If going 6-2 is lackluster, then the SEC is lackluster. That is on top of 8-2 last year. That said, I am souring on Mullen until he learns to be a boss (firing Grantham) and owning up to his mistakes (you always prepare and try to win).
I agree that Lawrence is essentially the same level as he was as a frosh. I still believe he is a generational talent as maybe is Fields. I go by high school recruiting rankings a lot as more than you think 5 stars make it to the league. The holding the ball observation is astute and I will look for this going forward.
I repeat that I believe the best two players that I saw were DeVonta Smith (who the Heisman voters may agree) and Kyle Pitts. Any team that does not draft either, other than the two QBs, is making a mistake.
