no argument here beniro - they surely had a tough time filling when line penetration was non-existent.  no one celebrated the departure of McFarland more than i...

in the end, i don't think Ruud is the guy that has "heir apparent" written all over him either.  that position needs to be extremely athletic for coverage considering what kiffin asks his mlb to do.  Ruud has a better future at Nece's position and Nece has a better future at Brooks's position in my opinion.  we'll see, but i would not sell Cash or Mallard short, and i totally forgot about Winborn - when he figures it out he'll be a nice addition - quite an athlete.

Correct.

In 2009 Ruud becomes a RFA.
Wouldn't he be a URFA? That would be after his fourth season.

Ruud can be a good MLB, but we need to get some athletic guys around him. I would sell Cash, Mallard, Winborn, and all the other backups short, we need better players than that to have a top defense.
