    A lot of Oliver's problem was low snaps in shotgun.

    The goal line one was the official had not signaled the ball being ready for play.

    Pretty clear Oliver has the best chance to win. He's the best scrambler and throws a good ball when he has protection.

    Do you think the type offense we saw last night is going to pull in the 1st and 2nd round NFL draft picks everyone is counting on? Our starting QB had 20 carries and 9 attempts (Etienne had 12 carries, Trevor Lawrence had 23 attempts). What we did last night was what recruits saw.

    Seems like I remember AL moved the ball on them, but couldn't do crap inside the 10, sort of like us.

    As matter of fact every year it took about 4 games to start clicking.

    The shotgun on short stuff was painful to watch given our previous identity, but I wouldn't worry about it.

    Clemson literally had the #1 defense in the nation last year and at the moment has more NC momentum as a program than Bama.

    Surely we all knew that Collins was not a time-tested HC and was going to face a learning curve, right? Y'all relax, last night was good for everyone in the program.

    Recruits see players who they will be replacing. Gleason is a pro style QB who had offers to play at UGA, UNC, WVU, etc. Our current QBs had offers to play other positions.

    What is your point? Coaches sell recruits, particularly quarterbacks, on their vision for how they will be used. The old staff convinced Vad Lee that he would be more than just an option QB, for instance.

    Different players bring different skill sets. This isn't going to be Calvin Booker trying to run the triple option.

    We did literally every single time last year with the same people. So, yes.

    We were also only 16 point underdogs last year, and Lawrence was making his first career start.

    My point is that if we keep rolling out that same offense we ran last night until early signing day...they ain't signed until they've signed.

    I agree that we will need to open it up, but regardless of how the offense performs for the remainder of this season, the guys we're targeting are aware that we're in a transition.

    While I would agree with you, the comments I kept reading last night certainly didn't indicate that very many people remembered that.
