From a CSU guy nobody knows but it's a great storyline


I can't wait to see how this thing plays out. Former Georgia Offensive Coordinator vs Georgia Defensive Coordinator. Mike Bobo against Tyson Summers(Former CSU Defensive coordinator)
There is a lot of SEC/Southern football influence and your guy is a Georgia guy, I guarantee Bobo is taking this one personal. He's also healthy, and hungry to redeem last years shit show.

Where the rams improved :

Speed & Strength - New S&C coach making waves and the team will be much faster, stronger. It's been a night & day difference from to the previous coach to the new one. This will probably be the greatest factor, maybe more than Bobo's health.

Transfers:
- We have a great looking DE in Jaylen Bates who transferred from ASU and will start.
-Tron Folsom is a grad transer from Troy who is fast/physical and was their leading tackler & all-sun belt selection as Soph/Jr.
-Nate Greg-Myers is a former 4* WR from Auburn who may miss the first 3 games due to transfer rules.

Health:
- This is Collin Hills first full spring/summer/fall camp since he was a freshman. I think people are keeping the lid on this guy and he may carve people up this year. He is one of the most talanted QB's we've ever had and knows the playbook inside-out.
- Toby McBride is back and healthy. He brings a physical, blue-collar mentality to the defensive line

Defense:
Young & fast. The secondary is much improved and finally has depth. We have 3 very good athletes at linebacker that are all sophomores and all can run. The defensive line finally has a legitimate 2 deep and 8 guys that can play.

Our offensive line is a HUGE question mark and Bobo really did a hack job of recruiting that position in his first few years. We have very limited development and if someone goes down we are in big trouble. The starting 5 could be serviceable, but we can't afford to lose anyone.

On paper, there is more depth and potential than CSU has had in a long time. The record shows Bobo has not been able to do much with the talent he has. It's his last shot and 7/8 wins are probably the ceiling for this team, with 4-5 wins not surprising anyone.

CSU Rams - tons of talent, but a coach who has been very underwhelming and had what was described as a toxic locker room by former players in year 4 of his tenure. Some of those guys are no longer with the program, but has enough been done to change the culture in Fort Collins? Nobody knows.
