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.

This was our problem last year on defense. Our line (and the rest of our defense) was undersized and inexperienced. It made even our good players look bad.

what concerned me, BEFORE THIS GAME WAS EVER PLAYED, was reading reports that our guys DO NOT hit, or tackle fully in practices. WHAT? yeah, sos does not allow the defense to tackle at full speed in practice. worrying about getting hurt in practice, is just like playing not to lose, instead of playing to win. in my opinion, that is the crib-note on that entire travesty they called a game on thursday night. if you don't tackle full speed in practice, you don't know how to do it right for the games. AND IT SHOWED THAT NO ONE ON THE USC DEFENSE KNEW HOW TO TACKLE. NOBODY! they had tam's players in a loss situation many times in that game, and every time the player would just run past them. even the qb did this to pick up a third down, he should never have made. our guy just completely missed him, and he went another six yards for the first down.

this team better get real physical, really fast, in practices, or they will be soft all season long. this is a physical game. guys need to get hit hard, and hit some people hard in practice in order to be use to it in a game. hellish practices SHOULD make the games easy. otherwise, it's the deer in the headlights reaction that we all saw out of usc's defense in that game. there is tons of talent on this team. what happened to them was all about coaching, pure and simple. if the coaches don't get their crap together immediately, the entire season will be lost. and i almost feel like it already is.

and one last thing, while i'm venting, WHY DID WE NOT SEE DAVID WILLIAMS? that is some bs! if davis is hurt, we should have seen the other rb's, more. wilds did ok. but where was carson or williams. yes, we were behind, but running the ball keeps their offense off the field. and we certainly could have used more of that. once we saw that we could not stop them, we should have used a ball control offense. at least it would have given our d a rest, and kept their offense off the field.

We aren't as bad as we look. They aren't as good as they looked. Blowouts are always like that.

But one thing is for sure: They are REALLY good, and we are not. That's unquestioned.

By season's end...I bet they'll STILL be really good.

By season's end...we'll either by MUCH better, or, much worse.

The next 2 weeks are literally critical turning points in the Spurrier era. Is this game just a road bump over a 5-10 year era of 9-11 win seasons? Or, the beginning of a decline from the "Golden Years" of 3 x 11-2 seasons?

What pissed me off even more then the score last night was when Golightly started celebrating after a tackle he had on Noil in the 4th quarter with the score being 52-28.. What on gods green earth did you do to allow you to think of celebrating when all night he got ran over or blocked when they ran that same exact play. If I was Whammy I would of jerked his ass up for that

I think the reason they close practice after first week is because the rest of fall camp consists of sitting around, smoking cigs and listening to Steve tell stories from his playing days.

As bad as it was, I haven't given up on this team. Let's give it a few weeks to see how much improvement they have. If we are 1-2 after gawja, then I will be concerned.

The only person who had a chance to hit him was the kicker, who happened to tip the ball to him.

That's not true. I just watched the replay. #4 ran right by him. His only job on the play is supposed to be to HIT THAT GUY.

Post of the day. He should be on STs for the remainder of the season. And why isn't Botkin getting the criticism he deserves. Need to go back to H.S. watch any other SEC team. their LBs hit people! Ours can't even tackle much less whack somebody. Just a putrid staff, all hired by Whiffy Ward.

I don't think I heard Brent Musberger tell the Gerald Dixon/Gerald Dixon Jr. story at all. I was really looking forward to hearing it. What a waste.

Ok........ What pi$$ed me off even MORE after the game was during Spurriers press conference. He said he "thought" our team was ready!!!!

He "THOUGHT"?

And he gets paid how many millions of dollars to THINK the team is up to pare?!?!? Unacceptable....


Another thing........

I am glad someone made a comment that it showed we have been playing flag football all summer because......... Just watching previews of all the sec teams practice on the new sec network,,,, look at Carolina then look at Alabama........., just off the few short clips Bama workouts looked sooooooo much more intense then Carolina's. I didn't think much of it because I figured it was just some camera guy catching several random moments...... But NOW I know!!!! Sheesh
