      Gonna turn a lot of heads


    Travis Tisdale is SUCH an SEC football name.

    Hope he competes and plays.

    This is a good group; then add Wilson as a run-threat and we should be able to maintain a significant run-game.

      I can definitely hear one of the Dave’s calling that name a bunch in the old JP Sports days.

    Rose can’t run through contact but he has break away speed. I’d run Smoke and Rodriguez between the tackles.

      We should have used King or Rose more last year like when we had Boom and Snell together. It would have been nice to have someone help gas the opposing front seven even a little bit to make their life tougher trying to bring down Benny, especially later in the game.

    AJ is a good RB, proved that last year

    I’m very excited with our group of RBs. Different strengths and styles, you’ve always got a fresh back for the D to deal with. If they open of our offense, we could put up some impressive numbers.

    We have 2 receivers that can make the big catch and the everyday catch. We’ve got 2 others that are almost there. We may have 2-3 solid TEs that can do that as well. We’ll have 4 backs that can break it and perhaps go the distance. 2 good QBs (if Hoak stays), with one that can break off a run to the house.

    If they work hard in the off season, they could be SEC ready.

    Defense needs some work, but also just needs some of the signees on campus to add some depth. Theyll need to be 2-3 deep so that the offense can go no huddle/up tempo 75% of the time. Would be great if they could switch up their tempo where the D cant guess their rhythm, get them off balance and some free yards on neutral zone infractions.


    1. notFromhere

      To go uptempo, though, they will need online depth and at least 6 solid receivers (WR and TE) that can block and finish when the ball comes their way on the field with every snap.
