    I said in the "bold predictions" thread that Shavers will break out as a star among the others. You call really tell he's sculpted his body in the last two years and that 6'6" size has got to be good for something!!!

    And Metchie doesn't look like a true freshman either and those hands!!!

    Think he came within about 60-70 yards from 4000

    I'm super excited about LSU's WR group, they remind me of where Bama was last year. We have 2 5* sophomores healthy and ready to explode.

    I don't know your roster like you do, but I know what a roster looks like with uber-talented receivers without a QB who can get them the ball. Take a look at the Alabama offense in 2017 before Tua rescued us and that's what it looks like.

    Is Joe Burrow ready to show he's the real deal? IDK, but I also know he's probably not in the same zip code as Tua. Sounds like a Bama homer statement, but really, who is?

    I completely agree. This is without question the Best/Most talented collective group of WR's we have ever had.....Add to that the Best QB we have ever had and you HAVE to take advantage of their Offensive skills.

    We also need to run the ball like everyone wants...... but it's not that we need to run more by volume of snaps.... we have to be able to get the 'Tough Yards' when needed and that's what's been missing for a few years.

    As long as health allows (which no one can predict) I think Tua EASILY passes 4k this season.

    He was 52nd Nationally in Attempts last year yet finished 5th in Passing Yards.

    Give him 100 more Attempts or 6-7 more throws per game and passes 5K. I know that sounds crazy..... but that's just how Phenominal Tua is passing the ball.

    Agree totally. This WR corp is quite possibly the best corp in college football history.

    I think with our OL this year this year's offense will be more prolific than this past year's offense. I think the OL will protect better and they will definitely be more physical on the run.

    If you take depth into account you'd be hard pressed to find a better WR group in the history of college football. Especially recent history.

    LSU had Landry and OBJ which is the best tandem I can remember. But they didn't go 6 deep at WR like we apparently do.


    Heck, not sure there has been a better position group in the history of college football from a depth perspective. Closest think I can think of is last years Clemson DL.
