I believe other receivers will rise. However we need our best players healthy all season and Shipley may well be among our best if not our best.

"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
My only worry about playing certain backs who do certain things well is that it would seem that we will telegraph plays when certain backs are in the game. Ideally we are able to have backs become very good at multiple aspects so we can disguise what's coming and I'm sure the coaches are miles ahead of me on this area. Just my 2 cents.

Disagree that having a healthy Shipley isn't a key to our success. He's lite years ahead of any of our other receivers. He needs to stay healthy, we're just not that good a receiver goung into the season.
