Spring Battles 2013 Its almost that time of year again... as we approach the bowl games, and the offseason looms..... QB â€“ If Cosh stays our offense is dynamic, transfer Ranieri is the backup and considering Coshâ€™s injury history he is bound to see a few starts throughout the season .... Lee Tucker is the 20-20 guy (20-20 guy is if we are up 20 or down 20 in the 4th he will see the field).... HB â€“ Robinson is gonna get his feature role back, it is deserved, Ware goes back to being strictly a power back and end of the game closerâ€¦.. TE - Crowder is the man..... with Palmer and Tidwell as his backups our 2 tight end sets should be excellent next season. WR - Christensen and McDaniel will start with the two 6â€™4 WRs Larsen and Gray in the slotsâ€¦ needless to say we are excited about our 4 WR sets this upcoming season.... Offensive Line â€“ Allred mans the Left Tackle spot, with Marnier which will make the left side very solid..Holden started at center his freshman year but he is gonna get moved to Guard to allow Shelton to start at center. Our current Right guard the mammoth 6â€™7 Mitchell will move outside to his natural spot at tackleâ€¦. Defensive line -- LE Adam Davis is a stud, 8 sacks as a sophomore 10 sacks as a junior, His senior season could be really special, JuCO Ray Smith will come in and immediately, man the D Tackle spot at 6â€™1 324 pounds he should fit right inâ€¦.....the Right End spot is sophomore transfer stud Kyle Stanford spotâ€¦ he should fit right inâ€¦.. Linebackers At LOLB, Ferguson will return as the starter here.... At ROLB, Armstrong should start as he has played well this seasonâ€¦.. in the Middle.. Ray Adams will take over for Slaughter and the second MLB could be freshman Hamilton with his 4.46 speed or David Gray the current 3rd MLB on our depth chart. Secondary at safety, Freshman phenom Garner is a starter but we are not entirely sure which spot he will start atâ€¦ he has the size and speed to play wherever he wantsâ€¦...Fields should man the other spot, unless one of these athletes come in rated higher than Fields, Fields would essentially be a roverâ€¦..... At corner, sophomores Pennington and Barnes should starter but my current nickel back Mueller might steal one of those spots because of his coverage ability.... I am hopefully my 5 star athlete Benjamin comes in high enough to take over the corner role, but just in caseâ€¦ I have a decent amount of talent in the secondaryâ€¦.. Summary If the offensive line can come together and be a cohesive unitâ€¦.Kansas State can play with anyoneâ€¦the talent level at HB is very good and our WR core is young but they are talentedâ€¦ If they struggle again, 6-6 or 7-5 will more than likely be the end result for Kansas Stateâ€¦.. Defensively, our line should be very good, the best we have had so farâ€¦ our linebackers will be fairly young, but they should be good and our secondary is gonna be young but fastâ€¦. If they can gel, we could be very good defensivelyâ€¦.
