Tuesday Question

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is . . .

How will the Rebels fare this season?

Predictable, I know. I just want something upon which we can all later look back and laugh. This time last year, I was singing the praises of our cornerbacks. Yeah. I know.

We're going to be releasing our season previews tomorrow, but I'll go ahead and roll mine out right here. Give us your own in the comments.

I think Ole Miss will struggle to find an identity early in the year. Our overhyped offensive line will continue allowing pressure to quickly get to the quarterback. This, combined with questionable downfield accuracy from Barry Brunetti will lead to an inability to adequately use Nick Brassell deep. We're going to be pounding the ball with the run and playing the possession game with our passing. This will allow defenses to continue to load the box. We'll still be able to run against weak teams, but I'm worried that there aren't enough of those on our schedule. I like our backs a lot, but I'm concerned that opposing teams will dare us to beat them with the long pass. From what I've seen, that's not something we can regularly do.

As for the defense, our pass defense should improve, but I think we'll have a lot of trouble stopping the run this year. We just have too much inexperience in our front seven. Next year, on the other hand, our defense should be pretty solid.

Prediction: 5-7 (2-6 SEC)
