  • Joel feels __________ about this game this week: THE SAME. If I had ever heard of the Morgan State Bears, I'd be more worried, but for all I know, it's a team of actual bears. Which could be dangerous, of course, but I'm guessing they'd lose on penalties alone.

  • Joel feels __________ about this game this week: BETTER, ACTUALLY. Be sure to watch the drive chart on that one. They could have easily lost right there at the end.

    • Week 2: Lost to Northwestern, 23-13.

    • Joel feels __________ about this game this week: THE SAME WAY HE FELT PRESEASON. Put the Blue Hose in the same category as the Morgan State Bears except that I have heard of them. But the reason I remember them is "Blue Hose."

    Kentucky Wildcats

    • Week 1: Lost to Louisville, 32-14.
    • Week 2: Beat Kent State, 47-14.
    • Week 3: Lost to Western Kentucky in OT, 32-31.

    • Joel feels __________ about this game this week: BETTER. The drive chart is a little confused about overtime in this one, but man, that is painful to watch. They were completely ineffective. Against Western Kentucky. Then they came back to tie. Only to lose in overtime. At home.

    Conclusion after Week One

    Much to my surprise, I'm not really changing any of my preseason predictions after getting Florida wrong. Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina are still down as almost certain losses. The questionable games are Mississippi State and Missouri, and although I'm not feeling quite as good about our own team, neither neither the Bulldogs nor the Tigers did anything this week to make me more wary of them.
