Brenton Cox, who was apart of UGA's #1 class in 2018, left the program this past weekend. Cox, who is an OLB/SDE, was the #23 ranked player overall in the country. As a true freshman last year he played in almost every game.

He is now officially a Florida Gator. He is the highest ranked player on their team and the only 5*. He was the 15th ranked player on UGA's team.

Rumor is he never really wanted to be at UGA, Fields was a big reason he was there, and he fought teammates and threatened coaches. Talented player who will make an impact but PITA and hardheaded. Late for meetings, no-show at class, etc. His attitude could certainly improve at another school. Either way it is a huge get for Florida, especially if he can play this year.

Will Trevor Lawrence live up to the hype or will he have a Sophomore Slump?

Pretty sure you could put any qb in this offense this year and they'd be a heismam candidate

I tho I think the offense could've scored 2 TD's without him, but maybe. That offense even with Brice was a million times better than the KB and deon Cain shit show the year before

You don't think that game was won without sunshine though, correct?

Definitely want to see how he handles adversity... He hasn't tasted a loss yet, but Alabama wants blood for that massacre T Law handed them in the BCS NC...

Unfortunately I believe they take it. "All them" I don't buy. Jimbo has history with Dabo and that history is close games.

 

Edit - You said at Clemson and I got it wrong. You're right in the end. That home field advantage is a huge factor just like it was last year for us. Sorry I misspoke.

The way the defense played I definitely think it could've been, it's hard to say a team that only game up 16 points, and scored 7 alone on defense couldn't have won without him, especially considering they have the #2 rated RB in the country

 

it definitely would've been a lot closer though and probably would've lost

I just don't see it being close like last year, Trevor Lawrence played 2 drives and had no experience, and justyn Ross played 1 snap  last year

The offense should be even more dangerous, more cohesive, etc...

But the D lost so many stars and hopefully the secondary plays like it did in the playoffs and not like it did against SC and A&M.

The front 4 won't be as good as last year, how could it losing three 1st rounders, but it won't be as bad as people think. They have a few guys that were top 10 overall coming out of high school and they have a lot of gameday experience

I'm going to say 10 like I did last year but I won't be shocked to see it stay close. Our team this year is more talented overall than last and I think yalls defense will take a step back. It's the second game of the year. If it was deep in the season I wouldn't be as optimistic. Gotta put pressure on sunshine. That will be very difficult.

Yeah the narrative that people seem to be sticking to is that the d line won't be good, everywhere I can find still has it rated as a top 10 in the country, I'm most worried about the linebackers I think that will be the weak spot on the team this year. The D line will be elite

My point is that in week 2 that defense will still be jelling. I would call Clemson's defense last year elite and look what A&M was able to do. Maybe on paper this is an elite defense but they haven't proven that yet.

And btw Kaep I know I could be way off. I've got 500 reasons not to doubt Clemson but I do like getting you guys early in the season.

Can't wait. Both teams will obviously be better in their own regard. Several NFL caliber players on both teams in the trenches, and our secondary has a few nfl prospects as well (something we have struggled with until Jimbo helped recruit).
