This isn't a 'pat me on the back' or 'look at me thread.' If we had beaten UK surely I wouldn't have posted this and I'd still be quietly optimistic. There are signs we aren't a great team, not even that good of a team anyway - when Purdue trounced Mizzou 35-3. I know it's a different circumstance playing Mizzou in the day vs. being a conference foe there at night.... but Purdue absolutely trounced them. Isn't Purdue low level Big 10?
Pretty simple - we are 2-1 - if we continue on that pace, we go 8-4.

The funny thing is that a loss to NC State and a win over UK would still have us at 2-1, but everyone would be giddy and predicting great things, like an East title.

TAMU, UF, Arky and UT all are having issues and appear to be winnable games. UGA is tough but they seem to be about the same level as we thought preseason. Vandy is tougher than we thought, but we have them at home and seem to have their number, just like UK has ours. La Tech and Wofford still look like Ws. Clemson looks very good right now, but we have them at home and we have 8 games for us to improve and get momentum (and for them to lose some of theirs).

Vandy, La Tech and Wofford to get to five wins, then split with TAMU, UF, Arky and UT, steal one from UGA or Clemson. Eight wins. If we beat TAMU on the road and still have UF and Arky at home, we can get our 8 wins without beating UGA or Clemson.

Predicted 7-5 and still going with it. How they get there is irrelevant.

7-5 would be my prediction now. Same losses. Considering how bad Tennessee looks, maybe still 8-4. I'll go with 7-5 though. However, things need to change on the offensive side of the ball in order for us to see 7 wins.
I considered TN a win at one point but after watching John Kelly, he is just a beast. Not sure we have the defense to stop him. And it's at Tennessee....

The schedule isn't nice to us this year to play the more average teams on the road - teams I think we'd beat if they were at Williams-Brice (UT and TAMU at least) will be in hostile environments at night (I assume UT will be at night). Kentucky was a game we absolutely needed to win..

Here is what I don't get...

We were literally 2 SIMPLE mistakes away from tying or beating KY. Score on the 4 and 1 play, and don't get a delay of game penalty on the 49Yd FG and boom there is 10 points.

I realize we didn't score on those two plays, but to reiterate what a few posters said, had we hit on those two plays, this thread wouldn't exist. People would be saying how awesome it was that our defense kept us in in it and how hard they played to keep fighting and win an ugly game etc.etc.

If you want to give up on our season, that perfectly fine, but Don't expect everyone to follow suit.

My prediction was 7-5 regular season and I'll stick with that. 7-5 is an improvement of 1 win (potentially 2) from last year so I'll take it.

Some pundits had us 0-3 at this point in the season, so I'll take 2-1.

I don't have any problem with thoughts/opinions that aren't positive, but you've got to have some basis. And I question your motivation. A thread should induce some debate or information. Your post that started it was a 'revision' of one game. Basically: "Hey, I thought we were going to struggle and now that we've lost one game, I think I'm right. Anyone else want to try to convince me I'm wrong?"

And honestly, I would vote for you to be banned for Oh em gee.

I was being facetious with oh em gee. Back to real discussion, I partly blame having to face two conference opponents within the opening three weeks of the season. NO OTHER Power 5 team did that, and not even from the lower conferences from what I can tell. Why do we get these retarded schedules? It's a clear disadvantage.
