Yeah, I am actually okay with the "lack of star power" because we don't have a lot of proven guys - yet. Dowdle and Bentley are stars but they only played half a year. Hurst and Deebo are there, and Edwards is getting there, but we need a few more receivers.

Ty'Son Williams will be a star but he played sparingly at UNC, Randrecous Davis and the Smiths should be good at WR but they have not played yet, we have lots of potentially good back-ups at TE but nobody that has done much yet (Crosby got most of his yards at slot).

We always know a lot more about our team than the guys doing the write-up. Ty'Son is good enough to challenge Rico for the starting job, giving us 3 quality backs with AJ as the change of pace guy. But the experts basically see 3 backs that have not played more than half a season and have not put up numbers.

This was the easy way out for the writer.

If Deebo has the season that he should have, and Edwards and Davis can stay healthy and play to their potential the WR crew will be solid. We should have a solid 1-2 punch at RB with Dowdle and Willams with some other guys providing change of pace. If they can get Hurst and Crosby involved and forcing the D to respect the TE as well as the WR's this could be a very good offense, and should put up a lot of points.

That being said, this team is still pretty young, and I am not overly optimistic. Going into the summer, I am looking at 6-7 wins being the most likely scenario, but I would not be surprised to see 5 or 8 wins either.

Exactly. We have to start getting big wins again. Beating UGA, Florida, Clemson and not losing to a lower tier team we shouldn't (kentucky) and do that consistently and the respect will be earned. Going .500 against the west teams wouldn't hurt too. Kind of the same things we were all saying in 2007. I don't mean that sarcastically but in terms of years away we're likely still 2-3, especially in building the defense up.

I think we can upset one of those teams this year, but 2018 is when this team will be in legit conversation. Tennessee is also beatable. But also have to beat the average to above average too (Kentucky, Arkansas, etc)
