Default Step back from the ledge

So are you guys just giving up all hope already? Yes it was ugly yes we need work but it was still the first game. We have a whole season ahead. Now the 3-4 I've never been a big fan. If you're gonna have 3 down lineman they need to be studs and have a big man like Terrance Cody in the middle like Bama had. Idk I guess Ward thought he was gonna use speed on the outside but I guess he forgot that that is probably gonna be one of the top O-Line's in the Nation. Their tackle will be one of the top picks in the draft this year. I think we have the skill set the scheme just isn't right for what we have up front.

We're going to be a team with basically their entire first string injured who leans on the strength of an elite defense to make up for their atrocious offense?

I must be missing something.

I'm not happy with the way they performed, but winners suck it up and get better. "Better" for us could be 8-4 or it could be 10-2. It's hard to tell after one game.

I'm not giving up. Your usual negative and pessimistic people will predict losing records, outlandish scores, and want coaches fired.

We have the talent, the guys just have to prepare better and give the most effort that they are capable of and this team will be ok.

Just remember, the weak losers thrive on times like this, so don't let them get to you. They'll be the first to jump back on the wagon if we reel off a few wins in a row

I've already jumped off the ledge-LOL. I live in the Klempson area my home, phone and email account has been over taken by the Klempson Farmers as if they are the ones that beat us. We will and must get this season turned around if we don't I might just jump. Go Cocks

5 in a row by 10 points or more and number 6 is knocking on the Kitties door.

I'm not on a ledge but the sooner each of you accept a 7-5 maybe 8-4 type season the better it will be for you on game days.

We just don't have the talent to contend for an SEC championship

I wouldn't say he's a weakness, but I don't think it's very likely that we'll be opening up the passing game and putting up video game numbers like people were anticipating.

I think he meant defensive tackle, since we were talking about defense.

Either way, I'll step away from the ledge when we show we can win some games and actually stop someone. Unfortunately, I don't see either one happening anytime soon.

I think the team has been humbled and has no choice but to scratch and claw after a loss like that. Spurrier is a very strong leader and there is no reason to mail it in from here. If anything we'll see a team play with reckless abandonment.
