I'm sorry, but am I alone in worrying about Ga So. Of course I know that they are a crappy team at best, but they handed it to UF, and if we don't take them seriously, I am afraid they will do the same to us. They, unlike every other team we play, knows our offense perfectly seeing as how CPJ came from there, and most schools that get enough time to prepare for our offense succeed with only two weeks of practice versus yearlong practice with it.
And how horrible would that be for us to lose. It would be a mockery for the school as being not just 2nd but only 3rd best college team in the state. It would show that CPJ is a fraud for losing to his prior team who has less talent and no longer his playcalling. Our already laughingstock of a program (not trying to be hurtful, just honest) will be embarrassed further. And where would we go from there?
New coach, new system and I believe they lost their best players.
I would have been genuinely worried if we were playing last year's team. Oddly enough, we seem to struggle defending the option at times.
The corollary to "They know our offense!" is the seemingly-ignored fact that we SHOULD know theirs.
We've got better athletes too. And damnit, Paul Johnson alone is worth 21 pts.
A Lt Col who used to work for me says new guy at Southern is good coach but yes we should do well.They are in part going to a spread but will still option out of it.Wish we went to spread and did the same thing.
