Reasons to be Optimistic
I’m not on TigerRee’s level of tiger sunshine but I think we can take the W this weekend.

First of all, our defense will keep us in EVERY game that we play. Period. Best dc in the nation, two top five picks, and great leadership.

We have gotten our shite together when put in adverse situations. First game of the year O was on the hot seat faced against top ten team (smoked em), then played our arse off after two lackluster non conference games.

When the pressure is on, our team gets nasty. I expect our leadership, swag, and chip on our shoulder from Florida to be the difference makers on Saturday against a good Georgia team.

I'm not so sure about this after a couple of games this year. This defense is missing the killer instinct we've grown accustomed to. They'd have stepped up after we took the lead late Saturday otherwise. They just laid down and got run over though. It was pretty pathetic and not typical at all of a Dave Aranda defense.

re: Reasons to be Optimistic
I agree. A better way to put it would be they have the ability to keep us in every game we play. I expect a p*ssed off LSU D on Saturday with Aranda, White and co. taking last week personal

The pressure wasn't on in the second half last week? Because we definitely didn't play nasty.

I'm on record saying I think we come into this game VERY fired up and ready to play

Let’s also just recognize that we were on the road in a hostile environment and that Jacob Phillips did not play.

Also that Georgia’s OL has struggled in some games.

. Agreed. I want to be optimistic and beleive otherwise, but this defense has had way too many breakdowns this year to depend on them like we used to be able to.

Certainly top 10, Dan Mullen has found his weaknesses and exposes them regularly.

Aranda is starting to remind me of Bo Pelini in style.

If giving up only 20 points isn't enough to keep a team in the game, the problem is not with the defense.

If Mullen can outscore your D 20+ points with Fitz and Franks, then yeah, it is the D.

There's no "our" here. You go get your shite pushed in on your own time. Leave us out of your shite.

re: Reasons to be Optimistic
If your offense scores 7 and 19 points vs those teams I am Gonna day the offense has some issues too.

Aranda is pretty stout at adjusting after a poor performance.
