Default Toughest Sept. Game

Every game is not easy, but what would you consider the toughest game in the first month of the season? (Stole this from South Carolina 247Sports on Facebook)

Vanderbilt. I know it sounds stupid but I am serious. Facing a division conference team in the first month of football is always a tough thing to deal with. Before that it used to be Georgia, until we moved them to mid season.

The years we play Vandy in September, I'd say yes. However, they don't come to Williams Brice until later in the season.

TAMU at their house will be the toughest we play in September. I think Kentucky will put up a fight but if our run defense could hold them to less that 300 yards, we should win. I'm not sure what it is with them, but they have our run defense pegged for the last three years. They do more to us than any other team we face, UGA included.

I'm seeing 4-1 in that stretch though, I don't think anyone will keep pace with our O except tamu.

While A&M does seem the obvious choice, until we prove that we can beat Kentucky, that is my answer.

I said A&M. Mizzou on the road is not easy. NC State almost got my pick simply because its first.

I said A&M, but looking at that schedule, Louisiana Tech is the only team we should beat. And I'm giving us the benefit of the doubt against LA Tech because we play them at home. The Bulldogs won 9 games last year (losing by 1 point to Arkansas and beating Navy in their bowl game), so they probably are not a gimme. When looking at the options, I see several tough games -- first game of the season against NC State in Charlotte (because it is the first game and will be away from WB), three SEC opponents in the first month (2 of those games on the road). All of those games are potentially tough. Then throw in Kentucky, who has run over us, through us, by us and past us for the last three years...

I don't think we are going to have the opportunity to start the season slowly and gradually find our way. We had best come out of fall practice, hitting on all cylinders on both sides of the ball, or we may be in for a disappointing year.

We haven't done so hot against A&M either.

So, hopefully we don't call a timeout in the first set of downs?? Ahhhh, 2015. Or was it the first play of the entire season we had to call timeout???

False start on the first play of the 2015 season. It was a sign of things to come.

I think A&M is the "toughest" but neither of them are easy. As is life in the SEC.

I am in agreeance with most here. A&M is probably the toughest, but I think NC state is going to be the most important. It will give momentum with a win. It could spell a doomed season if we lose.

I see NC State as the most important from the aspect of wanting to get off on the right foot. But, even if we were to lose that game, the REAL season starts in the next game against Mizzou.

I feel like UK is vitally important b/c they've beaten us 3 years in a row and losing to UK is never a part of the recipe for a good year in league play. Beating UK and Vandy need to be foregone conclusions.

Mizzou will have a much improved offense next year. They return Lock, Crockett and have one of the best OCs in the game right now. We will have to be solid in all phases of the game if we hope to beat them. Their defense probably wont improve too much but their offense will be tough to stop given our current make up on defense.

In all honesty, i believe we will field the best offense of all the teams listed, with Mizzou being a close 2nd. The key will be our run defense and our ability to rush the passer with 4.

Thats what worries me the most, especially with lack of LB depth. Damn we are extremely thin there. Having Skai Back is a godsend, but if he gets hurt we are screwed, and so is his draft stock.
