I point to the QB.
Plays, when run correctly today, worked.

You can't pin the loss on one guy, but eventually you have to start seeing there is a commonality with offensive struggles.
When your QB is completing 50 percent of his throws and you are throwing close to 40 per game...and going 1-to-1 for TD-INT, you have a recipe for failure on offense.

Just to be fair, I'll include the Clemson game.
17-40, 218, 0 TD, 2 INT
14-27, 199, 3 TD, 2 INT
32-50, 510, 5 TD, 1 INT

63-117 (53%), 927 yards, 8 TD, 5 INT.

You aren't going to be successful when that is what you get from the QB.

His year:
3,171 yards, 27 TD, 14 INT completing 62% of his passes.

Last year:
2,794 yards, 18 TD, 12 INT, completing 62% of his passes.

To sum up....Jake is who he is. What we got this year was the same QB we got last year...and will likely be the same QB we get next year.

Shitty product for most of the year. No one wants to watch a team with low game IQ. The coaching decisions weren’t horrible (minus the end of UF game) and the effort was mostly there, but our guys don’t play with any smarts or anticipation. We just try to outathlete teams, which will never work against the teams we play.

Total humiliation today. Worst we have looked since the Citadel loss. Coach and coordinators should be ashamed of themselves because they failed the team and the fans.

Deebo set the tone when he bailed and Muschamp enabled it, sending a clear signal that the bowl game didn't matter. The rest of the team may as well have sat out, they were a damn no-show today. Jake Bentley was putrid but our HC doesn't have the common sense or the balls to bench him.

I'm completely disgusted with what I witnessed in Charlotte today.

The inexplicable decision to throw raises at coordinators tells me all I need to know about Ray as an AD. He looks like a dipshit for that move right now.

Sometimes you get what you're forced to pay for. A championship level SEC programs reject who couldn't get the job done.

We can blame ourselves for that. We got so intoxicated with joy over two baseball championships that no one said a word when Tanner got handed the keys to the AD.

It was baseball for gods sake. May as well be a putt putt or Xbox Madden championship

I'm not really sure how to take this loss to VA. The guys seemed uninspired. Our best offensive player decided to bail. Not sure if it would have mattered. Our defense is completely decimated so no help there. Was it coaching? The offense clearly laid an egg. Did Bmac get beat or was it Bentley and the Wr's? Not a good look to recruits that's for sure. I hope Will can hold the class together, because we are in desperate need of quality playmakers. If not, he may be doomed here.

Would have been nice if Tanner would have given Lincoln Riley an interview for the HC spot... but he didn’t... and he had interest

We need another QB who can coach himself out on the field. Kind of like how Shaw did. He was great at making adjustments when needed. Bentley relied too much on the coaches. When you’re on the field, sometimes you gotta make adjustments and go against the play that’s called. Phil Petty was good at it too.

My thing: As long as fans, donors and BOT members continue to allow for this crap to happen, nothing will change. We as fans will continue to overpay for seats, pee in troughs made for cows, and be happy with 6-6/7-5 every damn tear... and watch our rival kick our ass in everything worth mentioning because they don’t settle for average like we do. Love what Tanner did, but he has to go.
