I guess I'd prefer playing teams that use a system that relies on very specific talent in order to be successful, and bombs otherwise, be it Meyer's Florida or Malzhan's Auburn.
When teams use good 'ol fashioned beat-the-guy-across-from-you football and can recruit well, they beat you from time to time.
When teams use once in a generation players, they beat you once in a generation.
They'll be better on offense, but not much better:
QB: The players are the same, even if all 3 make big improvements, they're still not SEC caliber.
RB: They have about 10 on the roster, but the only 2 that matter are Dyer and McCaleb. Dyer's excellent and McCaleb is to if he gets in space.
WR: Emory Blake and a bunch of clowns who emulate their coach.
TE: Lutz, who is very good and a couple young guys who may or may not play next year.
LT: John Sullen probably moves to LT if G. Robinson can't get it done.
LG: Chad Slade
RG: Mack or Westerman
RT: JUCO transfer Will Latu
Anytime you lose 2, 2 year starters at tackle its not good. Although a year older, their o-line could take a step back.
yeah I was looking at their returning starters too - their OL could take a hit - it definitely wont be better. The success of their WR's is greatly affected by their terrible QB's - Trotter is the only one that can throw the ball (kinda). Dyer and McCaleb are a good tandem - but I am not sure they can be the only 2 weapons in that offense.
Bottom line - they probably wont be much better on offense next year.
Now that other programs have seen this year's offense and his ditty wife, he'll never be worth what he was last year. Should have gotten out when he could; now he's stuck there in Aubbieland.
