I disagree. Please, sleep on us! Nothing for anyone to be worried about. NC State needs to focus on whoever they play after us.

Our offense should be better. It will depend on the O-line though. Defense may or may not be improved. I wouldn't sleep on any team winning the East save for Vandy. My pick goes to Florida though. Kirby and the dogs should easily win, but I don't think he is a good coach.

It's weird to me, but given the circumstances, next season will be very important for Kirby Smart. He really needs to be competitive, and should win the east. UGA comes out with what they return and another 7-8 win season and the clock has started on his tenure.

Muschamp gets a free ride for 3-4 years. I hope for progression but he's not under near the pressure as Smart.

Kirby inherited a 10-win team in a state that is rich with HS talent. Last year was a step back for them.

Ah, the proverbial O-line caveat.

If what you say is accurate, we will have a bang-up year. We return 4 veteran starters, get Stanley back, Helms/Knott/Camper are 100% healthy now, and we add in some promising newcomers (like RS Freshman Hutcherson and JUCO Daley) to what was already a good and deep O Line.

Don't confuse our Offensive struggles with a bad O Line. The blocking was just fine after we got some playmakers - Deebo, Bentley, Rico - healthy and in the line-up. They still lack experience but that is coming - you will be amazed how good the O Line looks when Bentley learns to change the blocking schemes, check out of plays, hit the hot read, etc.

I am not saying that the O Line can't be better - they will be - but Bentley's health and development are much bigger factors in our success on Offense than the O Line.

I really dislike articles like this one. They always feel like they are pandering. Not that I hope they are wrong. It's just that the article doesn't break new ground, it's a regurgitation of things we all already know or think so it comes off as contrived. Seriously, how many "dark horse" or "don't sleep on" articles do they write about various teams? I get it. They have a job to do. It's the dog days. They have space. Still, do some real reporting. Whatever happened to that?

I said this when Smart was hired. UGA is going to go from winning 9-10 a year to 7-8. They'll hate themselves when that happens and Richt is down in Miami going 9-3/10-2 and playing for conference championships most years.

Kirby won 8 in his first year, and he's showing that he can recruit. Georgia will be fine. I think they are the team to beat in the east this season, but if our offense is as dynamic as it looks like it's going to be and our defense continues to improve, there's no reason why we won't be in the mix.

The reason it feels like pandering is because that's all it is. Just another article designed to get clicks... and it works. I read most of it even though I knew what it said before I even opened it.

I believe the East is as open this year as it has been in the past 8 years or so. That being the case, we failed to capitalize when we had teams far superior to the team we will field this year. We need to focus on more attainable goals, like beating UK again. If we can't beat UK, then don't even bother talking about the East.

UGA will be fine - they have too much talent not to be fine, and they should have the best RB tandem in college football. But there is a learning curve with becoming a head coach and getting the right staff put together - see University of Florida, Athletics, Football, Muschamp, William "Boom".

I have never said that Smart could not turn out to be a really good head coach, just that he was going to have to take a few lumps first, and he has a bunch more to take before he gets there. That is why I did not want him here, and why I would be surprised to see them take the East this year.

The East is UGA's to lose this year. I'm not going to be sold on Florida until Butter Teeth fields an offense worth a damn and proves that he can win with a defense that isn't full of Muschamp's players. Tennessee is more of a dark horse than USC is honestly given the amount of talent Butch has assembled there. If he can ever figure out how to put it together, they'll contend.

USC will have a good year if they can beat NC State, Mizzou, UK, Arkansas, and Vandy while dominating LaTech and Wofford. CWM probably needs 1 big upset and UF looks like the best candidate. Anything else is gravy. I'm hoping for respectable showings @aTm, @UT, @UGA, Clemson.

CWM has said that we are 2 more recruiting classes away from being where we need to be so I'll adjust my expectations to that.

Any path in the East demands us starting 2-0 in league play by beating Mizzou and UK. I wish we still had UGA early in the season b/c it wasn't necessarily a season killer to lose to them in the first conference game of the season. But if we lose to either Mizzou or UK, that'll be tough to come back from.
