We broke down some position battles, discussed some surprises in camp and even named a starting quarterback for the Aug. 27 opener at Illinois (Don't tell Bohl).

Here's a hint. He's the only one on the depth chart with any experience at this level. You know, the kind of guy you probably want under center when you open the season in Big Ten country.
