Obviously UF was banged up last year, and I expect them to improve. But still....losing to an FCS school is pathetic considering how well UF recruits. I haven't been impressed with Muschamp or Driskel. I guess we'll see. But going from 4-8 to winning the East would be a hell of a jump, especially with that schedule.
You do realize that we tied for the East in 2012 with a similar schedule, right? UGA went to Atlanta because our lone SEC loss was to them.
And how could anyone be impressed with Driskel; he's only played 1 full season and learned 3 different offenses.
The only reason for optimism as far as Gator fans are concerned is he's about to finally play in an offense familiar to him and suited to his game... hopefully he'll stay healthy too.

Hey, Gators are just as guilty as we are of overzealous expectations
Since when? Hell, we've been more critical of our own program than our rivals; self-deprecating to the extreme. But don't expect us to just ignore the facts from last year either... we ain't making
That said, comparing Dawg fans expectations when they have absolutely no recent reason to think Natty, to Gator fans, whose team has won 3 since UGA last won 1, is hilarious.

Its because they feel they have a "common enemy" aka Georgia. USCe and Georgia are each others biggest competition in the East and UF is struggling to stay relevant by waving their BCS balls around from 5 years ago. That and they are finally realizing they dont have the mental dominance of us in Jacksonville anymore. We are winning there now.
Did you really just compare a UF Natty 5 years ago to UGA last winning one 34 years ago; and try to make some correlation about reasonable expectations?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but UF ain't going away; y'all are talking more yak about a 3-game winning streak than we did about our 7-game streak, the 6-game streak a game later, and the 2 and 3-game streaks after those.
In fact, Richt has been so bad against UF that it's taken this 3-game streak for him to get to 5-8.
