    I'd have to agree. UGAy has out recruited the f out of us in recent years so you'd think that would give them an advantaged. But then it's UGAy so I give us a 50/50 chance.

      Smart played 3 tough games last year and lost 2 of them.

      Their OC was laughed out of Voleville and everywhere else he has been.

      That being said, as much as we struggle to score, I suspect we will drop another game or two that we "shouldn't".

      If we end up with two losses, this will be an incredible start for Mullinz.

        Mullen has been money so far and we could improve further but I suspect we have a letdown game. If we lose two SEC games it is still a pretty darn good season. Just beat fsu and cherry pick their DEs and DBs. We badly need DL this class.

          The kiss of death for a young team. Hopefully they can overcome prosperity.

            Scoring is going to bite us in the ass eventually though Chump did get through 2012 by only unintentionally finding the end zone.
            Your lack of confidence in Smart is admirable however he did beat
            # 24 ND (Finished 11th)
            #17 MSU (Finished 19th)
            #4 Auburn (SECCG) (Finished 10th)
            #2 OK (Finished 3rd)
            losing to
            #10 Auburn (Reg season)
            and of course Alabama.
            That looks more like six tough games losing only two.

              Other than the KY debacle Mullinz has passed every test he's been given:
              Blowout of UT on the road with a hostile crowd
              Another road game and hostile MSU crowd against a team that was favored to win
              Hard fought win against a highly (albeit over) ranked LSU.
              And blowouts against the Div 2 teams we should blowout.
              The next test is Vandy. That game should never be in doubt. We should pull away early and have subs in the 4th qtr. If it DOES go that way that will say a lot about Mullen.

                  One test at a time. Enjoy the ride. Life is a journey not a destination.

                    I'm glad at the early returns, but it's never this easy and painless. It's not about him it's about them and buy-in. Hopefully you're right and I'm wrong. Ten wins would be massive for recruiting.

                      Honestly, I am enjoying it. I really am. Gotta beat the Noles. They look hapless this year under a 1st year coach. Mullen is doing a lot of good this year and we must capitalize on it. I don't think this unreasonable or overly demanding.

                        I was wrong the whole season, but I have a feeling we lose at least one other SEC game other than UGA, maybe Missou or even Vandi. Don't see us losing to Chump. As far as the UGA game itself, like others said, we have a decent chance. To have confidence that we can compete with UGA this year is above my expectations coming into the season.

                          Not ready to anoint us as beating UGAly, but I do think we have a better than 23% chance of beating them.

                          We're going to beat the leghumpers and the crims.
                          I'm more worried about a "let down" game against a lesser opponent.
                          Oh wait, the clowns are a "lesser opponent" at this point. As they should be.
                          Let's put these fools back in their place.
