It's #2 as of now. It will not end that way (we will lose recruits, other teams will round their classes, etc.) IF we don't lose anyone it'll likely land in the 12-15 range.

I would actually pull for JR to spend more time on recruiting. It's where he can best help the team.

There was no problem with the defensive scheme last night. I know because Whammy said in his after game presser that scheme was not the problem. He is obviously smarter than me because he is a big time DC on a major college football program.

Oh by the way, Spurrier said the scheme was horrible. Wonder what he thinks about Whammy's comment?

You can't shite the bed that bad last night and not change the sheets today. Expect a change; I am just not sure where since everything was so bad. I would love to be a fly on the wall of Spurrier's office when he talks to Whammy. "Now Lorenzy, that team you put on the field last night wasn't bad; it was down right awful. We really got a major black eye on national tv and that is not gonna happen again. If you don't make some changes, I will. Oh, and by the way, your 3-4 defense stinks so bad I don't wanna hear about it no more! What are you doing telling the media boys you think that system worked? None of it worked! Not one single part! Fix it! Do you understand me? Hell, now I got a 60 foot banner of myself hanging on Williams-Brice just begging to be messed with! Anything happens to it and I am going to make you fix it. Now, get out of here and go teach your men how to tackle!"

I would like to think that we're that good. As a head coach, Sumlin has only had one offense finish outside the top ten (one finished 11 IIRC), and even then he had lost his first 2 or 3 QB's to injuries. Last year, we scored 40+ on everyone until Manziel fractured his thumb. Considering how well we did last night without him, I'd say our offense was more about Sumlin's system than Johnny's play making abilities. For a guy who played linebacker in college, he is a really good offensive coach.

It's a little bit of both. We're not as bad as we showed last night and A&M isn't as good. That said, we are bad and A&M was great, particularly at exploiting our weaknesses.

Basic defensive adjustments (like jamming at the LOS, for example, or cheating a man into the middle) could've made the score closer. A&M still would've won, but we didn't do ourselves any favors. It's not an "either/or".

There's a lot of truth in that. I honestly expected a score in the thirties or low forties.

And one more thing...being from the Upstate, I hope Georgia kills Clemson. I know I should want Georgia to loose in order to help us with SEC rankings. Then we can beat Georgia after that.

How does Georgia losing to Clemson help us with SEC Rankings? Am I missing something? I'm on your side though, I hope they kill them.

on the bright side, you don't have to be nervous about any of our games the rest of the season. Just sit back, chill with your friends or family, have a good time.

I always hear that the SEC is a line of scrimmage league. Last night it was proven.
Our Offensive line - average, barely adequate for the SEC.
Our Defensive line - totally inadequate for the SEC. And this is because of recruiting, pure and simple. How in the world could we not be able to replenish our defensive line with someone like JD here. It seems like all the good SEC schools get them year after year. Look at Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida, and now A&M. I could deal with the young secondary issues and the not tackling during the first game or two. But not having any kind of a push from the line makes our young secondary that much more vulnerable.
I don't think all is lost, we might need some luck here and there, but I can't see a double digit win in our future this year.
We would have never enjoyed the success we have had the last several years had it not been for SOS. I am not about to give up on him or this team this year.

Referring to Tom above, last night was a perfect example of why lines matter in the SEC and why we have been better than Clemson.

Our OL and DL have been better than Clemson and as good if not better than most teams in the SEC. Now, I'm not sure. Yes, we had problems tackling and secondary. However, the biggest problem is the line play.

Greg McElroy stated some stats after the Vandy game about our Defense, and Spurriers quote about our 3-4.

Said we ran our version of the 3-4 on 72% of total plays giving up an average of 7.7 yards per play. (8.8 in the first half)

The 4-2-5, 28%, giving up 4.4 yards per play.

We cant run this. Even if we could, guys looked totally lost yesterday. Clueless. (And of course the obvious tackling issues, etc...)
