Exactly. Both of our last two championships in '68 and '02 had first year starters at quarterback. Rex Kern and Krenzel.
Our defense should be much improved over last year, so hopefully be less reliant on our offense to put up so many points. We still have what could be the best defensive line in the country. Our offensive skill players are overall probably the best we have had since Urban has been here. And our offensive line remains to be a big question, however, we have recruited extremely well at that position and Warinner is a fantastic coach.
Yes there will be growing pains with an inexperienced offensive line and young quarterback, but like TheBadOwl said, this season is not over. We are still a damn good team overall.
