The newspaper says DePauw's new head coach, "[Bill] Lynch has big shoes to fill, after the departure of longtime coach Nick Mourouzis, who won 138 games in his 23 years at DePauw. [Wide receiver and kick returner Jamarcus] Shephard is expected to be a force on offense and special teams, where he excelled in 2003, winning the league's Special Teams Player of the Year award. [Quarterback Ross] Wiethoff should be a threat on the ground and in the air."
