corchjay 5,311 Posted January 16, 2015 Share Posted January 16, 2015 I've looked through the threads on the board and seen a lot of information about 2015 and rankings and the sign of respect that we are getting now nationally. I'm happy about that. Really I am. BUT... a little perspective. We have a 4 game losing streak going now against power 5 conference teams. It could very easily be at 7 instead of 4 if USCjr finds a way to score right at the end of the game and the Ole Miss receiver doesn't fumble going into the endzone. Not saying we wouldn't have taken the ball after the score and gone down to win but we would have been in a bad place. Also, we have lost our starting QB, RB, and a top draft pick WR. Our special teams were below average at best last year with the exception of FG kicking and punt return. The rest were horrible. My thoughts going forward for next year... We better find some leadership on this team, accountability, and desire again (edge as CGM calls it). We need to find our 5 best OL and keep them there unless injury occurs. Shore up special teams. Find a more complex route tree for our receivers. Our passing routes are very basic and if Jeremy is going to sling it around 35-40 times a game our routes better become a little more complex. Stop the run on defense. We have to be able to win the line of scrimmage. We have 4 and 5 stars all over the front 7. It's time to play like it, regardless of how the back end plays. And absolutely stop getting blown out by our 2 big rivals. So sick of getting beat by UGA... and losing by more then a TD to the tide.
