Yes. But..just a few historical reminders:

2012 USC blasts UGA 35-7. UGA responds...and comes within 4 yards of SEC Championship vs Bama (who did win the NC).
2012 Florida bullies Florida State all over the field. FSU responds...and wins NC the next year.
1996 Florida- with Spurrier- get MANHANDLED by Florida State. By season's end....Florida beats FSU in the Sugar Bowl to win it all.
2013 Missouri- Got punked in 2012 with a season full of SEC beatdowns. Those guys woke up and responded by winning the East in 2014.
2008- Alabama takes a beating from Utah in their bowl, humiliated. They win the NC the next season.
2007- LSU loses to Kentucky. They finish as National Champions.
1999- Va Tech is hot-stuff with Vick. FSU blasts them. They respond by winning multiple ACC championships over the next decade.

My point is just that if we are a program that will maintain top-25 level success....these occasional wake-up calls are just reality. Its what keeps 4-star caliber players working as hard as a walk-on every day.
