Re: Why didn't Wes Green play against A&M?

The part about "wanting to red shirt against that offense" can be understood as "he saw the offense and decided to red shirt". That was my initial interpretation of your statement...I figured someone...

Re: Recruiting Question

After three seasons where we won 11 games, because of one loss, we haven't been recruiting well enough? After three seasons where we won 11 games, because of one loss, our coaches are no good?

Re: Looking ahead to UGA

The outcome of the ECU game has nothing to do with fans discussing a different game...the team is who needs to not look ahead to UGA. I've never seen a team lose due to what fans were discussing on a...

Yep, AFTER this recruiting class. I doubt we would've done the 3-4 if we had gotten those recruits in. I wonder how much of it is that we can only afford to have 3 down instead of 4...is the...

Which freshman DB's did they have? I just remember Watts with the big hit on the would be touchdown.

I'm seriously wondering how much of an effect not getting our freshman DB's in and started in...

Re: Plugging Holes W/Recruiting

Yup. I figure though that he had a better group around him. I don't think it was a matter of picking on one freshman, it seems like just a matter of picking on the secondary as a whole.

Re: Is anybody still optimistic?

This. I'm cautiously optomistic about the O. The lack of a run game (that's on the OL) worries me. As an outsider looking in, I thought run blocking was supposed to be easier than pass blocking. ...

Re: Is anybody still optimistic?

My pride in the institution isn't based on one game, or even one season. My first two years at USC was 1998 and 1999. I met my wife the weekend of a clemson game and we sat through 63-17.

Re: Which is a worse loss to open the season?

I think I like the "rather lose to clemson and win the SEC vs. beat clemson" conundrum better.

Re: 2010 Auburn/FSU beatdowns were the eve of 33-6 run; Did USC...NEED this loss?

Agree.

At best it just reveals to players and the coaches some glaring issues that need to be addressed immediately. It's time for the coaches to earn their play and try to patch together...

Seems like we should address the issue with the game and not go bench the reason it wasn't 52-0.

Re: Plugging Holes W/Recruiting

That's what I figured as well on both points. It takes a real stud of a true freshman DB to come in, grasp the scheme and start. Ideally they'd at most be counted on to contribute but we don't have...

Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

It's based on the hope that we figure out D in the time before UGa in order to be good enough against their new QB who (again, here's the hope) hopefully won't be as good as A&M's was.

ECU has the...

Re: Predict the Season (After Game 1)

I'm hoping for 8-4, wishing for 9-3, praying for 10-2 with a win in lil death valley.

L - Texas A&M
W - East Carolina (could go either way if we don't fix the D)
W - Georgia
W - @ Vanderbilt...

Re: So, Dylan Thompson?

He's no Connor Shaw but he's also no Chris Smelley. It's also pretty clear that there's not a close #2. He's our best option, regardless of opinions. His performance was far from the issue.

Re: So, Dylan Thompson?

The offense had it's issues, but the passing game wasn't one of them. He did what he did without a running game. Not having a running game also made us either score or get off the field faster than...

I think you're right. The gaps in talent reared their ugly head where our weaknesses were, specifically in the secondary and on the DL.

It doesn't explain it all though. Not sure why our OL isn't...

Plugging Holes W/Recruiting

It appears that part of the problem on D is due to recruiting, more specifically timing.

On the DL, we didn't get in the guys we wanted to due to academics.

In the secondary, did we have any...

Re: Jimmies and Joes

They had a great OL, and incredible WR's.

We had a DL patched together and young DBs...didn't the freshman DB's miss some of camp due to the NCAA as well?

No wonder we're recruting JuCo's.
