That's beside the point.

My point is that there are some knuckleheads on here who think yelling, screaming, throwing stuff, punishing players for performance errors, and generally being an asshole, is good coaching. People like Phil Jackson have shown that positive, calm, rational coaching is probably superior to the type of coaching I just outlined above.

Everybody wants that dude. The fact is, the ball doesn't always bounce the way you want it to.

I've never met a football coach that was positive, calm and rational all the time. But that's just me.

Just run the 4-2-5 on passing downs with a pass rushing specialist subbed in for the end that is the lesser pass rusher of the two ends.

I know one thing. Scrap the 3-4 we clearly don't have the d line personnel to run that scheme. Honestly that was pathetic. We made that kid look like a damn heisman front runner. Ward and the whole staff are on notice after this one...especially sands and adams. Heck the only d coach I saw coaching up on the sidelines was botkin.

He actually said we have some coaching decisions to make on how to get a pass rush. I don't think he was threatening jobs yet.

Easy pitch and catch. No pressure on QB and not a single receiver payed for it in the middle....just poor attempts to tackle at shoulder pad level. They looked like jv high schoolers afraid to lay a hit. Better finds some dudes willing to lay some wood or we are in for a long season.

I don't care what the stat lines look like. I was at the game and that was poor offense against a supposedly poor TAMU defense. We have issues on both sides of the ball. TAMU simply has better players and scheme.

Exactly and not a damn thing was done we need to realize that every game is a shootout and go out and never give the other team the ball. You can win by just putting up a million points even if you give up 3/4 of a million. Why can't we figure this out last year UGA knew it tonight gaynm knew it but we don't ever seem to get it until we are down by 2 digits in the scoreboard.

The defense was nonexistent - their offense basically just got some good practice in. Our offense was extremely inconsistent, at times DT was throwing to nobody. Don't know when I've seen a more complete beat down - and I've been watching Carolina football a LONG time.

The tackling was horrible but the coverage was even worse.

If every receiver didn't have a 5 yard buffer around him that gave him time to catch the ball, plant his feet, and run, tackling would've been a little easier.

No, IMO it's mostly personnel. We lost 3 corners when we really couldn't afford to lose but maybe one. That killed us worse than anyone wants to admit. We are young on the back end. Yes, the coaches tried to cover that up with a switch in scheme and it obviously didn't work but that is not the main issue. I mean if you saw the same thing I did, then you saw that neither man nor zone worked tonight. None of our corners could match-up. Period. Safeties were late getting to their man and their quick hit offense made our linebackers late getting to their spots too. That's not all on the coaches.

I mean hell, we expected to keep a spread passing offense off the scoreboard with ZERO returning experience at corner. Come on now, we are going to allow a lot of passing yards this year. That's all there is to it. We don't have the personnel in the d-line or secondary to keep from giving up a lot of passing yards right now.

We a very bad combination of weak spots right now. But, just like last year when our linebackers got better, those weak spots will get better as the year goes on. Leaders need to step up and everyone has to get focused. Maybe they all got a little bit of a big head this summer with everyone telling them how good they were. Or maybe it was something else. Maybe it was just that A&M is a lot better than anywhere thought they would be.

It's going to be a tough season but some of ya'll are acting like we are crashing and burning back to the 0-11 year.
Be careful, Garnet! You're in the wrong thread. A man of reason has no place in this melee. Logic is largely lost in this type of atmosphere. Let them rant and rave and get it out of their system.

I like you...Great post.

I can't believe some of the mess that he says sometimes....AND how in the hell would you (Head Coach) agree to some 3-4 defense??? You need MONSTERS 2 deep on the line and LB's. Hell SEC OL's are generally big and nasty and when they come of the ball the RBs are already running donw hilll

The tackling is the worst I have seen...terrible.....Should have had tackling drills on the field immediately last night...I'm dead serious....It would have created a huge public/media humble pie tweet! These kids love to read how wonderful they are, etc. but they have no idea IMO.

I mean get freaking NASTY!

DBs need to stop giving a 5-10 yard cushion at the line of scrimmage, and it would be great to see them cover all the wide outs. I'd rather see the D get beat deep on occasion, and make their QB thread the needle, rather than playing a soft-zone giving up 5-10 on short passes, seam routes, and slants. Prevent D should not be utilized until we really need to prevent them from scoring quickly. I'd personally like to see the DBs pressuring the WRs at the line, playing more man coverage, subbing fresh DBs into the game, and some type of disguises. Watching the D play all night was painful. In conclusion, the D coordinators need coaching.

I loved the bombs as much as the next guy; however, the Offense needs to play for first downs instead of looking for the bomb every other play. 3rd and long are not good situations. Sustain drives that keep opposing offenses off the field allowing our defense to rest and make adjustments. Our D should not be on the field for 50+ plays/game...
