I think we could have scored more points on offense against A&M. The problem is our defense could not get a stop. I keep hearing how great the A&M QB was, but I think we made him look better than he is. If we don't find a way to get some stops on defense, we wont rack up points. Just two more stops in that game the other night could have been the difference.

I dunno. But it's definitely way too early to throw in the towel and declare this a losing season. At least give it a few more weeks before making that kind of prediction.
This sums up my thoughts and feelings as well.

We could bounce back from this in tremendous fashion or fall flat on our faces. Let's play a few more games before we play the blame game though shall we. Step away from the ledge gamecock nation put your torches and pitchforks away and sit back down in front of your TV set.

ALWAYS!!!

It will take Whammy till October to get the freshmen players up to speed and learn the defense.
I'm still optimistic about the offense but the D will take a month longer to
be a force. September will be rough for USC.

I think it is time we man the hell up and get a full time offensive coordinator. We have to be the only team in the nation that doesn't have one.

Did the team practice yesterday or today or just going over the game in the film room? Knowing they are already working on things would be something positive.

We shall see, but I bet he has other big games this year against some "little teams" to quote Spurrier

I agree a offensive coordinator is needed. Maybe if we had 1 SOS could spend more time dissecting other parts of our team and we would know sooner what works and what doesn't.

Would work for about 5 min after we get down by a touchdown or two. How long do you think Spurrier would tolerate a guy trying to establish the run once we get behind?

Spurrier will NEVER give up that control. He's not built that way & nobody with any credentials would think of accepting that position unless they were either already on staff, desperate, or crazy. It's simply unworkable although I think it could be potentially very beneficial & help with QB recruiting.

This is true. I think it will take a month to get this D playing well. We need the O to outperform until the D settles down.
