What if we are better?

What if we have a better season this year than the previous ones under Jones? It's a thought I have been rattling around in my head since spring practice. Does it mean new coaches are doing their jobs better than previous? Are new schemes better? Was injuries last season really the downfall of last season? Is it just the byproduct of young players getting p.t. last year? I personally think we will be better. So what does it mean if we are?

P.s. Long time observer, first thread

If true, this could be Armageddon for NegaVols!

Only 3 SEC teams have won 9 games EACH of the previous 2 seasons.

AL
FL
And Tennessee!

Just saying.

I'll be happy with 9-10 wins this season. Anything less than that, we have some issues whether it's Butch, the assistants, or a combination of both. I do think we have enough talent to win the East this year but that's if we stay healthy and Butch does his job right.

Well I would say that last season we had the talent and experience with our roster to win the east and be in SEC champ. That didn't happen. Injuries happen all the time. I think last year it was more on our coaching staff.

I'd expect we will overachieve our expectations based on how new our staff will be. We will have kids with little experience but they will be more determine to work their tails off.

The best analogy is when you get a new job. You always want to do your very best early on, but then you can get burnt out. New roster with new staff will equal more energy and lots of wins

Don't disagree. Said many times ... at this point, headed to year 5, it's his program and whatever happens going forward is on him.

Good or bad.
