It's that simple. A&M's Top 5 classes are beating our butts. I don't think there is anything schematically that can be done right now.

But as Coach Spurrier says, gotta keep playing.

They are just quicker, faster, and stronger than we are.

And their OL is for real. Ours just looks good on paper.

We need some difference makers and the fish that got away might be the answer here. Jhaustin Thomas, wideman, Dante sawyer. We need someone to get to the qb and English is doing nothing.

We screwed the pooch when we KNOWINGLY recruited Wideman, Sawyer, and Thomas knowing they ALL had academic work to do.

Regarding DB's, we haven't recruited any contributors to date since 2012. We then NEEDED guys to come in and contribute so we recruited 3 corners who are going to be good but not ready to contribute either physically or mentally. None of them guys are in the same class as Swearinger, Gilmore, Holloman etc. Those guys were ready to play, these new guys aren't.

It is VERY possible we see a completely new D-Line next year.

Our defensive linemen look like pre brad lawing era. That is not fixable at half time.

Lack of talent on D and I question the coaching staff on that side if the ball.

If you are talking about this game, you're right.

No it's not that simple beyond that. A&M and Manziel for one beat an Alabama team with talent as beyond theirs as A&M's appears to be beyond ours.

I've made the point several times here, but no one wants to hear it. Even for a pro set offense, Spurrier's isn't exactly the best implementation of it. Petrino's may have a lot of similarities, but it sure seems different.

The man is not serious about running the ball. We line up in I formation sometimes, but it just isn't his thing. It's kind of like teams take from their coaches. If Holtz were coaching this team with the same talent we would have a lot more rushing yards.

I'll make another statement: if we had Gus Malzahn coaching we would have a much more effective offense.

The past few years we have had a kluge system using the read option and qb's who would run (or were allowed to run). Without that, we don't have a running game unless we are playing a team like Central Florida that is severely undersized on the line.

Spurrier's offense just doesn't work if you don't hit passes to set up draws. He also won't take a drastic step like using the wildcat heavily, and by that I mean 30 or 40% of the plays. He could also do something like move Adams or Anderson to wide receiver. A&M's offense tonight shows just how valuable tall receivers are, but it won't happen. We have really missed Alshon since he left.

You could give this team to a run oriented coach, and he could get vastly different performance with the same talent.

Anyway, we are playing an excellent offensive team, but the offense isn't doing the defense any favors.

I'm going to make a prediction. If you guys get your wish, Connor Mitch will play this year. He'll do some good things, and he will look confused as all get out a lot of times.

And it won't change much in the next few years, it'll be the same thing over and over.

As far as the rest of the season? We usually improve a lot by the second game. The past few years the defense has been horrid early in the year, and improved a lot over the course of the season.

We've had an excellent record the past few years in the SEC, but a lot of those games, even against the also rans were pretty close affairs.

With no running game, and no qb to make plays with his legs when things break down, we lose more of those close games.

No idea what we will actually see, but Florida's collapse of last year could be duplicated here.

Right now I'd say we are not beating Auburn. Depending on what we see from Georgia this week, we might see A&M part II. Missouri, Tennesse, even Vandy and Kentucky could be possible losses. Florida could be a surprise team this year (depends on what they do on offense).

Then there is Clemson.

Like I said, no idea. But if things go against them early, and they lose a few to start, things could steamroll. Because we weren't beating those teams by a lot when we did win, with a few exceptions like Georgia two years ago.

Our o line cannot block, the d line hasn't gotten a push all game, corners are absolutely lost. It's sooo bad for us right now. I'll be happy with 9 wins this year.
