After all this time, I don’t have any hope that the OL is gonna be any good this year.
Sometimes the light comes on for Gus and he starts calling really good games after the 3rd or 4th game. This doesn’t feel like one of those years. It feels like another Gus-shell year.
Our defense is championship caliber. As long as they don’t have a game like MS St or UT last year, they will make sure we beat the teams we’re supposed to beat regardless of what the offense does.
I don’t see us making the drastic changes needed to have a reasonable chance to beat the top 3 left on our schedule. 9-3 is the absolute best case scenario for this team. A&M and UF will be really tough. I’m sure they will both be favored. We might get lucky and squeak one of them out (like A&M last year) We should be favored against MS St but that game won’t be easy We’ve got to do a lot better than what we saw Saturday
Kent St, OM, Arky, and Samford are games we should definitely win. So I put our floor at 6-6 (bowl eligible baby!!!)
So anywhere from 6-6 to 9-3 seems realistic with 7-5 as our most likely destination.
