It's very clear to me, and has been since week 1 against Miami, that this team is not going to play 4 full quarters of football. That won't work against UGA, even Auburn. You can get away with it against MState, Tenn, even Florida, which seemed like a "wake up call" at the time. Now, nah. Florida isn't great. Athletic, competitive, yes. But not up to where they were last year.
Veteran leadership is just not there. They need that against Auburn, who will be playing in their own "national title game" on November 27. It's that way every year. You always get everything they have, at their place, new head coach, odd year, more on the line for Bama than them, and their own refs. You will need 4 full quarters of solid football. Doesn't have to be perfect, but these drops, these missed tackles, these early starts and errant throws that occasionally show from Bryce, won't suffice against them.
Right now, I'm expecting Bama to manage the rest of the schedule, play UGA at 11-1, and struggle in that game. I'm also kept awake at night with the thought that Bama is going to meet AU at The Pasture, Bama 10-1, Auburn 8-2, and the West on the line. A highly motivated AU team, at their place, is deadly.
