For all the talk about TEs Mullen doesn't use them much. I know, it's up to the QB. We will however waste a few important downs on designed QB runs between guard and tackle after which the camera will pan to CDM as he examines his play chart on the sideline where if not for holding the play chart with two hands he would be scratching his head. Seriously, save this post and prop me in October. Me too. All of us. Seems that way but maybe we don't pressure? Rush three or four? Base Grantham D seems like what killed us last season. And on any passing down might as well just block a TEs out of the play. Maybe. Remains to be seen. But so far, so good. The one thing I'll say about LSU is even Vandy scored 38 points on their defense. That's pretty damn sloppy. Our defense should, in fairness, slow LSU's offense considerably. So yeah, we have a chance. The one caveat to those games is how healthy we are. We are not deep(don't get me started on this staff's recruiting). We have to be healthy on both lines of scrimmage and DBs. Remember last season vs georgia a couple DBs made all the differenc(so we say). It would be the same this season. Do we know what that money is used for? I don't understand what would be included in a recruiting budget. Surely we already pay our staff all they need to visit recruits as much as necessary and allowed?
