    Can't link it but there's a story on espn college football page that Kobe Boyce is stepping away from the team to concentrate on his mental health. Says he's battled depression for many years. Wise decision and I wish him all the best.

    In two years as a underclassmen he has combined rushing and receiving 2689 yards and 14 TDs. And he's rushed for 6.0 yards/carry despite very little support from the rest of his offense. His best games in terms of rushing yards:

    2018 Oklahoma (252 yards, 16.8 ypc, 2 TD)
    2019 Texas (190 yards, 7.6 ypc, 2 TD)
    2018 Rutgers (163 yards, 8.6 ypc, 1 TD)
    2019 Iowa State (154 yards, 8.1 ypc, 0 TD)
    2019 Oklahoma (137 yards, 6.0 ypc, 0 TD)
    2018 Ctrl Michigan (125 yards, 8.9 ypc, 2 TD)

    If anything, Oklahoma put him on the map, although we helped as well (his 9th best game was also against us).

    Offense should be better - better OC, QB, RB, OL depth, TE. Defense should be way better (less DB injuries, better DC and use of DL). Only reason we are not #1 is because of Herman.

    I would submit there are three reasons we aren't #1

    1) Tom Herman

    2) Linc Riley

    2-A) Tom Herman

    3) Mike Gundy

    3-A) Tom Herman

    I still say we end up above OSU...and think we win the RRR.

    The RRR is the one everyone wants to win, but the CCG is the must game to win.

    Juwan seems to suggest he gave less than full effort last season
    But you can count on him this year

    Just call the opposing team racist based on something from the 1880’s and we’re good.

    This will be the most powerful new recruiting tool.

    SEC recruiting is a little ironic in this regard

    I take it Juwan is a communication major with a minor in English?

    LOL - 350 is apparently the limit for DT.

    Presumably Joshua Moore is lighter now since he is no longer packing.

    Imagine this offensive set.

    QB Sam Ehlinger
    RB Bijan Robinson
    WR Malcolm Epps
    WR Brennan Eagles
    Slot Jordan Whittington
    Slot Jake Smith

    That is actually enough firepower to rival Clemson, Bama, and Ohio State. I think only Epps wasn't a top 100 recruit of that group.

    Or just our running back room
    Bijan: 222
    Rojo 227
    Ingram 222
    Young 215
    Decent OL play and we are off and running
    Is that too much to ask for?

    Or to summarize:

    Riley: Shown the ability to take over an elite program, compete consistently at an elite level and go the the CFP

    Gundy: Shown the abilty to win consistently at a back water program, coming within an eyelash of a BCS title game with inferior talent.

    Herman: Shown the ability to sucker smart people out of $20M in four years, while being unable to lead a 4 car funeral.

    But the starting OL dropped weight
    By design? Or due to "other factors?"
    Cosmi: 6-7/309
    Angilau: 6-6/294
    Kerstetter: 6-5/293
    Okafor: 6-4/317
    Jones: 6-6/310

    It certainly is..
    .. IF you have a tier 1 offensive line.
