There's almost a guilty feel that comes with this preview. You should get it for free. We shouldn't charge you for it.


The names are the same as last year, for the most part, the starters are the same and the outcome … well, that does remain to be seen, and business is, of course, business.

Graham Harrell is still the quarterback, still poised to set numerous passing and total offense records, still connecting with a talented group of receivers. Most of the other offensive starters are the same -- 10 return. The faces on defense are familiar too, and they even come with the same promise -- we'll be better this year. Count on it. No, really.
