Whispers in a very loud whisper voice...........this team is better than last years. Significantly better. And that is after losing our best and only true offensive threat.
Also, don't forget about Nick King. He was expected to be a significant contributor this season only to get season-ending sick just as the year got started.
I'll be disappointed if we tank down the stretch, but overall this season's not been too far off from what could be reasonably expected. We're sitting tied for 4th in conference at 8-5 with 5 very winnable games to play and a possible double bye for the SEC tournament. If you'd offered me that sight unseen to start the year, my only question would have been where do I sign.
