The meat of it is just after Florida, when we play Missouri on the road and then USC at home.  If we don't win both of those, its a lot harcer to get to 6 wins.  Well, we could beat USC, lose to Missouri and then beat UK in November, but best to nail down both of those games relatively early.

We do close with two easy games, so if we can just get to mid-November with four wins we go bowling.

I am hoping we go on a two game win streak following the UF game.  Hopefully the team is playing as a team by then.

On a side note, South Alabama, who we play in November, edged Bowling Green by a FG 22-19 this past weekend. So we definitely should handle them. 

I was marking Vandy as a sure thing, but they did "upset" Colorado State this past weekend after losing badly to ETSU (!) in week one.  Co State is a bad team, but now let's see how Vandy does in their next few games.  Still think we win, but there is a lot of football left to play.

Ky looks good, but they have wilted against other comparable UT teams. I consider it a possible loss. Not a "likely" loss at this point.

Missouri, usc, and uk are all straight toss ups imo. Pitt is probably as good as 2 of the 3, and maybe all three.

I think Hooker can play. More touch, and more elusive. Could be wrong. Give him tech as a fine tuner & let's ride!

I just worry about our play in the trenches on both sides of the ball against SEC foes. Plus depth is not our friend.
