    It may be tough because of early emotion, but I think we will take control and wear them down. They just are not very talented overall. Steele also said Tennessee would be improved and win 8 games or so last year. He misses a lot.

    Agreed. If anyone wants to offer me that bet, Ill take it. Miami +14 wouldn't last long in Vegas. It would be bet down to Miami +10 in about an hour.

    Nobody s always right, but the Vols easily could have won 8 games last year. They were better than their record.

    Teams in the 100s offensively aren't "good" by objective standards-- put it this way the Miami defense we're ragging on was as good or better as our offense.

    I look at Miami and see a team with little NFL caliber talent. Last year Miami allowed 45 to Duke, 41 in a loss to Virginia (who went 4-8), 32 to Boston College (BC's highest output of the year as they went 2-10), and had winning shootouts against GA Tech and NC State.

    Notre Dame beat them 41-3.
    Kansas St beat them 52-13.
    FSU beat them 33-20 at Miami.

    IMO, they would finish 4th in the SEC east. Returning starters does not mean returning talent. Look at some of our previous players as examples. TN, UK, etc keep returning players but it has not helped them a whole lot here lately.

    Golden has also only won 9 games once in his career and 8 games once. The Canes have little to no fan support and what they accomplished against us in the 80's will have no effect on the game. Any time they have played a team with decent to pretty good talent they generally get their ass handed to them.

    The only thing that concerns me is the emotion among the players and hoping our offense gels in time with an early road game. Even with that, I think we run the ball down their throats at will in the 2nd half and pull away.

    He's actually the 3rd first year starting SEC QB to win the Heisman in the last six seasons.

    You could make a definite argument for that- we've played down to competition under Boom pretty consistently, Toledo returns a lot of upper class playmakers and with Miami the next week and both players' and our current staff's tendency to ignore the opponent ahead of them in favor of practicing for games they actually care about it could be dangerous, on the other hand it is Toledo.

    I'm waiting for the barrage of comments taking Toledo for granted.

    Toledo and Mizzou are going to be 2 of our toughest 5 games this year. Book it.
