    We play for an SEC title next year.

    Really is time to start thinking this way again.

    2nd longest P5 winning streak in the nation. Air Force, FAU, and LSU all have longer. And technically tied at 2nd longest P5, if Notre Dame is considered a P5. App State is also at 6 games in a row.

    I haven't really looked at UF and UGA, but I don't think they'll completely fall off a cliff next season. I can't see us making that big a leap unless Bailey is just a freshman phenom.

    Just say "GBFO" and leave the rest of that crap alone. Sheesh.

    What do we think of the wide receivers and the passing game next year? I know we’ve got some speed. Without big dudes that could get contested passes... what would 2019 have looked like? I would think pretty damn bad. We just lost probably one of the best duos (maybe the best - topic for another thread) we’ve ever had at getting those.

    Certainly will be some growing pains but I think the drop-off won't be as drastic as it looks on paper. Palmer showed a lot of flashes at the end of the year. Brandon Johnson took a RS and will be back as a senior. Gibbs will be eligible. Keyton has big potential and we're bringing in speed we've seriously lacked.

    I don't think speed matters that much with JG. It's great to burn your cover by 6 yards, but JG will underthrow you by 8.

    Mandel has the Vols a bit higher in this poll.

    That's why I have predictions in quotes, I'm guessing(more hoping) that it is the case.

    He probably enjoys watching folks get all redneck mad at the posts, too.

    Too bad he doesn't have a bigger audience like at the other place, so many would lose their shit.

    Hopefully he isn't another... memory failing me... big wide receiver we had... I think Dooley originally recruited him and Butch moved him to TE. He would always get beat out by DBs like a foot shorter than him.
