Outlook: The Irish should thrive on their overall speed, and their skill at running back and in the secondary. However, graduation hit them hard on both sides of the line.

Outlook: The Raiders have depth at the running back, quarterback, wide receiver, linebacker and defensive back positions, but they'll need to shore up the offensive and defensive lines and get through inexperience in the kicking and punting game. Improved speed and strength, as well as a better overall attitude, should help.
