QB talent can make up for a lot of that discrepancy, but I find it hard to believe that UNC has a talent advantage anywhere other than behind center. Maybe at WR. If Chubb is even a half-Chubb, this game shouldn’t be too close.
Think a lot of that talent came in last class.
Uh, see Auburn at #7. If talent were the issue they would not have had last seasons results.
Only surprises for me on the list are Miami at #18 and Washington at #26? Wouldn’t have thought either would be nearly that high.
More shocking is that Florida is at #16 on that list and has only 25 blue-chippers. Georgia, by comparison, has 45.
I’m telling you, Florida is going to tank soon, especially if UGA can step up a little.
Georgia can make FU tank by beating the Gators regularly.
The genius is nailing those three stars.
It is always a coup.
If talent were everything we wouldn’t have a new coaching staff. I’m excited to see what the new coaches can do but out of the gate UNC isn’t a walk in the park. Hopefully we can pull it out though.
So, you’re predicting a win, right Senator? Otherwise you wouldn’t have posted this….you’re trolling us, aren’t you?
Now we’ll all see if Kirby has IT.
Call me crazy but these rankings don’t seem legit. Our cupboard is far from bare, but 6th in the nation? Regardless, our current issue is not total talent, but the distribution of it. RB and secondary are great but I’m worried about the D line. Either way tomorrow I don’t think anyone’s getting blown out, but I hope we come away with the W.
+1. All those RBs can’t play/carry the ball simultaneously, so a lot of stars aren’t on the field all the time.
There is, I note, a considerable distance, talent-wise between Tennessee and Appalachian State, despite Brent’s drooling.
