For years now, I have been very patient with this team. However, at this time of the season, we are usually painfully deficient in one or two critical areas that I have to put on my garnet glasses and hope to change my own opinion on things. For example, last year it was the safety spot, and special teams. Also, Spurrier never seemed too confident in his team. This year every thing seems to be rocking and rolling along,and besides punting, I have no real concerns with this team. It feels so akward. Are my glasses extra garnet this year? Has all the sunshine pumping dulled my sense of reality? Moderators or someone, please help!
We're going to win the NC. You're fine.
Be concerned about punting, DB depth and replacing Alshon. I would definitely not expect the OL to destroy opponents either. All are very big question marks.

Spurrier was extremely confident in last years team. Very confident at media days.
I would say the concern is at the safety spot next to and behind swearinnger. Also agustes health and depth are concerns at cb. Legree still has plenty to prove as well as Christian.
Hard to tell about wr. Rave reviews about them in practice, but it didn't transition in games last year. Ace has to be the leader and Byrd and ellington need to be more complete in games.
All other areas seem pretty solid. Maybe dt depth. Be interested to see news on dukes dioxins and green once full contact starts.

Special teams anyone???
Pleasework, you should be concerned about our longsnapper, Coleman Harley, letting all of the preseason hype get to his head. He has the world at his fingertips, but him knowing that is a concern. We also are very thin on the clarinet in the band. We have a sophomore, and two freshmen behind her. That is something that is hard to overlook.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.

You're soakin wet!!
I guess I understand people not wanting to get too happy too fast, but what have we heard out of practice so far that we never heard last year? That the QB's are getting the ball out fast and that they're making good decisions. Then on top of that we're mostly hearing something along the lines of "so and so makes a great catch despite great coverage due to a great throw". Everyone seems to be on point already and practice has just begun. It seems like this is the first year in a long time where practice has started like this. To me, that means something.
We are going to the ship
