    We're going from the first of the worst, to worst of the first, this year.

    We had a large contingent of people on here bitching about year 1 results and saying the coach sucked because CPJ definitely would have taken this group bowling. Then we had an intelligent contingent of people saying we sucked ass across both lines and this season was doomed from the start...this actual data seems to support one of those theories.

    Probably a little bit of both. Johnson might have been able to get 3 more wins out of the 2019 schedule even with the bad OL and DL play. And we probably wouldn’t have been booty blasted so bad by UGA with a possession reducing offense out there.

    I'm not confident CPJ gets last season's team gets to a bowl... add in the Citadel and trade Miami's win with another loss on the schedule. Better odds against VT? I don't see enough.

    Curious to see how previous years OL were graded... high in run blocking and poor in pass blocking.

    Probably beat Temple. Their HC would have been bad

    Couldn't beat USF in 2018, so probably not.

    Some quick searching didn't turn up a the same article for 2018, but I did find one the rated all of the ACC OLs after week 8 of 2018, and they had us at 6 of 14.

    In all seriousness, both us and Temple started off 2018 pretty poorly but rebounded to have decent seasons. Probably would have been a close game.

    Interesting that FSU was #129 and Vanderbilt was #128 in that same list.

    100% agree. CPJ recruited 2 OL in his last 2 years here. It was going to be rough regardless, and he knew it. Retiring when he did gave the new coach the chance to blame a bad year on the transition, and I'm as grateful to CPJ for that as I am miffed at his OL recruiting. Trading Braun for Southers, then having Kenny Cooper and Jahaziel go down with injuries didn't help.

    Moreover, folks on this board can expect improvement in 2020, but it won't be until 2021 that we can really judge Coach Key's work here. The cavalry is coming but the cavalry is true freshmen next year. Transfers like Johnson are a bandaid, but we need homebodies that grow up in Coach Key's system.

    He's rated higher than any of our returning starters. Sucks to be Vandy, though.

    are you counting the 2 OL PJ got commits from for the class of 19 who didn't come here after all? Had PJ stayed for 19, they likely wouldn't have played (PJ really, really didn't like playing true freshmen unless he had no choice but to because of numbers or because they were that much better than everyone else at their spot).
    Losing Braun - who was pretty damn good in the old system - certainly didn't help last year's line one iota. The Cooper and Lee injuries were killers. Any team losing three returning starting OL after the end of the previous season is gonna struggle.
    For s---- and giggles, I rewatched the 2018 Louisville game the other night. Ok, there was nothing else at all on. Not even any good porn.
    But the line that night just straight up cut Louisville in half.

    It is as if you guys can't even look up simple stuff (or think no one else will). CPJ signed 6 OL his last 2 years here.
    2018:
    Mike Maye 6'3"
    Harrison Jump 6'5"

    2017:
    Mike Minnihan 6'2"
    Zach Quinney 6'5"
    Connor Hansen 6'2"
    Charlie Clark 6'4"
