1. The Alpha Wide Receiver
We all know Keith Wenning can throw and the offensive line returns most of their guys. So the only question about the passing game is at wide receiver.
Ball State had a team effort at the position last year as no go-to-guy emerged. That needs to change. Who is Wenning’s No. 1 target? Imagine what Wenning can do with star receivers. The Cardinals can keep up with Arena Football teams if stars present themselves.
2. Running Game Battle
After last season I thought Jahwan Edwards was lock to be the starting running back in 2012. Ball State is deeper at the position this season with Tennessee transfer Toney Williams ready to play.
Maybe the running backs will be harder to predict than first anticipated?
3. Anything From the Defense
Hard to judge a defense in a spring game where quarterbacks are untouchable. Nevertheless, the defense has to be the biggest question mark on the team after losing plenty of starters to graduation.
As fun as it is to watch Wenning launch bombs down the sideline seeing some deflections and good tackles will the best sign fans can hope for going in the fall.
