That's why I'm glad games aren't played on paper. Nobody thought Missouri would win the East, but they did. Nobody thought FSU would go undefeated, but they did. The amazing thing about college football is that anything can happen, on any given day. Have faith in the team, I do. The only loss I see is Auburn and that could still go either way. No team in the East has our depth. Also we have the HBC. He never left. So as long as we have him then anything is possible.

I do think, however, we have the depth to perform even better as a team. On DL, the no-namers could be a real force with specialists moving in and out. We might be able to just wear out good teams by throwing a wave of quality, hungry players at them. At LB/spur, we have a strong battle going on across the level with an improved MLB being passed by a player with some game experience last year. At DB, the battles are also intense. At QB, we'll see pretty soon. AT WR, no one player offers what Bruce did, but the top 4 look really good, and we have 6 or 7 who can already play - with 3 freshmen grinding to learn the system.
Agree with most of this. See my response above to some of these players.
I think Waldrop will be at least as good as Patrick was last year. Matulis would have been a definite upgrade. Although Bruce was a good WR, I think our overall WR this year will be better than last year plus better depth at the position. I also think we'll see a big improvement over last year with our TE. Connor struggled with mid-range passes especially over the middle to TE.
Hampton played out of position so much, I doubt you'll see that this year. Williams will be better than Hampton and McWilliams/Harris will be as good as Legree.

Per the CB comparison, Williams as a CB is probably at least as good as either than Hampton or Legree and either Harris or McWilliams are pretty good as well, so I see the combination of the 2 CB is even. Remember Hampton played out of position a ton until Whammy finally sat him. We'll see how the position plays out.
Kelcy was good last year but Dixon is pretty good too......plus our depth at the DT position is better this year than last year.
Sorry bro, but thats not being realistic. You're not going to except any talk of a drop off from opposing fans or your fellow fans. Your a good fan, though. You believe in your team.

I think most are looking at areas where we should be better rather than looking at who we lost. #1, linebackers. They came on strong last year and grew up quickly. Should continue to progress. #2 Experienced DL depth and the new scheme to fit the talent. #3 running game is deeper and mostly healthy. #4 o line. Bigger, deeper, stronger. #5 with Dylan Thompson at qb, this should open up the play book more and take the heat off the running game and the need for a running qb. #6 depth and experience at all WR positions. Roland was definitely coming on and will continue to step up and be the guy. Granted these are all expectations right now but it's not illogical to expect them all. We will find out quickly enough

I agree with EvilChicken. The OP didn't come across as a typical troll, and his concerns now seem to have been well-founded. A LOT of folks in this thread are eating some crow tonight, and they ALL owe the OP an apology in my opinion.

At least I can say I'm not crazy. Everything kind of added up to me but all the sunshine pumping here plus the media sucking us off kind of made me start to think "hmm, maybe I am missing something". Nah, I think I was hesitant with good reason.

*toothsuck*

Exactly! My loyalty was being questioned because I had the audacity to predict a 10 win season. How ridiculous. I love this team, but I was quite aware of the unwarranted hype.

Okay, just making sure. I think we are on the same page.

1. We have an QB that is ultimately untested even with 4 games of experience under his belt...yet, he got the praise of one of the best QBs in the conference.

2. Our depth all around...how can that be underestimated? Guys were gassed all night long, especially at workhorse positions where we were traumatized (OL, DB, DL).

3. Scheme changes.

4. No clear leader/captain on offense or defense. A lot of people won't like this comment because they will say "what about Thompson and Moore!"...yeah, Thomson is a 5th year senior and good Christian boy- but leadership is shown on the field in football. Unless you've played the game, you won't understand that.

I had a feeling Mike Davis was going to disappear this season with unspecified injuries. Be mad, but this team didn't warrant the hype.
