Wow, lots of GC Legends responding here. It is a pretty reasonable measure of our team, as much as any first game can be. We should beat them soundly. If we don’t, it probably means we’re not as good as we think we are. As I have said before, CFB is very much about confidence and emotion. Rivalry games always bring out strong emotions, possibly more in the underdogs, but should be high in both teams. First games are rarely trap games, though they have happened. But I think we all would agree that we are MUCH more confident than UM at this point. You can bravado your way through a couple quarters...maybe, but when things start to go south on one or both sides of the ball, there’s nothing to fall back on. All the emotion in the world won’t save you then. If we put up points in 2 of our first 3 drives, they’ll fold like a cheap suit. I also believe strongly that the mark of a good coach is getting your team to beat the teams you’re supposed to. Easier said than done, especially in the SEC. But, I think we have our man in CDM.
