5-3 with 3 toss ups

Nah, I think weíre just not overreacting to a bad game against a top 3 team and see that if the team improves we can still have a very good season.

I know our defense has been suspect, but I really believe it'll get better as we go. Offense should be better as well, but I want to see a run game.

Here is how I see the rest of our schedule playing out. Are we going to be bowl eligible at the end of the season? Losing that Marshall game may come back to bite us.

I think we will beat Mizzo here. But probably lose to Florida. They will be better by that time. The games where we might surprise people will be UK and Ole Miss. But both are away games so it will take some luck.

Quite an indictment to say beating UK would be surprising some people.

I mean, if you're going to look at UGA--last season they lost to Auburn 40-17 and then a few weeks later were a play away from a national title.

The solution I see: on offense, take the decision making away from Bentley. Pass or run. 1-2-3 progression. Defensively, simpler schemes for the secondary not to get lost in coverage. We've got some players at CB who can handle man coverage. Manufacture a pass rush with the LBs.

We still win 8-9 games this year. Without Marshall, it's 7-8. We'll be fine.
Yeah, I think it is a mistake to extrapolate from the UGA loss. UGA is really good, but they also played a perfect game. On the other hand, we were uptight and had a bad game. We are better than we played. So I think you will see us play some really tough games the rest of the way.

If we lose 6 or more games and look bad doing it then I think the coaching staff will have to take a very hard look at themselves in the off-season.

But I honestly don't think that will happen. 7 or maybe 8 wins and a decent bowl game is what I expect.

UK has owned us recently. I have no idea why everyone thinks we are better them. We have all thought that for 4 straight years to the same results. Until we actually beat UK we canít count that as a W. Iím not saying we canít beat them or we donít have more talent, just pointing out we are 0 for during the Muschamp era and that we have looked terrible in all of those games outside of that Deebo td.

I don't think we are better than them. I have stated repeatedly on here that beating UK was my #1 must win game of the year. Until we can beat them, we have no reason to believe we can beat them. Nevertheless, it's still an indictment of where things are that beating them is an accomplishment.

Agree whole heartedly w you. For whatever reason the last two offseasons as fan base (me included) we began to act like we had the players from 2012 etc on our team. Reality is we overachieved the last two years. We have a solid squad but we are still not at the point weíre we can expect to compete let alone beat cfp teams. I know a lot of people wonít like to admit it but if we beat UK thatís a big win for the program at this point. Which like I stated was laughable about 5-6 years ago.

More realistic.

Until we beat KY again, Iím saying itís 50/50, but we are the better team.

Ole Miss is also being overvalued by most of our fans IMO.

FL, if the same Gator team shows up that lost to KY, we beat them by 2 scores. The Swamp is so overrated.

Assuming we don't get a 12th game, I'll go with 8-3 or 7-4. 9-3/8-4 if you wanna look at it that way. A&M, Ole Miss and UK are winnable, but I'd be very surprised if we go 3-0 against those teams.

A lot of football to play (and a lot of other stuff to worry about in the "real world"), but we'll still make a bowl - and possibly a good one at that.

Vandy, Kentucky, Mizzou, Tenn, Fla, Ole Miss and Chatt are all wins.
Losses are the most probable ones... A/M and Clemson. We finish the season at 8-3 and surprise some big name in a bowl game.

Unless you are Georgia, Auburn or Alabama winning on the road in the SEC is difficult.

Mark Stoops has done a good job up there. Beating UF at Gainesville was no small feat - even if they have a new coach and are an average team.

Vandy should be a good indicator of whether we are going to whimper through the season or come back to life. I think it will be the latter.

Why would anyone pay hundreds of dollars to travel to a 3rd rate bowl game? It isnít fun. Yes, I was naive enough to buy such a ticket in the past. I will never be that delusional again.
