Default Re: Predicting 2014

It feels pretty awesome looking at our schedule and truly believing we have a chance to win every game. You can break down every game one by one and at the very minimum have a 50/50 shot at winning even sitting here in January. Auburn is coming off a national championship appearance and will have another off-season to perfect Malzahn's offense and I still believe we can pull out a win If we play the assignments right and don't beat ourselves.

Theme of next year should be better than good. Better than good in the off-season, better than good in the classroom, better than good on the practice field and better than good on game-day.

This will surprise some of you, but I see no reason why not to predict that we win them all. It took me a while to become a Connor guy until perhaps 2-3 games after he took over the job. I was a full on Shaw fan every game over the last two seasons. We were blessed to have him.

I don't think Dylan hasn't had his moment to show us he's ready to be the fulltime guy yet, but I think he's capable. What I AM confident in is our coaches abilities to choose the best guy to run our offense.

That said:

vs Texas A&M No Manziel...W
vs East Carolina W
vs Georgia We do not lose at home...W
at Vanderbilt No Franklin...W
vs Missouri @home...W
at Kentucky W
vs Furman W
at Auburn Tough game...W (PS, I think we'd have beaten them the other night)
vs Tennessee Revenge is sweet...W
at Florida UF rebounds next year, close one...W (still question their offense
vs South Alabama W
at Clemson Boyd, Watkins, Bryant, Beasley, Catanzaro et al...gone...W

Could be our year. Why not?

Tre Mason is a Beast. He ran for over 500 yards in two games against Bama and FSU. Dude will be a Heisman finalist if he stays healthy. I'll say that the only game we lose will be to Allbarn if we are to lose one. This is only due to history. If we have bye week prior to Allbarn, I say we win.

Is it that many? Powell and Easley have already announced they're going pro, and I think Marcus Roberson has too. Purifoy is also a good candidate to go as well.

Maybe I'm wrong.

I could easily see us losing at least one game through the first 5 weeks. We will more than likely be playing ranked teams in A&M, UGA, and Mizzou (with the possibility of Vandy). The good thing is that A&M, UGA, and Mizzou are at home. I see us losing at Auburn. I think we beat UF due to the fact that we will have 2 weeks to prepare and get healthy.

we have an open date and then we have Furman before the Auburn game... gotta like the way that part of the schedule breaks for us!

you are correct, i think they'll return 8 at the most, counting Purifoy on the way out... that's the three best out.

The nicest thing about that schedule is that we don't have 3 road games in a row. As a matter of fact we don't even have back to back road games.

I haven't looked at it closely but I remember that 2 of their corners are going pro and Easley is going pro as well. They'll still be very good on defense. The question will be what can the Duke OC do with their offense. They certainly can't be any worse than what they were this year.

My guess:

I think we're a 9-3 team next year with losses to Auburn, a trap game loss to UF, and another loss we wouldn't necessarily expect. This could be UGA or even Mizzou.

Connor was a very good QB to have in the 2nd half this year. Will Dylan make the critical plays late in games or will he throw the costly pick? (which he's more prone than Shaw to do).

9-3 may be enough to get us to the SECCG. I think Mizzou and UGA will have about a 9-3 team. That should be the 3 team race at the top with UT and UF fighting for 4th and 5th.

Teams that play Auburn every year will learn how to slow them down. We played Malzahn's offense twice now even though it was a little different with Newton. We also have last year's Auburn games against LSU which they lost and Mississippi State which they couldn't move the ball well on.

Spurrier's a smart guy. Auburn isn't a game we should expect to lose. But we won serveral close ones this year that could have gone the other way. Hopefully none of those type games will swing the wrong way next year.

I would be happy with this. But it's not gonna happen bc the PEACH bowl is part of the college playoffs now and will be reserved for top 12 teams or so. Very unlikely 9-3 gets u. In that mix.

Thompson starts the year against A&M but it is pulled for Mitch who leads us to 11-1 with a loss to Auburn at Jordan-Hare. We win the East, rematch auburn in the SECCG and emerge with a victory and a playoff berth. That would be cool if unlikely
