Yep. Can literally only go down from here... But hopefully the drop-off isn't crazy.

Saban knows he's on the 1-2 year rental plan, and is embracing it. O'Brien in a less prominent role will be good for his personality

Honestly I'm surprised that an assertive coach who took his team to the playoffs almost every year he was at Houston would take the job as our OC. Really speaks volume about the state of our program.

I can't really recall anything that stands out about him, but I know he did a good job with Penn State. If Deshaun Watson wasn't such a primadonna he may still be with the Texans. I look forward to this hire if it works out. I know there is no way to reach the heights we did this season with Sarkesian, so that is wiped from my mind. He'll be given the keys to the Ferrari, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do with so many weapons.

Well...theoretically ...going undefeated back to back is near impossible ....
But we could get a few "game changers." Back ...thats not expected...
Like we did this year......
I dont see anybody that’s bringing more back...especially teams on the road games
AU is decimated .... look at all leaving team...
AnM...Mond gone...
MSU...lol
Florida...Trask gone...big TE gone.... @94 Grad ..... Florida more threat than AnM

Miami in opening game.... really?

so, schedule is good for a run...

Didn’t see much from a true freshman with no spring ball and limited Fall ball coming into games with limited reps and to mostly hand the ball off after a game is over? What were you expecting to see?

I think he’ll be just fine. I doubt he’ll be Mac accurate, but it’ll be fun to see his mobility for a change of pace.

Regardless of who starts... we’ll be fine.
