    In that regard, I think Pagan may see more PT than usual in this game.

    I feel football smart now, I voted for Hubbard before reading your post.

    Id say fluker and steen. I believe nd thinks they are a weak spot. Yes lacy will get a bunch of yards and be named mvp but he'll hand it over to fluker and steen. We are going to have to tackle well if we are going to win this game. No shoulder bumps no arm tacklng.

    I think they were practicing DJ Pettway at Jack LInebacker... so I would say.. it's possible that LBs will have great game.

    I love the play of Norwood--the true hero of the LSU game in my mind. This time with the focus on Coop, his stepping up will be big and will get noticed!

    I voted Norwood, but I'm not sure how he could be a lurker after the role he played in last years game.

    How about Vinnie S.

    I voted for KN too. We're gonna need another receiver to step up and take some of the pressure off of Cooper and Norwood seems logical after what he did last year.

    On defense, Adrian Hubbard has the tools to be a big factor in putting the heat on Golson.

    I say Adrian, he could get some great pressure on their QB. Maybe cause a fumble or two.

    Aint it just unreal depth that we can have about 15 different players that "could" be the difference in the game? Good times baby, good times these are.
