    A week ago, I would have said Georgia. Now that they've lost both of their running backs (who knows for how long) and their defense has been exposed, I'm not so sure. USCe isn't very good. They lost a lot on defense, Clowney isn't really the same force he was last year, and Shaw is as inconsistent as ever. They'll play us similarly to this Arkansas team with the added benefit of a QB who can run.

    I think Florida/Georgia are the top two teams, and USCe/Missouri are right behind.

    I agree and it's about what I said in my thread about liking our schedule.

    They need Gurley back and healthy. With him I think they can give us trouble on the ground and it's a coin flip, without we'll smother them.

    SC does not appear to have gelled at all this year, I'm not sure why. Going to Columbia is a problem but we stand a good chance.

    I hope it doesn't come down to ST but it could.

    I hope you're right, but UGA's QB Murray is still scary good.

    We've played them with banged up QB's and hurt players the past few years and basically beat ourselves with a combined 10 turnovers in the last two games. Injuries, as some have pointed out, are part of the game. UGA will just have to deal with them when they play UF just like the Gators did when they played them.

    I'd give UGA like 55% equity vs us with Gurley and 45% if he was out (assuming Marshall is out). Our kicking issues are costing us a good 5% right now.

    Luckily, our RZ efficiency has basically sky-rocketed and our offense is becoming more balanced.

    Well that's fine but I guess I am primarily referring to their kicking game versus ours. Hardin has obviously struggled, while UGA's kicker nailed a 50-something yarder today plus a clutch-kick in OT to win. I'm pretty sure I know which kicker I'd rather have.

    problem with Murray, besides him being really good. When you least expect it he can take off and just kill you with his legs. But to almost lose to Tenn...there is hope.

    The good news is we don't even have to beat LSU to be alive in the SEC east as long as we beat South Caroline and Missiouri going into the Georgia

    2.8 yards a carry with 41 carries is not going to get it done......whether we are the "best team in the east" or not

    They had Gurley and Marshal healthy last year and we still almost beat them.

    This year we beat them with or without Gurley and Marshal.
