I'm not worried at all about our defense against VT.  I think our defense will be great against traditional offenses.  The only thing that bothers me about the Navy game is that it showed that we weren't completely disciplined on the field.  In this respect, there's a lot of room for improvement.  Talent-wise, its going to be a fun group to watch.

Very impressed with his play.  I love the fact that he always seems to be in attack mode.  

Actually, watching the .gif it's no wonder why we kept getting beat on the edge.  We have two guys that fail to move and get wide enough in the play.  If Lee doesn't blow it up, the pitch man is open on the edge for another 5 yards at least.

Yea.  My take is:

12 is a lot of points.  While people have been hiding behind "we covered the spread against Navy" we scored a TD when we could have taken a knee.  

VT is a defensive team and our offense is struggling.  Take a new OL and a new QB and I think VT defensive packages will confuse the hell out of us. 

I think points will be at a premium.  In order for us to cover, I think we have to be +2 in turnover margin and get a special teams/defensive TD.

I was very impressed by his play.  Very aggressive player.  Can't wait to watch the game slow down for him.

Please go back and watch the replay.  You will notice that before he makes the second effort, his left forearm touches the ground, making him down by contact.

No offense, but this is a tough way to experience a first game. I implore you to take friends, get there as early as possible and make it an all day experience.  I have found it to be a double edge sword, but the longer you allow to get excited for a game, the sweeter the experience, game, and hopeful victory.

It was a very close game. Closer than the score. Basically, clemson's offense broke down, defense was gassed and UGA had a serious stable of RBs that hit the edge. Clemson isn't a bad team, but they don't have much offense. UGA looked good but they were susceptible to the run with a competent passing attack and will struggle with a good run defense because they are one dimensional as well

Keep in mind that the next poll will reflect the loss of Braxton miller.

I thought the offense was very basic. I thought we should have had our way more today.  I'm not sure how much of our offense today was related to execution and coaching vs. playing the defense that we did. No disrespect to Navy, but they aren't a defensive commodity. I worry that we will struggle on offense against VT.

My money is on LSU. Should have taken UGA too, but I passed on that game.

They will be tough for sure. I think it will be refreshing to play a traditional offense. I worry  about our offense though. 

What worries me is that i thought we lacked a physical brand today. That scares me.
