11-06-08 Links and 11-03-08 CPJ Press Conference Notes

Notes from Paul Johnson's press conference on Monday (available on iTunes):

- 16 of 22 starters this week will be freshman or sophomores, not including the kicker.
- 13 scholarship seniors, 12 scholarship juniors.
- CPJ thought it may be a blessing. Easier to change the culture of the program.
- CPJ has been able to hold out the nucleus of true freshman lineman this year. He thinks that some of those redshirts may start next year, even though the incumbent may return.
- 4 Offensive lineman and 3 defensive lineman are committed for next year's recruiting class.
- Emery Peebles and Domonique Reese are both expected back for Saturday
- CPJ thought Michael Peterson played very well
- GT played more nickel than base against Florida State. He would expect more base defense this week.

It looks like Josh Nesbitt will play, Jahi Word-Daniels is out as Larry Hartstein writes:

Another A-Back on board for next year's class. Carver-Atlanta tailback Demond Dennis
