There is an almost universal consensus on this here blog that 2018 is "the year" due to almost the entire two-deep returning. We will return battle tested youngsters & will be loaded with depth across the board. 2018 will be the exact opposite of 2017, where instead of Mike McCray being the lone returner on Defense, he'll be the ONLY starter who won't be back. Perhaps not "CFP title or bust" but 2018 is definitely the year. Right?
I, too, feel this way. HOWEVER, why can't 2017 be the year? We know that there are four games on the schedule this year that matter (caveat about not taking teams lightly & the like). We just SHELLACKED the first of the four. Not smart to assume that because we handled PSU & Wisconsin with ease last year that 2017 will be the same - but I'm not convinced either of those teams can outplay us for 60 minutes, even on the road. OSU will be a revenge game at home
I've been bullish about 2018 being the year but after watching the Florida rout, I'm convinced 2017 is shaping up to be a special year. Any other glass half full peeps who feel this way?
