My question to all of you, who are down on the D line, crying about the CB situation, Do you guys even remember watching our LB's last year?
It seems that everyone has forgotten who Skai Moore is, who Lewis is, etc. Our spur is in great hands with TJ Holloman. I don't understand why people are thinking we will go 7-5, or 6-6 when we are returning what could be the best LB core in the SEC. Sure we will have some freshmen at CB, but we had plenty at LB last year.
As for the D Line, everyone is freaking out about that, to which I say, it is not like any of these players have never played in a major college game before. The Dixon Brothers had plenty of playing time last year, and at times the games where Clowney was out, they did a damn good job, so why the worry guys?
TJ Holloman is a LB. Golightly, Diggs, and Bryant are the SPURs.
Secondly, they may be good, but I don't see where they're good enough to offset what could be a very average DL.
