Default The Next 3 Games will Define This Years Team

I'm hoping the defense gels, and defines itself. Please note there are a lot of young players on defense. This is a true test of character and determination that they face. If JD is in the game, the opponents scheme against running plays towards him. It is a fact, and the TEAM need s to step up...Our offense is stellar, and thay are breaking a lot of school records. Fingers crossed for a clean sweep on the road!

Yup...and then THE NEXT THREE will define our season. I know what you meant by this particular three game stretch...and I'm with you.

Praying for a sweep. It would be nice to win out and look back and say that we "won anyway" no matter the issues, distractions, etc, etc.

Go Cocks.

I think the D will come out with alot of new energy this week. With the younger guys getting a shot.

I know people like to say our D and secondary is so young but they really are not at ALL, just the Lbs are young and inexperienced.

We have 2 veteran CBs and 2 JRs at safety. They are just average talent.

Average talent doesn't go to the NFL. Hampton will be drafted and although I think he needs to stick around for his senior year...he'll probably go...so I don't think the talent is average...just perhaps trying to do too much and not playing smart.

I hope we win all three, but I'll be surprised if we don't drop at least one of them.

Perhaps. Hampton and Legree are above average talents for the SEC, maybe.

Doesn't mean anything if you can't play smart and disciplined.

Default Re: The Next 3 Games will Define This Years Team

The truth is you couldn't ask for a better set of road games midseason right now. All present different challenges but they aren't flat out mismatches. Its not like we are going to aTm, Alabama, or LSU either. All three of these games are very managable and there isn't anything on the horizen to look ahead too except possibly Missouri if they are undefeated.

USC just needs to navigate week to week. We don't have to play lights out per se, but just find a way to get wins and get back home to finish the season. The biggest thing USC has to do in these games is to win the turnover battle. If they can do that, I don't think they lose a game during this road stretch.

Shaw will need to continue his gutty performances, and not have a turnover moment. We are going to need our D to step up and perform for 4 quarters in one or two of these games, i believe.

If we don't fix our 2nd half defensive issues we'll drop one, maybe two of these games.

If we can get them fixed, and play a full 4 quarters we're good enough to beat anyone and we'll sweep.

It's kinda what makes football exciting. I bet it's boring to be a 'Bama fan.

Hard to believe that 3 games or a 4th of the games we play could define our season...

He is trying to make big plays like a pick 6 instead of just playing his assignment. That doesn't help the team.

At least it's not like last year, Death Valley and then The Swamp...

Still, it is a big task to play as a visitor for three straight weeks. We have to play with tenacity to sweep all of these games. Yes, I'll take this schedule over playing at Bama or LSU, but the teams that we do play will be energized by the crowd and will want to take shots at us. Let's just win!
