2012 Post-Spring Depth Chart Posted
True Blue Golden Bear
All I can say is I guess one practice (ie Spring Game) is only one practice.
Personally, from the tiny bit I have seen, Bridge would not be 2nd, and Isi/CJA would be flipped (though at RB it is not as big a deal who "starts").
Anyway, there is a long way to go, and a lot of informal and formal coaching and training to be done...
Edit; interesting that the holder is not Bridge or Maynard... I wonder why. I cant remember the last time the holder was not the first or second QB. (Or am I ignorant on what HLD means?)

I know these things are fluid and it is very early, especially with fall camp still coming up and the incoming freshmen coming in, but there are some interesting things here.
- Looks like Jordan Rigsbee did well enough in spring to pass up some upperclassmen and earn the starting job at guard. Both Jordan and Tyler Rigsbee are listed as starters.
- Looks like Schwenke at center and Galas at guard is here to stay.
- Richard Rodgers listed as a starter (many have mentioned that he had a strong spring).
- Yarnway not on the 2-deep at FB.
- Gabe King not on the 2-deep at any of the DL positions.
- Camporeale still listed as a starter at OLB.
- Forbes earned a starting spot at ILB after Mullins and Hurrell were reported to be running with the 1's throughout spring.
- Kaufisi backing up Jalil.
- Cole Lehinger already listed as the punter before he arrives, as there are no other legitimate punting options on the current roster.
- KA listed as the punt returner.
- Bouza listed as the holder.
- Moala not listed on the 2-deep at NG
-Gibson not listed on the 2-deep at ILB.

I refuse to believe that Moala's name shouldn't be on this list. I know we're stacked on the D line, but please.
I thought Campo was at the spring game with a massive brace on his knee. Surprised to find him still #1 on the depth chart.
Gabe King is still not in the 2 deeps.
I look forward to the frosh olinemen and WRs to arrive this summer.
TE looks like it's pretty thin, especially if Ladner doesn't make it back.

iirc, Anger was the holder last year (and may have been in 2010 as well)

I agree on the OL and CB... but LB? I thought we are pretty deep there, even for a 3-4. LB corps doesn't have a ton of experience, but there are plenty of bodies and a lot of potential.

I'd agree we're deep there, but not convinced we have the impact playmakers right now. McCain and Whiteside have had flashes, Forbes/Wilkerson are consistent, but I haven't seen the flashes of brilliance we saw in the younger versions of Kendricks, Mohamed, Holt, etc. throughout their careers.

+1 - happy to see KA get a shot at PR. I hope Bigs is at 100% and can bring it this next year. Other than his one good KR for a score against Presby, he didn't appear to be one of our better KRs last season.

At positions with that much rotation, Clancy will figure out which guys are working and they'll gravitate to the top of the chart. We had some growing pains this year (particularly against the spread) but the guys are all a year older and more experienced so that should be of lesser concern.
I wish it was football season - can't wait to get to CMS.
I will go to my grave believing he is hugely awesome, period.
