    Since 2005 the starter list was 8,9,8,7,9,10,8,6,5,4,3,3,5 to 5 or 6 last year according to Vanilla Sky. Another member MIA. This year looks like roughly 5 or 6 again but mostly OL.

    HC Bimbo Fisher is an annoying caste twit and this team is a caste operation down the line.



    Back ups include QBs Connor Blumrick and Zach Calzada and on the OL Kellen Diesch and Luke Matthews. Odd team. Have white back ups at caste positions but all of them are buried behind the two deep which probably means at best you'll see a couple on special teams. They have three white CBs but they are buried. Also around five white WRs but again not on the two deep. These include Hunter Smith and Reese Mason who are bubbling just beneath the two deep.

    However keep your eye out for rangy red shirt freshman WR Caleb Chapman # 81 who Vanilla Sky noted in his write up last season.

    But when you have a team without any white defensive starters and probably none on the two deep that just does not cut it in my book. Can't abide by teams who follow that path.

    Offense:

    OT-Carson Green
    OG- Colton Prater
    OC-Ryan McCollum
    OG-Jared Hocker
    TE-Baylor Cupp ( talented freshman)

    Unfortunately Baylor Cupp broke his ankle yesterday and is likely to miss the season and redshirt.

    Wow, this team looks to be pretty unwatchable. But then again that is to be expected from a SEC team. Not to be a nitpicker, but it should be Texas A&M, not @.

    Funny FootballDad you should mention that & and not @. Ha. I was debating which one to use originally. I changed it.

    Too bad about the Cupp injury. Unless WR Chapman somehow rises in the ranks this will be a bottom of the barrel team here at CF. Bloody horrible. Right up there with the worst offenders.

    Texas A&M released their depth chart for the season and although OL Colton Prater is listed as a backup, they have a couple guys on the 2 deep that were some surprises. WR Caleb Chapman made the list as a #2 outside receiver as a redshirt freshman, we could be seeing a SEC receiver who isn’t a slot sooner than later. DE Max Wright and LB (12th man) Braden White also made it but they are listed as OR which could mean they might not be the clear cut #2 option. Interestingly they have 3 other QB’s listed as OR with Kellen Mond, are they all that bad or are they all that good?? Like Texas they are a laughing stock that likes to hoard 5 star guys... when are they going to learn that isn’t the solution to having a winning team unless you’re Alabama or Clemson?

    It has been rightfully ben mentioned here at CF that on the surface this looks to be a down year in college football with the usual caste heavy lineups clogging up the drain.
    .
    But we still have to wait for at least a few games to get the best feel on that matter. There will be some athletic white QBs front and center. And the landscape is still littered with some white defensive stars.

    For my favorite position wide receiver things are hanging in the balance. It looks like a very down year for white wide outs and the upcoming NFL draft could see zero white WRs drafted.

    However there are some talented, mostly young, white wide receivers waiting in the wings. Many are either on the two deep or just below it. One of the things I will be closely monitoring is how many if any of these white wide receivers start to surface and make some noise.

    We just don't know the answer to that question. Where it stands now it will take some doing and some roster leapfrogging but only time will tell on that score.

    Rangy and highly touted redshirt freshman WR Caleb Chapman mentioned above by Red raider as being on the two deep is the type of player I have in mind with this "lurking just below the surface" type of white receivers on rosters. Receivers like Chapman could suddenly emerge and make this college season a hell of a lot more interesting.

    That is why I can't fully give in to the negativity. I want to let the season breath a little before I make a determination as to whether the year will be a totally downer experience or not.
