    Default Training Camp

    I figured we might as well start a thread for camp and all of the preview articles that are to come.

    We are only two and a half weeks from camp starting. I put together some thoughts and questions I have going into it.

    That was a good article, really appreciate the work you put in. My biggest questions for me is how are we going to be at the DT position and how well do we do replacing Onesorge. IMO those two things will be the difference between this team being good and great.

    I'm hoping DTs are at least serviceable, because our DEs have a chance to be really good, but that won't mean a thing if we can't stop early runs and force late passing downs. Speaking of which, I want to see if Callendar can find a way to stay on the field, because it seems like he's got the physical attributes and the motor to be a really special player. I'm also definitely looking forward to watching Earith, Smenda, and Kern continue to develop, and see if Tolu can get on the field at DE (or maybe DT?).

    DTs: Krockett and Xavier will be solid. I think Stacker will be better and Hilldahl had a really good camp last summer before getting hurt the week of Duquesne. He never seemed right after that. Weíll see I guess.

    Center: I trust Genant to be fine. Heís so intelligent and has the bulk to hold up. Pretty amazing this is his 3rd position in 3 years. Iíd be more concerned if we were leaving it to Domandle and Boen to battle for but having Genant there erases most of my concern.

    This team is definitely not as talented as last year. If so then the freshmen and red shirt freshmen class is better than last years seniors, not. The rest of the players were on the team last year so talent isnít close when you have a very talented senior class graduate. The team might have more depth but then the recruiting is getting better. Depth means players must step forward and show their talent or it will be a mediocre season.

    The health of the team will be very important just like any year. The OL must stay healthy and gel to be very good. Replacing LT and C will be a challenge. Tiano must be ready, healthy and lead this group. Can Genant stay healthy and is he athletic enough to fit the center position. I believe Boen is out again with injury. Genant wonít wow you but should be consistent.

    Jesus man do you think anyone on the team is worth a hoot?

    I noticed a few new faces on the roster including the transfer from NC St. Also a LB who redshirted at Texas Tech a year ago.

    Kyle Andersen is son of Chad Andersen who played at USD and believe was from Mitchell and now resides in Texas.
