This entire team has a chance to be very special. The quality and depth of returning talent is scary. And I don't see it falling off much even when Nana, Zach, and Stephen graduate.

agree that next years team has oportunity to be special. if everyone works hard and improves a bit, and a couple of the rising second years (stated that way to include Sestina) can take a big, Mackenzie like, step forward, it could be one of the truly great years.

have to say i think your statement about it not falling off much post Nana et. al. is a bit optimistic. i loke the younger talent and am optimistic about the recruits, but they all have much to prove before i can really beleve that. while no one is ever replaced precisely, hopefully you have players who step up and in aggregate replace what was lost and bring different elements to the team. however, Nana really changes the game and i don't see anyone in the pipeline yet who can replace what he brings.

I agree that every player and every team displays a unique character. But looking 2 seasons down the road at a potential starting line up of Newman, Moore, Toomer/Jones, McKenzie, Sotos with a strong bench behind them leaves me optimistic.
