2012 UB Football Prospectus is out, whats inside?

Just a few Quick thoughts from the Media Guide. I will have more after I dig into it more thoroughly.

Low on returning Skill High on returning Beef

Seven offensive starters return this season and four of them are linemen (Jasen Carlson , Andre Davis, Gokhan Ozkan, and Graham Whinery. If UB can find a suitable replacement for Matt Ostrowski this could be the best line the Bulls have had in some years.

Things look different among the so called "skill positions" UB returns tight end Alex Dennison, wide receiver Alex Neutz, and offensive record setting running back Branden Oliver. But that's it. Both the Quarterback and the bulk of our receivers are all up in the air.

Balanced losses on defense:

The defense is also only down three starters but unlike the offense graduation did not beat up on any unit worse than the others. The defensive backs return Isaac Baugh, Najja Johnson, Cortney Lester. The linebackers are led by Khalil Mack but also returning are Lee Skinner and Jaleel Verser

The Defensive line may struggle to replace Ritchie Smith but the Bulls do return Colby Way and Steven Means.

Nowhere to be found:

Jeffvon Gill has apparently left the program. Someone commented on it yesterday and he is absent from the spring media guide. James Pott's, however, is listed and still on the roster.

UPDATE: According to some UB fans in the know Potts wont practice due to a violation of team rules

One more shot:

Jerry Davis is still listed as a Quarterback, I had thought that maybe he might get shifted out to a receiver slot. We are thin on experience and if nothing else Davis knows the offense. He is a senior and will have to try and unseat Junior Alex Zordich or freshman Joe Licata.
