I putting trust in our coaches we won't see that defense again for a long, long, LONG time. I know most Gamecock fans are eternal pessimist but get back from the ledge. We lay an egg every year. We did it early this year. We may look back at the end of the year and say it was best thing that happen to us. You do remember how the media hyped us. Maybe this defeat busted this teams big heads and makes the realize you have to earn it. I also the TAMU came in with a chip on their shoulder bc nobody picked them to be in the game. They played their absolute best. Tip your cap and move on.

Not giving up, but when you play like that, a lot of those problems practice won't fix.
But who knows, TAMU could just be that good. But our secondary is going to be a weakness all year, and if we come out in a 3-4 next week, we might as well quit on the season because we don't have the personnel to run that scheme.

Sad thing is we don't have the personnel for a 4-2-5 either. This is going to be a long year on defense, and probably all around. This is just not a good team. 8-4 was my prediction, but that may be optimistic at this point.

Again, we had a MUCH better defense that year. I get the point, but we have MILES to go before we can even think about making the kind of turn around that UGA did after that game.

Or a 5-3 or 5-2 or 4-4. The problem in my opinion was not the scheme but the technique. Head down arm tackling is poor fundamental football and you don't fix that during the season. This is corrected in the spring and early August prior to the start of the season

I'm sure we'll have another 10 or 11 win season, but if it doesn't result in an SEC East Championship, it doesn't matter. We need to get over the hump for once

If anything, hopefully the team will use this as motivation. Hopefully this loss, and sense of total embarrassment, has left a bad taste in their mouths and it will motivate them to come out and play pi$$ed off the remainder of the season. Beginning with ECU on Saturday.

That's all we can hope for. Still don't think it will be good enough, even against ECU.

I am worried about the effect of such a horrible defensive showing on our programs perception. I thought we were past this crap most of our recruits are coming from out of state now this could damage our brand and surely help our rivals who we all know already negatively recruit our targets against us.

Whammy isn't leaving. If you want Whammy gone, surely you want Shawn Elliott gone too. Joe Robinson should've been gone 2 or 3 years ago.
