The biggest plus is not having any of those sh*tty a$$ coaches returning from last year, with the exception of Sieder whose running backs were the only guys on the team last year that looked like they practiced.

At WR we have one, Cleveland, that can really play. Otherwise we are starting from scratch.
I like our returning RBs, especially Davis who raises the others’ game. Hope he recovers fully.
OL - this group needs to really respond to the new S&C guy and Hevesy. There is size and talent but it’s got to improve. This group REALLY reminds me of 2004 - we kept expecting the OL to mature and they kept being substandard.
TE - starting from scratch. But I remember when Faulkner & Mularkey were unknown sophomores so good that Wilber had to find PT at LB.
QB - starting from scratch and I’ll be happy to see any of them emerge and any of the others leave to find a place that fits. Can’t blame Franks too much but he’s starting all over.
DT - good size & depth.
DE - depends on who can handle the new scheme. Too early to know how this shakes out.
LB - I like Reese and expect him to be better with experience. But it’s too early to know exactly who will be where at LB and who will respond to the new scheme and coaches. I think there is talent there.
CB - I really like Wilson & Henderson. I like Chauncey at CB or Nickel.
S - I’d call Taylor a starter and like him.

@PeterBurnsESPN: If CFB teams were stocks and I had a build a solid portfolio for growth, these would be my top 5 investments:
1) Florida (Incredible value)
2) Nebraska (Huge upside)
3) Alabama (Safe but expensive)
4) Penn State (Undervalued)
5) A&M (Volatile but might spike)
I like having the whole Oline back, just hope this coaching staff can help them reach their full potential. If we had a QB we could be really improved, but we that could’ve been said for the past several years. I really like the RB’s that we have and the one coming in. Hopefully Davis can get back to his top form by early to mid season. We could really have a lethal run game this year with improvement in the Oline.
Call me negative or whatever and this is not a shot at Cousin Eddie. Quite the contrary. But does it really matter how many starters you have returning if the majority of them stink out loud or are not good football players? Look at the offensive line last year. Lots of returners, awful play!
