It sure is looking that way. Would be nice to bring home the hardware.

And Auburn showed their hand this year by running a variation of the same play 90% of the time. We should be ready to defend against the one and only play they know.

Edit: I guess they know 3 plays if you count the hail mary pass and field goal return.

we'll have to see....im a little nervous about the schedule due to the fact that we gotta have some players step up at key positions

Winning the East is going to fall on one guys shoulders. Dylan Thompson. I like him but we are just going to have to see what he can do in a full schedule situation.

very true, we've seen him make great plays and then there's the not so great plays...if he can get a little more consistent, he has both the talent and the drive to win

I still think TAMU is going to be a tough first game even without Johnny and Evans.

Yeah, since Alabama, UGA, and Mizzou couldn't stop that one play, I'm sure SC can.

Overall the 2014 schedule is harder than the 2013 schedule.....Auburn and A&M are harder than Miss St and Arky.

My point is we know exactly what they're going to do every play. Kind of like when Florida would put Tebow in the game when Chris Leak was starting. If we can't stop them when we know 100% of their playcalling tactics, we don't deserve to win.

How the team comes out and plays against A&M will tell us a lot about how the season will at least start. They will have a ton of talent, young talent at the skill positions especially. If the team comes out and keeps A&M from running what they want (tempo wise, scheme wise) then I believe we will have a very good chance.

By the time we get to Auburn on the schedule both teams will play completely different from week 1 so there's almost no need to look at Auburn already except for big picture viewing.

I just hope we have some leaders stepping up and getting everyone to work their butt off this off-season and not be complacent.

It's the SEC man, you never know what can happen because of the talent level.

Re: Have to think schedule favors USC to win the East
 
Best thing about this team going forward is how well they battled and played in the 4th. Or maybe it's how young they are and still got those valuable reps. No back-to-back road games either. Those guys should win 12 this year, if not more. If they don't, I'll still be a huge Cock fan..... <--lol

Still mad about losing Arkansas on our schedule. I wish we would've fought to keep that alive, they are going to stink for a good 5 years. Every other school b*tches and moans and the SEC gives way.

Also, the last time we played Auburn they were at the top of a downslide, which seems to have lasted until the year before they play us again. No other team in the conference seems to have as high of an upswing when we are supposed to play them than Auburn.

Kind of funny haw Mizzou is a tough game for us, considering no one would have listed them this time last year. So..potential tough games include Texas A&M, Auburn, Florida, UT, UGA, Mizzou and tater U (non SEC)

Opening up with aTm is no cakewalk game

Well no, but they aren't who they have been.

:wink:Not sure why we should be overly concerned with A&M. Their D sucked monkey balls all this year and I have absolutely no idea who the back-up to Johnny is or who they will have as a WR. They have as many questions to answer as anyone else. I am sure that they have talent in waiting but I really think we should take care of business with what we have coming back.

Re: Have to think schedule favors USC to win the East
 
As opposed to us who lost Clowney, Vic, Connor and Bruce.

I imagine they are saying the same thing.

It's not the number of plays you run/know, but the execution of plays.
