Default How do you feel with camp almost complete?

How do you feel about the season with camp almost done. They finish on Tuesday.

Cautiously optimistic. We have lots of talent but not much experience. If the goal was to win the ACC I would feel great but winning the Natty tales another level (or two). If we can weather Cuse and aTm we will be in good shape

Some dents and dings, but nothing too crazy. Hopefully DK can get back to 100%. I think him being healthy will allow Jones and Booth to develop a little better.

It'll be fun to watch this defense grow up. This is probably the best back 7 we have had under Swinney. I think we'll play some odd man fronts at times this year, lots of blitzing. Not a ton of concerns.

I think the offense is good enough to do what they want, but we'll need to bring along a RB for depth.

15-0.

Injuries reported on so far appear to be minor so thatís good. Unfortunately the Coaches comments at this point validate the team is young and making too many mistakes at positions they need depth. This yearís team will probably show a great amount of improvement from game 1 thru game 4. Hopefully they get thru that stretch undefeated.

Relieved that we haven't had a major injury yet, but nervous about the defense shaping up. We got a tough early slate and we need all hands on deck. Hopefully the offense can carry us through while the defense catches on.

This team reminds me more of the 2015 season in terms of lack of depth. The difference is this team is more talented. The depth issues are experience related, not talent. The 2015 team did not have much depth from an experience and talent standpoint.

Hard to believe camp is almost over and the defending champs return to Death Valley in just 11 days!

For me this team feels like 2017. The difference is that the potential deficit is the DLine instead of the QB and Oline preventing the team from being elite.

I like this conparison. NFL talent all over the D but the guys playing behind starters have zero experience.

An explosive O that we know will score. It also represented the Sophomore year of both of our generational QBs.

Hopefully Coach V will get these kids playing well in a hurry.
