Or we can be chick$hit and just play a non-SEC, extremely lower-tiered school for HC for the lay-up win. I like the move. Make HC worth something for the alumni and such.

Are they looking to lose two straight homecoming games?

I remember being Florida's homecoming. I don't recall if we were Miss State's, too.

There has never been a Purple Game. Stadium Should look good. Good call making in Sept.

Most of our fans will ignore the "purple Game" and just where whatever color they wish, like normal.

Went to the 2011 "Purple Game" against Western Michigan. There did seem to be more purple than usual, but it was nowhere near what most would call a "blackout."

Tough schedule, I would say 8 or 9 wins.

Tough schedule. Maybe. Maybe more. I’m going to enjoy the clean slate.
