So, Arky by that much?  Maybe UC loses its team?  Arky is a good team but ...

I think the Utes will prevail, by not by much in the Swampy area.

UGA might not cover (duh).

I'd probably take FSU and the points, but I know little of either team.

Florida was like 50th in recruiting when Mullen left.  Up to 26th now, and in the top 20 in average star rating.

Still some big fish out there, too.

But we're still like 19th in the SEC recruiting rankings, so that's fun.
This gal expects a rough beginning. Maybe so, but IMO you have a home run hire. I would liked to have seen him next at Alabama.


Billy Napier – FLORIDA
First four games: Utah, Kentucky, USF, at Tennessee
Billy Napier played quarterback at FCS Furman before starting his coaching journey, a 15-year odyssey that made stops as an offensive assistant at Clemson, Alabama, Colorado State, and Arizona State. He landed the head job at Louisiana in 2018, leading the Cajuns to a 40-12 mark in four seasons that included back-to-back Sun Belt titles and Top 25 finishes. He takes over the reins in Gainesville from Dan Mullen, who was dismissed after posting a 34-15 record from 2018-21.
Napier is one of only three new head coaches who will face three Power clubs in their first four outings. And while Utah, Kentucky, and Tennessee might not look like the Murderers’ Row of September – the Utes and Wildcats combined for a 20-7 record last year and both earned mention (Utah at No. 7 and Kentucky at No. 21) in ESPN’s Way-Too-Early Top 25 for 2022.
Though Billy Napier is a solid hire, he might be in for a rough September. If he does manage to engineer a 3-1 or 4-0 start, he likely won’t get the credit he deserves. He’ll be expected to win, even if it’s an uphill battle that doesn’t look like one.

FSU wins SU. FSU has a TARP (Transfers And Returning Production) # of +9 (4 O /5 D). LSU's is -7 ( -4.5 O / -2.5 D).
