Just another indictment on how nationally irrelevant we have become.

Actually, it doesn't. As everyone understands, we'll have to earn our way back. 

While we do, I won't be rushing to see what the AP has us ranked. The poll is what is irrelevant, assessing based upon nothing but speculation.

When mid-year hits, then that poll becomes more interesting because we learn that too many of those picks on this year's teams were based largely on last year's teams.

The poll is only worth the fodder it creates right now.

Notes . . . 

– Tempo was good. The ball was 'alive."

– Texans scout at practice today

– Argye Hall back on team "when time is right."

– Hates losing Angilau, but is confident in Hutson, Roberson and Parr as back up centers. (This confirms to me that Hutson was awarded the G spot and thus moved Angilau to backup center).

– Two players who could play any spot on the offense – J Whitt and Worthy.

– QBs played fine but missed opportunities. Looks forward to film review with them.

– Fumbles were fixable things.

– Team ran 100 plays in 100 degree weather and ran gassers afterward.

– Consistency is big for Savion Red and Brennan Thompson.

All notes are from TFB.

This is significant.  Sounds like Hutson beat out a 3 year starter at G.  Now I'm excited for Hutson.  Maybe losing Angilau won't be that bad.  Yeah, it sucks for depth, but it sounds like they did not lose a starting OL.

Encouraging news on Rojo and Alfred Collins.  Still sucks losing Neyor, but I think they can and will fill that void.  Sounds like the door is open for Omiere and Hall to step up and walk right through.  Just need Hall to get straight and have the opportunity. 

I still picture a talent rich offense come mid-season with Ewers, Worthy, Bijan, Sanders, Whittington, Hall, Banks and Campbell.....hmm, six 5* and two near 5* talent (8 out of 11).

They were consistent, or they need to be more consistent?

 

When I read that I had the same question. 

Since they are both freshman,  I'm guessing the latter,and that is mostly expected for freshman in the middle of August.

A few more practice notes from OB

- Defense was very active. Had three interceptions and the offense also put the ball on the ground four times with fumbles. Said the line of scrimmage was very physical.
- No separation with the quarterbacks coming out of the scrimmage. He described the race for the starting spot as being very close.
- Despite the injuries on Saturday, Sark said the team psyche is great. They had one of their most energized practices on Monday.

IMO if it was close, he would have already named Ewers starter after the scrimmage. From a video I saw, it appears Ewers has more big plays, and more int's.

My guess is Card starts the 1st 2, the Ewers comes in when the coast is clear.

Hard to imagine him doing that to Card again.

According to what I've read today, Card has an accuracy issue. His arm strength is about the same as it was last year. 

Ewers is more of a gunslinger but his accuracy and arm strength is far better than Card. Ewers will probably start, but we'll have to live with an INT or two with each game.
