Were gonna end up 9-3.... please explain to me how we will beat Manziel and TAMU? Yea there D is weak. So is ours. And their O is much more consistent and dynamic than ours. Especially with play calling, personnel, and strategy (thats a knock on Miles, not Cam). We will beat Arky. We will be 8-4. And if we get paired up with a decent team with a good O in a bowl game, Id be very worried. I mean everyone says that we "quit" in the ChickFila game vs Clemson, and that was a pretty good bowl game, with 1 of the best matchups of the entire bowl season. How will the team show up in a worse bowl game this year??
They are very close to dropping 2 games.... but they didnt. Thats all that matters. Doesnt matter if they barely beat someone, all that matters is they won.
Yea we beat them by 14pts. But you like to look at yardage. We only out gained them by 20 yards. And it was the 4th game of the year, and Auburns 1st road game. Malzahn is in his 1st year as the head coach and that O was still working the kinks out. Now, that O looks like a well oiled machine, averaging 320 yards rushing on the ground. Top 3 in the nation.
We go 9-4, our losses are against Bama, UGA, TAMU, and Ole Miss. If they go 10-2, their losses will be against Bama and Us. They already beat Ole Miss. They already beat TAMU. The UGA game isnt over, but they look to be the better team right now. And yea UGA was beat up all year, but a lot of their guys are back right now. Gurley and Bennett being the big ones.
We never really improved this year. Our best Ws were vs TCU and Auburn. All in the 1st 4 weeks of the season. Since then, we have been a roller coaster on offense, while they are been improving and solid on O. And its not like their talent level is soooo below ours. They have a lot of really good players on their team and have been very solid in recruiting the past few years.
And its ok that they are better than us right now. They surprised the entire nation this year. While a lot of people were expecting us to go about 8-4. We lost so many players on D. We were expecting to have a bit of a down year. Its ok.
