Toney Baker Listed As First String Tailback; Other Depth Chart Notes

ACC Now link
  • Toney Baker is listed at the top back on the depth chart, wrestling the position away from Jamelle Eugene. That's great news for Baker and for fans -- it means all the praise coach O'Brien has showered on Toney's in fall practice wasn't lip service (would we expect otherwise from TOB?). Baker must be nearly back to the form he showed years ago.
  • Redshirt-freshman OL R.J. Mattes beat out senior Andy Barbee for the right offensive guard spot.
  • Dwayne Maddox bested Terrell Manning for the boundary linebacker position. Last year's experience no doubt served him well.
  • Somewhat surprising, junior Jeff Ruiz beat out true freshman Chris Ward for the starting punter position despite the impressive numbers Ward put up in the scrimmages.
  • Also somewhat surprising, redshirt freshman C.J. Wilson is the top field cornerback ahead of incumbent DeAndre Morgan.
Coach O'Brien will likely explain some of these position changes following practice today.

  1. thursday can't get here fast enough.

  2. maybe Toney will run over a So Car safety like he did that guy from EKU...granted it was EKU but i think he was a fifth yr SR and Baker was a FR...

  3. I'd rather see Toney run AROUND guys and into the endzone. Avoid injuries and score some points!

  4. Does anyone know what happened to Markus Kuhn?
