Reports are out that Hunter Johnson of clemson is on the market. #1 QB from two years ago. Seen him play and practice multiple times. Kid is the real deal. Will have 3 years of eligibility.

I'd trade pretty much anyone we got right now for him.


I think he'll end up in the mid-west where he's from, Northwestern is actually one of the favorites as his brother played there, and he values education a bunch too.

Carter picked up full court defense on the third possession of the combine, god I love that guy.

I think he's talking about the preferred walk on spot for Tavis Lee out of Martinsburg if I'm not mistaken.

Personally I think Pitts will be a stud, as good as Worley. I think the first 11 will be good and if Dante Stills is a beast right away then we will be good on defense. The worry is that after a few injuries we really again have no depth and with 11 Power 5 games instead of 10 we will prob. by in a bad spot toward the later part of the season. ESPN FPI had us at 6 wins last year, and we won 7, but if Grier didn't get hurt prob, would of had 8. I think 8-4 is realistic for us, 2-1 out of conference and 6-3 league play. Though still early to say without seeing how preseason goes.


Yea I feel like we are overlooking the defense. I mean who in the nation wouldn't want David Long right now? We don't have to be amazing.


I think everybody would want David Long, I do believe we have some talent on the defensive side of the ball, but with the pace that the Big 12 plays, the fatigue as the season wears on, and we're just not THAT deep. The recruiting is coming along nicely, and we're building and growing but still need a couple more talented bodies for me to feel comfortable to be honest.

apizzle,

I hear you, but out of all the guys that transferred out, only Shuler was going to see much playing time this year. Word is McDougle wasn't going to play anyway due to rehabbing his shoulder. Losing him for 2019 and beyond will be felt, but 2018 wasn't going to matter for him.

Having said that, I'm cautiously non-pessimistic about DL and CB. If we can avoid any more injuries, I like the DE rotation of Rose, Donahue, Dante, and perhaps Robinson from Clemson, with Darius, Thrift, and Bam Bam Bigelow at nose. Throw in Pooler and Wolfley for a series here and there and that is a serviceable 9-man rotation up front without having to use Gmiter and Allen. CB looks more solid than last year, with Bailey, Long, and Mahone on one side with Washington, Fisher, and Pitts on the other. Everyone is one year older in the system with a transfer senior there. It won't be the 2015 D-backfield, but I think it can be serviceable. I think both units are pretty legit upgrades over last year's models, and last year the D kept us in every game but OU and OSU. Mayfield and Rudolph are gone this year.

LB is a little worrisome, but I think Long and Tonk will thrive. The Sam LB will be interesting, but it was last year too. All the D needs to do is hold serve. This bunch is at least capable of that.


Hmm, seeing it spelled out here makes me feel a little better, I'm really looking forward to seeing if Pitts can take a jump up, he looked pretty damn good towards the end of the season, and if he can step up, that would do wonders for us. A 9 man-rotation is important, we can't go in with just 5 people in the Big 12 and expect them not to fatigue with all of these high octane offenses, I'm just hoping we can get a little more pressure this year to take some pressure off our secondary.

Hopefully you're right, I'd love for this defense to take a step up from last year, because our offense has the ability to light up the score board on anybody, I think we'll find out a lot about us after Tennessee, I know they're reeling a bit, but it'll be nice to see how we look in an opener. Grier won't have a half of rust either, and we saw what we did to Tennessee last time he played them when he was with Florida, I'm a bit more optimistic now, but I think cautious.

Are we really that surprised?? After all the Adidas schools were implicated, I was just waiting on the axe to come down on Kansas.

Looks like ESPN has us projected for a 6-6 season this year. Feels a little low to me in the win column but I can't see how we are in the conference championship. Texas and Baylor should both be better but Texas will be a hard game. Unless we get the D lineman from Clemson I don't see how our D is any better than last year. The offense has to do 40/game like others have said or it's another long year.


It’s funny, the literal same day the headline on ESPN CFB page was that our offense will be the best in America. Then below that was the FPI which slates ya at 6-6 and 36th in the country. Meanwhile all their rankings outside of FPI had us as high as 11th and no lower than 18th (nearly every preseason site has us 12-20). So we shall see. If we truly were 10th or 11th I’d say with the losses of some DL guys we are closer to 20th right now. But with wins against UT and NCSU (which will be tougher IMO) we will be 10th when League play starts. My expectation is for us to play in the B12 title game. My dream is the playoff. I’d say based on the roster and the schedule we go 9-3 and finish 2nd or 3rd in the league


I'm usually really optimistic, but I think I'm becoming more in tune with reality these past few years. This defense is a dumpster fire right now, sure we got the big USC transfer and the UCLA transfer, but there's more holes in this defense than a slice of swiss cheese, I just don't know how it's going to be able to hold up and get us 9 wins, which really sucks because if McDougle and Shriner didn't transfer out, I would have felt miles better.

We still need more cornerback help, and linebacking help (I really don't think some DIII linebacker is going to make a huge difference for us next year, but who knows), and really just not looking promising....

Grier and the offense I think will take a step up, with TJ Simmons and Jovanni Haskins eligible to play now, and I do think they'll be insanely explosive, but it also still all depends on how much Spavital has learned from last season because his play-calling drove me up the wall. It wasn't fresh and innovative, and honestly I would have much rather had Dana just calling the plays.

I think we get lucky and hit 8 wins, but at the same time could see a 7-5 season, ceiling is 10 if EVERYTHING goes right from now on, but I truly can't remember the last time that's happened for us in any sport. *sigh*

Which of the DLs from Clemson are they closing in on?

Rumor has it Johnson (the more highly ranked recruit) might not have his academics in line and would possibly have to sit out a year. Robinson is immediately eligible though.


I'd take either, both played on one of the top three defensive lines in the country, going up against that in practice has to make you better and develop, and the lord knows we need some defensive line help. One of those guys with the Stills brothers sounds alright to me.

Good to address some CB depth, he was primarily a back up for UCLA which wasn't that great of a team, but a 3* coming out of high school, looks to provide some immediate help in that department, that's so far, lacking.

Same knee as well, that really blows for linebacking depth.

Might be good for him to get the hell out of New York, who knows, I still think he has potential, but just never put it together. Either way, a 10-12 year career as an NFL journeyman would have him seeing a whole helluva lot more money than I ever will.

Kansas was down 15 and scored on five straight possessions... after that they were down 17. At some point, you tip your cap, and just take your loss. When Nova plays like that, they're unbeatable. They were absolutely unconscious last night, that's a well oiled machine. Hard to hate them really.

3? Hell we already have three weapons at wide receiver alone that are proven. Not to mention Grier. Simmons would help but we have weapons all over on offense. Wish we had a few more on defense tho lol


Yeah, really hoping our defense takes a step up in the next year and these guys that got some valuable experience grow into some good players. This really is the year Dana needs to make some magic happen, and it's going to rely a lot on what Gibson can get out of the defense.

I also hope Spavital has sat down and had a hard look at what stupid **** he was doing on offense, and can go back to smarter game planning, we have some crazy wide receiver weapons, and we definitely should use them, but I hope to run the ball much more decently.

If you need a stream, just type into google "reddit NCAA basketball streams" they've had a ton up all tournament, and Grandma Streams who streams off YouTube has had the whole tournament up as well, just make sure you have Ad Blocker and Anti-Ad Blocker downloaded onto your Google Chrome and you're set!

Would love to see Steddy B back on the field, man has battled through some adversity. He was an incredible receiver for us, and I believe he possesses some tools to translate to a decent receiver at the next level as well.

Ah yes, let's not feed our guys meat and instead load them up with vitamin supplements because they need to be vegan. Scorching hot take there bud.

Gotcha, Just getting so tired of hearing about William Crest and how fans want to see him in games, seems like a good kid, but yeah he's a bust, lets move on.

It still boggles my mind how Dana or coaching staff choose High school QB prospects, did they watch film on him or do there due diligence? I don't think any other D-1 school saw Crest as a QB. They get these prospects like Chugs or Milliard that no other D-1 school wants, for a reason. I think Dana should not bother with high school QB prospects and stick with QB transfers. Coaching staff spends like 4 years to develop guys like Chugs and Milliard that aren't even good backup QB's. Just a waste of time and effort.


Though that is one thing Dana hasn't really figured out, which is boggling to me, it's been some bad luck as well. Cody Saunders looked damn good until he had to cut his career short, Ford Childress had all the signs of being a good QB, looked good in his first start, miles above Chugs, but never panned out, this Woodrow Lowe kid is supposed to be pretty good, but we'll see.

The good thing is, Dana adjusted and picked up big time QBs via transfer with Trickett doing a great job for a couple years, and Grier being well.. Grier. We don't know about Allison yet, but he was also highly ranked as a transfer, we'll know more after the Blue/Gold game. If this is how we get talent, I'm not complaining, because we aren't going to out recruit blue bloods, and there's only a handful of Elite QBs that can master our system.

Clemson lost two guys off their team to grad transfers: Sterling Johnson and Jabril Robinson. They're loaded on the DL. Worst comes to worst, those guys practiced with the best for 3-4 years and have seen what it takes.

Absolutely think we should attempt to try to take a flier on these guys, playing for a national champion, on a incredibly loaded D-Line means they know how to prepare for practice, and that type of mentality bleeds over to other people. Getting some champion mindsets in the team can only be beneficial.
