Well they use them all. People often say on here, "Just run the #### ball!". Well. you have to utilize all positions or they bolt. If we want to be WRU, we can't JUST run the #### ball. We need to be balanced to recruit and keep them around. I like what we do....or attempt to do actually.
Burton, and J.T. Daniels for that matter, didn't go in the portal until Stetson "Screech" Bennett announced he was returning to UGA. Kirby has a "don't throw it unless you have to" mentality as a coach. Daniels was 7-0 as a starter before getting hurt. That being said, I think our QB play pushed us in that direction this past season. I hope DJ gets it figured out or Cade is successful but with the flexibility of the portal I fear you'll see many WR's flocking to schools that are more capable of passing. Having a sophomore QB with a Heisman is pretty good recruiting bait to a kid wanting to prove they have something for the NFL.
Really bc Burton has hardly lived up to the hype yet and did you see LSU's defense last year? Highly touted guys want to play and if those guys don't become starters I guarantee you they'll be in the portal again. Some neglect to understand the mindframe of a guy willing to give up on their team and enter the "me first" portal. Thos type of kids are emotionally weak and don't handle adversity. Clemson doesn't need to be Bama and Clemson has never had Bama depth. Clemson doesn't need Bama's depth they need an elite 33 and they have that. That's how you can beat any team in the country in a 1 game setting. Saban, Smart, Jimbo and coaches like that are willing to sell their soul to win. If that's what you want and you want to complain about what Clemson does and doesn't do then why are you a fan? I never understand those that complain all the time. If you're that unhappy quit watching. If you're willing to sell your soul to win then you need to follow a new team bc that isn't happening here under Dabo. Sorry but I just get amazed at some so called fans.
Well said TA. If you have been around for the last 10 years then you already know how Dabo operates and again it’s going to have to be I feel a big need on getting in portal guys. Honestly believe HJ came back to end up coaching or something even though we were in desperate need of some depth.
TigerAidan......THANK YOU! Well said sir! Agree with you 100%! Everybody needs to stop acting like these transfers are the cream of the crop heisman candidates, which they are not. Very few are transferring and having better success at the new school they choose, so I for one am glad Dabo does it the way he does it. Go Tigers!
Obviously because they can. Would a portal talented wr rather play for what they saw from Bama last year or what they saw from us? We can't get those guys. They would be wasting their talent and lowering their chancing of making a fortune in the draft. It's that simple. Our O was terrible. They look at Bama and they think $$$$.
