We just don't have the depth and the defense to go 11-1 in this conference. 8-4 is what I've been saying all along and its a reasonable step forward.

I find myself agreeing with fade more and more these days. 8-4 is the over/under IMO. 9-3 being reasonable. We have made some significant improvements and that would be a good improvement in Ws.
Here is my optimism this year. I think we beat Bama. Its a feeling, not based in logic. I am not ready to remove all emotion from my season outlook, and this is what my gut tells me. We beat Bama and probably lose a game we shouldn't. I also don't see it being impossible to beat UGA or USCe, but I don't have them as wins in my predictions
