Agree 100%. We have the pieces to have a very good running game but we have to put it together. If Dowdle, Turner and Williams don't produce early and consistently I think we could see a freshman (Valentine) at TB.

That and to not mention Denson after the performance he had late in the season is an injustice.

I'm hopeful that we repeat last season's results, at least. Replacing NC State in Charlotte with Coastal Carolina at home is a big improvement, but then we did beat NC State regardless. Florida, Tennessee, and Texas A&M are breaking in new staffs with new schemes and philosophies, so hopefully that should help our experienced team when we face them. UF and UTjr. returns a lot of talent but they also have big question marks at QB, and UTjr. also is dealing with a total schematic change on defense going from a 4-3 to a 3-4, plus they have to go through a morale-draining gauntlet before coming to Williams-Brice at the end of it.

The game versus Kentucky will be a huge game-changer on how our season may turn out, IMO. Can't let them win another one. Taking care of business on the road vs Vandy and UK, we could be starting a 3-gm home stretch vs Missouri, TAMU, and UTjr. at 4-1, at worst...

On paper, the schedule is not as tough as last year, and that was not one of our tougher ones. We need to take advantage.

Having said that, you never know how coaching changes can impact a team. If the team underachieved but has talent and experience, a coaching change can result in immediate improvement. We know that TAMU, UF and UT have the talent if the coaching is there.

Ole Miss will be in the second year with their coach. Mizzou figures to be better than last year, and then there is UK.....

We could look back and say that the schedule was pretty tough. But every game is winnable, so no excuses.

I donít know we have the potential to be real good itís all on the play calling Bryan McClendon is the deciding factor over whether we will win 7 or 10 games.

The play calling can only be as good as the playbook allows. Hopefully, gone are the plays that can be defended with only 6 guys.

I remember when roper was first hired a guy said to be ready for screens often. And it seemed every other play was some kind of screen. So hopefully it's not as predictable....

I thought we replaced Hunt with Wolf(for one year), then Elliot was hired in 2010.

I think 8 wins should be the bottom and 11 is probably our ceiling. As long as our defense is ready and the offense can score 28 pts per game, we should win most if not all of them.

Carolina, Miss State and maybe Missouri are better than LSU. Nothing about that team and coaching staff scare anyone they might be due a UF/UT melt down.

LSU is really a hard team to figure out in the preseason. I don't think their coach can get it done, but they have potential with the talent that they do have. It will be interesting to see how their offense is this year.

But from what I can understand, not many people like Orgeron down there. If they go 8-4 or 7-5, his seat is burning. If they go 6-6 or worse, they definitely will have a new coach in 2019.

I agree, and it seems to be the consensus among most people
