Good lord - take a deep breath. The kid hasn't played one single second of college ball yet. I've seen too many "can't miss" prospects who do, indeed, miss.

too much whining.

Take a deep breath.
We're replacing outstanding QB, RB, and WRs. Our D was only ok last year (below average at DT, and we're replacing both of those).
We may have a great OL, but defenses will stack the box and make us throw.
Plus, we have a lot of tough games:

No. Chollie Mac was here a long time and had some decent years, but no way he's our greatest coach.
In 18 years as head coach:
- had a conference record of 60-41-3
- won the SEC once
- lost 2 or more conference games in 14 of 18 years (and this was with only a 6-game SEC schedule)
