I'm not going into extreme details because it wouldn't make a difference but
1. The defense took a step back last year and lost numerous players off that team including this being the most turnover and least experience at DLINE since Saban arrived, not only are we inexperienced with the 4 that normally rotate in we are inexperienced with the 4 that will be starting.
2. The secondary was torched every time they were tested last year, this isn't the strong point you think it is and it certainly isn't as strong as the past few years
3. LB's, won't change much
4. The offensive has to be assumed it will be the same until it isn't the same. Les has proven over his 8 years that the offense won't change much. Only 1 of those 8 years has the offense been comparable to other strong offenses around the country. 2005 and 2006 had potential but eventually Les will rear his head and lose a game 7-3.
5. We lost a record amount of Juniors, not Drake Nevis, Peterson, and Sheppard like everyone likes to compare too.............a record amount. Losing 11 guys is not losing 3 guys.
