    Maybe I'm too quick to support my team, or oblivious to reality, or maybe I was just so ready for college football to start that the anxiety is still driving. But this year has the makings to be a great one. Here is my reasoning.

    OUR TEAM

    Offense - we will control the tempo, obtain comfortable leads, then transition to clock management.

    Defense - we will be the nations best defense yet again. so much talent at depth.

    Special Teams - Sturgis left a void, nobody will fill it. I just don't think we will rely on it like last year either.


    THE EVENTS

    1) Georgia has something to play for when they take South Carolina at home.

    2) South Carolina gets thumped, we control SEC East.

    3) A win @ Miami and our two SEC East opponents with 1 loss generates realization in our locker room.

    4) We go into our BYE week a starving monster ready to eat

    5) We open SEC play and go undefeated to Atlanta

    6) We beat a 1 loss, but top ranked, SEC West team

    7) We play Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes for the National Championship.


    ... everyone ok with that?

    We already controll the east in that if we win out we are in.
    tOSU will lose 2 games this season.
    An undefeated Florida team will be ranked ahead of a 1 loss west team.

    The burning question is if we make it to the ship, do we want to face OSU or Louisville. I would love to teach Louisville a lesson but I think it's more fun to beat up on OSU.

    Louisville or OSU would be great to whip on, but I think if we did make it, I'd like to face a more respectable team than those two. But I think if I had to pick one, I'd say Louisville this year, then OSU next :cool:

    I don't know about obtaining "comfortable leads" comment.

    Depends on how you define comfortable.

    It is always special when one has a very good/potentially elite football team. We have that. Everything else is speculation, which is fine. But, yes you are making too much out of one win. There are far to many intervening variables and other great football teams to play to call the season special....today.

    Fact is, Muschamp made comments about the 2nd half and him controlling the game on offense and get the win. He knew Toledo had a good offense and that we were down key players on Defense, like super key players.

    so he took the ball in the 2nd half, and ran the hell out of it. in doing so, he probably just realized how good his RB core really is.
