Are you ready for some football????

Spring practice starts Friday. That's right, and Reggie Ball looks to be the guy leading the way. But Taylor Bennet and Kyle Manley are looking to unseat the 2 year starter. Story here.

Also note that Mansfield Wrotto will be the starting offensive guard. I like that move:

Junior Mansfield Wrotto, who started 21 games at defensive tackle the last two years, has moved to offensive guard. Wrotto (6-3, 310) enters spring as the starting right guard.

Gailey said he asked Wrotto to make the move.

"He said 'Coach, whatever I need to do to help the team,' " Gailey said. "If he wants to play in the NFL, I think that would be his best spot. He has excellent short area quickness, excellent body control and he is a powerful man. Technique is going to be the biggest issue for him."
