We got it out of the way, maybe now we can get over all of the hype and go fix the problems. Maybe now we will realize that we have to do more than just show up to the game.

I agree. This was the one before the season that I was really worried about losing. We should be 10-1 going into the Clemson game (assuming our defense learns how to play).

Hopefully Whammy will light a fire under their asses. Somebody needs to step up as a vocal leader on the field.

I won't say the loss will be good for us, but I'd rather lose early in the season than late in the season.

That being said, I'm the biggest LSU fan you can find right now (I still say they are the real deal).

I don't like that excuse. We have a 3 Jrs and 1 Sr on the DLine. 2 Sophomores at LB, 1 Sr/3 Jrs/1 Sophomore in the secondary. I realize the depth is a little young but I think the problem with our defense is more something internal or schematically and not as much the youth. There are younger defenses out there performing better than ours. Before some of you say "it was just one game" some of these tendencies were evident against UNC. Sutton's among a couple other experienced players that haven't pulled their weight so far. Not saying youth has nothing to do with it, just saying there's more to it than that.


This early loss is good and bad. Good in that it should help us regroup and focus now. Bad in that it was literally the worst possible time for a loss. Chances that UGA loses 2 AND we win out are very slim. I would've rather lost to UNC, Vandy, or hell even Kentucky. But not UGA.

I think you will find out what kind of character we have this weekend... If we come out flat, it could be a very long season. Im guessing there will be some serious soul searching going on this week in practice.

I've been showing up to practice an hour earlier and staying an hour longer. I know we will turn this into positive. We are on the right track.

Certainly agree. This is a pivotal game which will absolutely gauge the rest of the season.

Embarrassing given we play Vandy. I'm hoping Spurrier makes an example out of somebody

I don't know. MAYBE it will help us, maybe we'll continue to struggle, but to lose that particular game was too costly to be worth it as a some kind of trade off. It's a possible "on the brightside" scenario. It won't overcome the failure of losing that game unless UGA manages to blow their SEC East lead.

Clearly, our heads were too big, starting with Jadeveon.

It's time to eat some of the good old southern cooking -- humble pie!

Let's get back to the basics and coach 'em up.

A few observations:

1. Our linebackers aren't too small if they gang tackle and don't arm tackle. Their size should give them a speed advantage but they have to know where to go. Right now, they are consistently out of position. That must change.

2. Give Christian a break. Maybe he had a bad day. So what? Have any of us ever had a horrendous day at the office? I think we all know the answer to that one. Every player on the team has had at least one bad day. I'm sure he's doing the best he can. His position coach needs to coach him up. I wouldn't be surprised if he's awesome the rest of the year.

3. We have to be willing to take a few chances on defense. This game reminded me of the ridiculous Ellis Johnson "let's give every damn receiver a ten yard cushion" approach which cost us several games a few years back. You cannot win by trying not to lose. Risk is part of the game.

4. Our offensive line is getting better and better. I was really worried about the pass protection and it has improved remarkably.

5. Mike Davis outgained Todd Gurley. Just think the world ought to know.

6. The sun came up Sunday morning. The apocalypse has not begun. We can still have a great season and go bowling... we may even have a shot at the SEC East if we get back to basics. We beat Georgia two years in a row and they got to go, even though we had the better record. Maybe it's our turn for the system to sneak us in through the back door.

7. I don't ever want to see two South Carolina coaches go at it like that again -- not on national TV, for God's sake.

I understand what you are saying but where we are giving up big plays are when we're in cover 2 or Tampa 3 defense which are pass defenses. This is where young guys are playing in the secondary. And I totally agree the d line play is inexcusable
