    LOL Check out number 7. When did Mizzou change their colors and move to the ACC? :Rolf::Rolf::Rolf:

    Toss out the Michigan game (132 total yds) and we'd be in 12th place not 25th at the end of 2018. We're not going to see anyone in 2019 hold Nebraska to 132 total yds assuming AM stays healthy imo.

    So I can see Nebraska jumping into the top 10 offenses for sure...........

    The loss of Devine and Stanley temper my expectations. Though, the returning O will have a better grasp of the playbook, so it may be a wash.

    I think people are underestimating the loss of these two, especially Devine.

    I actually think the opposite - We have 3-4 guys that can come in and be the next great RB. Devine was a beast but easier to replace.

    Not sold on replacing Morgan's clutch catching with our WR group yet. In this offense we need a guy that can get us some tough yards but most of the plays are to get a fast guy open in space. W. Robinson and M. Washington will do that very well I think. How our OL develops will be the key to how consistent our attack will be.

    We'll see on RB. I loved watching M Washington run and I think Robinson could be a stud. Devine was seriously amazing at times. You could count on him getting you the needed yards and blocking well enough in the passing game.

    Need to factor in Mills assuming he's ready to go? He could greatly help make up for the loss of Ziggy imo...

    That's recent transfer to Mizzou, Kelly Bryant from Clemson. They show Justin Fields (transfer from Georgia) for Ohio State entry too.

    I really hope it is plug and play, but I'm always cautious about juco kids coming in and making an instant impact. I don't think the fans gave Ozigbo enough credit for how good he really was prior to this past season.

    Defense will play a key roll here. Hard to rack up a lot of yards when the defense is on the field as much as they are.

    Not saying it's plug and play as almost any player is going to have to work into the system. What I'm suggesting IF he's as advertised he looks to be a heck of a RB. Before getting hurt he was good enough to gain almost 800 yds as a TRUE freshman at GaTech. That suggests to me he's probably the real deal. That was in an offense that was run, run and more run. Put him in SF's multi pronged offense and who knows? He also has a HUGE advantage of having 2 years college ball at 2 levels.......

    I'm just hoping that everything is squared away with his personal problems. If so I believe he could be a big shot in the arm for our 2019 offense.

    I don't see why not.

    Losing Morgan and Ziggy hurts and will impact production, but this team has talent. Having said that, a top 10 offense may not lead to more than 7 or 8 wins without improvement elsewhere.

    #4 as well. Georgia (or UMass) as Ohio State. Kind of hard to take this article (and to a certain extent, this website) seriously when they make TWO blatant errors like this.

    Here's what you need to consider when it comes to the BIG. The conference had eactly 1 offense (OSU) ranked in the Top 10 and 1 in the Top 25 (Nebraska). Suggests to me the conference isn't exactly loaded with dynamic offenses which probably means our D just needs to be serviceable. Sort of middle of the pack and we can win 9 or 10 games. Perhaps even more with our really tough games at home.

    I agree that our D needs improvement but I firmly believe that's going to happen for 2019....
