|Isaiah Pead last year vs UConn|
Isaiah Pead comes into the year after rushing for over 1,000 yards in only ten starts. Pead had limited rushing attempts many times last season with the Bearcats having to air out the ball when the 3rd quarter came around as they tried to play catch up so many times. When they did hand Pead the ball he was very successful, averaging 6.6 yards a carry. The senior running back also rushed for 145+ yards four times last season and had a 200 yard, four touchdown performance vs Rutgers. Darrin Williams was Pead's back up going into the season last year but had injuries all season long so George Winn moved his way up the depth chart. Look for those two to battle for backup while freshman Jameel Poteat and Akise Teague will also be thrown into the mix.
|Anthony McClug looks to be a major target|
for Collaros in the upcoming season
Ben Guidugli has graduated and 6'5 TE Adrien Robinson looks to be the guy to take over his place. Robinson has improved his blocking abilities and he is a huge target for Collaros in the receiving game. Robinson had a better 2009 campaign then he did last year but still managed to score a diving touchdown vs Oklahoma. Robinson looks to be backed up by either Junior Travis Kelce or Sophomore Blake Annen. Kelce ran the wildcat offense for the Bearcats in 2009 but was suspended last season and looks to make a comeback while Black Annen is also a very viable option. Both are around huge targets at 6'6 250 and have improved their blocking skills dramatically throughout the offseason.
|Captain Alex Hoffman looks to lead the line|
