I certainly do not remember a more daunting season opener than to be breaking in a new quarterback on the road. We should know all we need to know about the "Ginger Assasin" by the time we hit the Arkansas line on the way home from Stillwater. Expect him to do what coaches do, get the ball into the hands of his play makers.
No offense to Tripp Chandler, but tight end has not been a strength in recent years. The coaches appeared to have addressed this shortcoming with excellent recruiting.
So fear not Bulldawg Nation. 2009 promises to have the Dawg's back in the thick of the SEC race. We even have one more orange clad opponent on the schedule, and nothing makes your red pants look better than to stand next to someone wearing an orange.
This is the game we love. We pour our heart and sole into these young men, living through their successes and dying with their failures.
