This team has more quality linemen. Both offensive and defensive lines are much better. This team may not have running back stars like McFadden, Jones and Hillis, but they have great young backs with speed and power. I think this could be the best defense since Monte Kiffen’s during the beginning of the Holtz era.
Greg McElroy talked last night about Stromberg having to play as an undersized kid. Now he’s the preseason all-SEC center and playing like it.
So now you’d have to think we run the table in NC games. That’s four wins (the stumbling point is Ga Southern on Saturday). Only takes repeating our three SEC wins last year to go 7-5.
About that stumbling point: Florida State lost to an FCS team last night for the first time since 1959, and it wasn’t even a good FCS team. So anybody can beat anybody. Where is that Mike Norvell fan club anyway?
I just got the details on the Florida State game. Jacksonville State threw a 59 yard touchdown pass on the last play of the game to win. Wasn’t a Hail Mary either; guy caught the ball about the 20, cut back and scored.
