Feels like there’s been at least one the past couple years. The Zack Gilbert year there was at least two, if not three, medical disqualifications.

actually that brings up a point. AJ Davis is good for getting basically 1-3 yards. No more, no less. He's strong enough to get to the line and fall forward. You know when we didn't use him? On all those 3rd/4th and 1 situations we sucked royally at

Spring football has started, and so begins another season-long journey flush with enough brilliant moments to make me think this program may finally be turning that corner that year, only to have it eventually come crashing down in like Week Three when they inexplicably lost to Western Michigan.

Not much in the line of changes:

1. I'm not sure if it was discussed earlier, but Aydin Henningham moved from WR to LB. From what Chris Peak said on PL, this was apparently a move they made with him during the season. It was just never reflected on the roster until recently.

It's not a surprising change at all. Henningham played safety in high school. At 6'2", 210, he fits in that same mold that we see with guys like Phil Campbell, Sirvocea Dennis, Solomon Deshields, and Bengally Kamara, so it's not tough to see what they have planned for Henningham. The evolution of the LB position in this defense is one of my favorite things about it, so this is good to see.

2. Relatively minor but Shane Murphy has moved from OL to FB.

3. A few of the OL have bulked up quite a bit. Collier is now listed at 6'6", 340; last season he was listed at 315. In 2019 when he made the move to tackle, he was 6'5", 285. Gabe Houy was listed at 300 last year, and he's at 325. Branson Taylor went from 320 to 335. Zubovic is now at 330, up from 320 last year.

4. The DL weren't quite as dramatic, at least from the roster listings. Dayon Hayes is at 265, up from 250 last year. Belgrave also went from 235 to 255.

The football social media accounts also released some photos and a minute-long video to Twitter as they usually do. I realize it's just spring ball and they're just in helmets, but I will say that Addison, Brandon Hill, Deslin Alexandre, and John Morgan all looked noticeably bigger/bulkier.

Really have high hopes for Dayon Hayes. I always pull for the city league guys on the roster.

Lets hope we get more difference makers at the LB position. Dennis was a good surprise and we need more than that.

Good to see all of the glowing reviews of the TE position. :|

Ready to be excited...only to be let down again. The typical pitt cycle.

I'm pretty hopeful for LB with Dennis, Bright and Campbell. But another guy or two stepping up is not gonna hurt anyone. Biggest concern is the secondary. Luckily, the front 7 is gonna be legit again so hopefully they don't need to cover anyone for that long

Biggest concern with the defense*

Offense and more specifically the run game is the big concern

Vincent Davis should be "good enough" for pitt to have a respectable running game provided that someone else (not named AJ Davis preferably) steps in and contributes something meaningful to the offense.

I think he needs a 1b to take some of the load off of him. But I am a little encouraged by how the run game looked the last 2 or 3 games now that I'm remembering. It's mostly on the line imo
