Five Questions | Some Football and a Little Basketball

Five_questions_-_tiltshift__resize__medium

1.  WHO WILL BE THIS TEAM'S TOP OUTSIDE RECEIVER?  No matter what happens this spring, Texas Tech will have two new outside receivers.  The candidates, at least in terms of the post-spring two-deep are Eric Ward, Marcus Kennard, Darrin Moore and Tramain Swindall.  Which two options of the four do you think will make the biggest impact this fall and why?

2.  WHO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SENIOR OFFENSIVE LINE STARTER OR WHO WILL BE THE MOST DIFFICULT TO REPLACE IN 2012?  There are three senior starters along the offensive line: LG Lonnie Edwards; C Justin Keown; and RT Mickey Okafor?  I know that 2012 is a long way away and perhaps you can consider this question to be a reflection of which player you think is the most important right now, but who will be the most difficult to replace next year?

3.  THUS FAR, WHAT IS THE MOST INTRIGUING THING ABOUT THE 4-2-5 DEFENSE?  Thus far we've gone over two of the seven parts for a look at the 4-2-5 defense and how it works (Part I: Introduction and Part II: Sizing up the defenses).  Thus far, what are you most intrigued about in regards to the 4-2-5 defenses and do you share any of the same concerns in regards to Glasgow coordinating (i.e., he's never coordinated a defense before and since the 4-2-5 uses two different calls for the front six vs. the back five, I assume he's never made the calls for the defensive line)?

4.  WHICH OF THE NEW BASKETBALL SIGNEES ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO SEE NEXT YEAR?  Coach Gillispie has signed nine players in the 2011 recruiting class.  The only correction is that you need to remove SF Merv Lindsay and add PF/C Daoudo Saoumaoro. Is there one player or two that you're most excited to see on the court?

5.  OT:  DO YOU CARE IF I'M POSTING DTN POSTS ON DTN'S FACEBOOK PAGE? 
OT:  I've recently started sending the DTN posts that I do to DTN's Facebook page.  The poll is after the jump, but I'm curious as to whether or not you use Facebook and if you care I'm posting stories to DTN's Facebook page.  I admit that I really don't use Facebook at all and I'm rarely on Facebook at all.  Feel free to answer below or answer the poll question.
