I see in the Register Adam Carper is lost for the season with a knee injury. Any time you lose a player it hurts the team and you hate to see it happen for the player's sake, of course. But, which Cyclone starter would be the single biggest loss to the success of the team? Meyer is an obvious choice, but is the talent distance between him and Arnaud bigger than any other number 1 and the likely replacement?
Many people may disagree with this but I really think our biggest loss would be Stevie Hicks (after Brett Meyer). Sure Scales can run but Stevie can block like a mo fo. The other guys just don't have his pass protection ability yet. Just look at our record with and without Stevie last year.
The starting QB is always the obvious choice. While the talent level may not be much different the knowlege and experience of a veteran QB is huge.
If I had to pick someone else I would say Jackson or Curvey. Our secondary is very weak other than Jackson and after watching Nate Frerer or however you spell it get pushed around in the UNI game I think we would be really hard up if we only had him and Tuba to start.
Everyone else we could probably at least attempt to deal with since we have 3 defensive tackles that could play for Curvey and we have like 10 receivers who could play consistently so losing them wouldn't be huge and Jason Scales should be able to take over for Hicks
1. Alvin Bowen.
2. Tyrone McKenzie.
3. James Smith (we needed him yesterday)
We need tacklers really bad since we force so few punts and do not hit hard enough to get turnovers or poptop their helmets. So far the offense is less than 20 points a game in regulation.Defensively we are 25 pooints in regulation.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
This is way off topic but has anybody watched the cyclone-husker game from 2002 on www.cyclones.com. Holy smokes, I remember being at that game but that was one of the best games any cyclone team has ever played. If you got a spare hour, I'd definitely kick back and watch it.
