Win the East. No excuses this year. Once we get to the SEC Championship all bets are off.

Win SEC for me. We've been good enough to make it the last 3 years. I don't want to end the season saying "at least we were good enough to make it"

SEC Championship.

A completely healthy Mike Davis for an entire season...

Ditto for Brandon Wilds...

If both of the above happen, we can run the table, boys. Those two guys are vastly underrated (especially Wilds).

Dominant run blocking against our toughest opponents. If we finally get the size holes that we should be creating for the running game, we will start posting 50 points on teams instead of 30+ points.

Possibly a National Championship if Dylan can get his accuracy percentage up where it belongs. His last practices have indicated that we should expect quite an improvement in this area.

We have to move beyond an 11-2 season. We have done that for 3 years now.

Beat Clemson. Win a Bowl Game.

People can pound their chests all they want in this thread about SEC or bust. As long as we win our last two games of the year, every single one of you will be pretty well satisfied and you know it.

Success = Win SEC

It's time to use that as a measure of success.

It is hard not to have a good taste in your mouth when you end out the season with multiple wins in a row. But you have to admit in retrospect we blew it the last two seasons by not getting to atlanta.

This is an excellent idea for a thread. Definitely winning the SEC is a successful season this year, anything else will be fun but will fall short of the success I feel this team can achieve

I haven't seen SOS with the swagger and confidence that he is showing now since his Uf days. I honestly feel like he thinks this team has something very special. I think anything less than winning the SEC and making it to the inaugural playoff is below our goals for this year!

Agree. Complacency is the first sign of regression.

11-2 consistently is nice, but you have to take the next step and this year has to be the year.

Senior QB, one of the best OLs we have ever had, a top flight RB, and solid corp of WRs and TEs...and it sounds like the D will be okay...this year is our best shot, because next year looks like it might be a rebuilding year on offense with a new QB, new RB and likely new WRs, TEs and a new Oline (lose Robinson, Shell and Cann).

Gotta win the East. We arguably could have been in Atlanta for the past three years straight. As successful as we've been otherwise, I'm pretty tired of beating up on the division and then sitting at home because we fell asleep during a game we absolutely should not have lost.

We need to get to Atlanta again, and win it this time.

That would be my definition of a successful season this year.

i agree with the poster who said win the last two games, with one being a bowl game. that either means winning clemson (at clemson) and the bowl game, or winning the sec and a bowl game, or even outside chance playoff game and championship game. last three seasons show that's a perfectly fine way to end a season in this state.
