Huge Position battle on the horizon

This break in basketball seems to have come at a perfect time. Build on a three game win streak with some good practice, possibly get some guys healthy (and slim), but most importantly it lets HCCS and company shine in what has been an unprecedented recruiting haul for UL. With all the progress and success the underclassman had on the field last year, you know this incoming class should be licking their chops at a chance to win/take over a starting role. New LBs Keith Brown, Burgess, and Dawson will be looking to steal PT from Preston & Daniel Brown (geez, "Tackle by Brown" will be called a lot regardless who plays) and guys like Holliman will be looking to share the secondary with the likes of Smith, Pryor, etc. But the most heated battle I can identify is going to be on special teams. With Chris Philpot gone, some young man is going to have to step up and make a name for himself. I am kind of half joking with the lead in to this, but in all seriousness, kickers are generally the leading scorers and I am a little nervous that our most inexperienced postion is one of the most important on a football team. We've got a Special team roster full of guys most have never heard of besides of Nakatani. Most only know of him because of his father's success on the race track and because he's a local kid. Then we have Web design sensation, Joshua Appleby (#30 K by the four letter), coming in who definitely passes the look tests at 6'2" 235 lbs., who could cease the opportunity in front of him. Just doesn't seem that long ago that the great Art Carmody finished his brilliant career @ UL to go on exploring his Cafe dreams and the following year we endured a season of missed field goals, missed PATs, and PJCS's crowds roaring when the kickoff actually stayed in bounds. I'm totally stoked about the 2012 football season. The cards are poised to bring back the BE crown to the Derby city where it rightfully belongs. I just hope that our kicking corps have a very competitive attitude going in to spring ball, and when the badass HTML producing kicking sensation from Athens, GA graces us with his presence for summer camp, the battle heats up to Elisha Justice hot proportions. Lastly, I pretended I was going to the bathroom and wrote my first Fanpost. Go Cards!
