Default Has A Win Ever Felt More Like A Loss

A few years back Spurrier told us not to be happy with a loss. So, should we be happy with this win? Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we won,but I am not happy with the way we won. Should we be happy?

D was not as bad as everyone thinks. 15 pts came on 2 short fields where Vandy drove a combined 20 yds.

However it was a very complacent 2nd half.

When your opponent runs the Wildcat and your defense KNOWS they are going to run the ball EVERY time and they still shove it down your throat on an 8 play drive, that's LOUSY defense. Sorry, but it is.

Default Re: Has A Win Ever Felt More Like A Loss

The third and 10 where Clowney dropped into coverage- which I didn't think was that bad of a call, but Jimmy was giving a 15 yard cushion and they got it... That was a perfect example of WTF MAN...I was cursing Lorenzo's name and then I saw SOS get in his face too... SOS is about to really crack down on the defense even more.

No, that sums up my second half frustration. Giving a 15 yard cushion when the O needs 6 (it was 4th and 6). Watching our dime defense get wildcatted over and over... IT was more the 15 yard punt, the penalties, the fumble KO.... But most of all watching our LB's- our truw weakness get exploited.

This was a good win, but yes, it could've been great. Our Spec Team turnovers and INT are the only reasons Vandy scored a TD. Our defense played much better than last week. Our OL gave up 0 sacks to a team that was leading the conference in Sacks (8.) We avg'd 4.5 ypc, which is our goal. Our QB's completed 74% of their passes. We had 10 different players with receptions. Clowney caused a Sack-Fumble.
We won the game by double digits.

How do you think Vandy felt when we ate 7 minutes off the clock starting at our 1 yard line? They knew it was coming but couldn't stop it? Vandy has a good o line they always do

I haven't watched any press conferences or anything, but I'm wondering if that was our defense saying, "If you want to run the ball that's fine, but you're so far behind you'll never catch up that way." Maybe I'm just being too optimistic.

You win and move on. I have never, ever had a win "feel like a loss." Ever. I can't even understand that mentality.

Default Re: Has A Win Ever Felt More Like A Loss

To be kicking the shit out of a team by 3 TD's in the first quarter just to win by 10 points and only scoring two more times the remaining 3 quarters of the game does feel pretty disappointing. But a win is a win and the HBC will get things straightened out. I'm looking at you Deke.

Default Has A Win Ever Felt More Like A Loss

A win is a win. But if our defensive tackles don't get mean. We are in trouble. No push in the middle of our line at all. Clowney and sutton can't do it alone.. We got to quit calling the dogs off once we get a lead. Run your offense!!! If you can put 100 on a team then do it!!! Shaw looked good. Thompson had a off night a little bit but I can love with that. But no slants, no imagination at all. But hey we won! But I see alot of issues! Alot to do with youth but some to do with coaching.. And the student section plain out sucked last night. I mean really guys??? I keep hearing they want to expand the student section?? I think they should take seats..by the middle of the 3rd it was shameful.

Default Re: Has A Win Ever Felt More Like A Loss

think people are overreacting.
The D played better this week (granted, it is a step down in competition from UGA) and gave up points off two turnovers on short fields.

I'm more disappointed in our return game, and I think this is really where we miss Ace Sanders. I don't want to see Vic or Bruce back there, but so far Shon Carson hasn't shown he is the guy.

I'd like to give Pharoh Cooper a shot, and maybe even Jody Fuller, but Joe Robinson has two weeks to adjust perssonel on special teams.
