I believe Spurrier will light a fire under the players/coaches a$$es and we will have a great week of practice. We will come out saturday with something to prove. I will admit, last night I had given up on the season and kept asking why does this always happen with this team. The past four years we have had the oppurtunity to get to the SECCG and win that and your more than likely in the NCG. It just seems like the football gods do not want South Carolina to take that next step. But after calming down and taking a step back from the ledge I realized this: UGA has to play LSU, @UT, UF, @AUB, @VANDY. There is a HUGE possibilty they will slip up against two of these teams. UGA has done it the past two or three years so why not us? I believe we run the table and UGA will slip up against LSU and UF. USC will play for the SECCG against BAMA. They will be improved on Defense.

It's funny to watch people run around like a chicken with their head cut off (theoretically speaking) after a single loss. The ultimate "the sky is falling" move. One loss and we're doomed. No team has ever won the East, SEC, or National Championship with 1 loss - a road loss at that!

Do things need to be fixed and changed? Yes. There's no disputing that. But are we doomed? No.

Bama had 1 loss in their last 2 NC's.

What's even funnier is reading someone's post who is attempting to be a voice of reason that has no idea what the hell they are talking about.

I too missed the sarcasm and didn't see any humor in the comments. The guy simply made an accurate statement.

While I tend to think we are WAY short of being a GREAT team and that improving our defense will be a monumental task as young as we are - I do think it's possible that we will have a decent enough defense to beat most teams with the offense that we seem to have...as long as Spurrier can convince Shaw to get rid of the ball more often.

Great to see Nic Jones get the recognition he deserves. Mike Davis is already a BEAST and I think we'll have a good year this season. Still see 2-3 more losses possible...but we could also run the table the rest of the way.

All things a side is that UGA is in the driver's seat now and we are not as good as people thought we were.

We have to hope that UGA loses 2 games which is unlikely. Maybe 1 loss to LSU but they likely take the East again.

Meanwhile Clemson will likely win out.... I think the success of our season will be based on beating Clemson again since we won't make it to Atl again. This was our best roster to make a run this year and best set up schedule wise.

It is hard to win, on the road, but the great teams do it. The great teams are more consistent in big games. The great teams don't worry about football gods or how their schedule lines up...they create their own destiny. We're almost there, but not quite. We're more competitive in big games, we win more consistently at home, and take care of business against non-top 25 teams, but we've got to be more consistent. We still don't have experienced depth at every position.
It's do or die the rest of the way.

I feel good about our team. If you told me before the season our first year starting RB would out perform Gurley and that our defense would cause us the lost I wouldn't have believed it. Honestly I'd say that our defensive issues can be adjusted and we will get much better. UGA, however, doesn't have a defense. I like us to be better than UGA by season's end if we keep our heads up. We are exactly where UGA was the year before last year.

It would be shocking if we didn't lose at least one of those road games to ARK, TEN or MIZZOU.

I'm more so basing it off recent history. We aren't exactly reliable on the road. The showing against Georgia defensively further deflates hope.

the 3 game road stretch at Mizzo, Arky and UT don't seem as much of a lock now...


but I'm sure the fans calling for us to win in a blowout at UGA will think these games are in the bag.
