    Well no doubt thay have talent but defense is not that great.I watched them three times and its clear they are dependant on big plays on both sides of the ball.One thing that stood out is how exciting they are among themselves. They have lot of hustle....but don't think they can handle our offense.

    This year's Ole Miss game against Auburn may give some clues as to how they will play us on defense.....

    I saw them vs Vandy and LSU and Bama and yeah offense can score since they have skill folks but to me....they are not all that strong on defense.They do play as a motivated bunch though so we have to show up and play ball but think we take them

    Hate to say it but they look like decent team(I've seen them).we just are not that strong vs decent teams--esp in bowl games.
    They have too many playmakers on both sides of ball unless we can play steadier than before.

    I don't really have a good feeling about this game. Ole Miss is pretty young and they didn't play up to expectations this year. With all the extra bowl practices and time to prepare for our offense, I am not confident. I would just love to see GT come out in the bowl game and just air the ball out with a passing game and throw Ole Miss off completely.

    I like that idea of just coming out and throwing the ball all over the field.

    I'm surprised how much they spread it around in the air. The games I saw it seemed like Treadwell took over when they needed him.

    My fear is that their two very large defensive tackles will spend a lot of time in our backfield, disrupting the mesh point and we will never adjust to it.
    Nkemdiche is big, fast, and strong...and by this point has played an entire season of SEC football, so he has some experience now, too.

    I'd love to be wrong but I think Ole Miss wins this one by a TD.

    This team is going to be tough for Tech. That offense is spreads the ball all over the field and against out secondary it could be a long day.
    Denzel is a freaking animal he plays with a motor all over the field and may have a little fure in his belly to play Tech. The big young DE are also a match up nightmare for our O Line. The one thing is that their D is undisiplined and maybe that opens the door for The Option, even with a month for them to prepare for it.

    Interesting defensive alignment. A bear looking front three with a very wide DE, and two LBs deep off the line, both lined up wide... I hope they play us that way

    Agree. We'll see how Ted Roof coaches and what he can do with what he's got. Maybe he can scheme up something.

    It worked just fine for a half. Maybe just maybe his scheme was sound but his lack of depth caught up with him?

    Please clarify how Roof screwed up. We don't want this forum to become a place for baseless potshots at players or coaches, imo.

    I have watched Nkemdiche play this year and he is a talented player. His strength and ability to push OL around is impressive but his lateral quickness was not. This would persuade running the mesh read (TO) to his side imo.

    Nkemdiche has been playing inside more lately.

    Mississippi is well coached football team.They beat LSU and for a quarter played Bama tough.I would think with three weeks to stop the option they would do the same as others have done..stop the dive hole and make the qb pitch quick.Now they are young on the d side of the ball and do have couple of big and talented lineman but we should be able to get outside..The Vandy game and LSU showed me they can be tough if they get a break.I think we still win but man do we have to play.
