I am optimistic we will get bettr. I just don't know how long it will take. I can't give up on our goals until they are gone. We still have everything out in front of us. But, we looked so bad on d last night, it is tough right now.

I will say this, I would rather get blown out than lose a close game. At least we know we should have lost. It is easier to get over. A close one eats at you for days.

A 4-3 defense works better against them, especially since they want to run the ball.

If we run the 3-4 against them, Gurley might run for 300 yards and heads better roll. I don't know a lot about football but even I'm smart enough to know how we need to line up against UGA.

I'm with you there.
If we come out in a 3-4 against UGA Ward should be fired for being a complete dolt...or just too stubborn to admit his 3-4 scheme doesn't work.

And Georgia may be able to just pound the rock this year...Gurley, Marshall, Michel and Chubb. Mason may be able to be like JP Wilson from Bama and just simply be charged with not screwing up.

3. Sos will not be embarrassed 2 weeks in a row.
4. ecu won't score as fast as a&m when they do. We may pull out a dink and dunk victory, but we will look better than we did last night.
I like your optimism...and I think it will be closer since ECU doesn't have TAMU's talent.

1-I just don't see us stopping them..McNeil and staff watched the tape, and if we play zone again like we did, it will be a long night.

2-I hope we can run, at least to keep our defense off the field so they don't screw up.

3-SOS won't be...Ward, not so sure.

4-That is what I'm thinking right now...we may have to win a 45-42 type ball game.

I'm optimistic in that this game will no doubt place a chip on every single player's shoulders. So, there's still a chance. We kissed away the playoff last night but we can still win the east. Just win.

I'm optimistic, nearly 100% certain, that we will play 12 games this year.

After last night, I feel better knowing that at least we aren't Vanderbilt. I'm confident we can still beat them.

Next year is our rebuilding year. We're losing our QB, at least 2 RB, 3-4 WR, and over half our OL. We need to take the East this year or we'll have to wait a couple more years.

I'm still optimistic, in my opinion, if you're a fan you have to be. We've only lost one game and it was the first of the season. So, on to ECU.

hell no!!!!!!!!! i am not optimistic. because i recognize that the problem isn't the scheme, or the personnel. the problem is the coaching. i've said it time and time again, that i am not sold on deke adams. he is nowhere near the dl coach we had before. i saw it last year, and it is even more evident this year. second, having cupcake practices is the reason they can't tackle. sos will not allow them to tackle at full speed in practices, and that is killing them. it makes our players delicate. they aren't use to being hit hard, and they surely are not use to hitting anyone hard. hell, most of the players on our defense couldn't hit the water if they fell out of a boat. they missed everything they aimed at on thursday night. i really couldn't believe what i was seeing. still can't...

Why wouldn't I be? It's football season. It's the best time of the year. Besides, it was week one. We come out flat in week one every single season, it's just usually against a crap team and we get away with it. Has anyone been happy with a week one performance in the last decade, other than maybe Southern Miss in 2010? They've all been ugly, ugly games. We've just been fortunate to win all of them...until last night. We typically suck week one (which I suppose should be a concern), so I'll week at least another couple of games before freaking out too much.

I still believe we'll finish with a winning season, but winning is the east, I'm not too optimistic about. If we struggle against East Carolina next week, then we might actually end up with a losing season. We need to absolutely blow them out the water to build up this teams confidence. IF we can somehow beat UGA, then we should be able to win the next four and be 6-1 going into Auburn. Tennessee and South Alabama should be wins, but Clemson/Florida are toss ups. We could finish 9-3, but we also could finish 6-6 and end up in the Who Gives a Shit Bowl.


Unfortunately, after seeing how our defense performed last night, I'm actually concerned about East Carolina. Lose that game, season is 100% done and it's time to clean house and pray to the football Gods we can keep our 2015 recruiting class intake, because we're going to need them.

I mean it's just one game so it's hard to predict a season based on one game, but I've never seen a game that one sided before. It was hard to watch. We obviously have a lot of work to do. We knew that the offense would be the strong side, but we didn't know the defense would be that bad. Why did we change the defensive scheme? I know it's cause Clowney wasn't there and we didn't have a true pass rusher, but changing to 3-4 didn't seem to work, at all.

The players need to nut up and play angry. Get that chip on their shoulder and play like they actually care about their pride. Study the tape and learn from the mistakes. Tackling will be paramount so they better learn that too..
