Always am for the Owls! Ya think Coach P. and staff are not gonne motivate this bunch this year?
Sadly we got the exact same lack of respect last year and the lame duck staff, to me, showed they just did not care to put in the effort to motivate and overcome.
Bet ya that don't happen this year! Go Owls!

+1!

Forget Obama & Romney, GeorgiaOwl for President!

;D

As for your assertion…….

There is no way Pelini is going to let things like "the guys just quit" be said about his players on his watch. Me thinks we would have a roster of 20 guys finish the year and limp across the finish line than to let dead weight stick around.

But we deserve it. Even with a stronger recruiting class than ever before, everyone knows that we went 1-11 last year, we have a new coach, we're converting to a whole new offense and we have a question mark at our most important position: quarterback.

We've given them no reason to respect or fear us yet.

All very true, this team and Coaches have to prove themselves to earn the respect - AND THEY WILL! Remember what a joke FIU was just a few years ago - much worse than our Owls were last year if you can beleive that!

I boldly predict 5 wins and middle of the pack finish (something around 5th), and a whole lot of buzz going into 2013...

I dunno, to get so close to Bowl consideration and then be left out due to failing to meet the mark by one column notch might be more of a letdown than 4 wins…….
