    Who's healthy at DB for the Miami game?

    Also, would Amari Burney be playing Safety, Star, or Linebacker? What about Iverson Clement?

    I know we have some depth issues at DB... It'd be nice to know just how deep we are.

    Hendo, Wilson, Dean, Taylor, Stiner/Davis for starters. Then kimbrough, Elam/hill, burney, ? , stiner/Davis.

    So writing it out, we are paper thin but it's a very strong paper.

    Hmmm seems like the panic always sets in a couple weeks before kickoff. My question is when has our defense ever been truly, I mean fsu embasrring weak. Even in our worst years our defense has always stood up to the challange! At times they made our offense look respectable ala 2012. The defense seems to always step up, offense not so much, meh. But we have CDM leading this team and it’s going to be a helluva ride!

    Henderson being out for UGA last year cost is that game. Their TE killed us deep in the second half.

    Yep, that hurt us big time. We certainly did not have our signature strong DB play that we typically have against UGA. We've beaten them several times when they've been much better....solely because of the dynamic between our DBs and their QB.

    Probably:

    CB: C.J. / Elam
    CB: Marco / Kimbrough or Hill
    FS: Davis / Lenton
    SS: Stiner / Taylor
    STAR: TD / Burney

    I’m guessing Stewart is out. Don’t know how bad that shoulder Taylor was dealing with is at this point but he may not start because of it.

    Forgot about Lenton, i think he is better than he gets credit for. That alleviates some of my concern with Safety. Their tight-end Mallory worries me a lot, i hope Burney just keys on him and shuts him down.

    When Clement was not listed in some RB -4 deep depth charts, even behind a true freshman, I figured he was destined to move back to the secondary, where he helped out last year.

    Two articles this week about Davis and Perine, list Clement as the 4th running back, so I guess we will see him on offense.

    Good news is scUM is about a far from Fromm dropping dimes at QB as one could get. Our advantage at DL vs their OL will also help smooth out any in game problems that were to arise at DB.

    The DB depth issue will be a bigger risk as the season wears on, but match ups favor us in game 1.

    This would be a great year for the offense to step up and have us playing from 10+ points up most of the time to help cover the D.

    First game suspensions seem to be the norm and I am not expecting to see Stewart. I just hope that there are no additional suspensions at positions lacking depth specifically the secondary and offensive line.

    Since we don't have a week-1 game, any suspensions should be served the following week. If that aggravates our rivals, that's a feature not a bug.;)

    Can talk about our depth in the secondary -- and with good reason -- but I just saw Canes lost another DB (Bethel) to the portal this week (second one). That leaves them with 5 scholarship CBs on the roster

    Guess we'll go 5-Wide and check out their Dime package.

    See ya’ll, this happens to everyone these days.

    And I suspect we’ll go 5-wide the 2nd half.

    The hallmark of SOS teams was to stretch and exhaust the defense by throwing often in the first half and then pound them on the ground in the second half.

    I suspect SOS has Mullen's ear on this, so 5 wide from the get go

    People are downplaying Taylor’s shoulder. Without Stewart and possibly Taylor we could have some real problems.

    Kyrie Campbell is reported as day to day with a groin pull. Didn't hear about any suspensions but we always seem to have a few that aren't announced until the day of the game.
