Thanks for posting all this, RiR.

I'm actually really encouraged after listening to Steele's interview. He's not over the top intense, like Muschamp; he's more, I guess, seasoned and confident. I really like his emphasis on a couple of things: attitude/effort over scheme, and team over individual.

He also kind of lights up when he talks about specific players, though. Seems to like Prince Tega.

Good stuff.

That second video with Devaroe Lawrence is awesome. I really like where it seems like the guys' heads are -- ready to be coached, ready to play hard, ready to improve.

Sounds like Pettway's pretty excited to be getting some reps at RB. Good report from him on Landon Rice, and his eyes light up when asked about JFIII.

RIR does a far better job keeping us up to date than many of those sites that charge $$$ for up to date and accurate information. Never any complaints from the Doc for sure!

Our DL COULD be one of the biggest surprises in the SEC, if not the country this year--while we're optimistic, Garrett and Jonathan Allen, are getting all the attention.

I feel like we say this every year. Gotta be optimistic like you said.

Yes but you have to feel better the way Dontavious Russel stepped up and having Byron another year. it appears we may finally have some depth at D-line and that is they key.

Not to mention a healthy Lawson and this incoming class that perhaps was the top DL class in the country

Love all of the info. But what counts are results on the field starting with wins and losses. The DL, based on talent, should be amazing. Let's hope the coaching matches the talent. The LB core is weak, let's hope the coaching can overcome that. The secondary has had one good year of coaching in Gus' tenure as HC. Hope McGriff can continue or build on that. I hope our new DC can at least maintain what the last DC started building.

On O, Gus needs to take over the O. Gus has proven to be a very good OC. We need that to return in a huge way.
