Does playing a conference only schedule reduce chances of catching Wuhan virus? Every university across the nation where all the programs share the revenue from college football is looking at a huge financial loss this season. Please show me the math where SEC schools UGA, UF, and USCe that have ACC rivals and cross state lines to play conference games are are a greater risk playing an in state non-conference rival.
It would be nice if predictions about the Rebels could translate into consistent play. We have a few good years and then shoot ourselves in the foot with acts of stupidity (NCAA sanctions). We have some great offensive talent in Plumlee, Ealy, and Moore. The question is will the defense keep the opponent out of the end zone.
The first conversation in history that required a Gaelic-Cajun translator!
Many of the problems can be traced to a lack of discipline. Penalties that kill drives or give the opponent a first down. The latest example was the offensive holding call in the 4th quarter against Auburn. Erased a great play that would have put us in a chance to win. The teams that make the fewest mistakes win. Watch Alabama and LSU. They make few mistakes.
The same points being a pivotal game could be made for us as well. Why Luke pulled Plumlee in the 2nd half against Mizzou is a question even the Mizzou announcers asked during the game. We have talent but we make too many mistakes. Top tier teams don't make the mistakes that cost them games. When those teams make mistakes, they lose. Just ask UGA.
Yes there are rewards when the kid who turns their life around because a good head coach or assistant coach took the time to be a mentor but how many people would take a job where your job security depends upon the maturity, on the field performance, and off the field behavior of highly competitive (and in many cases immature) 18, 19, and 20 year olds? Almost gets to the point where a head coach dreads picking up the paper or turning on the news.
UGA is a running back factory.
Galen Hall ring a bell? Every team in the SEC has been on probation or received sanctions at one time or another.
Remember Will Redmond, wide receivers coach Angelo Mirando, or Denton Herring? People who live in glass houses...
