We don't even have baby corners to grow up. They are just not there period. Complete lack of enough bodies

I'm asking sincerely, what do you say that? They might have some juniors to leave (though with Swinney up there, you never know) but they're only guaranteed to lose five starters from this year's team, three on offense and two on defense.

We know we'll be losing Shaw, Patrick, Clowney, Quarles, Sutton, Hampton, and Legree. So have you heard something about any of their players who might leave early?

I expect the offense to be great next year. I expect the defense to be just average. 9 wins

I agree with this. Georgia will be TOUGH. They are killing it in recruiting. Their young defense will now be experienced, plus Gurley & Marshall. Auburn is a 100% loss in my books. Florida will also be tough. I mean damn, we struggled against them despite their injuries. Tennessee will be tough and their recruiting class scares me. Clemson on the road with be rough one too. I honestly think our win streak MAY come to an end. Watson is going to a good one for them.

Losses - Georgia/Auburn/Florida & the one game a year we blow it. My guess would be Vanderbilt.

Our offense won't be as good. I love Dylan as a person, but he's not a 60% passer. We'll have huge holes on defense. A step back year, maybe 2.

Geez offseason threads already and everyone is already down on a team before we see who leaves from our team and others and way before recruiting ends...we will not go back to an 8 win team until after spurrier leaves. Way too much talent on the roster. Besides, don't you think the coaches know spots we are thin at? We will fill those holes just like we did this year, last year, the year before. We are at the point where the next guy just steps up. 10+ win seasons are becoming our norm. Relax and enjoy another possible 11 win season before you stress on the next one.

We are one of the youngest teams. According to a July report which I will not identify, we come in at #21 of the 25 youngest teams for 2013.

Mizzou will suck next year, as will TAMU. Florida has to many problems that will not be able to be corrected over 1 season even though their D will remain Tough. UT's offense will get slightly better or stay the same, their D get's tougher. Auburn, well, the way to beat that team is simple, LSU showed how to do it. Stay in your gaps. create a wall at the LOS and let your Linebackers fan to make the play.

Vandy won't be as good, UK will still suck. We will have UGAY at the beginning of the year with a new untested QB, on the road in Williams Brice, I like our chances.

As for the Clemson game, really it's going to be easier this year, that Offense is going to crash and burn if Chad morris stays, he needs to jump ship ASAP to the nearest HC position.

That, and make a sacrifice to the rain gods and play in a monsoon, so they can fumble away the ball on the first three possessions.

Why is Auburn all of sudden invincible? They barely beat miss st and miss and divine intervention allowed them to beat UGA and Bama. The only game that I was truly impressed by Auburn was in the sec championship game. And as far as worrying about UGA killing it recruiting...what else is new?

I'm heading to the plains next year for the our away game. I'm trying to make one big SEC road trip each season. Last year UF and Vandy, This year UGA, next year Auburn. Maybe i'm the curse (1-2)...

People really think our offense wont be as good? It will be way better than with Shaw. Shaw is a great winer. But mostly does just enough to win. We will be spreading the ball around all over the field next year. It doesnt take a great QB to run spurriers system. It takes a QB that trust it and his arm. And is willing to make the throw.

Our passing offense has been pretty putrid while shaw has been the QB. Its just the truth. How many games did we have under 250 passing yars? Almost all of them. How many were below 200? A lot. How many below 100 a few. Thats just terrible lol. But we still won so it doesnt matter.

Likr i said earlier. We will rack up yards next year. But were going to need to cause dylan will tirn ut over way more than weve been used too. So i hope to get the best of both worlds. Lots of yards and lots of points

Also people are going to see a second stud RB next year in David Williams. Kid is a game breaker.

I think they are far from invinceable but we ar eplaying them at Auburn. If we were home I would give us the nod but no way we will be the favorite at their place. I am not even sure if we have ever beaten Auburn.

i understanding discussing it because we have nothing else to do, but predicting games before you know our roster or the roster of the teams were playing is a guessing game. theres no way anybody should feel real good if we win 8 games next year nor do i think theres any reason to feel we're destined to have a tough year.

Default Re: 2014 might be a tough year

A&M will still be tough. They lose Manziel and Evans but they still are as deep at RB as we are and have talent on talent at WR. That first game will be a true barometer for what kind of team we'll have.

Yeah UGA will be breaking in a new QB but he'll be a senior just like Dylan Thompson. I expect him to be more of a game manager than Murray was.

Again it's way too early to be making predictions but going off everything I know right now I'd predict 9-3 next year. I don't know who we lose to but I think Mizzou, A&M, UGA, and Auburn will be our toughest challenges. We lose 2 of these games and drop a random one we don't see coming. UF has a lot of talent but I don't see them making a big Auburn-like turn around in 1 year. Bowl game here yet?
