and John Z (from traverse city, mi.) is obviously not coming back after his academic problems. that's a blow because he was clearly our best lb. anyone know what happened to him ? he clearly could have played his final eligibility year at a lot of places.

JMO - He made tackles but he also missed a lot of tackles and seemed a step slow. I could be wrong, but I think the PL only allows a 5th year for medical reasons, so maybe that's the reason he didn't come back for a 5th year.
Has anyone else noticed that we are down to ten linebackers on the roster and that two of them are converted DB's
I have noticed that there are 10 LBs on the roster, including Brett Laurie who was an RB last year before being converted to a DB and now to an LB. I believe he was initially recruited as a DB. However, I believe there is an 11th LB -- frosh Thomas Hewitt is listed as a DL but he was recruited as an LB and by size seems more like an LB.
