How do they continuously rank Georgia ahead of us every single year, and pick them to win the east. They went 8-5 last year for crying out loud. We saw what happens when their star QB goes down, their entire team buckles under pressure.

Probably because Scott-Wesley, Mitchell, and Bennett all return along with Gurley and Marshall. Georgia just needs Mason to be a game manager and get the ball to those guys. Offensive Line is a question mark but I don't think USC has the guns to take advantage of that this year. Florida and Auburn probably will though.

I think we have a chance to beat UGA at home. However, they are going to be explosive on offense. Maybe not as explosive on offense as last year, but still explosive.

Except Mizzou won last year.

Lindy's has us at #9 as well, but winning the east.

Until we learn to take advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself
I don't disagree with us being number 2 in the East in pre season rankings.

Want the respect ?....... T.C.B. against UT, Georgia, LSU, UF, UK ect.... when they're
beatable, and you're the better program going into the game.

The team will have an opportunity to T.C.B. against all of those, insert aubbie in place of less u. (may even get to take care of Miles' kitties in ATL) all in a single season this year!! Just be sure to T.C.B. with aTm to start the season!!

That's pretty accurate. Talk about our division rivals all you want, but they win the games they have to in order to get to Atlanta. We don't. That has to change in order to get respect.

Word. Pretty good considering what we lost to graduation, the NFL, and bad choices.

How I see it playing out:

1. South Carolina
2. Georgia/Missouri
3. Georgia/Missouri
4. Florida
5. Tennessee
6. Vanderbilt
7. Kentucky

Seems about right. Works for me.

We finished the 2013 season at #4, and we have lost starting QB, best DE to ever play here and the #1 overall pick in the draft (along with two other DL starters who may also play on Sundays), our most productive and reliable WR and all of our CBs who have meaningful game experience.

I see being ranked at #9 in the country and #2 in the SEC-E as a sign of respect and indicative of the belief by the national media that we're finally capable of reloading rather than rebuilding every time we lose top talent. If we actually win the division a couple of times, folks'll start believing we belong there as well.

Hate to say it but it's true. They will pick UGA over us to win the east until we prove them wrong.

I know it's 2014 but we proved them wrong in 2010.

Well at least we're no longer predicted to finish fourth in the East anymore.
