Anyone else seriously worried about the DL next year?
We have to have Kirby Ennis and Obioha on the field next year. Gonna be a lot expected from the true fish, hope they can live up to the expectations.
Here is video from practice. Other than Ennis our size is no bueno.

Kirby and Julien will be back. Don't worry about them. Alonzo is just as physically capable of being successful as Spencer was last year. Polo and Points are undersized right now, so we'll see if they break the rotation this fall. We only had 1 rotation guy last year in Mathis, so adding Isaiah "The Beast from the East" Golden, Justin Manning, and Hardreck Walker can only help. Rush End is the biggest concern. The Taylor Twins either have to step up or Daeshon Hall is gonna have to bulk up this summer to be ready to go.
Dline is going to make us very offense-reliant next year. That's all there is to it. We don't want fish on the DL in the SEC, but it's unavoidable next year. I'm not sure Obioha will be back. Back injuries can be trixsy.
Maybe posting's just not your game. I know, let's have a spelling contest.
Agreed. I'm scared. I think we'll be fine at LB but we lack size, experience, and depth across the board on the DL. But this team is destined for great things and that means someone will step up in a big way on the DL. I also haven't ever heard anything positive about obioha's injury status.
Price and Sumlin have both said Julien will be back in the fall. They're just not going to put him through spring to give him more rehab time. Sumlin said "He doesn't have to prove his toughness to us. He started 12 games as a true freshman in the SEC."
Didn't we have this conversation last year about this time? And weren't we afraid of fish having to play? And didn't Snyder blow us all away? I think we have some residual BAS. Trust the cobra.
Exactly. If Julien Obioha can come in and play at a high level as a true fish in the SEC, you can't tell me 2 studs like Golden and Manning can't too.
Thanks. That makes me feel a ton better. I missed that tasty morsel of info somehow. Much appreciated.
