First of all, his players will have to learnthe Bagnoli system, effectively reducing them torookie competency. Look for a lot of botched playsand missed assignments, especially early on in theyear.
Secondly, he just doesn't have the personnel tomake Penn the "Team of the '90s."
At quarterback, Bagnoli has yet to choosebetween sophomore Nick Morris, the MVP of thefreshman squad last year, junior Mike Barthlow,who threw a total of five passes last year(completing two for 18 yards), and junior JimMcGeehan, who started four games last year andcompleted 74 of 179 passes for 848 yards.
Senior tailback Fitz McKinnon should be theoffensive star. A quarterback in 1991, he wasswitched to take advantage of his speed and power.
The defense has a lot of returning talent butit remains to be seen whether it can learn tocover man-to-man and zone and blitz thequarterback--all at the same time, if Bagnoli'syapping is to be believed.
Junior inside linebacker Andy Berlin leads thereturners. Berlin recorded 80 tackles last year,fourth-highest on the team. He is joined byoutside linebacker senior Dave Betten, who had 79tackles last year. With senior nose tackle SeanBoyle, he will anchor an otherwise young frontseven.
If the athletes can decipher the playbooks, theQuakers could be interesting. But Bagnoli isn'tsounding enthusiastic, and his teams is likelystill be a few years away.
