Last year’s rankings had Georgia first and Clemson second. This year, that order is reversed. Both teams look similarly built on that side of the ball: loaded and deep front seven, with some questions in the secondary. (Of course, that’s somewhat relative, as both programs have recruited well.) With regard to the latter, will the transfer portal have an impact for either before August?
For all the talk about quarterbacks and offense taking over the sport, are we giving the prospect of two very good defenses facing off in the season opener enough weight? Is it realistic to think that the first team to thirty wins?
