We did exceptionally well everywhere EXCEPT DL. We better get 3-4 DL studs next year if we are going to be a force by 2021. A couple of key injuries to the DL and we'll get steamrolled by a lot of teams this year. It's a glaring weakness on our roster right now. Hate that we lost Cox. Don't think anyone saw that coming. Wouldn't have been surprised to see him sign with AU. Wonder if he was "incentivized" to sign with Ole Miss?
We lost a ton a Dline. I am hoping there were some guys behind them developing and getting stronger!

Nobody has said he won't except all these shade tree MDs here on VN. He very well may not play again, that said the UTAD, Pruitt, Fulmer, and more importantly Trey himself have given zero indication he'll be doing anything other than running through the T come the fall.
No, Remy. He's through with contact sports. How much would you like to wager? I won't bore you with my decades of clotting problems...very lucky to have survived well more than just a few DVTs, PEs, aortic damage and a stroke. However, due to my orange-blooded desire for this youngster to put that power T helmet on again, whilst visiting my cardiologist, Dr. Chetan Patel who's chief of cardiology at Duke University Hospital, I explained Trey's situation and asked if there was any way...any new miraculous anticoagulent...that could make it OK for him to play football again. Without going into his incredulous response, ol' Chet made it clear that to even suggest he'd be playing the game ever, ever again, is sheer stupidity. Sorry, bro. Ain't gonna happen.

It MAY turn out for you to be correct, my position is and has been I simply do not know. I do KNOW several tjhings though. Neither Trey, Pruitt, UTAD, or Fulmer has come forwartd and indicated he will not be playing next season. I KNOW a good physician would never ethically make a call about a patient that he/she has not personally examined. However I also know this was the exact same BS people just like you piped about Trey all last off season and he ran through the T and played. Whatever happens I and I'm sure along with you want whatever is best for the young man. Trey decided last year what was best was him playing when shade tree MDs on VN had written him off. It's illogical and childish to make a medical call about a kid if A. you're not a physician in the discipline under which the young man is being treated. B. you've not personally examined said young person and know all of his medical history. It's why shade trees looked foolish last year.

Those particular shade tree MD's are pretty well informed.

Just Funning with the wordplay! No disrespect!

Welcome to the Big Orange Family! We are on our way back! Thanks Coach Pruitt.
I hope we're heading up as if powered by a cluster of five F-1 engines. However, remember this class needs to be prepped for going up against seasoned SEC vets. There's no magic wand for this. Next year at the latest, they should be really making their presence felt.

This is an opinion based in, or on, what?
Based on the 247 definition of a five star player which says immediate impact player. Also on the fact second season for 12 to 15 linemen in the Friend system and second off season in weight training program. If none of this makes a difference then we'll never be better.

If Trey’s clots could be traced directly to a recent surgery or event (really long flight were mobility was an issue etc) then I might POSSIBLY entertain the thought of his return but EVERYTHING we know so indicates a much deeper probable hereditary propensity for clotting. Probably will be on thinners the rest of his life. Wish you well Trey!!!

Odd that you stated that no good physician would ever ethically make a call about a patient that he/she had not personally examined. Why? Dr. Chetan Patel is the current president of the U.S. physicians board of ethics. Neither you, nor the UTAD talking head,s nor Pruitt or Fulmer. know as much as does one of the world's most esteemed heart doctors.Re-read Tennrich's reply. He's got it right. I don't wish to argue with anyone with good intentions...as are you; only attempting to alliterate medical common sense to one of my long-time Volnational friends. If you consider us illogical or foolish,you're just stretching a bit. You've just been given common sense understandings from some of us who've been through some things that you haven't...hopefully never will...and the Doctor I've quoted is considered one of the best heart failure and heart transplant specialists on this planet. Recurrent blood clots in an otherwise healthy patient present ominous possibilities. Trey Smith is done playing football. Period. 'Not kidding here...make a wager. I'm good for it.

He’s playing a sport at a level and position to where he is gauranteed to have life altering CTE, not to mention other life long ailments that come with playing in the trenches in the SEC.

Blood clots ain’t s**t.
Dude! I’d call that stupid but you did all the legwork. 😒

You don’t have to possess a doctorate to have experience on the subject. Had no idea what the fuss was about til it hit home. If Trey’s experience is the ultimate outlier, then hallelujah...very happy. Never seen someone with multiple clot issues ever given a clear bill to go off anti-coagulants in their lifetime...much less play contact sports.

Let's hope Trey Smith does play again, but I'm not too optimistic at this point,are you?
I don’t want him to ever play another down of football. We would all feel terrible to see his lifeless body carried off the field due to a serious condition we all knew he had. It’s to big of a chance to take. Blood clot killed my 1st cousin while playing basketball. It’s serious business.
