Upon the release of the SU depth chart yesterday, one name was predictably missing: Max Beaulieu. And that makes me wonder if Marrone and co. did the right thing switching him offense before last year. Beaulieu enters his redshirt sophomore season as a work-in-progress tight end nowhere near the depth chart.

Lyle McCombs ~ Connecticut ~ Sophomore from Staten...

Jake Moskowitz and Brendan Glasheen break down the top areas of concern and speculate at what the totally re-designed offense...
