Well, we played a good quarter and a half.  The end of the second quarter and the entire third quarter were brutal.  Our D held up for a while.  Hopefully we can regroup and take care of Ole Miss.  They gave the Pigs a good game today.

Stupid Penalties killed us, it really opened the flood gates and then it was over. Here's how I see the rest of our season shaking out.

vs Ole Miss: W 37-20
vs Pushover U: W 109573-0
at UGA: W (Maybe) 24-20
vs Alabama: L 35-24 *Pukes in mouth*
Bowl Game: Chick-Fil-A Bowl vs Florida State

What happened to Reed?  He had a good play, hit out of bounds, and didn't see him again.

Re-injured?

Fairly certain, even without the penalties we'd have stunk it up.

Secondary getting beaten on the same pass twice was terrible.

We were playing like a young team stepping into Death Valley.  I expected a loss, but not one that bad

We didn't do anything too terrible outside of too many PF penalties...we just got our asses handed to us by the top team in the land.  WDE!

The only reason a loss like this sucks as bad as it does is because we've seen such enormous success throughout the history of this program that this just doesn't happen. So, let's be grateful that this is a rare feeling for us, War Eagle!

Last time we lost this bad was to bama in 2008 if I'm not mistaken.

At least back then we might have had a legitimate excuse.

We don't need excuses. We were outplayed by better athletes today. But once these guys grow up a bit we aren't likely to be outplayed much in the next two years. We lost to the #1 team in the country and guess what, every other team in the country is likely to lose to them as well, hence the #1 ranking. Calm down a bit.

Did we have more starters injured and fewer upperclassmen in 2008?  I can't remember.

I can't just put it on lack of experience or uppercalssmen.  I thought we go outcoached a bit too.  We know what we have by now, and it seems we are still trying to do certain things we are not capable of doing. For a time there, I thought they were reading our offensive play calling (maybe those cards and numbers).  Certainly not th reason we lost, buon the pick six, that guy faked in then ran straight to the pass.  We had this issue for a period last year, didn't we?

I don't know about continuing to stink it up, But I think it would have been a different game.  A 10-7 type score at halftime would have been manageable.  Like we've said, the penalties set the defense on their heels, then coverage broke down.  Probably still get beat, just not that bad.

I don't think coaching schemes had much to do with today.  We just got beat by a deeper, stronger more experienced team on the road.  It's easy to look like you know the plays when you're winning the battle at the line of scrimmage against our inexperienced offensive line.

Nothing to do but suck it up, learn from it and get better so next year it's our turn.

Not sure about the rest of you but I didn't expect to get blown out of the water like we did.  Missed blocks on the line definitely hurt us.  One that comes to mind is in the first half when Moseley ran a play action and one of the linemen was supposed to swing around and pick up the block from the other side... totally  missed the guy.

The penalties didn't help either.  I did think we would lose.. but this is just a poor performance all around.
