Just looking for progress throughout he season. We’re gonna be so young, it’s unreasonable to expect to compete for any championships. Let’s hope we can plug some holes through the portal.

This is good to know. Someone needs to tell LSU this. They should probably go back and lose a couple more games last year.

6-6 at best.
I was just reading the LSU board. I didn't find any posters saying they will be happy with 5-6 wins as long as they see progress. Someone needs to tell them about "the process" because they are all screwed up. They actually expect their new hire to win now and to compete for the SEC West again next year. Don't these dumbasses know it takes 3 years minimum to change the roster?

There is an outstanding chance we go winless after Oct 7th . Does Sunbelt Billy survive 6 losses in a row?
Yes. See 2013 for example when William Lawrence Duncechump survived a 7 game losing streak, including to FCS Georgia Southern in The Swamp not completing a pass against us.

Remember, Foley is still calling the shots.

Don’t they know it takes a minimum of 3 years to purge all the players not bought in, lack discipline and lazy and to give time for Kelly to get his guys in to build that solid foundation?

At least we scooped up Mertz before Kelly could grab him. Winning!

They signed 7 portal transfers yesterday after landing the #6 ESD class. What iswrong with these people who expect to win now?

6-6 at best. Would not at all be surprised with a third losing season in a row. When was the last time that happened here?

You have to go all the way back to the WWII era -- 80 years ago -- to find the last Florida team that managed three consecutive losing seasons. If it happens, when it happens, it won't just be Napier whose butt is on the chopping block. The AD will be there first, and deservedly so.

This. I'm trying to remember the 1st coach who had to suck balls for his first 3 years in order to build a championship program. The truth is, "multi year rebuild " is just a built in excuse for some. There's absolutely nobody that had back to back losing seasons their 1st two years and became great. Please, if I'm missing someone, point em out. My point is we should expect atleast 8 wins next year. Period.

It’s hard to know what to expect next year with a roster that appears like it’ll be extremely young. Not to mention we’ll still get some portal players and possibly a few more on NSD. It’s way too early to make any predictions IMO.

I'm not making any predictions. I'm just not going to lower my expectations. I'm more in the same camp as you. I want to see who we pick up in the portal aswell

I see no useful purpose in predicting the 23 season before we have completed the recruiting cycle, spring practice, summer attrition and early fall practice. There really isn't enough data points to make and intelligent prediction. We have had enormous turnover of players who were in the system during BN's inaugural. Some think it's addition by subtraction, I will withhold judgement until I see the additions as to date it's only subtractions and crickets entering thru the portal. I've said before I am impressed with BN's focus on character and recruiting solid citizens, yet the jury is out on whether that is sustainable in the instant gratification, big money NIL era. Maybe mercenary rosters like UK employs in hoops will become the new normal. I hope not! It certainly appears we will be freshman/ sophomore heavy so does this put us at a disadvantage or is it the opportunity BN needs to prove his process is the best option. I don't possess that crystal ball. I certainly am hoping for the best because I'm tired of changing out the staff every 3 or 4 years.

When are all these plug and play portal players going to start rolling in? Seems like other teams, you know, those that actually expect their coaches to win games, are already actively taking commitments from the better players available.

I see 5-7 at best looking at this schedule, the poor in game decision making and how this off season is going so far in the personnel and coaching decisions. 4-8 or 3-9 are looking possible.
