    Ouch, I like the candid answers, but we arent highly regarded in this league. It even shows while CPJ was still there. Got a lot to prove this season IMO. If we can finish top 3 in the coastal, I will consider this year as a tremendous success.

    Yikes about the Offensive Line comments. But this is where our coaches make the big bucks. Just improve every week.

    I think we all knew the O Line was gonna be rough this year. But I believe that Brent Key is the best line coach in the country and he will have some studlies in there very soon!

    Good I hope everyone over looks us. I still say 7 wins and maybe 1 more. I don't think we will be that bad on offense if the OC calls plays to fit our players. As far as pass blocking now that we will throw short and medium passes you don't have to hold ( yes hold) you man as long. Don't grab his jersey or tackle him they won't call it , at least they didn't call it on the teams we played

    Exactly...some of these "hot takes" are just what the media and internet boards have been saying.

    No possession WRs ? we have more WRs than we do RBs, there are going to be some surprises coming to the conference if they really think like this about us !

    Here's what they had to say about our line in 2014: "They have some good running backs – they’ll always have that – but overall we felt they had one of the worst offensive lines in the league. There’s just not really an imposing or athletic presence there."

    I think these guys don't really have any perspective that's somehow new or worth much of anything.

    You know, these types of answers all depend on your frame of reference. If they are coming from a background of a vertical passing attack offense, then that is probably a valid statement. Instead if they look at it from the perspective of "who will do better having to pull every play and having to get out in space to block smaller, faster players?", then that statement is patently false - as we all saw by how well our offensive line played in 2014...

    I agree. Or made up. A kid on the Internet could have written that. Most of it doesn’t sound like a football knowledgeable person.

    Ugh, the Army DC is now at unc.

    We really need this oct 5 game.

    I am going to enjoy that game - we should be getting our " defense" act together by then.

    Lol. We beat most of these jokers who are saying we were asleep for a long time. Really? If that's true, then they must have been dead. With the exception of one or two programs, I don't think they are very realistic about themselves.

    Even Clemson can only claim to have owned us for the past four years...and they've owned almost everyone in that span. The five years before that it was even, and we owned them for the five or six years before that period. I guess you don't get to be a football coach by being particularly smart.

    i am pretty sure duke has owned us iirc the last 4-5 years

    Clemson certainly has

    Isnt miami like 3-1 vs us the last 4 years as well?

    I mean the last four years of gt football has largely been .500 ball.

    So for these coaches to say this is not a stretch to me and quit frankly our record in the last 4 years kinda shows.

    I read the quotes. And they seem to read not much different then posts here

    Defense slower less physical and not good. Yup

    OL an enigma and not very good. Yup

    Transitioning with old personnel could be a challenge. Yup. It could.

    No Te yup. True

    WR largely blocked and possession types that ran a limited route tree so we will see. Yup.

    We have all said the same darn things

    I thought that our 2014 o-line was amazing.

    We've lost to Clemson 7 of the last 9 years.

    Carry on.

    There’s no way a head coach within the conference knows so little about us that he would say we have no TE’s. A lot of this sounds way too catty and uninformed to be anyone who spends a great deal of time on the gridiron. Probably either random fans or even just fabricated quotes by the writer. Unless Cutcliffe said most of them; no statement is too petty for him.

    That was Trey Braun in '14, not Parker.
