    IMO that is clearly the correct decision.

    I hope skeeter doesn't find out about this! :slappy:

    This is definately a good move. Underwoods coverage always seemed inferior to Youbotys. I never understood why he was higher on the depth chart except maybe Underwood is a better tackler.

    Youboty replacing Underwood is a good move.

    This is a good move. The other move that's needed is to replace Salley with Everitt or Mitchell.

    Underwood hasnt showed how good he was advertised to be all year. He doesnt like to hit, and shies away from contact. He also seems to be slow breaking on the ball, and gets lazy in zone coverage. Youboty did a fine job when Fox was injured. This is the right move in my opinion.

    best adjustment yet.... would still love to see ginn repping at CB

    I agree, especially since Ginn dosen't seem to able to learn to run proper routes. I'd like to see more of Lyons and Gonzo at WR.

    Love Ginn's ability to change a game, but as a WR he's a role player at best.... my gut says he'll score more TD's after INT's than he will as a WR... and let's just go ahead and commit to him as the primary PR and put him next to Mo Hall on KR too.... nothing against Holmes, but I think giving that job to Ginn will yield better results and allow Holmes to focus more on WR (where he's underachieving just a little bit).

    Give EJ a fair chance - Fox sucks. LOL!!!

    EJ was schooled on Iowa's first touchdown. I always heard he had fluid hips but they were going the wrong direction on that play.

    Not that it's worth the paper this isn't printed on, but I'm a fan of this move as well. In fact, I'd like to see more moves like this around the depth chart.

    An excellent adjustment that should have an impact against a veteran quarterback.

    I know I'm in the minority here but I'm not so sure about the quality of our DB depth. Lots of Safeties but not a lot of true CB's. What do you guys think?

    I don't know anything about Roberts, is he any good?

    It's to early to tell about Lane, Underwood, Nick Patterson, and Welch (Like what I'm seeing on Spec. Teams) With maybe the exception of Lane I thought B. Underwood, Patterson, Welch, Mitchell were slated for safety?

    After Fox, EJ and Youboty who are our true CB's?

    This is a good move, only because EJ isn't as tech. Sound as Yobouty is. EJ is our fastest player so keep that in mind for years to come.

    I tend to agree with you. If you're just talking scholarship players after Fox, Youboty and Underwood you have Harlen Jacobs, a senior who has contributed more on special teams than in the secondary, Michael Roberts, a kid who hasn't made a contribution anywhere, Brandon Underwood and Shaun Lane, both redshirts. Underwood looked good in the Big 33 and the North/South game and Lane is undersized. You wonder if Ginn will see more time at corner next year. Since we're losing Fox and Jacobs we could certainly use another corner in this class to go with Malcolm Jenkins. If O'Neal ends up at safety I could see taking two.
