Default What happened to DT # 17??

I'm not trying to criticize, but after watching the Mizzou game again, why has DT's production fallen off so drastically??

I wouldnt say he has struggled, but he has had limited reps due to Connor's excellent play.

He was great against ecu but that had zero defense and Clemson did not have much either. He put several balls in jeopardy against the taggers but they could not bring one in. Don't get me wrong he did play well overall but mizzou has a Solid D.

Against UFC his numbers would've been better if jones had pulled in the 55 yd td.

I did expect more from him though this year. We will see going forward but I will not be surprised if Mitch does not start at some point next year.

Connor for the most part has played much better this year except for UT.
DT threw the pick against Vandy that turned around the momemtum.

Default Re: What happened to DT # 17??

hes not that much different than last year, he's just had some bad luck. that and the most important thing to our success whether its him or connor in there is for us to get the rb's involved. the offense generally goes in the toilet no matter who is at qb when the rb's arent involved, see tennessee 4th quarter and ucf 1st half.

beyond the things that arent his fault (drops, playcalling, blocking), he does need to become more accurate if we're to remain a top 10 team when he takes over.

Because Mike Davis fumbled twice and nearly handed the game to Mizzou. Why are you blaming DT? Did you really watch the game? Davis went nuts. Why are you even posting this thread?

I really think we got spoiled last year from him.. yes he played out side of his mind last year against clemson and made a couple great throws against Michigan, but we can't expect him to come in every play and throw for a touchdown which many of us do

He's played about the same as he did last year. Last year he got to play more weak defenses so you only thought he was doing so much better. He has also had some misfortune due to dropped passes and davis fumbling. He also through some balls that could have easily been picked off last year that weren't but they were picked off this year.

This. DT didn't do anything wrong against Mizzou. MD28 fumbled twice and the receivers, including Ellington has the dropsies. I agree with this poster; do you people even watch the games?

Default Re: What happened to DT # 17??

Because sometimes you have good games and some times you have bad games? What, you thought he was never going to have an bad game and just play basically the same every time he came out? He had two games last year against ECU and Clemson, not the best defenses. Oh, and about a quarter's worth against Michigan with a decimated secondary who couldn't keep a pregnant cow from getting open. I am not saying Thompson is not good, but I warned people that we didn't have a good enough sample size to claim him our starting QB.

Default Re: What happened to DT # 17??

Since you're referring to the Mizzou game, Like other people have mentioned...MD28 had two fumbles. Mizzou's DE's were pressuring him all night due to having backups on the OL, and his receivers had stone hands that night.

Other than that, he did throw for over 200 yards. Not too bad considering.

Yes I did watch the game, and yes MD 28 did fumble twice, but no one can deny that DT isn't playing the same game he was heading towards last year.
To answer your questions:
1) I'm questioning DT because everyone had high hopes for him this year, and he has come out relatively flat this year. I hope he gets back into the groove he was in last year because he can be great.
2) Yes, I did watch the game, but from your comments am not sure you watched the rest of the games a DT's difference in performance from last yr to this yr is obvious.
3) From the way you write, I'd assume I'm explaining this to a 15 yr old... Why am I writing this?? Because I can!

If we base his play on UCF, don't forget that we won that game. We were losing when he went in. No, it wasn't his best performance, but it was good enough to win. UCF's only loss this season is from us.

If you watch Mizzou, he was 15-27 with 222 yards. That's usually good enough to win, but Davis fumbled twice at the goal, Legree dropped an interception, and several receivers dropped passes. I've never played football, but I know that when I'm doing all I can as a leader, and it still doesn't go right, I make more mistakes. It shakes my confidence.

Shaw has played extremely well this year. If you isolated his play to one game, Tennessee, you'd think his production had fallen off as well.
