I guess it's finally time to talk about what I'd like to term "the Disaster in the Dome."
It was miserable. A train wreck.
Anyway, so we got our butts handed to us. Which begs the question "how did this happen?" Well, my father brought up a conspiracy theory last night that I had not thought about.
He asked me "what's the downside of winning the sugar bowl?" I replied that there is never a downside to winning. Period. He responded with "who is the favorite now to win the West next year?" And I replied "Ole Miss." He said "who's the favorite to be 2nd in the West?" I said Alabama, and he replied that it would probably be LSU for how well they handled Georgia Tech. Basically, he was telling me that losing to Utah lowered expectations for the program again, and that they can use it as motivation while breaking in a new quarterback and a new offensive line. Not sure if I'm buying it, but it's a nice theory.
The quarterback race is going to be open next year, but you can bet your ass it'll come down to two guys - Star Jackson and Greg McElroy. AJ McCarron will redshirt while trying to put about 25 more lbs on. And if it was so easy for him to do it, he would have done it already. He still looks scrawny. So G-Mac and S-Jack will be playing it out during the spring this year. Could be an interesting looking offense, if you ask me.
Offensive line's gonna need some rebuilding. With Smitty, Antoine, and Marlong all leaving, that leaves some pretty big holes to fill. That left tackle spot is SOOO important...but maybe not so much if Star is the qb, since he's a lefty.
I'll have a rundown for next season, etc, soon enough. We'll also get into some basketball talk. I don't forsee a good season, but hell, we're 10-3 with a big game tonight at Clemson, so something may come of it.

Justin. You're right.
And I'm an idiot. Not sure what I was thinking. Haha. # posted by Memphis Tider : 2:44 PM
My guess would be McElroy. And we'll be just fine with him. :-) # posted by Memphis Tider : 2:45 PM
