Our apparent next QB plays un-ranked Virginia.

(2) Bama vs (13) Texas A & M

(7) Auburn vs (4) Georgia in the Lith bowl

What teams and players are we watching closely today?

Obvi who I'm watching but very interested to see if A&M can finally live up the preseason hype that they've yet to do under Jimbo.

Always excited about one of the oldest rivalries in the country.  Big Seth Williams fan, just saw a stat that 71 of his 91 catches in college have resulted in a first or a TD, crazy good, excited to see him vs. some legit CB's.  That said, Bo Nix sucks and UGA will win.

Agreed about Nix, the media seems to love the guy but I do not see a good QB.

Florida is #3?  Surprised by that, but the team has had talent the last few years except QB which you seem to have this year.

I know, he's been a darling since he got there...dont see it.  Athletic and can make plays, sure, not really a good passing QB.   I feel like they made a mistake letting Joey Gatewood transfer.

Mullen has won 10 and 11 games since arriving to Gainesville, best of any new HC and that was with McElwain's recruits.  Now he's got his team, a season OL, loaded at the skillz positions and a very efficient Qb.  Not surprised they're this high, this is his best team to date.

Trask isnt an overly impressive QB but he has great command of the system and weaponz all over the place.  Extremely efficient, decisive, throws a nice ball.  Honestly, I think we have 2 significantly better talents behind him in Jones and Jefferson.  Both can run the full Mullen playbook that Trask cant because he's a limited athlete.  That said, I love Trask.  His story is awesome.  He's the best Qb we've had since Tebow which unfortunately isnt saying much but he's a great kid and he looks much more comfortable this year.

Army is at Miche today for the big match against powerhouse Abiline Christian.

The Black Knights were actually in the top 25 before their loss to Cincinnati. I missed that one so I guess Burrows had a good day (he-he)

One of the good things about Army's new schedule this year is learning about schools you never heard of before. Maybe this Abiline Christian match is just a tuneup before the classic Mercer game later this season.

@Lith - was it you that told me about Georgia fans calling it "3rd and Grantham?" - during his tenure?

 

Probably was me.  Probably after the game in Jacksonville last year where we converted a bunch of 3rd land longs.  Not getting off the field on 3rd down was a staple of Grantham's tenure as UGA DC.

Yup.  It absolutely is a thing.  Your offense looks great this year, and they may need to be.  We won a lot of 44-38 type games in the Richt - Grantham era.

Haha I just texted my boy, “when did we become a Big 12 team”?

We are breaking in a lot on D this year.  I think they will settle down and in and get better but yeah, it’s looking like we will be on a lot of shoot outs this year.

And we are the exact opposite.  Strong defense should keep us in most games, but with so many new faces on offense, I am not sure we are going to be able to put up enough points to win games in the 30s.  And there are always a couple of games a year where you need to put up points to beat good teams. 

I guess that is one thing that will make the East so interesting this year.  Everyone has us as the top 2 in the East, but our teams are polar opposites.

Georgia has a good CB whose name escapes me.  I would start paying attention to CBs a lot.  I'd put a lot of money on us going CB with one of our 1st 3 picks.

We have two solid draftable CBs.  Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell.  Stokes is probaby the guy you are thinking of but both should be in R1-R2 conversations when the draft rolls around.

Go Georgia! Let’s get the win tonight @Lith

Hope so.  Tongiht we should have a much better idea of what the team is for this season.  Not too worried about the defense, but I have no idea yet what we are ofensively.  I am guessing Bennett gets the start, but at least Daniels was cleared this week and should be available if needed.
