s does. And since I didn’t give a player as biggest disappointment earlier, I will say Robinson will be because he will be hand-cuffed by Borges’ offense.

  5. Breakouts: John McColgan/Cam Gordon
    Disapointments: V. Smith/CB’s
    Indispensable: Robinson/Martin

    You guys know nothing. Starting fullback in this offense does everything – block, run, and catch bootlegs. Word from camp is McColgan is a beast. All our CB’s suck. Woolfolk constantly gets beat and releys on pure speed to catch up and make a play. Watch for B. Countess to get minutes before big ten season starts.

    Names to become familiar with: Nate Brink, Mike Jones, Je’ron Stokes
