Wait, so you think we're better than A&M right now?

No. I edited my post; forgot those weirdos were in the SEC
I figured they'd be your favorite SEC team with their all male cheerleading squads.
Well here is the thing, back to back 10+ win season then 4-8 .... does anyone REALLY think out of nowhere the talent just disappeared?
Our players went through a lot of crap, uncertainty, coaching change, coaches there knew they were likely not going to be for long, JL Smith knew he wasn't going to be around a long time either...lost some players as is normal each year on top of it.
I just don't buy that our team is REALLY a 4-8 team... everyone is acting like we have been down in the dumps for years... we haven't at all.
TA&M, Ole Miss and Miss State are easily beatable teams, hell even LSU will be down this year they lost like what 11-12 players and pretty good ones? I am not saying we will run out and beat everyone... but we are NOT super far off like some dog house team that has sucked for years.
We have a talented team that needs support and coaching...now they have that again.
6-8 wins is easily doable IMO.
Rutgers was an embarrassing loss for us because we should NEVER lose to a big east team. NEVER. And the only reason we did is because Bobby took his blonde for a ride.
A and M Lost some pretty good players and Johnny Rotten isn't shocking anybody this year. Without him they are a 5-6 win team last year. They will be again in the not to distant future.
Ole Miss was 6-6 because once again Bobby took his blonde for a ride. That's the ONLY reason why they were 6-6. And Mississppi State? Please.
Now South Carolina is as talented as we are. And I do mean AS TALENTED. Not more. And they are always on the downswing when we play them and we get them AT HOME.

Oh and let's not forget that Bielema has never had a losing record as a head coach.
Not saying it's impossible for him to have one now but believe me, that psychological fact will play in everybody's minds on the hill.
Yeah the problem is, he is on the team next year and that is what this is about ...... next year, not the "not to distant future".
Aggy will roll our ass this year dude, just like they did last year. They will roll almost everyone's ass this year. They have a bunch of talent on that squad my friend. Mike Sherman couldn't coach them but he knew talent and could evaluate with the best of them and he set them up with talent for a long time.
I struggle to see how we could win more then 6. I right now have so many questions.
I'm with you. I'm going with 9-4 after the bowl. I think a better defense and a coaching staff that makes the team be discipline on both sides of the ball will make a huge difference
You are real high on A&M way over rating them. We will give them all they can handle and maybe beat them at RRS. They aren't going to roll us next year period. That was all about Smith and his band of idiots.
Johnny football is going to get hit a lot more next season and a guy that runs like he does won't make it through next season without injury.
Dude. They beat Bama... in Bama... a team we lost to at home 52-0. Aggy is a pretty decent team. They obviously recruit better than us based on the info above ITT. Sherman could evaluate talent, but he couldn't coach it. This is a very similar situation Orgeron and Nutt at Ole Miss... except for the fact that Nutt couldn't recruit and Sumlin can. Until Manziel leaves Aggyland or until we get a defense they will kill us every time.
I don't see how people can be expecting 7, 8, and even 9 wins with this team that we currently have. We looked atrocious against some very average teams last season; it didn't matter who was coaching. JLS could take some of the blame, but you can also blame Bobby P for his lack of people skills and recruiting. We're just not a good team.
Last year means nothing when next year comes. You are not giving Smith enough credit for last year.what about Ole Miss beating their ass all over the field and their coach going for 4th downs to give A&M the win. . They will lose 3-4 games! Johnny party boy will not go through next season without getting dinged up.
