Why you gotta go there? :)

Seriously though, quite the progression considering where our defense has been in recent history.

as to the defense specifically...hard to ignore all the returning production on the DL, and the incoming talent that should give some more depth.

same on the back end, in the secondary. aside from losing Warrior, we have a lot of depth and talent, and now experience at corner....safeties and nickel should should be really good too.

LB has some questions, but depth got better. and HT is a stud....expecting Crouch and JJP (hopefully) and Deandre Johnson to step up.....

the only thing we don't have, at least as a "known" commodity, is that elite edge rusher....couple of the rookies may develop in to that....Joseph, Baron...... but, the way pruitt and ansley have dialed up pressure this past season....we were still effective at getting in to the backfield on run blitzes and affecting the QB.

our defense should be legit......

UGA may have the best defense....but not sure they're gonna do well at scoring points.

I'm surprised we are so high after losing who we lost. That's reason for optimism for sure
we didn't lose all that much on defense, numbers wise.

bituli, taylor and warrior....that's really it. everybody else is basically back and we get gooden back from injury on the DL.

not to discount how well those three played last year, they did and that's production that will be missed......and leadership.

but still returning 75% (probably more when you consider overall productive depth returning) of the total production, with budding stars in HT, thompson, taylor, crouch etc....

yeah, lots to be excited about.

OU for the #2 offense is a bit far fetched. They have to replace the quarterback. And I know they have some highly rated kids there, but none of them have played. Is Rattler the heir apparent there?

I think he is. They're pretty high on him.

If this ranking is close then it ought to be an interesting match up.

I think we win this game honestly. If JG(HB probably) can manage the games we win a lot that we would have lost by 2+ scores in recent years. GBO ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ๐ŸŠ

If we have a top scoring D, then we shouldn't have any loses to any bad or soso teams. This also means we shouldn't be out of any games against the upper echelon either. May the orange ball in the sky shine brightly on the Big Orange this season.
