Let's just wait until the results come in.

Do not worry. Which of you, by worrying, can add a single hour to his life?

I'm more worried about what A&M has at WR than our CB situation. They have trees that can run.

But i'm usually more glass-half-full type of guy. So instead I like to think about how over half our offense is on some sort of pre-season award watch list (4 OL, 1 TE, 1 RB, 1 WR) plus our kicker. Our defense will be shaky at first but our coaches are pretty dang good at what they do. We'll be fine.

The comments in thread is nearly the same as this one.

I guess the OP wanted to make it a bit more hysterical in tone with regard to the title.

The freshmen were not likely to be ready for a starting CB position in game 1 even if they were here for Summer I.

If A&M has big tall WR, then it makes sense that Brison will be out at one of the CB positions. Get your best players on the field.

Not screwed but not good. Rico and Jamari can hold it down and Brison will play CB too.

Very bad news though of Green and Lammons can't get in. They are very talented. You could say 4 of our top 5 recruits(Sawyer, Thomas, Green, and Lammons) at our 2 biggest positions of need did not make it in to school.

That sucks really, really bad!

That's interesting, considering that most here once felt that Harris was the most likely to redshirt given how small he was physically....

I think this opens the door for Kane Whitehurst to play corner. He played in High school, is big and fast. We will be fine!

yes it's true.....Smalls has to retake the ACT too but he didn't take it today. There is no legal recourse. Apparently the problem is much greater this year around the country so it's just not on us.

I would expect a ton of blitzing... and if we don't get pressure a few losses.

Default Re: Are we screwed at CB?

The reason we are going to a modified 3-4 on passing downs is to more pressure on the QB and take the pressure off our CB's........Green, Lammons and Smalls were not expected to contribute that much this year at least till mid-season at the earliest. These are the same people that were crying last year because we didn't have any LB....how did that work out.

Not ideal depth, but not terrible either.

so what you are saying in a nutshell is.... we're ****ed....

These guys got torched in big games last season, could've easily cost us multiple games had we not had reliable starters.

I wouldn't call this article on Groves a ringing endorsement... any changes on that front?
