MajesticCock has hatched from the shell
Default TRUST THE OLE BALL COACH

There is a reason most teams hate Steve Spurrier, because he beats them and tells them about it. Trust SOS when he says he will get involved with the defense, we should see changes that bring results. Here is what we have to think about and do:
1) We listened to the hype that we had the best DL in the SEC and we forgot how we got that way- hard work. WE FORGOT THAT PART!
2) Our Leaders have to step up on the field!
3) We get by Vandy at Home and somehow get a win!
4) Have a week off to work on defense!
5) Go to UCF and we will get challenged there by George Oleary's team but we should win!
6) We come home and play Kentucky. Another win!
7) That is four weeks that must must improve or the rest of the year is going to be a problem.
I trust SOS to get the best out of this team.
DO YOU?

He is the HBC, he should be involved in everything all the time, not just when we lose. I bet Saban is involved in everything all the time.

We will win the next 4-5 and be 5-1 before we hit the three game road trip which will decide if we win 10 or 9 IMO

If that's true, then why does he need 15 freaking assistants to run the team?

It's just like a business. He still needs to poke his head in to make sure everything is going well.

We will see changes. He always calls himself out after a game we lost that we should have won and rebounds with a better product on the field.

Because that's a hell of a ONE to lose that one is. That was a must win. But they are better than us so oh well. It's disappointing we aren't better.

Default Re: TRUST THE OLE BALL COACH

Everyone keeps talking about changes will be made but ignore the fact that the issues we had were not all defense issues where adjustments can fix it. Example play calling, wrong WR's on the field, not throwing to the TE's, not moving JD around, not using your time outs, etc. These are coaching errors just like the defensive game plan we had which was blown assignments but also coaching errors, we have a very young defensive secondary and I expect mistakes, but 3rd & 18/ 3rd & 13 we should be cover two to prevent 85 yard touch downs late in the game, use our timeouts and let our small young guys rest after tackling Gurley for 2hrs and make sure they are in the right spots on important plays, again common sense goes along way. Lee Brice says it all in a song, don't out smart your common sense.

Coach Spurrier said in a statement a few years back that he doesn't like the term "Old Ball Coach". He prefers to be called "Head Ball Coach" thus why we refer to Coach Spurrier as the HBC, not the OBC.

Yeah, that is right. We didn't lose because we had a bad day at the office or because we need to make some adjustments. We lost because they could run the ball down our throats any time they wanted and our guys are not physical enough to stop them. There is no adjustment for that.

People refuse to believe that we aren't the greatest team in the country this year. The media hyped us up so much. Fans blatantly oblivious to the fact that we lost the heart and soul (pretty much) of our defense. Fans also ignorant to think that a 2 deep that consist of 14 (out of 22) freshmen and sophomores on defense could jump right in without a hitch replacing guys that had been here 4 or 5 years (Holloman, Swearinger, Bowens, Auguste, Taylor, Smith, Jeffery, etc.).

We're a good team, but the year for us to make a run at the National Championship was last year. We got beat on the road at LSU and slipped up at Florida which cost us big time. Not saying it's impossible to win out and make it to the SECCG or BCSNC - but it's definitely a bigger hill to climb that we had at the beginning of the season.

Do I trust the coaches to make adjustments and attempt to fix the issues? Yes, I do - and any fan should. But I do I also realize that our LB's are young, and our depth at DB/LB is young and vastly inexperienced? Yes. So I understand that there are going to be problems along the way.

I don't want to say people set the bar to high for this team, because they didn't. But I think people over looked what exactly left this program in the past 2 years. I feel like (I may be wrong, but it's what it seems like) at least half the fans didn't think our defense was going to be a problem at all. Hell, I remember reading that our "Defense would be better than last year" during the off season on these boards.
