    We need to be real here. If we came come out of the first five games at 4 – 1 ….. I believe we can go 9 – 3 for the year and get a bit better bowl than last year. The losses being Bama, LSU, and A&M.
    I’ll admit I was leery about Texas …. but wow what a win !!! I think 9 – 3 is actually doable.
    Oh, almost forgot WAR EAGLE !!!!!!!!!!
