Wow.. yeah I thought the dline was one of the strongest elements of this years team. Could be one of the best in the country next year as well.

Duke is coming back:

https://twitter.com/Duke95_/status/1611472625464758281?s=20&t=sBBjv69lp-IocG5aVwyv4A

This is huge with great depth/talent on the Dline. Hill, Factor, Franklin, Bowden, and Farrell among others.

Lilja and Scott have a decision to make as well.  Although I think Scott would be less likely, and who could blame Lilja for not going out with his AFCA Good Works Team experience at the Sugar Bowl.  As good as Duke is, Factor, Franklin and Farrell are straight up dudes.  Mount's D would have been elite this year without all of the injuries, should be right there again in '23.  Get in the weight room boys

I think the Stagg Bowl proved that they were an elite D, NCC had to really work for their season low 28 points.

nothing about the Stagg Bowl was elite, except for the effort from the boys. The DL should return a solid 4-5, the LB will have Mason and Rossy back, the secondary should only be missing Bradley, maybe Vail.  I was more bringing up the D getting gassed in the JCU, BW, Wartburg games due to A) lack of depth and B) offense ineptitude.  Towards the end of the season, it was pretty much Duke, Factor and Freshman of the Day trying to get pressure on the QB with at least 3 starting DL injured.  No wonder teams came back

I've also heard great things about Rinard at LB, so excited to see if he can provide a different aspect to the defense.

Article on Coach Kappas at Louisville at:  https://www.the-review.com/story/sports/high-school/fridaynightohio/2023/01/10/louisville-leopards-ohio-high-school-football-head-coach-chris-kappas-austin-peay-mount-union/69792581007/

"We actually lived in Louisville when I coached at Mount Union," Kappas said. "We really enjoyed our time in the community. I was evaluating things and really wanted to spend more time with my family and have a greater presence in the life of my children. That can be hard for a college coach. You spend a lot of time away from home. My wife was interested in coming back to Ohio and the Louisville job became available and the stars aligned for us. We really felt like this was the right move for us."

Rinard should slide into Detellem's spot with slightly less size, but more speed.  LB should be one of the best units in the country in '23, Moore and McMillen could very well be pre-season AA

I hope they can stay healthier next fall because this is going to be the best front 6 they've had on defense in a few years.  The silver lining to the rash of injuries is the 1st team practice reps and crunch time game snaps the young guys got this year.  They're going to be in the backfield A LOT with this crew they have back.

Rossy Moore should be National DPOY candidate, Lally's 20 sacks school record could be in serious jeopardy.  There's also a starting OT that should be back this year and Mount won't have to have a TE playing OT again

I think Lally's record will be safe, Moore is a great linebacker but he's not rushing the passer every down like Lally was.

don't need to rush "every down" vs the Capitals, Otterbeins and John Carrolls of the world to get sacks

A Long Snapper from Duquesne is transferring to Mount Union:

https://twitter.com/col3feldsteino/status/1617614069800013824?s=46&t=4HmY8umVyBfzeFk8_kYelA

Not the first Duqeusne transfer, I remember we had a DB transfer a few years ago who got substantial playing time at duqeusne. I think he started a few games at mount but settled into more of 2nd stringer
