...oh and I imagine the real polls will look different.
Saying that we'll go 14-0 is pretty wild, but 11-1 is a definite possibility. I've broken down the personnel, and I think we're in good shape. Let's take a look:
QB-Driskel needs to make better decisions and complete more passes. I think he also needs to throw the ball more accurately.
RB-Adding the top running back (Taylor) in the nation to an already-deep stable of 'backs makes this the deepest, most physical group in the country. I anticipate that Kelvin will lead the SEC in rushing this season.
WR/TE-Love moving Purifoy to this position. He'll be All-SEC, with a rising Quinton Dunbar to take the heat off. Kent Taylor provides big play, All-american ability at TE.
OL-I challenge you to find a better starting five in college football. If Garcia and Humphries are as good as expected, Florida looks to have one of the two or three best lines in the SEC.
DL-The return of "Diesel Dom" means it'll be hard to run the football against us. Either Bullard or Fowler can give us double-digit sacks off the edge, and a healthy Ronald Powell gives us the best defensive line in college football.
LB-Both Anzalone and McMillian are good enough to start right away, but they'll be hard-pressed to beat out Morrison and Ball. One of the SEC's finest groups.
CB-While everybody is excited about the return of Roberson, Hargreaves will be the best corner in the SEC by the end of the season. Keanu Neal should earn All-SEC, and I like the move of Watkins to FS. He has All-American ability.
ST-Debose is the best kick returner in America, and Christie is the best punter. We have the best special teams in the SEC.
I think we could lose to LSU. The South Carolina game will come down to whether or not Garcia can hold his own against Clowney. If he can, we destroy Carolina. 11-1 is pretty realistic at this point.
