Several of those dudes seriously do not look like college football players.






You rang?

That offensive line is simply going to abuse people this year.  I haven't been in the loop enough to know who is going to step into that RG spot, but my hope is that whoever it is, they develop a combo block with Risner like we saw this last year.  That was a thing of beauty.

Between sending Barnes, Silmon, and McCoy through the line and bruising linebackers and safeties, and Ertz being a threat on the zone read and option, this team was going to be formidable in the running game even before you factor in the really, really talented receivers.

If the defense is even serviceable, I think the floor for this team is ten wins.  I really believe that.  I'm just floored at the amount of offensive talent this team has.  I think there are at least five potential draft picks on the offensive side (Barnes, Dimel, Pringle, Risner, Frantz).  Hell, I think Dayton Valentine could get drafted in the late rounds if he has a decent pro day.  And I'm not even considering guys we haven't seen yet like McCoy and Strickland.

I really want to say 10+ wins should be the "expectation" in the regular season, but I can't shake the idea that I'm being too optimistic. Hope I'm not. This team should be disciplined enough to win games that were narrow losses last year (WV and Okie State). At Texas is gonna be huge. There's no reason we shouldn't be undefeated going into that one, and if we can get out of Austin with a win, I think people outside Manhattan will really start to pay attention. That said, I'm obviously fine flying under the radar as long as we can.

I don't want to fly under the radar. I want to be rated as high as possible.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

This team is experienced enough that a high ranking won't faze them.  Ertz, Reed, Risner, etc. will be strong leadership from preventing that.

The higher the ranking the better.

Fair enough. Really interested to see how this offense stacks up to 2012 or 2014. Even during Snyder 1.0, I struggle to remember having this many weapons in EVERY area...

Posted in the recruiting thread, but I'll post it here too.

Daniel Green is not here yet. He didn't qualify. Looks like 2 years at a JUCO for him.

Sure hope it doesn't parallel the Biblical Sampson.  Well, unless his final act is destroying the stadium in Atlanta after winning the Natty.

Daniel's lack of response to the question is very telling  :frown:
