Default Lets just accept what we have

Right now we are a team barely winning games against teams that we should blow out. All of you who are hoping Georgia will lose 2 games so that we can go to the SEC championship are crazy. We cant stop Vandy/UCF/Kentucky. There is no way we would stop BAMA/LSU. The result would be the same as Auburn-2010. Lets just try and win as many of our games and get to a decent bowl. The defense is young and needs some game time to get better.

It's hard to accept what we have with what we have had the past few years. It has been enstowed in us the past few years to want more and expect excellence... Back to our old ways now.

It's more on the coaches.

But I agree..do what we can and get to a decent bowl. I hate to say it but the east looks less and less likely each week.

You are right. It's time to just burn our dreams of championships and such. We don't have the goods to get it done. It was all just a pipe dream. We'll never win the SEC.

I agree, I guess no one else noticed that all our linebackers are 18 year old freshman.

The HBC will not tolerate these types of defensive performances for much longer without consequences. Coach Ward may get a pass this year but some of the other d coaches should be nervous about their jobs. Special teams looks uncoached and lost as well.

That IS a 3-4 loss defense, even with a great offense.

Because the ST's makes bad mistakes each game that put us in bad situations. If it weren't for sub-par ST's and getting outscored in the 4th quarter 30-58, this thread wouldn't have ever happened.

It was a shame Bruce fumbled, that was a good return, but he wasn't protecting the ball, plain and simple.

Hats off the Fry, though. If it weren't for him, we could have lost the game.

P. Cooper must have gained a lot of confidence in that run he had, maybe we'll give him a look at KR and PR.

I know everyone is saying what a great offensive we have, but did anyone else realize we went 2 full quarters and were only able to get 2 field goals against the worst team in the SEC?
We should have done to them what FSU did to Maryland.

We will be lucky to win 2 of the 3 games on this road trip... Arkansas has always been a nightmare for us out there, Tennessee is playing better, and Mizzou is probably the best of all 3 of them...

When are we going to put some blame on the defensive players? Yeah, the coaching hasn't been up to par but these guys are blowing MAN coverage and biting on every fake. The coaches are smart you can rest assured they are telling them what they need to be told but damn if the players you put out on the field can't play at least adequate defense then put somebody else's ass in.

Default Re: Lets just accept what we have

I'll repeat what I said last night. The worst part of this is that I THINK Georgia will now HAVE some trouble winning out with their injuries. There is at least better chances now that they will struggle. HOWEVER, we don't have the team that can win out to take advantage of the problems Georgia's having.

Florida or Missouri will win the east.

How crappy will that be?

I think we will be favored going into Arkansas, but shouldn't be. I think we are on par with Arkansas and Tennessee right now and going to their places BOTH could be losses for us. Tennessee played Georgia a hell of a lot better than we did. Missouri is playing lights out and then we come home to Mississippi State who gave Auburn fits.

Clemson...that's a nightmare game for us right now.

We could finish with 7 wins and 8 is likely. Odds for a 9 win season are pretty low.



On the special teams subject how MANY times this season has Hampton come out of the end zone or caught a punt at the 5 yard line...when a touchback would have gotten us at the 25?

THAT is not acceptable from a Junior....

THAT is poor coaching.

I'll say a bit of the blame is on the players...but try someone else (as you said) if they are not able to translate that coaching to game experiences.

I hope we see it this week. It's sickening to watch the defense get shredded now I know how it has felt to be a Clemson fan the past 5 years

Good thread:

God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, Courage to change the things which should be changed, and the Wisdom to distinguish the one from the other .Living one day at a time, Enjoying one moment at a time, Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,Taking, as Jesus did, This sinful world as it is ,Not as I would have it, Trusting that You will make all things right, If I surrender to Your will, So that I may be reasonably happy in this life, And supremely happy with You forever in the next. Amen.
