What you should have expected:
A Jeff Quinn depth chart has more "Ors" than the UB rowing team has "Oars". Some of these are understandable, some not so much.
It makes sense when you're talking about Ron Willoughby or Rudy Johnson. They are the second and third receivers behind UB's main aerial weapon.
Where it does not make sense is at Quarterback. Yes we have all heard how close the competition has been between Licata and Zordich but every time someone watches they say Zorfich is a bit more steady behind center.
The starters are all who you would have expected, maybe with the exception of Gordon at tight end.
The team is returning 18 starters, you should have expected a very similar depth chart to last season.
What you may not have expected
While the starters are all the same a lot of them have been shifted around.
Lee Skinner is on the other side of the interior and the offensive line is completely shifted around.
Coaching changes have a lot to do with this, especially on defense but it still seems a bit dramatic.
