Yeah, we will see about Rademaker. I saw him quite a bit over the past two seasons in HS, boy he is quite a talent and I was extatic when he signed with WIU because I know some big schools were looking at him seriously including Illinois and I thought for a while he may go to ISU but WIU jumped in late. I know he wanted to have a chance to play and going to a big school leaves you at a 50/50 situation and coming to WIU, he will play and have the same shot as moving to the next level. I hope to see Akers, I was not too impressed with Hall last season and Gray was a Frosh so he can only get better. I guess once again this season WIU is very deep at alot of positions and I expect to see rotation on the lines as last season, it really makes a difference in crucial situations. I am a bit concerned with the depth at QB, I noticed McAdams is gone(why) and I thought he was great security for WIU. Even with the depth at DB, I still feel the loss of Irish will hurt this season. With the wealth of potential WR's, I wonder what happened to Ike Roberts the trans. from Maryland last season. My biggest worries are still at Punter and TE, who will step up? I saw a couple of practices and the Frosh. punter did not impress me, his kickoffs were poor and his punts were far from what I expected. I expect Langan to kickoff but if his leg can be saved for only field goals he will be successful again. Too much wear on him with soccer and double duty on the FB field could cost him a potentially great season. We will see come Thursday.

Hey, don't worry about the Coffee kid, he is the real thing!! I saw him a couple of times up here in the suburbs and he can boom punts and kickoffs. Scifris was definitely special. Hopefully Coffee will get more confidence as the year goes on and we won't need so many game saving kicks from our endzone. Think McAdams left because he felt like he had no chance. Burks is the back up and he is now in his 3rd year after having redshirted as a freshman. He will be ready when called on just like Michna was. The new kid from Kentucky is also really something. He runs and throws well. Bet we don't see him this year. Think Patterson is into 3 years to develop and 2 years to play. Not a bad way to go really!
