The difference between good and great is quality depth.

We're on the verge of having it everywhere. The one exception is perhaps the most important--OL.

The biggest difference between 'Bama and Clemson through the last 20 years--and I know 'Bama had some down times in that stretch--is their third team would have competed for pt in Clemson. We've had a solid set of starters most years, but had a real lack of quality depth. When you can go three deep with quality it's hard to beat you.

One of the biggest reasons for the late-season collapse last year was the loss of Phillip Price. I hope BT is a whole lot better at LT this year, because there was a big drop-off when he came in for PP. I'm concerned about the OL. We need a bunch of hosses to build depth there.

But we're seeing it everywhere else now. We're deep on D at every position. We're deep at all the skill on O.

GOTTA FOCUS ON THE OL.

i'm in full agreement.
but still excited about Robert N.
and isn't all the sweeter to watch the coots gnashing of teeth...


RN is a huge part of that depth now. With Goodman

finishing his career this season, we need quality at DE. We sure got it! The DL is in great shape for years to come. at LB we're deep. The secondary is deep.

the only real issue with our depth is OL. Absolutely have to notch it up in OL recruiting.

won so much was that his third stringers would start for any other team in the nation. Maybe this latter day Bryant will build a program like that.

Yeah. That was before the Bear Bryant Rule, limiting teams to 85 schollies. He was notorious for putting kids on scholly just to keep them off the opponents' rosters.
