Sounds like Coach OBrien, Mauti and Zordich kept the team together, while the vultures were circling above trying to recruit some of the players. I was extremely surprised and happy that the Lions were 8-4 last year. Thanks to the Coach and the great players! May this year be even better!
They’ll be very good this year provided they can stay healthy. They can’t do full contact in practice, and they can’t miss on any recruits. The room for error is about zero.
Their 22 starters can play with anyone in the country (assuming good QB play). The depth - especially at LB - is going to be an issue.
The lean years are yet to come, unless the ncaa comes to their senses and puts a halt to the ridiculous sanctions.
