  1. Unfortunately, ellitor is probably right here. I think that the virus will slow down as the temperature heats up but then come back strong in the fall, probably wiping out football season. Our best hope is that some effective treatments gain wide acceptance, taking some of the sting out of it.
  2. So much for needing that campus visit first....
  3. You raise a good point which coincidentally was discussed in an article in the Tampa Bay Times today. The article cited several local coaches who believe the portal has cost some of their kids scholarships due to the fact that so many schools are reserving a few spots for potential transfers. The other issue discussed in the article is the fact that 57% of athletes in the portal haven’t found a new school yet. I don’t see how this is such a great situation for many of these kids.
  4. I don’t put much stock in what happened last year, or the year before, or the year before that, etc. This is college football. Each year there is an entirely new team. The other thing that stands out to me in college football is how important the schedule is. And whether the game is home or away is a huge part of the relative difficulty of the schedule. Last year I thought we would have a good team - and we did. However, the schedule was just BRUTAL. It was one of the most difficult schedules that I can recall us having. So last year I predicted an 8-4 or 9-3 outcome based on the difficulty of the schedule. This year’s schedule is considerably easier. Burrow is gone; Tua is gone; and Fromm is gone. Our QB will be a sophomore and has gained some experience in the school of hard knocks. He’ll be better. In fact, like T Boyd, I believe he’ll be one of the best QB’s in the SEC. Now what about this year’s O-line? Regardless of an easier schedule, how can we have a better team when we’re replacing 4 guys on the line? Like schedule, the experience of the O-line is usually another very important factor in the success of a team. I think we’ll be OK. Here’s why. First, last year’s line was probably just a notch above average. They weren’t great but they didn’t suck as much as many thought. Reaching the same standard shouldn’t be an insurmountable task. Second, once again schedule is such an important factor. The line will have 5 games to get much needed experience. We’ll beat A Burrow-less LSU. Ditto for Georgia. Our toughest games will Texas A&M and the game @UAT. I see us as 10-2 in the regular season. It’s all about the schedule. War Eagle 🦅 .

  6. Have you looked at next year’s schedule? Where do you think the four losses will come from?
  7. Oops. That might make him too much of a “Gus Guy” for some folks.
  8. Good resume and great coaching genes.
  9. apologies to those whom I may have offended.
  10. But poor taste? NEVER!
  11. Thank you for sticking up for me IAM4. But perhaps what they’re saying is true? Maybe I’m just...
  12. Hopefully we can pull another Aussie out of the fire...
  13. We only got one recruit on early signing day?
  14. If Coach Dye says we’re heading in the right direction then that’s the direction I want to go in.
