Default Re: Home winning streak.

Can't add much but want to point out that our coach loves firsts.

We have a first ever match-up with Texas A&M.

Coach Spurrier always brings something extra for these games

Default Home winning streak.

away. Another week from now we as fans will start getting into "Game
Mode" realizing it is only days away now instead of weeks. ..... BUT EVERY
YEAR, 10-14 days from kickoff is that area where we're wanting it to get
here, and realize it's still just beyond our "comfort zone". We start thinking
all kinds of things and "what ifs" and "are we ready" kind of ideas pop in
our heads. Most of it comes from what we see or hear in the media. Mainly
we hear them reporting on all these other team's improvements and about
all our opponent's standout players and their top recruit's making a big
splash for them in practice. A lot of times those reports are accompanied
by video highlights of those players making good plays in practice or their
spring game. We get edgy thinking about having to play them, and we
start thinking ....Hmmm, maybe these guys aren't going to be the pushovers
we pictured them being three, four five weeks or so ago. That's because
the media weren't preparing for the start of the season and having to
cover all these teams back then. NOW, two weeks or less before the
start of the season and we have time to see those reports and start
wondering and worrying.
I came to realize this a few years ago, and it has curbed my "two week
dead zone" worries. ... These are simply highlights of our opponents
team and certain players. They have to pick those out to show the best
of each team while they are reporting on the improvement of them the
year before. They are hand picked plays out of MANY. Every team has
them in their practice and last year's footage. MAINLY....While we are
watching and sometimes worrying about the improvements of our opponents,
Our opponent's fans are watching and worrying about our clips and highlights
of our improvements and our big play guys (Pharoh, Dylan, Shaq, Mike,
Brandon etc...) and practice footage of our new guys (like Samuel, Harris,
Lammons, BA Williams etc...) They are worrying about us right now, while
we are worrying about them right now.

ALL that matters is when we strap on the helmet and go hit somebody
when it all starts a week from Thursday.

You're exactly right Spurt, exactly right. I am nervous but I think what worries me the most is us having a mindset that we are unbeatable at home. That kind of overconfident mentality can screw us. I guess it's a gift and a curse. A nice gift but one that needs a warning label.

By US, I assume you mean US, the fans. As long as the players don't have this mindset, we are okay.

In my opinion, the players will not be overconfident, depending on US too much. I think our coaches have a feel for this sort of thing.

Is that your home or the Dolphins? With all that gangsta $ the U has access to, seems that they could build a stadium for all of their fans. Say one that seats about 30K. That way you might be able to fill it for once.

We play 1 game at a time. Let the streak continue and when it does come to an end, teams will still fear coming to WB!

Default Re: Home winning streak.

I think when you have a streak like we have it motivates our players. It gives them a MOJO and a mindset. Like Spurt is said, all great things come to an end. just like the SEC with the national title streak. We will lose at home again. But you take the streak and the hype and run with it. We are not the type of team to slack off because we have a number next to our schools name of how many games we have won.

All things come to an end just like having never lost a home post season baseball game in the Tanner or the consecutive NCAA win streak in baseball all came to an end, all the players need to do is take one game at the time.

Kinda wish our fans would quit crying, the season starts in less than 2 weeks. Go do something productive.

Default Re: Home winning streak.

I'm just excited to get the season going again but if you look at our schedule we have a good chance of going undefeated at home all of this season as well. We have
ATM...which will be a challenge for both sides of the ball with it being the first game of the year and still getting the rust off of the players and allowing them to hit other people.
East Carolina...running the hurry up triple option stuff always scares me but we have done really well with it as of lately so they don't worry me AS much.
Georgia...always a huge game for both sides, the rivalry with them is continually growing so fun game
Mizzou...playing Maty Mauk vs DT again but I think DT will be more comfortable with it being at home and we will keep the governors cup in the better Columbia
Furman...well, it's furman. Don't see this being much of a game.
Tennessee...the guys are pissed from last year and are looking for revenge. Tenn lost a lot of big time players but kept some of their receiving core.
South Alabama...see furman...
