The fact we did not make the title game this year is sticking in the craw of a lot of players. They want to correct that.

Good to have them both back. Need to have them & the rest of the D watch the Peach Bowl to see Cincy's intensity on D. We need that effort. I'm convinced we'll have a better offense coming in. Couple that with an elite D & we'll be hard to beat.

With a new quarterback? I find that hard to believe.

You have two high rated QBs with P5 game experience on campus in January. Reason to be optimistic, reason for hope.

Agree, the competition will make the eventual starter better. But more than that, I think we'll have a team not thinking they're missing their star running back & star receiver plus we have some solid returning players, solid redshirts & great recruiting class. Looking forward to it. And hopefully the staff can adjust the play calling too.

So we will be better offensively after losing our best quarterback of all time?

BW was good but our running game was weak this season. I expect a better run game next year & better defense. That could easily make for a better team & record next season.

I'm always concerned too with a new QB but we've had to 3 good ones in a row. My primary concerns are about whether the staff can adjust it's offensive approach given the talent on the field. I didn't think we did that very well this season. Maybe Gainwell & Gipson were just that much better but we seemed to have very poor run-pass balance this past season & virtually no big play runs compared to the past 2-3 yrs. If our QB can at least be a threat to run that will help too. It would give use another dimension we haven't had since P Lynch. Expecting the D to take a step up too.

Our weakened running game is why I gained even more appreciation for Brady White this season. And our much-maligned O-line.

Agree BW did a phenomenal job given the run game was poor & he was throwing to all new receivers.
