Travis Lulay (Montana State, 3rd year) has the reigns to lead the Lions offense, for now. Lulay is fearless and undaunted while learning the nuances of the Canadian game. Watching this process unfold is pure joy for me, as the kid attacks the game and has fun doing it.

He breeds confidence amongst his teammates and makes them believe they can win each time out. That is a sign of a natural born leader/winner. He will be fun to watch this season, his first as the team's No. 1 guy. I believe he can handle the challenge (rollercoaster ride) that lies ahead. If he can't, Jarious Jackson (Notre Dame, 7th year) just re-upped with the Lions and guarantees them proven leadership if something should happen to Lulay. Jackson will be better than he was last season as he played through an injured shoulder.

Mike Reilly (Central Washington, 2nd year) was on the practice roster last season which should give him a leg up on the young blood brought into camp in 2011. That competition includes Corey Leonard (Arkansas State, 1st year) and Matt Johnson (Bethune Cookman, 1st year).

Bottom Line: Lulay is worth the price of admission and will be fun to watch grow; Jackson is the "Gramps" of this crew and will serve as their mentor and is an outstanding option if needed; a serious battle will ensue for the No. 3 spot.
