33, what about that one guy that is a complete surprise! One that could make a difference? Just a question as I have agreed with your statements for longer than this board!
well, i am not sure what you mean here. So last year godhigh was a surprise...7 wins. Year before Orwin did well. 7 wins or 8 (can't remember off the top). Last year smelter played solid, not prolific like Bebe, solid...7 wins.
I guess my point is we have surprise but they aren't sammy watkins. So its relative. The starting talent on this team is good enough for 9 wins. Last year...it was not. But the problem is DL depth. OL depth at spots...if we don't think we are thin at tackle we are not looking. Thin at BB bigtime, lets face it if laskey goes down connors is not good enough to carry the team and the other guy may be some day but still is a freshman.
Point being....lets say gotsis goes down for the year. So does Griffin at OT. And then Green is out for half the season. and Laskey misses 4 straight games....this is all really possible and really we won't recover...
All I am saying is I have yet to see a GT team go through a season unscathed since maybe 2008...or 09...and so key injuries will happen....that is why i feel like 7 or 8 again this year. I hope I am wrong.
Now if a guy goes down for a game or 2...thats fine...not talking about that..I am talking about significant injury impact
