    I hope you are right, but I see some unusual weather in the games of the most recent data set. I really do hope you are right, though.

      Even vs a top team in UF through 3 quarters our D was good. UF had 10 points and all because of our turnovers letting them start inside our own 30 and that was great weather. Was not till the staff stopped the players by going to prevent on O {which we always do} and on D that UF scored on us.

      I agree, I’ve seen really good D played this year. But I don’t really know football enough to pick out the details. I can see the scoreboard at end of the game, though. 🙂

    Our defense has actually played exceptional starting with the Florida game, but the injury to Smith’s wrist forced the offense to falter, then the injury to Smith’s shoulder in the miss. state game, compiled by the absurd and unusually high # of dropped passes (I say unusually high because before that game and since then, there hasn’t been passes dropped like in that game of course the # of attempts has drop significantly as well, but even with that, when passes have been thrown and on target, they have been caught.) Including 3 touchdowns and several key 1st down throws that would have extended drives. Then the south carolina game, Smith trying to play through the pain, when he should’ve been pulled end of the 1st quarter, but at halftime atleast. In the miss. state and Carolina games, our defense was on the field probably for 75%-80% of each game, and held both teams to under 30 points. I would be interested to see the # of plays both teams ran against us. This defense has played phenomenal football most of the season, and after losing the best defensive player in the country last year in Josh Allen, and your entire starting 2ndary plus your most experienced player and 1st sub in Westry, but the scariest part is, we only lose a couple players, Our defense has the potential to be EVEN BETTER next season than it was last year or has been this year. Add in a healthy Terry Wilson and the rest of the offense, we might be a top-10 team next year with a legit chance at uga and the SEC east crown.
