Default Poor Tackling

Yes our defense has improved over the year as a whole but our tackling hasn't change any. Anybody else concerned about Clemson now?

Yeah, the tackling was much better after the half. I question our defensive coaching more than anything. Fla was all but quarterbackless and everyone knew what they were going to do except our D. We made them look better than they are for 2 quarters. On a different note and a pet peeve of mine, our punting sux like no other!!

Our secondary will probably have their biggest test of the year against Clemson. They attempt a lot of long balls. The d-line will have to get better penetration than they have most of the year. That being said, Connor and our offense are going to have to be spot-on to score a bunch of points and win the time of possession battle to beat a good Clemson team.

1st half FLA exposed us on one-on-one matchups. Covered it up on defense by removing the one-on-one plays in 2nd half

Default Re: Poor Tackling

Tackling across the board in college football is bad from what I have seen. I watched a Georgia tackler not even extend his arms at all yesterday to try and take down a runner. All he did was try to lower the boom and tons of times tough runner will bounce off and get extra yardage in that situation. Chris Culliver used to piss me off so bad with his lack of tackling.

You mean the times when he played with bad shoulders? Do you remember Chris busting heads in that Bama game in '10? How was his tackling when he was healthy? Get any looks by the NFL?

And how many tackles did we actually miss? A lot of that was our D getting blocked out of the play because of poor schemes....see what happened when we adjusted? And for that much, UF's tackling was just as poor all things considered.

In the first half it looked like our LBs were falling for the first movement and putting themselves just a half step or so out of the play so the OL could block them. The second half they played their gaps better.

What the hell are you related to the guy? You took that a little personal didn't you? Am I the first person you have heard say Chris Culliver was a bad tackler. Yeah, I know he made the NFL because I was reminded when he made a gay slur last year and when he tried to start a fight with the Ravens punter when the game was already over. Chris Culliver was a dissappointing player in college if you don't agree I am sorry. He was a five star coming out of high school who played a 3 star level for us.

All I gotta say is we better have it fixed before Clemson. I'm worried about our secondary, Clemson is super fast at every WR position. Gotta be able to tackle when they come into WB.

The Tiggers tend to go down without the same fight as the UF players.

They look super fast because they are playing a bunch of guys who weren't recruited by anybody. They are also a lot better at home than on the road just like most teams.

Their defense doesn't have anywhere near talent of Florida. That is one of the best defenses in the country even after the injuries.

It was pretty clear that they were completely perplexed by the initial Florida gameplan. Obviously something they hadnt seen on film due to the quarterback situation. They adjusted, second half looked alot better.

The key to holding Clemson's offense is looking through the bullcrap. Clemson uses alot of eye candy. If the coaching staff can help the players diagnose the plays quickly, it will go a long way. Whammy has seen it three years now, and has pretty much shut it down. Put pressure up the middle and force Tajh out of the pocket is the key. Make him make plays.

Another xfactor in that Clemson game is the fact that Clemson has yet to play a quality opponent on the road in hostile atmosphere. Goes a long way, whether people want to believe it or not, playing on the road in Williams brice is going to be a chore for Clemson. And I think Quarles is going to have a huge game against the Tigers.
