Spurrier should look in the mirror before he starts complaining about the defense. When has he had a good offense here? I don't mean a QB saving possessions with his legs, I mean when has Spurrier's offensive system been executed since he as been at SC?

Offense isn't the issue. You change your schemes to best suite your personal and that's what Spurrier has done once he got a dual threat QB in Shaw, Nosovitch etc and workhorse RB's like Lattimore, Davis, Wilds etc.

This game was very similar to the recent Denver/Seattle Super Bowl.

We got smacked just like Denver did and Thompson had the same look of disbelief that Manning had on his face in the second half of the SB.

There was a fairly strong rumor going around Denver shortly afterward that the game was intentionally thrown.

I am surprised we haven't heard that one yet about this game. I am not trying to be sarcastic.

It's about the only other reason something like this would happen.

You are saying DT threw the game?

I think I have heard it all now.

We didn't lose the game because of DT.

The Denver defense was rumored to have thrown the game. That would have been at the DC level if true.

It also tells you how ludicrous everything has gotten since last night's game. We can throw just about any reason out there can't we?

The two games were very similar in outcome if you stop to think about it. People can rationalize it anyway they want to.

We lost.

It's time to follow HBC's lead and just move on.

The Denver Broncos survived their little nightmare and so will we.

We will look back on this game later in the season and laugh at how crazy it made us think and act.

I expect that to change after the way Dylan connected with Nick Jones in this game. A&M took Shaq out of the game with their defense.

I expect our remaining opponents to be more focused on Nicky. That should open up things for Shaq or Cooper.

Spurrier is in his 10th season. He's supposed to have personnel to fit his system. I don't see Sumlin, Petrino and Cutcliffe changing their scheme. I see them actually teaching a QB how to play. If you don't think offense is an issue you don't know what you are talking about. TAMU has put up huge numbers against some pretty good defenses. Their defense has been putrid. How many times since Spurrier has been here have we really put it on a so called bad defense of any team in a power conference? QB play here has been a huge disappointment since Spurrier has been here.

It is more about adapting to the league or changing scheme of other coaches. For example, we have smaller quicker receivers while the league has gone to bigger and bigger DBs. When FSU blitzed UF, Spurrier put his QB into the shotgun.

moving forward..
As bad as the new CBs were, A&M moved it
in 10-20 yards chunks all night. Draw plays,
square ins, quick screens...ughh

Everything that Texas A&M wanted to do last night they did and got very good yardage out of it. Even a few times when it looked like they did not run the play correctly, we would miss three or four tackles and allow them positive yardage. This was not just a loss, it was a total embarrassment for our program. Our program should be a lot better than this by now.

Jesse Palmer made the comment that he had spent time during the week with Kenny Hill, the QB for Texas A&M and Kenny Hill made the statement that they would not only beat us, but it would not be close!!! That lets me know that the coaching staff at Texas A&M were way ahead of our coaching staff and knew that they were going to put a "whupping on us"! We will be a long time getting over this one and our coaching staff should be ashamed for the effort that both the offense and defense gave out there last night. I have seen many pathetic USC Games played in the past, but this one has to rank up there at the Top Of The List! Our coaching staff makes a lot of money and they need to put a better product out on the field for the fans that pay out good money for tickets to support this team.

I also believe this is the worst all around game we have ever played. You are exactly right we played a&ms game not ours and they will be laughing for the next year about how they enforced their will and made us abandon our gameplan.

Spurrier has changed so much in what I thought we would get out of him. I know we have to play to our personnel but folks if you want to use that argument we have had some of the best tight ends in the conference but no one ever tries to wing the ball to them and the last few years running back treatment has been crap. The days of giving 1 guy the ball all damn day are over. The players that are hitting running backs these days are too tough and strong for 1 guy to run into them for 20+ carries for 11 games or more.
