Default What happened in the UT game shouldn't come as a surprise

Our D gave up a lead. This time, it burned them.

But that is nothing new this season.

Except for the UNC, Georgia and ARkansas game, USC have given up an early lead in EVERY GAME.

Vandy-Up 35-10 heading to fourth quarter...gave up 15 in that quarter.
UCF-Up 14-10 heading into fourth...gave up 15 but luckily scored 14.
Kentucky-Up 27-7 heading into fourth...gave up 21 and scored just 8.
UT-Up 21-17 heading into fourth..gave up 6.

Teams with championship aspirations don't have a defense that gives up fourth quarter leads. Period.
A winning team doesn't allow inferior opponents (those four) to score an average of 14 points in the fourth quarter.

Our offense has been able to bail out our defense nearly this entire season.
But we all know, depending on offense to win games is like depending on the home run ball in baseball...it is nice, it is exciting and it gets fans crazy...but it is also unreliable and can go cold.

Defense wins championships, and it is clear THIS defense isn't going to win us a championship.

And I hope I am wrong, and will admit it if this team wins the SEC this year.
(I'll eat my crow the same way I did after the Arkansas game).

Default Re: What happened in the UT game shouldn't come as a surprise

I get where you are coming from when you talk about Kentucky and UCF, but when you are only up by four points like we were at UT and then they score, I don't consider that blowing a lead. IMO, "blowing a lead" means you were up by more than a touchdown at some point. If the score is closer than that, you just lost a close one. It happens. Move on.

Default Re: What happened in the UT game shouldn't come as a surprise

We didn't really have an early lead. We came from behind to get the lead. Special teams and bad playcalling gave TN the ball in good field position nearly every possession. Can't really blame the D.

This! I thought the d played very well. Garbage play calling and piss poor offensive execution lost the UT game. Which isn't like any of the previous games so far this year.

Default Re: What happened in the UT game shouldn't come as a surprise

Sorry but SOS lost this one. Bad play calling, horrible clock management, and a dumb decision to punt it.

Look at the last drive. SOS calls a stupid swing pass to davis. He should have just ran the ball to keep the clock moving. Instead he goes pass, run, pass, time out , time out, punt! The drive before he should have just ran and ran and ran.

Ohh well. On to mizzou.

The defense was solid. They are definitely getting better each week which gives me hope about this weekend. They gave up 6 points in the second half.

Cant blame the D. IF you told me before the game that we'd give up 23 points, I'd have said Cocks win by 12.

Default Re: What happened in the UT game shouldn't come as a surprise

Defense did good. They had 2 miraculous catches by North that won the game for them. The 2nd one Ahmad was right there and North made a great 1 handed catch. Not much you can do about that. Everything went their way all day. When that happens, we need to play our best to win games. Unfortunately, we had dropped passes, 2 turnovers, and poor play-calling late in the game (along with some weird calls on fumbles). We're not good enough to win games like that.

The previous week, everything went our way and we saw what happened.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that a team that had a bye week to prepare for us, and got us at home, in the toughest and most equal league in the nation beat us. Lots of pundits had this circled as a trap game for us at the beginning of the season.

Yep, and when we got a chance to flip field position with a big run we coughed it up the next play. D did a pretty damn good job keeping us in this one.

Or when Pharoh busted off the long Kickoff return we got flagged for holding.

The D did everything that they could to get the W this weekend. I am proud of the way they played overall. I'm upset with the anemic offense, Tennessee's never ending great starting field position, and the time out, time out, punt situation. UGH.
