    Here is how I see the rest of our schedule playing out. Are we going to be bowl eligible at the end of the season? Losing that Marshall game may come back to bite us.
    Kentucky, Missouri, Ole Miss, Florida....I dont see us losing all 4. We win 1 of the first 3 then 50/50 Florida. My guess is Missouri since its at home and we’ve had Drew Lock pretty much contained the last 2 years.

    Sorry, just don't see how you can use the transitive property from one game and apply it to 9 more games. A freak play on a pick 6 and a shank punt has you tied with #2 georgia at halftime 10-10, but we played like crap for a quarter, and now all of a sudden we might not be bowl eligible. Thats the most negative, knee jerk reaction ever.

    Nope, we probably won't win out, and no we probably will not look good at times, but you will definitely have times were you play good and things will go well and we will definitely win some games.

    I've said it before, I'm glad that our players and coaches do not have the same attitude as a lot of our fans do. Strap it up, play better next week, and if we get out maned then it is what it is. Georgia out maned us, and the only other team left on the schedule that can do that is Clemson, so I'm excited to see if we can improve and win some more games. Only played 2 games.

    WINNING

    As easy as playing a Big 10 Team.

    There is zero chance for us not to win 6 games. Muschamp has a problem with replacing our Marshall game. It creates 10 straight games with no break.

Not to say we couldn’t lose to either or Mizzou but I wouldn’t chalk them up as losses from what we’ve seen so far.

    I don't think it's an overreaction. We played a pretty good first half, other than the first 2 minutes. What should be concerning is how the team came out flat after the half, in a game they we're still in at the time, and completely gave up not long afterwards. I'm still concerned by McClendon as offensive coordinator, and by the fact that Bentley is in his third year and hasn't progressed.

    Check out Clemson 2013 results. Looks familiar to this.

    A good team that got destroyed at home by FSU (eventual natl champs) and lost by two TDs in Columbia that year. Actually last time we beat em.

    Dont let one bad loss define your season. UGA is an elite team. We are absolutely heading in the right direction. Stay positive guys.

    Agree...I have thought since Muschamp arrival that the rise of SC was similar to the rise of Dabo's Tigers...We lose to Clemson this year but the tables turn next year.

    This could very well be true. In some ways, I think the fact that we have overachieved in Champ's first 2 years has been somewhat of a negative. Nobody on the planet predicted us to go to a bowl in his first season. Nobody. Last year, nobody predicted us going to a bowl as good as the Outback bowl or winning 9 games. When you go from 3 wins to 6 wins to 9 wins expectations naturally follow. Now, we are expected to win at least 9 games (or more) or folks will say we are regressing, which may not be true at all.

    Bruh if we have 200 yards of offense in one half against any of those teams, except Clemson, we likely have a 2-3 score lead.

    You guys get enamoured with how good teams are instead if how bad. You really think UF is that good? They're shit. Did you even watch them play Kentucky? Kentucky couldn't even throw and won easy.

    Drew Lock University puts up stats against bums and gets thrashed in the SEC been that way for 3 years.

    Kentucky is tough for us and could be a toss up.

    Vandy is going to get their shit drug this weekend and be dead next week.

    Ole Miss looked unbeatable week 1 then average week 2. Verdict is still out.

    Tennessee is a joke

    I don't see a for sure loss in any of these games. I don't see for sure wins. But how could be not win 8 games?

    Partially agree here although I don't believe winning should perceived as a negative, ever. But to your argument, people will find any reason to complain about our situation. Win a national title and they'll say "well, we could have done it better but we suck."

    Lol if we ever won the title I guarantee no one would say that. We’ve been a terrible team since our inception. With the amount of money that goes into the SEC expectations should be high in every sport. We don’t pay Champ 4 mill to lose 7 games.

    I sure am glad our coaching staff hasn't flushed the season down the toilet like some of our fans.

    I don't expect this team to struggle to get to a bowl game, even if the Marshall game isn't made up. Clemson is an almost definite loss, and there are some SEC tossups (UK, A&M, Ole Miss). Florida will be tough too, but definitely beatable. Win at least 2 of those, and it's a fine season.

    And even if we go, say 8-3 or 7-4, bowl committees would view that really as a 9-3 or 8-4. It wouldn't change our bowl stance. Even with the recent events on and off the field, this is a Gator or Citrus Bowl team like (most) people predicted this offseason. The hurricane or the UGA game don't change that.

    Winning is never a bad thing. It's easy to get ahead of yourself when you do better than expected.

    But you're not gonna increase by 3 wins every single year. At some point it catches up to you. As long as this team wins at least 8 games, then it's a success - especially this early in the rebuilding phase. You just aren't going to win 10+ games given the previous circumstances. Can't be okay with 8 game every single year, but you have to factor in the circumstances.

    Go back to threads during weeks 3 and 4 last year. After the loss to UK and close call with La. Tech, there were threads prophesying that we’d finish 3-9 and discussing Muschamp being in over his head.

    It’s never as good or bad as it seems.

    The NA in NAGamec0ckFan stands for "Not A" - as in NotAGamec0ckFan. His schtick is to pretend to be a fan and get the other posters fired up and squabbling.

    What is unknown - after two weeks of playing mostly warm-up games against weak competition - is how good teams are.

    Is TAMU really good, or is Clemson not as good this year? Did UK win in Gainesville because they have a Top 25 team, or is Florida just going through the first year struggles that come with a coaching change? Ole Miss can score in bunches - like Mizzou - but will they still score a lot when they play better defenses, and can they stop anybody?

    We play four SEC teams with first year coaches - that is usually a recipe for struggling. We will get some answers tomorrow.
