Not to knock Magnus, but McEvoy and Zeke Pike, mainly pike agree with me when it comes to nky qbs. Let me put it to you this way. When schools like barkers come across the river they get destroyed. He maybe good, but I see him as a bust.

And Eric you are kidding about mason and Thompson right? Thompson beat clem5on at clem5on.

last time UGA won the east you finished third in the division. that was hardly letting them back into it when you clearly had more problems somewhere else.

they were also winning east and conference titles long before you became a contender in the division, so I'm not real sure that you should title your team as the "gate keeper" for the division.

I expect that from an LSU fan but not a Bulldawg. Talk to me when your relevant.

You saw what happened when both Florida and Wisconsin became one dimensional against us with the run. You're not going to be able to win like that, especially in Columbia with a starting safety sitting out.

Yes, your defense was young, but it did not get better during the season as it should've. With a new DC and system to learn, you better hope something good happens in the offseason. If you're giving up chunks of yards and points, you won't be able to score if teams know you can't throw the ball and can stack the box.

6-2 will win the East in a tiebreaker, and having UGA and Mizzou at home gives us a huge advantage.

can you explain how something non relevant scored 41 points on a day where relevance only scored 30?


anyway, I can see the east going a few different ways depending on who recovers better from losing some key players, injuries, or improvment in general.

If I recall correctly, they did very well with the run against you.

They did, but they lost, which the goal of every game is scoring the most points, not putting up big stats. And in both cased halftime adjustments were made the bottled up the running games pretty much.

9-3 may win the division next year. If anybody goes 10-2 it's theirs.

They did initially, until we realized they both were not going to throw the football. I think FL had something like 25 rushing yards in the entire 2nd half. And when Wisconsin showed no threat of throwing, we stacked the box and ended up making a few plays which won the game, including stuffing them on short yardage on 3rd and 4th down to get the ball back.

Point is that the ground game worked for them when there was a threat of throwing, but as soon as that threat was removed and they became one-dimensional, we adjusted, loaded the box, and stopped the run game. The original poster said (which I commented on) that all Mason had to do was hand the ball off, which if that is the case we have shown we can stop the run if that is all you plan to do.

I don't think Green-Beckham will be on the team for Mizzou for a good while. Losing Franklin and the other defensive guys I think it will not go well for them.

UGA will have a much improved defense, hopefully their new QB and early suspensions will be too much to overcome.

Florida, to be honest it wouldn't surprise me if they did much better than expected for some strange reason.

Tennessee I hope does well enough to get Butch Jones attention from other programs. Michigan and Nebraska will both be open, and Jones is from Michigan. I have a feeling if he does well and shows he can rebuild Tennessee they will get him. That's my hope anyway.

1. USC 10-2 (6-2)
2. UGA 9-3 (5-3)
3. Florida 9-3 (5-3)
4. Tennessee 8-4 (5-3)
5. Vandy 7-5 (4-4)
6. Missouri 6-6 ( 4-4)
7. UK 3-9 (1-7)

Who knows what his status will be.

UGA returns their entire defense basically and Gurley and Marshall and all their receivers.

I think USC and UGA are the clear 1 and 2 players this year.
I agree here. Mizzou loses way more than UGA. UGA has all of their Playmakers back except Murray and their D will be ten times better this season.

It will be a USC/UGA battle
