...and no mention of NR1. What gives? Seems like he fell off the face of the earth.

A couple of things come to mind:

1) Maybe we (I was as big an advocate as any) were wishful thinking on Nick as a D-1 linebacker. Unless he's hurt, I'm wondering if he simply doesn't have the speed to play in a Coach Amato defense.

2) I absolutely LOVE having Coach Amato in charge of the defense! Was there every any doubt that he would develop a quick understanding of "what works and what doesn't" in the MAC (referring to his "a league that space is so very important to be able to play in" comment)? I have more concerns about the talent on the defense right now as opposed to the offense, but I have no doubt that Coach Amato will make the wise calls in both personnel and tactics. By the end of 2012, I expect the Zip defense to be playing better than any we've seen thus far at the Info. It'll take a while for the LB newcomers in August to get their D-1 feet wet.
