Next Season = the season of reckoning It's gonna be tough sledding for some teams in the Tradition next season. all of the original players are completely gone, and therefore your recruiting ability is going to literally start to dictate how well games turn out unless there is some overwhelming difference in gaming ability which is rare in our league. I don't have the time to go team by team, but as an example I'll look at my biggest rival, Georgia Tech. let's look at his team next year. QB: Luallen is gone. He hasn't signed a quarterback yet, and I don't think there are any true stud starting quality QBs left anywhere to be found. So let's see.... Jeremy Cooke or Andy Jones? Jones has the speed but you dont' want this guy to get hit because he has a shit carry rating, and he has no accuracy. I'm guessing its Cooke, who might be immobile but I guarantee Ga Tech can throw for 5,000 yards with this guy since they won't have a running game. Still he'll be a sitting duck back there with absolutely no escapability and a running game we'll examine next. HB/FB: At least they signed a FB this season, we'll see if he's any good but the real issue is the backs. He is desperately trying to take advantage of the Miami situation by coming up with Richard Smith, a very solid back. They already have a Richard Smith but I think this guy's better. Orwin Smith and Garrett are gone, so whatever happens, production will likely decrease bigtime. It's gonna be all about the passing game. Look for both passing yards, but also interceptions and sacks, to increase significantly. WR/TE: They lose a couple of guys. Stephen Hill being hurt all year is something that I'm surprised they overcame, at least up till this point. He'll be gone for good, but overall this unit really will be slightly improved. OL: Young and reasonably talented. They should be improved next year, quite a bit in fact. DL: Emmanuel Dieke is a huge loss, but Marcus Gunn will step right in. But NOBODY is going to be able to replace JC lanier. Brooks is strong, but too slow to be a true impact guy. LB: The outside backers should be o.k., they're young and have decent talent here. The middle is where it looks fucking UGLY. Brandon Watts is gonna be gone. Freshmen Jonathan Webb would need to improve at least 5 points to be considered even a reasonably good starter. None of the OLB look like they'll be a force in the middle if they were moved. Does he have anybody up his sleeve in this class? We'll see. CB: All the best guys are back. S: FS Will never be an issue for them, they just take a big fast guy and he wins the thorpe. No issue. SS will also be alright. Overall outlook: They appear to be headed toward being completely one dimensional on offense, and weak against the run on defense. thank God he's the best passer in T1.
