Default Mike Davis

I'm not at all trying to find a negative in this win, so please don't take this the wrong way, but Mike just doesn't look like himself the past couple games. He looks like he's hurting. Just not hitting it up into the defense like he did earlier in the yar. Love him for still giving everything he had though, and the blocking for him was less than stellar. What did y'all think?

Well tonight that was because of Clemson. THey had 4 DL, and 3 LB's stacked over that.

It was CLEAR that Clemson was committed to stopping Davis, and forcing Shaw to beat them with his arm. CU did a great job stopping the run all night. And they really didn't do too bad against the pass either.

Containing Shaw, however, is where they got hurt. 7 in the box, means you gotta play man. And that leaves QB runs open.

Credit Clemson. They dedicated the game to stopping Davis, and did. But Shaw made 'em pay.

And how about Shaq Roland? Wow!

We're not creative in the run game other than the wildcat stuff we're doing with Cooper. That silly off tackle play is becoming stale and teams are defending it with no problem. Whatever Auburn is doing seems to keep working though. Consistently they get 4 yards a carry off of what looks like a very similar run play. Spurrier said a few weeks ago we need to get more creative on run plays, and we didn't see much change.

We really kept a lot of plays hidden though didn't we this season? I mean wow we kind of pulled some things out with the wildcat a few times. FINALLY on a 3rd and goal we run a QB Draw (Everyone in the stadium knows what's going to be called on 3rd and goal) and we had a little trickery jump pass. It didn't work, but damn it was nice to finally see that. We saved it all for clemson in the final game though.

We've got 4-5 weeks to draw some stuff up and practice. I hope like hell we go to the Cotton Bowl so I can make the drive from Houston.

They stacked the box and had safeties up most of the night. I think we ran him up the gut hoping he would break the second level and be gone. He didn't have much space to work with, and he couldn't bounce outside because they had DB's playing run support.

i think on the davis td run we went iso with guys just firing off and the fb leading. most of the time prior to that this season we've had pulling linemen in short yardage and those plays have been getting blown up as of late. tonight our run blocking for the backs was poor, way too much penetration. i think davis might be banged up too, but its hard to say because he never really had a chance because he was getting swallowed up before he could get to the line just about every handoff.

I love mike but it takes a team effort to win. When adversity comes along, someone's gotta step up. Personally I don't care who does the stepping up

Agree completely. Brandon looks ticked off every time he gets the ball & I love it.

It's obvious that Mike is still hurt.

He just needs time to heal.

Man, oh man, our bowl game opponent is going to get the REAL Mike Davis and he's going to tear them up.

Mike was definitely off tonight, but he will have a good month of rest before our final game. Should be 100% by then.

I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that Clemson was dead set on stopping our run game.

Auburn pulls a lot more lineman than we do giving their backs lead blockers which I wish we did. We do a lot of zone blocking that requires lineman to hold their 1 on 1 blocks longer and usually also have to chip off to a linebacker.

I figured Clemson would have been more focused on stopping Shaw from running, but for some reason they focused on Davis.

Don't understand why we kept running the ball up the middle. It was pretty obvious early on that wasn't going to work.
