I'd like to see more in the secondary. Seems like the easiest place to lose guys to injury (seems like at least...can't back that or explain it). And most likely source of those temporary time-outs for targeting.

The Ric Flair pic is awesome. Especially seeing Bobby Henan. He use to come to the Hammond Civic Centers in Hammond, In. as a wrestling manager. I wonder if Nutt use to go to the matches. Dick the Bruiser and the Crusher use to beat him up all the time. He was the best at flying into the turnbuckles. He was a hated villain back then. That was back in the middle 60's.

I would like to see quality receivers, every year we seem to lose a couple of good ones

Totally agree. We have 3 seniors next year and then after that we are thin. Not a lot of outside guys other than Washington, Cambelll, Thompson. That’s why I’m shocked we’re not in on Jay Wilkerson, Savion Williams or Nasean Dickerson.
 
       
I am still wondering where our safety help is going to come from

If we move Nate Hobbs from the outside I am going to be assailing Lovie Smith on a real level.

So what’s gonna happen with mondesir or knight? I could see them transferring but I could also see them getting some snaps on special teams. Knight has like 10 career starts.

Fine with Martin moving to S. He has position versatilty and I think he'll be good at CB as well but offers a lot of potential at S as well. Hobbs no. You don't move arguably the best CB in the B1G and one of the best in the nation to S unless you want to do something crazy like Witherspoon, Beason, Hobbs, Brown (Assuming no Johnson and no impact S transfer).

Martin moved there late in the year. really struggled outside last year and didnt see the field much at CB late in the season.

He was there against MSU and looked utterly lost.

How did he handle safety?
 
       
C.J. was rated higher, but is Deuce a better fit for what Rod wants to run?
