I would have to say i'm not worried about Hill playing QB for us at all, from everything I've been hearing he's going to do great it seems. I'm more worried about the kicking situtaion. If I have to watch repeatedly over and over a Kicker kick it out of bounds on the kickoff, or the missed field goal attempts it's going to be another long season.

Hopefully the kicker we signed is a keeper. Last year the kicking game was a huge flaw of our team.

you figure having WR as a big need, we would have tried to get Butler instead of these JUCO kids. I hope the JUCO kids are successful but I got a feeling Butler will be a man among boys in FCS. He was a top 100 recruit out of high school, and was just caught in the depth chart because USC has the cream of the crop in skill positions like Freshmen ALL AMerican Robert Woods.
