Rebels have cause for concern this spring

If the Rebels want to repeat the success they enjoyed the past two seasons – 9-4 records each season – several big questions must be answered, with most coming on offense. The top issue is finding a quarterback. But keep your eyes on how well the offensive line develops. And it’s also worth noting that the staff was altered. Offensive coordinator Kent Austin left to become coach at Cornell. Nutt will have co-coordinators, promoting offensive line coach Mike Markuson and hiring former Alabama offensive coordinator Dave Rader. Rader was coach at Tulsa from 1988-1999 but had been out of football the past three seasons. This looks like a challenging spring in Oxford.
