    I see CGC having a good year in 19, meh year in 20, bad 21, then up hill from there. I am not in love with the OC . I don't love the OC, but love the Dabo strategy in the ATL .Given enough cash, CGC will make us nationally competitive year in and out .Our rise will weaken Clemson and UGa. But first Duke, UNC, and USC. Then Auburn.

    Unless they are just horrible you don’t do that on the OL unless you want your QB in a body caste

    That sounds like the Pastner regression strategy.

    Exactly. Its much harder to move somebody completely out of the way than keep them from running over you. I much preferred pass blocking. Only problem was we passed about as much as CPJ did.

    There will be some switching just not as much as the OP said. Really depends on how well they can grasp playbook.

    I disagree. Personal preferences aside, there’s a reason why LT get drafted and paid vs. the other positions.

    And the 2018 class might have all Americans and actual draftees. The 2007 class was only had hopefuls at the time too.

    It will, but you don't typically build your team around a punter and a kick returner.

    I checked my crystal ball. It says that class will have multiple draftees and that the transition to the new offense will be smooth as glass.

    I see CGC’s enthusiasm as kind of a sugar high in ‘19. Then the switchover in talent taking a toll on team chemistry and experience. That is 20-21. Then an upward trajectory. I think CGC will handle things a LOT better than NCSt’s coach. I don’t see the wasted years they have had.
