Default 2014 Expectations

A thread off another board got me wanting to know your thoughts. So, what are you expectations for the 2014 football team?

Playoffs?
Bowl?
Division Champs?
SEC Champs?

10-2 and Capital One Bowl would be disappointing. Nothing against C1B; it's a great bowl, but at this point its a "been there, done that" thing.

I'd say we should aim for a SEC East title and a playoff bowl. If it's not the Sugar or Rose semis then one of the others that don't host

Anything less than an at large bid is a disappointment.

Default Re: 2014 Expectations

With a mediocre pass protecting offensive line and a nonmobile QB that doesn't have a ton of game snaps, lack of depth and no pass rushers at DE, and inexperience at Corner I'd take another 10 win season in a heartbeat.

I think 8-4, 9-3 would be a good season. Just don't have the personnel on defense and I'm not quite convinced that the offensive line is going to allow Spurrier to let it fly like he wants. Also have some doubts with Dylan.

I think we get 10 after a bowl game win.

9-3 if all goes well. Which may be good enough to win the East. Don't think we'll see a 10 win team in the East this year.

I see 10 games we should win. Missouri is my toss up, but Auburn would be getting greedy.

My 2014 expectation: Get to Atlanta.

Georgia will probably be a tougher home game than Missouri. I don't see us beating Auburn on the road. And Florida is always tough. I still think we have what it takes to go 11-1. But it feels like I'm one of the few who think that

Default Re: 2014 Expectations

9-3 is probably the most realistic. That being said I think all 3 of those losses are in SEC play which would put us in a crap bowl and we will ALL be pretty pissed off about that.

As for some optimism, which quite a few people here seem to be lacking or just not expressing, if Dylan returns to the guy we saw 2 years ago and the O-line doesn't make him move around a lot then I think people will have to keep up with us on the scoreboard in games. Assuming those things I mentioned work out then we should easily average 35+ points a game. Don't forget we have a consistent kicker. So if those things do line up that would mean our inexperienced D could give up 4 TD's a game and we would still be in good position to win all our games.

The hidden key for me this season is a couple things.
1. We don't play back to back road games this year.

2. Our first 2 games. Lots of people on here want to write of A&M as an easy win. Sumlin will not sit his starters for an SEC game even if they should due to off the field stuff. His offenses at Houston were record breaking and they were without a mobile QB (Keenum threw for 5,000+ yards 3 times under Sumlin). Their D is more experienced and won't be as bad as last year. And UGA, well simply put, UGA always plays us tough.

If we walk out of those 2 games 2-0, then I see no reason why we won't be competing, again, to go to the SECCG.

My official opinion after saying all that is 10-2.

Pretty high expectations for a team that's probably going to struggle mightily on defense.

I worry that Dylan may have a few missouri moments this year. if so, then we will not equal the last 3 years.

Although another 10-2 is par for the course, with all of the changes on the DLine especially DE, 10-2 is a realistic expectation.
