We should win, and they might have a lot suspended, but they have very good offensive players, and our DL and corners (especially) will be jittery. Not a good combo. It WILL be closer than you think.

If we don't score 40+, I'm selling the remainder of my season tickets.

Just kidding. But I expect it to be over 9 by kickoff..

Typing the word kickoff makes me ache for football season.

Davis will be running behind one of the better offensive lines in the SEC. The Gamecocks return four starters, and senior guard A.J. Cann said blocking for a guy like Davis makes their jobs easier.

“That first hit, he’s not coming down,” Cann said. “Unless you clip him by his ankles, he might fall. But if you go at him up high, I don’t think he’s coming down. He runs angry, and he runs mean.”

“That’s how I want to run on every carry.”
Lol. Whatta loser.

A&M is tough team and loaded at skill positions. They have some inexperience at QB, but they will be fine. We have lots of talent in the secondary, but also a lot of inexperience, but I think we should win.

My big concerns are the lack of experience on our DL and with our corners. And that Dylan has been inconsistent in the past. He goes out and beats Clemson, but will look bad in another game. I fully believe that he will be at his best this year, but that he will still have 12 or so interceptions.

In regards to Mike Davis running angry... I think that you will see a lot of time being split between Davis, Wilds, Carson and Williams. I think that Williams has the most pure talent of the bunch.

But I digress, 9 points is a lot. Especially for a first game. I see a 31 to 24 kind of game. The crowd needs to be a factor.

That'll mean the money's rolling in on the Aggies.

USC should have run UNC off the field last season but seemed to pull up on the gas pedal.

Covering means a double digit win, a pretty tall order vs a quality opponent.

By the same token, if the birds do cover, the clemmers will be painting A&M as the little sisters as the poor and win or lose, UGA will be freaking giants.

Do people forget that we finally got in a groove against UNC right when the rain hit? We had them finally tired only to have a rain delay so they could come back with a 2nd wind to make the game interesting instead of the slaughter it should have been.

Most coaching staffs have learned how to taper off practices toward the end of fall camp. Otherwise you have a bunch of fatigued players entering the season.

By the same token, if you slack off too much, you lose an edge.

If you can't find that balance, unless you're playing a patsy, week one can be pretty unpredictable.

Duke scored 48 points and had almost 700 yards of offense on them the last time they hit the field. I am not at all surprised by this line with it being at Williams Brice.

SC's offense will be much improved from last year, we'll be able to score at will on these clowns. However, we're going to grind clock to limit the snaps for their HUNH offense.

Mike Davis is mad, bro, he's running angry this season.

Spurrier > Sumlin
Ward > Whoever the POS DC they have.

Crowd noise at SC during an ESPN night game...huge advantage to us.

aTm has no video of how we run a 3-4 defense, so what exactly are they going to teach their true Fr QB about it?
I like your enthusiasm, but I'm not sure what the heck you're basing that statement on, unless it's a flat out diss of Connor Shaw. We also lost Bruce Ellington. I'll be thrilled if our offense is as good as last season's, and I hope it can be, but to state that it "will be much improved" is strange. We had a damn good offense last season, including the best quarterback play we've EVER had and the most total offensive yardage in school history. Clearly, you're in the Shaw was overrated and Thompson will make us better camp. Hell, I hope you're right. If so, we'll win the national title.

I think we'll be fine a DT. DE is what worries me. That's the reason whammy is going to run the 3-4 a good bit to be able to put pressure on the QB using LB. There's a new LB position in the 3-4 called "The Bob" and BAW fits that position perfectly.

Default Re: Spread vs. aTm

I am not surprised at the line being what it is, but I don't think we are going to be this push over that some of you think. Yes the home field advantage will be nice with the noise, but let's be honest, it isn't like any SEC team doesn't have to play with noise being a factor. We are kinda all used to it. Regarding our Offense, I think there are going to be some shocked people out there when they see our offense doesn't drop off that much. Yes we are losing JFF and Evans, but we are still loaded at talent on that side of the ball. Sumlin is known for doing well even with Mediocre talent (UH).
Let's take a look at the offense as a whole. We are returning 4 of the 5 starters on the line and will have another 1st round draft pick at Left Tackle there next year too. Our running backs are one of the best stables in the nation with Tra Carson, Trey Williams, and Brandon Williams (all of which would start at most schools in the nation)
At WR we are flat out LOADED. Remember the name Ricky Seals-Jones (he is bigger and faster than Evans) he was hurt all of last year, but the dude is special and I don't mean like that Franks and Beans guy from Something about Mary. Also Speedy Noil and LaQuvionte Gonzales present nightmare match-ups (yes we have a Speedy/Gonzales package)
With a new QB albeit the number one overall QB from last year our offense will have a different look using the backs more and more of a standard quick pass attack, it will not be something you will have film on either.
Defense will still be very young, but we have picked up a good bit more depth and for those that watched that Duke game and thought that was normal, watch the second half. They only scored 10 points
My prediction is still a high scoring game, but I would not take USC at -9

Sorry for the long post, but there was a lot that needed to be said there with me just getting into this 2 pages late.

The more I think about it, the more I think we will cover this spread. They are young at some key spots and I think that will hurt them. It really isn't ideal for a QB to make his first start on the road on a Thursday night in the SEC.

If we can get a couple of stops early and slow down the offense I think we may win it going away. Say what you want about Vegas, but they know what they are talking about more often than not.

I think it'll be a 34-24 type of game. They will have success on offense at times just because of their talent and scheme. I think we need to put up at least 30 to feel safe in this one.

A&M is LOADED at the skill positions. Much more talented than we are there especially at WR.
Their Defense will be better.
Add in the fact that we usually always under perform in the 1st game and I'll be happy just to get a W in this one something like 31-28
