And if any of y'all correctly predict the season I'll be expecting mega million and powerball #s from you as well. Carolina has a game every year where they lay an egg. Hopefully we got it out of our systems early this year. I'll hold my judgement off until after this next game.

Right... and how many eastern division games have we lost so far?

I am keeping the faith and I'll trust the visor.

But I want Wilds to start and get the bulk of the carries, even if Mike Davis isn't "hurt". I've said this for a while now, Davis should be the change up to hit holes when Wilds has worn them down like Latti used to.

I'm not sold on the whole Wilds #1 back. Mike has been "hurting" (and I put it in quotations bc we can only take his word for it) and HBC rewarded wilds with the start due to him being at every practice, not performance. I wouldn't have mattered if we had 1980 George Rogers back there last night due to the fact we had 0 chance of establishing run game. The HBC will get these fellas fired up. Hell, if he can't just show them the video of A&M celebrating to Sandstorm. That'll fire somebody up.

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

I think it's wayyyy to early after what we saw to even predict the rest of the season if we find an identity in the next couple weeks or even this week we might only lose 2-3 more games this year. However I'll play along because I want to know how I feel also.

Texas A&M Already killed our D
East Carolina Win by 10 or less
Georgia Loss by 17 or less
@ Vanderbilt win by 14+
Missouri Loss by 10 or less
@Kentucky win by 10
Furman Win by 17+
@Auburn Lose but I think it's close
Tennessee Win by 3-7 points that is the average and they have some talent
@Florida Lose by 10+
South Alabama Win by 14+
@Clemson Win by 10

So it looks like at present I think we will be 7-5 this year ;(

This is my best guess right now but it is too early we should do week by week predictions when the week comes up like most of the talking heads this is too vast and includes too many variables.

Our number 1 until Mike is healthy should be Brandon Wilds our #2 Should be David Williams but they should both get equal carries imho especially against ECU. Don't forget Mr Wids is injury prone. Also Pharoh should be returning kicks I don't care how he looked his freshman year in the SEC. As well as Sasser is he injured or something?

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

Good news: It is still too early to predict the rest of the season. We have played just one game so far.

Bad news: In the game that we did play, there was absolutely nothing positive that we can say about the defense. Our success in the SEC in the past has been because of a formidable D.

I know Vandy lost franklin but did anyone else know they also are trying out the 3-4 and got torched 37-7 the other night I don't think the 3-4 is what people thought it would be.

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

The 3-4 defense is stupid for just about any team not named Alabama. We suck at it and should kill it, bury it, and never consider it again. Might start moonlight practicing too, cause we probably wasted a lot of time practicing it pre-season. Might explain why no one got hurt pre-season as well. Probably never tackled anyone using that defense.

Default Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

It's hard to know how bad we are or how good TAMU is. I'm going to say right now that TAMU is much better than previously believed because...they have a QB who can throw with confidence.

I think 7-5 is pretty possible...9-3 at best with losses to Auburn and either Florida/Mizzo/Clemson.

Still really hard to say.

1. Do we find an identity on defense and get back to basics?

2. Is DT really a decent QB outside of his Clemson performance in 2012? His mechanics seemed really off (feet shuffling, never settled) and off target (high/short/rushed) with his throws big time. Seemed like it was his first start ever and nerves were evident.

3. Can we establish a running game to help out #1 and #2 by staying on the field and allowing the playbook to open up?

Not a lot to feel positive about after Game 1, but there are a lot of questions that can be answered still...

If the Defense gets better, 8-4.. If the defense still looks like it did thursday...1-11.. Call me a negative Nancy or whatever you want, but if any of you think's that the defense that showed up Thursday has a shot at winning ANY game this year, you are only fooling yourself..

We'll win more than one game. Going 1-11 means we lose to three of South Alabama, Furman, Kentucky, and Vanderbilt. As far as 8-4, that was my season prediction before the season started, and even that was if we got lucky.

I don't understand why Spurrier wouldn't put in another QB in the fourth when the game was over? Anyone think we'll see a Mitch or Orth sighting at ECU?

I'm as pessimistic after Thursday as anyone. That was ugly. That said, the 2010 Kentucky game has nothing to do with this year. You're right about Vandy-those games always seem to raise the blood pressure a little bit, but there's still no reason we should lose to those guys.

But hey, my prediction of 8-4 is looking smarter and smarter after last night, so I'll give you that.

It's the first game. Anything can happen in college football. Yes that was a shitty defense. But you should never base the season on the first game. TAM is history- let's put it behind us and focus on ECU
