I'm trying hard not to judge too much on a Vanderbilt game, or any of our other early season games for that matter. But, damn, that looked like a complete team last night.
The offense looked like it was entering juggernaut territory. The defense showed more than enough nasty to beat Vanderbilt. We get our last few starters back, and I expect we'll be solid favorites for every game between now and the SEC Title game.
I don't know that I've ever seen a stronger early season performance from The Dawgs, with the possible exception of 2003, when we opened so strong against Clemson and South Carolina, only to fall short against LSU.
I'd still like to feel great about the offensive line. Freshmen kickers aren't ideal. I anticipate development along the defensive line to further compliment Jarvis Jones.
But we seem to have a playmaker, or playmakers, at every level of the defense. We have a strong and balanced offense and an experience quarterback. I believe, for the first time in a long time, my expectations for the Bulldogs were too low, and I'm very impressed with what we've seen so far.
