    No injuries to key people.
    Coaches all on the same page.
    AND...
    The press keeping on pushing Clemson as #1. That should have our players playing with a chip on their shoulders.
    AND... Our players believing they can play 60 minute ball and dominate everyone.

    I hope Clemson stays at #1 all season until the end. Our guys need a huge chip on their shoulder.

    Team stays healthy
    Better linebacker play
    Better coaching
    Better FG kicking
    A dose of good luck

    All those things were already stated but all are true.

    I agree that "the chip on our shoulder" is maybe the biggest key. There's a reason we haven't won two in a row but once under CNS.

    I think it was definitely missing last year.

    AND, speaking of injuries, sure we need some injury luck but we are one of just a handful of teams that can overcome injuries with our deep roster.

    Outside of a season injury to Tua, I think we can still win the NC. Just not too many injuries.

    1. Luck with injuries (especially Tua)
    2. An improved defense
    3. A coaching staff that stays in place and totally engaged through the NC game.

    Unfortunately, I do not think the group of assistants CNS has assembled for this year are looking at a long term career at UA. I would bet many have already bought their tickets to the coaching carousel and will be first in line to board when it opens for business.

    Obviously health plays a factor as we have seen repeatedly. But to me we need to get back to being able to run on people even when they are dedicated to stopping us from doing it. If we can do that I see no way to stop or even slow down this offense. Absent that we will only go until we hit a defense that can get to Tua because as good as he is, he's not great at dealing with pressure.

    Yes, and I would like to see more leadership on both sides of the ball than what we saw last year.

    1. Better coaching (than last year) from the assistants/OC/DC
    2. No injuries to key players (especially Tua, and Jalen Waddle and linebackers)
    3. Team leadership and humility
    4. Luck
    5. Beating Clemson in the Playoffs

    Iíve been concerned about the coaching turnover the last few years. While I know CNS is the CEO...it is disruptive for the players to see so many different faces each year. If there is an advantage Dabo has over us....that would be it.

    I wish I could disagree. I can’t.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    in reverse order...
    3. Tua Stays healthy
    2. Defense, Defense, Defense...we could not stop UGA, OU and Clempson...
    1. Praying that Trevor Lawrence sprains an ankle before we play them...if he's healthy and has continued to mature as a player...this could be a problem
