Re: 2007 SEC Football Thread
 
barry,

Making a bowl - any bowl - would be an achievement for Vandy and also hardly qualify for "Vandy hype." A .500 record would be an achievement, and hardly qualify as "Vandy hype."

I don't put much stock in the argument that without Cutler, the team can't do anything. My buddy says that 1) Nickson is really good, 2) the O-line is far and away the best they've had in a long time, and 3) everyone on the team hated Cutler like fire, and I believe him on all counts. If the QB position is worse this year than Cutler's senior year - and with Nickson unproven and Cutler an NFL starter, that's hard to argue - virtually every other position is better, including those positions that make life easier on a QB. So I don't think its unreasonable to hope that Vandy can actually play past the regular season this year. That's both something for Vandy fans to be excited about and something that's outside of what you'd typically call "hype."

On a somewhat related note, Vandy season tickets are going like hotcakes this year because all the demand from traveling Bama fans has caused tickets for that game alone to go for more than season tickets. Funny stuff.

ESPN: "Arkansas.... 4-4 in the SEC. No championship game for them this year."

I'd feel worse about that statement, but then with Houston Nutt at the helm for another year even with DMac in the backfield I don't hold much hope either.

Look for Arkansas' offense to remain Nutt-tacular, i.e.

Run.
Run.
Pass.
Punt.

Considering we have no QB threat, I hope DMac takes at least 50% of the snaps himself this year.

Going to be an interesting year for us (Auburn)... offensive line needs to come together fast so we can keep Cox healthy

Uh yea man, hopefully he just stays healthy. Urban says he's a 10x better WR this year than last year. We have so many weapons, if the D manages to be OK we could win every game.

RDH-

I understand that going to a bowl would be huge for Vandy and I meant hype relatively, like hype in this thread ("watch out for Vandy" yada yada). Here's their schedule, pick the 6 wins.

Richmond
Alabama
Ole Miss
Eastern Mich
@Auburn
Georgia
@South Carolina
Miami (OH)
@Florida
Kentucky
@Tennessee
Wake Forest

Richmond, Ole Miss, Eastern Michigan, Miami

I think they win 2 of UGA,UK,WF,Bama.
It's a tough schedule though so certainly no lock.

I'm not sure what to expect. Maybe we will see some Wildcat formation with D-Mac. I expect to be 4-4 if the passing game is not in sync. Dick sucks, Monk is hurt and won't play for Troy, Kentucky, and possibly Alabama. Defense is iffy too with some of these guys we lost.

Nutt gets a lot of bad press and negative attention here but I think it's unwarranted. Mustain sucked ass and was really overrated. Dick wasn't getting the job done most of the year so of course we are going to run the hell out of them with D-Mac.
