Default Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

Scale of 1 to 10...Im a 6. 2010 in Atlanta was a 9.5. Only a NC appearance would be higher.

Now...its a 7. Wow. 2-0. 2 wins on the road. The defense showing a LOT of improvement. Offense looking outright explosive at times. Special teams showing out.

Why only a 6? Well....I wanna see the Kentucky game first. They've won 3 in a row over us. Insane. Its at home at night. This could be THE game that the program officially swings back to 2010-2013 form.

After this....La Tech very winnable. Texas A&M and Arkansas look extremely vulnerable. Im just a fan so I can look ahead without any risk....so the potential for a 6-0 or 5-1 start (with Vandy and Wofford still down the road) is very real. Not to mention Florida looks like garbage and Tennessee looked very average. Even Georgia looked good but not unbeatable....and we play them between their games @Florida and @Auburn so we are the "trap" game.

Soooo....Im cautiously excited at a 6. Beat UK and I might be a 7.5 or even an 8.

But cant help but see we draw 2 of the weaker West teams this year. If we can win all our home games....and win 2 out of 3 @UGA, @UT, @A&M....nah....I cant go to 9 excitement yet.

Still a 6. Beat UK boys!!!

Analyzing opponents....

Arkansas is absolutely awful at 2 spots: D line and WR. The 2 spots that we have struggled to handle....bodes well for us. Lock em down on D and run the ball/give Bentley time on O. We're gonna win this one.

Tennessee has no defense and no passing game.

Kevin Sumlin will be fired in 2 weeks.

2017 could be interesting if we beat UK.

Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

I'm trying hard to use my brain and remain at a 4 like I was pre-season. Desperately trying not to be the 8 my heart wants to be! We've improved, but, have a ways to go as well. Still have to improve in the secondary and up front on offense. I'm cautiously optimistic. If we start 4-0, which is looking much more likely than not, I'll be at a 9, and it'll be a hard fall.

My excitement will forever be at a 4. Unless we go undefeated and win the natty.

Then I might go up to a 5

Default Re: Your excitment level scale 1-10 after Week 2? Mine...a 6.

My excitement level is at a ten. But not because we've got a "ten" team. I'm a ten because we've just notched two wins against teams as dogs going in without setting foot in WB. Those two wins could very easily be the difference between 6-6 & 8-4. Will Muschamp cannot sell 6-6 to big time recruits, he doesn't have that resume. Every game we put in the win column will greatly impact the program going forward. We must show progression. Much more so for us than say a Kirby Smart at uga, who is always going to get his share of elite talent based on GA demographics alone.

I see plenty of concerns going forward as ra pointed out already. One thing that he didn't mention that jumped out to me last night watching highlights of the Auburn game & that was how fast their DL got up the field on passing downs. I'm proud of how our DL has played the run & how hard they play in general. But a lack of speed up front is quite noticeable when trying to get after the QB on passing downs. Bottom line, all the issues didn't go away in one year so I still have prospective about where I think we are. And Missouri is simply not very good imo. But not beating yourself will be the difference between losing & winning against some teams that might have a better overall roster. Thus far, we're not beating ourself.

One big thing that I don't think has been pointed out, at least not pointed out enough, is just how well all our receivers are catching the ball. I may have missed a play or two somewhere but I don't remember a single drop thru two games. Edwards tried to grab one off the turf last night but that was a tough ball & I can't hang that on him. NC State & Missouri both are proof positive that simply delivering the ball accurately doesn't guarantee a completion. We're also doing a super job of taking care of the ball.

I don't know about the Clowney comparison yet, but Sterling has been solid and I agree that he's going to be a great one. I never understood his low ranking - a UA all american who had signed with Alabama and looked to have great skills. Good to see him contributing already.

We were underdogs to NC State and Missouri. How that translates to excitement is beyond me. I suppose it is somewhat exciting that we're not actually worse.

Dark days for the football program. The days of me having knee-jerk typed "9!!!!!" in response to this question are long gone.

But for those oozing with excitement knock yourselves out. I'd prefer to look realistically at what we've done: start a(nother) rebuilding year 2-0 against 2 teams just above Akron caliber, who were supposed to have beat us.

Why dark days? We're on the up and up. I'm sorry Muschamp, someone we all know you don't care for, is the one creating this success but that's how it is. Also we started last year, an actual rebuild year, 1-1. This is our first 2-0 start since 2012 and the first time in 124 years we've started 2-0 while playing the first two games on the road.
