    It’s been a very long time, but looking at our quarterback roster compared to the rest of the SEC for 2020, we have to be right up there at the top. If Tua and Fromm go Pro, that would definitely put us at the top in the SEC. Somehow someway the offensive line has to get it figured out. Nonetheless, could be an exciting year with 2 Sr. quarterbacks & a 3rd yr QB who can all move the offense. Oline and Dline (mainly Oline but need Dline depth) will be either our breakthrough to the SEC East and SEC championship/playoffs or continue to be the Achilles’ heel.

    Other than Buchanan, the entire OL is back and now has starting experience. Pass protection has been good. Run blocking is of course what has sucked. Can they get bigger and stronger under Savage? Can any of the redshirt freshman or true freshman step up next year? Any grad transfers that can start immediately?

    You think Tua goes pro? I don't.

    I agree with your other sentiments.

    Dont see Fromm going. Think Trask has a better chance than Fromm. Geo would be so good with Fields. Yes he looked good yesterday but against GT.

    I agree with you, but lets not forget that SOS had Wiley Rich at center on the 96 natty team. He weighed in at 267

    I may be wrong but I don’t get the warm and fuzzies from knowing most of the o line returns. Run blocking is an attitude that we lack. Don’t know if that’s Hevesy’s fault or just that their incapable of it. I liked gouriage and white , thought they showed promise actually moving people. I hope some of the younger guys that are there already and or coming in have it in their dna. I’ll take some mishaps here and there to have a better run game overall. I think it will serve dans tendencies well.

    To be fair Jeff Mitchell was the center and there were concerns about Wiley in that game replacing an injured Mitchell. Not to mention we are also speaking about almost a quarter of a century ago. Players have gotten bigger. The Cowboys o-line in the 90's was touted as the heaviest line ever and now they would be the lightest. TImes change.

    Will be interesting for sure. I thought Emory had some amazing throws last night. I love Trask, think it helped to have such amazing wrs (who doesn’t benefit ya know) I’m curious to see with al the departures of wrs, if Mullen sticks with him due to lack of experience and depth at wr next year

    I don’t know why the OL performance this year was so shocking to some. It was pointed out by nearly everyone before the season that this was weakest unit on the team. If anything, I was surprised how well they did in pass protection... since that usually takes longer to develop.

    I do think Tua goes pro. He will be a top 10 pick. Especially considering his injury this year...I doubt he risks coming back.

    If I were an NFL manager, I would be very concerned about Tua's injuries. I don't think I would chance it.

    Not sure he’ll be a top 10 pick with his hip injury, first round though, yes.

    And if I was recruiting against Bama, I would focus how they don’t give a rats arse about players health. Tua has been ruined, in my opinion, by doing these surgeries and rushing him back to play in games.

    You can tell that Tua's been coached by Bammers to pound the company line about how wonderfully he's been treated by everyone.

    Fromm had a bad year with these WR he has. He will not have Swift next year, meaning his leading receiver is gone.

    He's gone

    Well didn’t see that coming with Franks. We are a little skinnier in the QB room. Still in the top 3 pending what Fromm and Tua do.

    I agree 100%, but Wiley held his own in that game. Of course Jeff got em there. I'm just making a point that a player with great heart can do great things and some talented players just try to get by on talent alone. That's why some coaches go after a player that is a bit undersized and work on him in the wt room because he plays with tenacity.

    good point. I would take a player with work ethic and a little talent than talent and little work ethic. Ritch did a great job for us and is a great Gator

    Fromm stinks. He’s a mid round pick AT best. If Lock was a mid round pick with his stats, Fromm would go 5th-6th round. He’s not going anywhere
