Default Re: 2017....National Champs?......What if..........?

Its June. So...ok. Lets indulge. Is it possible...and if so...what team do we compare to that did do it?

I say Auburn 2010. Their arch rival Bama won it in 2009. Auburn wasnt expected to be a contender. In 2009 Auburn went 3-5 in SEC. But in 2010 a superstar QB emerged. A defense without superstars but with great chemistry and toughness. A HC who was a brilliant coordinator turned HC. And...they did it. Shocked the world.

So could USC pull the same thing? Well the SEC East is absolutely up for grabs. UF and UGA are rightfully so the default favorites but both have tough West division games and we can beat both.

In Athlon Sports SEC preiveiw their opposing coach comments say Jake Bentley is "the best QB in the East and every other team in the East wishes they had him." They also list USC as having the #2 best WR group in SEC.

SEVERAL of our biggest games are having major QB issues. Texas A&M, UF, Clemson and Tennessee. All are unknown QB situations and jury is still out on Eason at UGA. Muschamp is a brilliant defensive coach.

Major "IF" but...IF we can get the OL up to SEC standards and IF Muschamp can turn a very average DL and secondary into a competitive SEC defense....we could be the team who pulls an Auburn 2010 type stunner.

They were loaded with JC and 4 and 5 star players that they bought. Hopefully we don't do it that way.

That is very motivational. Last week, I found myself hoping that Muschamp can win it in his 2nd year here after reading that Bob Stoops did it in his 2nd year at Oklahoma.

Default Re: 2017....National Champs?......What if..........?

I bet Auburn 2010 was a completely different situation then Carolina as of recent. Auburn was loaded with talent. That new coach more then likely inherited a loaded team like Smart did with UGA. Mushamp inherited a neglected program plagued with years of bad recruiting, player devolpment and bad team morale. Which is horrible to say coming off our best years.
Carolina Football is coming together now though. Anything could happen

Thoughts? This is why people laugh at Carolina fans.

Sorry, but how about first make a logo for breaking 0.500 in conference, then maybe a division championship?

Listen, this is fun to do in the privacy of your own home, but I wouldn't claim it in public.

Getting to Atlanta would bring in the talent we need to have the Defense to go all the way!

The SEC East and possibly Atlanta should be our overall goal this season. One step at a time. Champ will get us ours.

I'm sure I will get flamed for pessimism but I think we will have a good season if we win 7 regular season games. Eight wins would be stellar. Five or six wont be surprising IMHO.

I'm expecting 7 wins with an 8 win being in a bowl game. Anything more is gravy.
