    Not worried at all about Roberson being out, except that I was hoping Purifoy would get some time on offense. I am very excited about Hargreaves returning punts. He's sure handed, has a quick first step and blazing top end speed. I wonder if there is any talk about him helping out on offense. He was probably one of the top three WRs in the country last year. We have four or five very dependable DBs and maybe two dependable WRs.

    I get that Poole is considered the "NB", but that's essentially just another name for a corner. Anyway, he'll be in the rotation. We're fine.

    I dont know if I agree with that. Elam was our starting nickle last year but I do see where you are coming from. Poole could certainly play CB if needed.

    I'm actually more concerned about Showers than anyone else. There really is no backup there since he's a situational RB. He's probably our best WR at this point and at least some of his running plays will go to Patton who is pretty easy to take down.

    Florida has to be the only team in America that can come off a bye week less healthy than the previous game.

    Most of his plays are pretty specific to him, so I suspect we won't run them at all. He hasn't caught any passes on traditional routes that I recall and has been used mostly out of the backfield, which we won't do with Patton.

    It depends on what you're trying to do schematically. The staff was creative with how they used Elam last year. There were times when he was basically used as a linebacker. LSU did a good job of utilizing Tyrann Mathieu.

    But a traditional nickel back generally is a third corner.

    We took a lot more hits today. Too many injuries for us to survive a tough SEC schedule!

    Who'd have thought we could sit that many players plus Driskel and win this game decisively. Imagine how strong we'll be when everyone is back.
