The time is now for players already on the team to step up and show the new offensive coaching staff that they are ready to live up to the potential that the former staff saw in them that earned them a scholarship.
The quarterback position will be an area of interest. The quarterback position should benefit with the arrival of two the of game's best quarterback coaches in new head coach Rick Neuheisel and his offensive coordinator, the legendary, Norm Chow.
