2009 Outlook:    QB-FB-RB Returning - Good WR Group that needs experience - must replace 3 of 5 offensive line - need more depth in Offensive Line - Defensive line returns 3 of 4 - Linebacker core - Have good young players with Chad Bowen having most experience - Must replace secondary with exception of FS Austin Anderson - Young players must step up quickly with loss of 13 Seniors.
