Building Confidence

Well, that was quite the big win between the hedges yesterday and it feels like it's a continuation of a general trend that's been building since the bye week. The defense suffocated Florida in the second half and we did enough to win, that win gave us a little pep in our step, a little extra confidence in ourselves and our game plans. We have since then dispatched New Mexico State and Auburn with extreme prejudice, both games already being decided by the half. I think the well placed bye gave us a rest at the perfect time and the win over Florida gave us the mental push we needed to actually benefit from everything we've invested in the program this season. If play like this carries into next week against Kentucky, we should have no trouble locking-up the SEC East and cruising into Atlanta on a nine-game streak the next weekend. As for yesterday's game itself, there's not much to say, so I'll just leave you with this screen-grab of the box score from ESPN:


  1. If head-to-head-to-head matchups are any indication, UGA has a shot against LSU (assuming they make it to the SECCG). The Dawgs manhandled Auburn as thoroughly as the Bengal Tigers did. That championship game may be more interesting than some people first thought.

  2. I'm starting to think the same thing...of course, it's just when you start to feel good about things that the rug gets pulled out from under you.
