Default What happened during the game with Vandy??

I wasn't able to watch the game because I was on a flight to Atlanta that didn't land until 7:00 and it takes a few minutes to get baggage then drive home, so I didn't get home until about 8:30. When I finally got around to watching the game it was the 4th qtr. We were winning by over 20-ish points. What I saw was terrible. Vandy scored. Then they recovered 2 fumbles and scored. I turned it off after that. Can anybody tell me what were your thoughts of the game? They were letting Vandy catch up very quickly in the 4th.

Also how did Clowney play? What was Vandy's plan of attack against him? Thanks for your responses.

We held Vandy to 269 yards of total offense. Vandy never put together a long drive. Each time they scored, it was because we turned the ball over and gave them a short field. I'd say our defense did their job for the most part.

Special teams, according to SOS, will get an upgrade with more starters. Too many freshman on those teams not doing their job . . . except Rhodes. SOS called him out. This is from the Spurrier show.

I think a lot of it was a lack of intensity after getting a quick four touchdown lead.

Every year that he has been in Cola he has said the same thing about using more starters and mostly nothing changes.

That is ridiculous.

1. Huge almost pick 6 that gave them the ball on the one yard line.
2. Two special teams turnovers, one in the red zone.
3. 7 points by the offense in the second half.

Defense comes in a distance 4th.

Yeah, I mean the defensive play did drop off from the three and outs they got early, but you can't pin the comeback on them really. I suppose we're just so used to them bailing out the offense and special teams around here.

I firmly believe we would've shut them out and put 40 or 50 on them had we not turned the ball over and started playing like a bunch of...well, ya know.

Default Re: What happened during the game with Vandy??

Regardless of what happened on offense, our defense looked in disarray on many plays. Guys walking around about the time the ball was hiked, terrible misalignments, and laxidazical play on many plays. if our D would have been prime time in the second half, there wouldn't be score after score. Yes we made some key defensive plays that kept us from potentially losing that game. But, those plays happened when our back was against the wall. You can bet any team we play, will be putting in the wildcat before our game. We did not look sharp at all.

On one play late in the fourth, they had three split out wide and at the last second, one USC defender ran over to defend all three. We were lucky the vandy QB didn't see it and went on to execute a designed run play.

no, I'd say a pick returned to the 1, a fumble on the 18, and a turnover on a punt sums it up.

We gave up 287 on defense, we held them to 96 in the first half.

For God's sake please quit blaming the defense for everything. The biggest problem Saturday was the special teams. STRAIT GARBAGE.

MEL, deerless is clueless. Overall defense was much better.....it was mostly special team turnovers that got Vandy back in it.

Clowney is playing hurt. He does the job but not as good as he would be if 100% healthy. Special teams. Uggh. Shon Carson does NOT need to be the kick returner, he's worse than Vic on punt returns and that's pretty bad.

We hit on all cylinders early, offense could do no wrong and defense had multiple 3 and outs.

Then we seemed to just relax and the tide turned right before halftime. They got 10 points right before the break.

Vandy got a couple of breaks in the 2nd half and we couldn't seem to stop the wildcat...momentum took an about face and we held on for the win.

What happened was bad special teams and a soft second level exploited by the wildcat. I want to see our LBs and safeties lay the wood and talk trash. Work themselves up into fighting mode.

Default Re: What happened during the game with Vandy??

I appreciate all of the responses. I wasn't able to watch the USC/UGA game either and I thought we'd beat them seeing how they played against Clemson. I'm just a bit disappointed, but hoping they'll get their act together soon. SOS definitely needs to make some adjustments. I understand we have freshmen playing, but they need to get their head in the game a bit better. From what I saw against Vandy is that the defense did pretty well. Clowny looked like he was doing the best he could.

My brother is a huge UGA fan and after that game he texted me, "Clowney who?" Sort of made me mad seeing as how they ran away from Clowney the whole game (from what I heard) and didn't do much in trying to face him. But it did win them the game. Damn Dawgs.
