Actual football talk: Your question mark this season?
What position or group (or coach) is the biggest unknown this year and what is your best guess for how it will go.

For A&M, it’s a toss-up between OL and QB. I don’t see either completely cratering, but I see more upside potential with QB. JFF ruined us for hopeful expectations of what a first-year QB can do, and it just seems to take longer for an OL to gel.

Saving grace is that Bama has a similar situation.

I think mostly everything at LSU is a question mark this year.

Sidewalk is right..

I think the only thing we have that isn't a question mark is kicker

Secondary

My prediction is that we don’t have any issues here. Kirby is great at developing DBs and did what was needed to bring in some experience to help early on.

Literally everything from the coaching staff to players.

My wish is that Tennessee will not turn into Texas Tech, but I know it's the grim reality.

57 yarder in the fog, on the road, to beat #6 as a true sophomore?

We have two new coordinators that have never been coordinators before.

We have two capable QBs, I don't know which one will start.

I literally have no idea what to expect from LSU this year.

Wha?

Maybe linebacker.

OL is set

WRs set with the best WR class coming in to supplement

TE is set with Bech moving there to help

QB is a competition between two good starters

DL is the deepest and most talented under O

LB has tons of talent but no set starters

CB is the best room since 2011

S seems to be set (thanks Georgia) and also has tons of talent

We’re loaded without many questions.

I’d say QB but KJ has looked really good in the games he’s played, plus he’s a true mobile QB and fits well in Briles’ system.

Outside of that I’d say WR past Burks. Losing Woods hurt.

Also depth on defense. Hurt us last year

This is false. Daronte Jones has been. Recommended by Aranda and worked under a very good defensive coach at the Vikings

And Peetz has been at Alabama and in the NFL and yk was recommended by the guy that designed the 2019 offense.

You are drinking deep from the August Kool-Aid.

Good boy. Hope springs eternal for all of us.

Neither coordinator has any experience at this level, not necessarily bad, just not sure what to expect.

Two quarterbacks who played good last year but we don't even know who the starter will be.

A lot of talent at running back but it's been inconsistent.

Boutte is a beast but a lot of unknowns at receiver.

The offensive line was bad last year and a new OL coach was hired late, not sure what to expect.

The defensive line will be good.

Stingley should be back healthy hopefully, Ricks will be good, not sure about the rest of the secondary.

2021 LSU has the talent to win a national championship, they could also go 7-5. Wouldn't be drastically surprised either way.

I mean if you say so. Bookmark my posts if you want.

10-2 is the floor. 2021 LSU is a CFP and national title contender.

re: Actual football talk: Your question mark this season?
We have so many questions, I am not sure where to start.

I think the biggest question is if the OL improves or not. We have a great running back, but I am not sure he can last a season with all the contact he gets (esp before getting to the line).

Also, will Bo Nix improve, stagnate or regress?

How well will the o adapt to what is expected to be more complex offense?

Some of these questions will be answered at PSU, but October 2nd is when the rubber really hits the road.

What is your honest assessment of Eaux’s ability to coach up his coordinators?

All trolling aside, this is my biggest question mark with him. Can recruit and his passion is infectious, but his track record (without inheriting a pat hand) is not well-established, good or bad.
