1.  This question is a bit pessimistic, but if Tuberville were to leave at the end of the year for another program or really any reason at all, do you think he's left the program in better shape than he found it?

2.  Hopefully you've been paying attention to my ramblings throughout the Finding 25 series where I've mentioned on a handful of occasions, as has the coaching staff, that positions may mean nothing heading into the season and that Tuberville simply wants the best talent on the field.  Over the weekend (and keep in mind it was only after 1 practice) this was your starting defense:

On Saturday, DEs Brian Duncan and Sam Fehoko and DTs Colby Whitlock and Myles Wade formed the first-team defensive line. The first nickel defense package had LBs Julius Howard and Bront Bird and DBs Will Ford, Jarvis Phillips, D.J. Johnson, Franklin Mitchem and Cody Davis.

This is the first I've heard of Fehoko at defensive end, but this move lends to the idea that he wants guys that can play out on the field.  This is more of a general question, which is, what are you thinking about how this defense is going to eventually round out?  Feeling good?  Concerned?  Trust in Tubs?

3.  There's been quite a bit of movement along the offensive line already, and we've got four options at left tackle:  Terry McDaniel, LaAdrian Waddle, Mickey Okafor and Beau Carpenter.  Who do you think eventually wins this spot and if you think it's going to be Carpenter, how comfortable would you feel with a freshman, at perhaps the most important position along the line, starting?

4.  In order, of the freshmen defensive backs, who do you think will crack the rotation?  Here's the list:  Tre'Vante Porter, Urell Johnson, Desmond Martin and Russell Polk.

5.  I took the time to copy the roster (after the jump) and get it into a table format.  This is the audience participation portion of Five Questions.  Someone take a player that you've never heard of and find as much information as possible.  Hint:  Google is your friend.  Please, for the love that is all good, help the DTN community.
