I'm back -- sort of

Wow. I haven't posted here since March. I would have posted more often, but I forgot my password.

Looking forward to football season. Contrary to predictions that the Tigers will finish in the middle of the pack in the ACC, I predict a second- or third-place finish. I'm optimistic because, while we don't have an overwhelming amount of experience returning, we do have a lot of talent. Those excellent recruiting classes Coach Bowden's staff has brought in over the past couple of years will begin to reap dividends. I think the defense will be much improved (it couldn't get worse after last year's fiasco).

On a personal note, my father and I will be at the season opener in Athens, Ga., on Aug. 31. I can't wait. I haven't been to Athens since the 1980s, well before the Dawgs began the massive renovation and expansion of Sanford Stadium. Win or lose, it should be fun. (Just so long as we don't get killed.)
