U-N-I football coach Mark Farley will spend much of this spring analyzing the front seven on defense. The Panthers have several holes to fill and Farley says a number of young players on the defensive front will be tested by an experienced set of offensive linemen. Farley says with all new linebackers, it’ll be interesting to see how they do. Farley says they’re third year players “so they better start showing up sooner or later.”

Farley says the rest of the defense is experienced. Farley says the secondary is the same as it was last year. The Panthers have a spring game scheduled for April 22nd.
