Hey other Hawk fans now that we have lost some seriously good players to graduation and the draft (S.Greene) ,but we still have some good recruits coming in like Keenan Davis out of Cedar Rapids, and Tyler Sash returning from a stellar season.
So where do we go from here? Will Jewel Hampton have a successful year like he showed glimpses of last year backing up All-American S.Greene, he seems like he will be pretty good for the next couple years, and what about Ricky Stanzi? Will he provide us with a good arm and smart thinking game in and game out?
We have a pretty tough conference schedule next year with games against Ohio St. and Michigan, and other consistent contenders like Wisconsin.
The defense was rather young in the linebacking core and secondary aswell with losing Fletcher to graduation, this year might be scary to watch. Tyler Sash should be a great player to watch with game-changing picks and consistent playmaking abilities like last year.
So where do we end up? Kirk Ferentz might leave with all the rumors going around with job offers for him on the next level. Will we contend for a conference championship or a BCS berth?
