Default The Youngest Team in the Nation?

Spurrier said something today that made me realize something. We are literally the youngest team in the country. We are 3-1 with this team. In the toughest conference in America.
So let me ask you this question. If we are 3-1 at this point, with the youngest team in the nation, how bright can our future really be?

I am seeing National Titles in our future.

I certainly hope you're right. It all depends on how our young players (especially the freshmen & redshirts) develop over the next couple years.

Next year certainly looks sweet, but look at who we lose after that... pretty much everyone except roland and david williams and a few decent lineman on offense, and the defense will look all new. We have the qbs in waiting, we are gonna need some o tackles and guards to emerge. On defense we need some studs to come in and develop what we have. we do have a shot to keep this train rolling.

JC Shurburtt @247 thinks that our defense in 2014 could be the worst defense since the Brad Scott era.

Offense will be awesome again though.

With Clowney having such a mediocre season thus far, I really wish he'd come back next season.

Well that just plain sucks....... not only for 2014........ but for this year as well......

Keep hoping for improvement, but we are just giving up too many easy plays!

Hopefully the Offense can keep putting up BIG numbers........ looks like we may need them!

A lot of folks also thought this year's defense would blow everyone out of the water, and it's not quite working out that way. It's impossible to make predictions like that, so take it with a grain of salt. Next year's D could end up being great, just depends on how we develop in the offseason and how the players gel together.

Recruiting over the past 2 years is going to bite us in the rear soon.

I see no one who can be half as productive as Clowney on our DL.

Defense is looking sad for next year.

Default Re: The Youngest Team in the Nation?

it doesnt matter how young you are if that young talent doesnt develop into all sec caliber players. next year guys like english, harris, the linebackers, and the corners will have to grow up in a hurry. someone proving capable of being an impact guy so brison can move back to strong safety would help too.

if hampton indeed does leave early, youre talking both de's and both cb's gone. thats killer for a defense losing your best coverage guys and pass rushers. if kelcey comes back theres no excuse for that interior not to be rock solid with the size and experience they have. we'll have the youth excuse at de and cb, but the rest of the defense wont have excuses.

Wow.....we should not even field a team in 2014. We are doomed. That is why I don't listen to any prognosticators. Southern Cal. Number 1 last year? Right. Lets get through 2013 and then worry about 2014.

Default Re: The Youngest Team in the Nation?

We're no where near the top in recruiting, and, it seems, due to the coaching changes, maybe we're not developing that talent very well. It seems Spurrier is really upset, and the players are frustrating.

My worst fears are that the last two years were as good as we'll ever be and that Spurrier is gone after this year. I hope not. I hope he won't quit until we win an SEC Championship, at least one. But, it's his job to get good coaches in here.

What's so damn ironic is that we finally got a great offense, and now, well now, our defense isn't very good. Ugh.

Default Re: The Youngest Team in the Nation?

I find it odd when some "experts" are saying that our 2014 defense may
be the worst since the days of Brad Scott, yet Todd Ellis said on the
noon show Thursday that with the young (albeit inexperienced) talent
we have on the team right now, and with what we have coming in next
season, he said "The coaches think next year's defense is going to be
one of the best in the conference" ... He said the coaches are very
excited about the way the team is shaping up for next season ?!?!?!?

Maybe some changes will need to be made, Maybe this years team will
get better in the second half and get stronger even next season. .... Who
Knows ? ... What I do know is that I'll worry about what we have next season
NEXT SEASON..... I'm still hoping we can find some answers to the issues
we have this season and if that does happen, and we start playing better
this year, I have no reason to think next season's defense will be the
worse it's been in almost two decades.
