    Metchie did a get vaccinated PSA too and sold it 100% more than Slade. He also clarified that it’s KickCovid.com and not GetCovid.com like Slade indicated.

    Bryce is about to really extend that Heisman lead. Elam is elite, then the rest of that back 7 is basically doodoo butter - big day from Jameson or Metchie incoming. Not sure how much we lean on Earle this early, but I think we see him have big games starting around the CS visit.

    Also, I think we really appreciate Drew Sanders after this weekend. There probably isn't an offense that plays into his strengths as much as UF's. He'll set the edge/make a few nice plays on Emory or AR when they try to take off.

    Optimism growing on our end for Nick Smith. Decision expected next week. We are sending basically the whole staff to see him tomorrow.

    I wish they were better, I just don't see it. Think OSU absolutely thumps them even without a defense.

    Good news is if they suck, we have a shot at Singleton or Denis-Sutton.

    Wonder how healthy Richardson is. Apparently dealing with a hamstring injury. UF fans think ultimately he's going to need to beat out Jones if UF is going to win the east . Emory Jones had multiple INTs in the second half. Jones and Richardson were throwing some bombs for TDs in the 1st half of their game against UF and looked dangerous. UF hasn't played anyone so hard to say what they will look like against a good defense.

    None of Richardson's throws against USF were timing throws. They were all bombs with to a WR on a go route. Also he's going to see a little better DB play against us. We are historically susceptible to mobile QBs and against the RPO. If Richardson plays they will run a lot of RPO that results in passes and hopefully our defense is prepared to defend that.

    If Richardson can't play and we only see Emory Jones, then we easily cover 14, and it could be a 30 point blow out.

    Even healthy he would likely play a handful of snaps imo. Mullen isn't dumb, he recognizes the talent but the kid can't read a defense presnap or set blocking assignments most likely.

    He's going to be a nightmare in a year or two. They'll probably win the east once or twice before he leaves if they can get OL talent from the portal or something.

    This will be a good test for our front 7 and run defense. They have probably 3 different backs that get a lot of carries. Also looks like Copeland is their go to receiver this year.

    Richardson threw a horrendous INT in the FAU game where he telegraphed his throw in the end zone. Wouldn't surprise me if we have 2-3 interceptions against their QBs. The difference between our pass rush and then DBs on the back end vs what they saw against FAU and USF is obviously night and day. I think it's going to be a long day for their QBs. I think we cover.

    I honestly think we may win by 25-30, but I don't know how much that tells us. They're not very good this year, at least not yet. Should improve as the season goes on but as of now, they're basically last year's UF - all of production + running threats at QB.

    Or even 9/9.5. First half is usually fair amount more than half the game spread. Tell stric to stick with rocks

    Let me tell you boys a secret. Wait until the first drive and see if Alabama has to punt. If we punt, the live line likely drops to -6.5. Then, have your way with it.
