Not really. Name 1 player from that team other than Cam? They had 2 players drafted in first 6 rounds. We have 2 who will be drafted in top 6 rounds...probably have 3 or 4. Hurst, Debo, Skai and Bentley are 6th round talent.

If you look at it....the parallels of Auburn 2009/preseason 2010 vs USC 2016/preseason 2017 are eerily similar. Even the arch rival winning it all the year before.

Nick Fairley and that TE with a long last name who died were on that team.

They weren't loaded with talent but were a senior lead team. They had a never say die attitude. Auburn should have lost at least 5 games that year if I recall correctly.

We could have that kind of year too if the defense steps up and the offense clicks on all cylinders, as well as if Otre, Jamyest, and the new players coming in can step it up and contribute.

I wouldn't say they were loaded with talent. Cam was great, the oline was good and Fairly was unblockable at times. That defense was not championship caliber by any means. They just made plays in the 2nd half and it started with Fairly.

Carolinas offense depends on the oline. If they can play in the top half of the league then I expect carolina to play in Atlanta. 5-3/ 4-4 in league play I think could win the east.

That is the variable and it is true with just about every national champ - there are a lot of games that could have gone either way for Auburn that year, same with Clemson last year (NC State, Louisville, even Troy, FSU, Va Tech, Auburn). You need breaks, a few favorable calls and bounces, players staying healthy, etc.

You need a few breaks along the way. We could have a great year - or we could get Skai hurt on D or Bentley hurt on Offense, lose a few close ones, etc.

I get what you're saying but Clemson didn't trail by double digits in the 4th quarter of those games. They for the most part made a play on defense late in those games. Off the top of my head i remember Auburn just being lucky on 2 occasions. Alabama fumbled going in for a td when they were already up by 21pts. Carolina was up a score with a chance for a scoop and score in the 4th qtr and A.A kicks the ball out of bounds.

I understand the skepticism and I am not saying we will win a natty. But Do not underestimate this offense. It is probably the best we have ever had, ever.

Earth to 1137. How can you even say that without playing a down. Let's see some games before we make wild claims.

Earth to this entire thread. We won 6 games last year everybody.

6 games with a remarkably young team that improved significantly on Offense over the second half. And with the best defensive coach in college football on our side. And with the players getting comfortable with the new schemes. Heck, as much as Boom gets maligned for his record at UF, he went from 7-6 to 11-2 during his first two years.

You are somewhat right - we will still be young, and our team is not filled with 4* and 5* players. But we will be better on both sides, with a chance to be substantially better on Offense. There is a lot of reason for optimism and to expect, at least, a 2 - 3 game bump.

So allow us a little flight of fantasy.

You guys can discuss whatever you like. But in my experience, the folks that proclaim to have the beast team ever etc. will be the first in line to proclaim the sky is falling when we loose a game. (not everyone specifically - but generally speaking)

I am thinking 8-9 wins and believe there is every logical reason to think that we can, even should, get there. I hope for more but will keep that to myself.

I personally believe that our best shot for national relevance will be 2018, when Boom has more of his defenders in place and coached up, and Bentley will be an experienced Junior with a full arsenal of skill guys around him.

But who is to say that we can't get on a roll, catch a few breaks and reach national relevance this year? Stranger things have happened - like a team that had not won an NCAA game in 43 years making it to the Final Four.
