Default Step back from the ledge

So are you guys just giving up all hope already? Yes it was ugly yes we need work but it was still the first game. We have a whole season ahead. Now the 3-4 I've never been a big fan. If you're gonna have 3 down lineman they need to be studs and have a big man like Terrance Cody in the middle like Bama had. Idk I guess Ward thought he was gonna use speed on the outside but I guess he forgot that that is probably gonna be one of the top O-Line's in the Nation. Their tackle will be one of the top picks in the draft this year. I think we have the skill set the scheme just isn't right for what we have up front.

We're going to be a team with basically their entire first string injured who leans on the strength of an elite defense to make up for their atrocious offense?

I must be missing something.

I am worried about the effect of such a horrible defensive showing on our programs perception. I thought we were past this crap most of our recruits are coming from out of state now this could damage our brand and surely help our rivals who we all know already negatively recruit our targets against us.

Yes that 2012 D was better at every single position except maybe Will (Moore). And had playmakers at DE and Spur

DT is not a weakness either I don't think.

I'm not on a ledge but the sooner each of you accept a 7-5 maybe 8-4 type season the better it will be for you on game days.

We just don't have the talent to contend for an SEC championship

I wouldn't say he's a weakness, but I don't think it's very likely that we'll be opening up the passing game and putting up video game numbers like people were anticipating.

I think he meant defensive tackle, since we were talking about defense.

Either way, I'll step away from the ledge when we show we can win some games and actually stop someone. Unfortunately, I don't see either one happening anytime soon.
