    Ignoring home field advantage, they’re saying we should finish 10-2 before the bowl game

    Sawyer smith!!!! NOW….Eddie can actually open the playbook. Sorry terry got hurt but this may turn out to be a positive for our offense if the last game is any indication.

    For how the rest of the SEC fandom complains about our poor scheduling our first two opponents ranked higher than some of our fellow conference counterparts. Just saying we might of played MAC schools but they weren’t push overs.

    With the obvious exception of Florida and Georgia, this is a pretty damn agreeable schedule. Should have no fewer than 8 wins.

    Wow. South Carolina and Missouri not getting any love. For once a ranking system that sees SC for the fraud they’ve been. Now let’s go prove our higher ranking.

    So much for that SEC juggernaut schedule. Y’all only play 2 teams ranked in the top 40 on this. HAHA

      Hey hood rat, too bad your team isn’t in the top 40, then beating you all might actually mean something. Heck you aren’t even in the top 100. How many teams on your schedule are in the top 100 lol

      To bad you’ll lose to every opponent you face in the top 100.
