In a word, kinda.
We needed a lucky fumble and a field goal to beat Vanderbilt yesterday, but we did beat them. We need a few miracles to win the SEC, but really don't deserve to. We're rebuilding. It happens.
But let's look at the season a minute. Going in I predicted 8-4 with losses to South Carolina (they were due), Tennessee (they know how to run), Auburn (ditto) and Georgia tech (begrudgingly, ditto).
I think I'll change that now to 8-4 with a prayer, a win over tech and a loss to Kentucky.
Yes, that means I think we'll beat Florida. I'm ridiculous.
But the point is - we're about where I thought we'd be, though I didn't expect to get embarrassed in Knoxville. And you can't judge a team too harshly for living up to your expectations.
So let's see what happens. And somebody tell me: What's wrong with Caleb King?
We're down to one scholarship tailback (Moreno) and we're talking about using former walk-on Jason Johnson and a couple of second-string fullbacks at running back instead of burning the red shirt on our supposedly all-star freshman who's going to have to be ready to play next year because of numbers. There's a reason for that.
