Spring Ball showed me 9 wins for 2018

- And it's not because...we have a bunch of talent. We have "good" talent. It's the improved fundamental across the board I saw. Coaching improvement is already evident.


- Banks and Chryst. Yes London will have a say, but Banks is a future star. Chryst will either win the job OR push Jarret Gaurantano to a knew level.
I saw improved route anticipation in all our QB.

- Defensively...still. a work. But Sapp, Theo Jackson showed starting ability as backups.
But overall the defense showed some speed. Need to get better at point of attack. Bituli and Kirkland will bring the needed juice from the middle.

We showed improvement on offense in our concepts and speed. Banks will bring the power. We already have an idenity. And were not even at full strength. Run to set up the pass. Dobbs basically gave us an identity for 3 years by accident.

So I believe, spring showed that this team has already improved.

We'll able to run the ball.
Can we stop the run?? I believe that will happen when we are full strength defensively. There are 2 teams on our schedule that are just more talented. They're also well coached.

We beat Florida
West Virgina and
Missouri all because we will be able to handle their line of scrimmage...both sides.

OP, did you happen to be wearing these when you watched the spring game?



Might explain the disconnect.

I like the optimism but how can you truly form an opinion on spring ball saying we get 9 wins with this bunch? Last time I checked CJP has never been a HC, our Defense is Swiss cheese, and offensive line is beyond bad. The staff is praying we get O line transfers because they are so bad. 6 wins in my opinion or 7 maybe but probably not. 9 REG season wins means we are competing for the SECE (finishing 2nd behind UGA most likely) and I don't see that but hope you are right.

No OLine = No pass protection and no running

5 wins

I hope you’re right OP.

Good post OP....I don't know if we get 9 wins but I think we definitely go bowling this year.....OTOH Mclroy mentioned that we had at least 12 players who have started games last seaon that missed the spring game due to injuries. He said most of not all of them are expected to play on the fall and that we would see a completely different team this fall than what we seen during the spring game....so u may be right...the article is on 247...GBO
