A kicker who can kick it out the end zone and a team smart enough to catch the defense when they have 12 men on the field. Even with Connor we never tried to get the easy 5 yards.

I think that someone has stated that we need to incorporate our tight ends more into our offense as the group that we have are very good and big. I would also like to see our O-Line for once "Man UP' and just beat the tar out of the other teams D-Line and make big holes for our RB's. How can you be 6ft-8inches tall and weigh 325 lbs and not take your guy to the end zone on every play. I am not just talking about Robinson, but the whole O-Line as they need to be a heck of a lot more physical than they have been in the last five or six years. Granted they were better at times this year, but with the studs that we have running the ball, there should be big holes for these guys. I would love to have had Wisconsin O-Line with our RB's this year. Those guys were very good. Special teams have got to get better. We have to be one of the worst teams on covering kick offs and punts in the nation. I would also like us to become more physical on both the offense and defense and get to the ball and gang tackle if your teammate has the other guy stopped and standing him up. I like a defense that swarms to the ball and makes the other team know that they are in for a fight for the whole game. The O-Line should be just as aggressive in their run blocking and getting down field and still continue to hunt heads to block. I want us to be mean, but clean and not become a bunch of thugs. Act like you have done it before when you knock somebody down and don't run 25 yards down the field and pose for the TV camera.

I'll tell you what I want to see changed....make the seats about 4" wider with 3more inches of leg/knee space then charge about 10% more for the trouble.....airlines are starting to do this and it's being very well received.

You've got that right.

I hope we REALLY dial up the number of plays he gets this year.

I'll say it 'til I'm blue in the face -- we need to use Brandon to wear down a defense and then we turn loose the Tasmanian Devil (Davis) to spin, twist and turn... and take it to the house.

Wilds can plow the field.

Significantly improved run blocking and special teams play. Come opening game next year, South Carolina will have gone 12 years without a kickoff return TD. 12 Years! That's absurd. Also, when we lost Ace our punt return game plummeted back to terrible. And our punting is atrocious, nearly the worst in the nation.

Special teams national ranking from 2012 to 2013
62nd to 94th in kickoff returns
106 to 124th in net punting
10th to 114th in punt returns
18th to 69th in opponents punt returns
99 to 92nd in opponents kickoff returns

We are awful in special teams...we went from 10th to next to last in the nation on punt returns. Also, our opponents got better at returns on us as well.

A change in special teams is overdue.

Finally, a team that can run a clock out at the end of a game.

My biggest complaint.
Against Clemson, we couldn't run it out..needed multiple turnovers.
Against Wisconsin, couldn't run out the clock.

It is kind of like foul shots in basketball...you may only make 65 %, but you make them in the fourth when they count. We don't have to be a dominant run team (though that would be nice) but we need to make the runs count when they matter most...up with 5 minutes to go in a game is when it counts most.

Agreed.

For the 2013 season, Wilds had 43 carries for 221yds (net). Granted he was injured for several weeks, but he needs way more touches. He's a beast outta the backfield and he's riding the pine, wasting away......

I think this statement just ignores the reality of high-level football. It ignores defensive schemes, the quality of competition, and seems to assume the players lack motivation. Defensive linemen, and especially linebackers don't stand around or rush straight ahead waiting to get pushed "to the end zone."
If we wanted to trade OL with Wisconsin, it would entail a 2 tight end scheme as our base offense and losing 3 of the 7 to graduation this year. We didn't sell out and pack the box against them. They got about their average in run yardage, but were not able to suck us up into vulnerability to big pass plays as they had anticipated. They were good, but I wouldn't trade - now or for the future.

Yo u ever been to a game in Knoxville, has got to be the worst place in any stadium to try and watch a game. Like in the old days of trying to see how many people you can cram into a telephone booth ! ! ! ! !
& God forbid if you ever stand up, eventually you turn around to sit down only to find you're about 6 seats away from your own !!

That's a fact. They added thousands of seat by doing nothing other than renumbering what they already had if I remember correctly. Those seats aren't near wide enough for average people. You put LuLu & Bubba in them & everybody else on the row gets squeezed into the aisle.
