Default Dark Horse?

Is there a dark horse in the SEC East? #CFB

"I wouldn't be totally floored if South Carolina made it to Atlanta" @BarrettSallee



Could we be the dark horse team this year? How many wins will it take to win the east? Will coach Wolford finally get our o-line up to standards?

I think with a few lucky breaks we could be the dark horse team this year. We have what it takes on offense when it comes to QB and skill players. If the defense can step it up who knows.

I think we could make it in with 8-9 wins if 5 of those or more are SEC. if we beat Florida and UGA I think we'd have a damn good shot.

We'll need 6 wins in conference to do it imo. I just don't see us beating UGA in Athens and they should be the favorite. If they stumble though we could do it. The East is still pretty weak.

Default Re: Dark Horse?

I think we're looking at 7-5 or 8-4, with a lean towards 7-5. Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida could go either way. Won't rule out Clemson either. Rivalry games are hard to predict, and the home team usually has an advantage in this series.

I think 2018 is when we can make a real case.

If the offense reaches its potential and Bentley takes the next step, we could end up running up the score and overachieve. But, that's a big IF.

I see nothing on the defensive line that can generate a pass rush. Until we rebuild a nasty DL and secondary, I can't see us doing much better than 7 wins.

This is true, or we could also put up 50 points a game, to that I say, who needs a D line? A few ints from the LB core, skai moore destroying plays, with the offense we have we could be Oregon a few years ago good on offense. Hopefully roper puts more emphasis on the hurry up.

We had that scenario in 2014, Dylan Thompson and no pulse on defense post Clowney. This is the SEC, you only go so far without a decent DL.

While true, in 2014 we lost 3 games that we had double digit leads with less than 6 minutes remaining. The offense put up points early in games, but in the 4th quarter we struggled to get first downs. We were closer to winning 10 games in 2014 than many realize. While a better defense would've helped, so would have an effective offense in the 4th quarter. We couldn't pickup a first down to save our life in the 4th quarter that year.

Spot on. We just needed a single First Down in the last two possessions in 3 separate games to get a W - and we could not do it. That tells me we had a better team/talent than our record, just had a QB without the run option so we could not salt away games. Shaw would either run for the First, or draw the D in and complete a dump-off pass.

Bentley does not have the running ability either, but if he reads Defenses well enough, he should be able to find the soft spots and get the short pass completed. Also, I believe we have more weapons at RB, WR and TE than Thompson had.

And to Coondog, I think we had a legit O Line last year, we just paid the price for inexperience at the skill positions, especially QB. The O Line can certainly improve (and should) but they were good enough last year. Amazing how the Offense suddenly improved - with the same O Line - once we started fielding a little talent at the skill positions.
