Way to go out on a limb there, Herbstreit.

Now that the empty suit Herbstreit lives in Nashville, he has transferred his love to the Vols. He’s another analyst who makes my ear bleed.
I love the fact that we’re flying under the radar at this point in the preseason.
Yep..and LSU is under the radar in the west. Leonard Fournette may very well be the greatest running back since Hershel…and we saw what a running back of that caliber can do for a team. And if Georgia can have just a few things go right, we might see a Chubb/Fournette extravaganza in Atlanta.
I agree, it is certainly possible but neither are a lock in their own division.
My question is, what will Bama do now that they lost their 30 carry a game back? Replacing a play maker is never easy, but to replace a player that literally touched the ball on 50%+ of your snaps is even harder. They have some decent RBs, but I think Riley is going to make or break them this year.
Of course on the flip side, LSU has a beast at RB, but once again not much depth behind him nor a QB who can make teams pay for stacking the box.
Ridley, not Riley*
Very close between LSU and Bama again this year. Alabama always seems more about their defense than their offense anyway, if they get the OL to perform, they will always put up enough points, I think they can replace “the Heisman” runner (who wasn’t even the best runner in the West) and agree Ridley may be the key to open up the running game. As for LSU, when have they had a different making QB under Miles? They are always about power running and great receivers on offense. The difference in who prevails in the West will likely come down to the backup players (depth and injuries).
I predict big ernge implodes…
I hope you are right
I’m wid ya.
Flying under the radar works until you’re detected.
