Yeah, it should be, so let's talk about how Carolina is replacing as many starters on the O-line as we are. It's pretty funny that you keep trying to talk about our O-line when your own is a question mark. As is your receiving corps, where you don't even know who your #1 is yet. Also, you do not have better "backs." You have ONE better RB, and nobody knows whether he's 100% or not, or if he'll stay that way. Dude didn't participate in Spring practice at all. And let's not even get started on the glaring question mark in your defensive secondary where you lost everyone but Swearinger on top of losing Ellis Johnson. Yeah, you guys are just the epitome of answered questions, aren't you?
Now put your crack pipe down.
hmmm...lets see we have three returning starters on the oline with cann, johnson, and matulis, and another who gained a lot of valuable game experience last season, which brings me to the fifth member of the oline which just happens to be some guy named brandon shell, who brings with him pedigree, a valuable redshirt year, and size and speed to go along with the fact that in camp he has matched wits with one of the best defensive ends in the nation (some random guy named clowney), and im not even talking about how highly recruited he was. now comparing that to georgia who lost 4 starters on the oline, i dont see how you can say we lost as much as you. i always knew that some of you dog fans had trouble with math...

Would Georgia pissing their pants and going 8-4 even be a big surprise?
not in the slightest!

Please, you know full well that without Marcus Lattimore your RB group is just average at best. Remove him from the mix and I'll take Malcome, Samuel, Harton (that's 3 guys w/exp), Marshall and Gurley over that bunch any day. Spurs doesn't have Latti running the ball 35 times a game because that's such a talented group behind him. But no sense in arguing over that. Ace Sanders is what, 5'8"? That makes him shorter than every corner on our team. Good luck with that.
My point is that you have questions marks... just as many as Georgia does if not more (especially considering the losses to your secondary and your DC). So it's awfully silly for any gamecock fan (although in y'alls defense, mr. gamecockfan isn't exactly in the reasonable part of the sepctrum) to be saying "How are y'all going to pass the ball if your quarterback is on his back??? Hurr hurr derp. You don't have an OL! Connor Shaw is going to torch you!" That's just ridiculous.
hmm...dont remember saying that! i guess some of you dog fans have trouble reading as well...

I've never heard of Harton. I've seen Malcome and Samuel (who has switched from O to D to O more times than Isiah Crowell has pistol whipped someone) and they're not bad. However....I'd still take Wilds, Miles, and Carson over those 3. Carson played I think 2 snaps last year before he got injured, and he was our #2 guy. Of course Lattimore is our star, but he's not going to be run like he was in the past. They're planning to run by committee because of our depth at RB.
Ace Sanders, Bruce Ellington, and Damiere Byrd are all short guys and I agree with you that your CBs are taller. I just wish our head coach had some experience with short guys to help utilize that.....
Oh wait...that's right! We have Steve Spurrier. The man who destroyed a TON of teams with that exact same format while at Florida and made a name for himself and made UGA fans hate him forever. If you think your 6" tall CB will be able to run with Damiere Byrd or Ace Sanders then that's fine. A few inches won't make a difference when they're 5' beyond your safety.
i second that!
