Clemson’s offense is in good shape.  Defense will certainly be where all eyes will be at Clemson.

Chase Brice needs to get a lot of reps and sunshine needs to be on the sidelines with a clipboard and baseball hat

I agree. The defensive front will be the focus. I would still like to see a few of the new guys on the OL and would love to see a TE step up.

No injuries. I would like to see someone step up as the new elite pass rusher, but I’m afraid the OL is going to make several people look like all Americans. James Blackman better be protected with bubble wrap.

We will be very thin at TE as well, that and how the Dline steps up IMO.

DL
LB speed
Punting
Backup QB.  Chase and the Freshman.
New slot usage.  Likely Rodgers here who is far more physical than Hunter. 
Freshmen. 

We are thin at TE but haven’t used them heavily lately.

Brand new everything. There is a ton of buzz around the UNC program now. They had a decent recruiting season, and are right now rated 9th nationally. They are installing the Air Raid system. The defense will be like nothing I’ve ever seen. DC Jay Bateman has a “positionless” defensive system based on a 3-4 structure.

That’s a good start. That defense sounds interesting. I’ll look forward to watching that to see how it plays out.

I’m also pretty interested to see what GT does.  I wonder how long it will take me to see them running a different system.

Guess UNC fans aren’t as excited as they say about Mack Brown?

it wasn’t full, but about 5 -6 K were there. I was among them. Yes, fans are excited, but after a couple of suck seasons, and a cloudy, rainy coolish day some folks stayed home, for sure. UNC will not be world beaters this coming season, but will be way better than they’ve been being. Also, one side of stadium was fuller than the other. That photo has made it’s rounds from Darren Rovell (sp). He can choke and die for all I care. I think if it were a sunnier, warmer day the crowd would have been about 10 k or so. I spoke with several who didn’t go due to weather. I actually might try and make a game or two this season. Mack Brown’s enthusiasm is infectious. I’l add, if it were a sunny, warmer day I may have played gold instead of going to a spring scrimmage. I don’t think it is a measure of support.

DEFENSE. I’d like to see the Hokies stop somebody this season!
Also interesting in how fast the OL progresses.
Feeling good about QB and WR.
Oh, and… can we get a kicker?

I agree on what needs to improve for VT, but it’s really strange to hear VT concerned about defense after so many years of outstanding defense.

As Iconic of a DC as Bud Foster is, I have to wonder if he has lost his mojo.  He never really seemed to consistently Adapt to the HUNK offense with teams that have good talent.  He’s been there a really long time and I wonder if he didn’t stay too long.
