I'm not worried at all about our defense against VT. I think our defense will be great against traditional offenses. The only thing that bothers me about the Navy game is that it showed that we weren't completely disciplined on the field. In this respect, there's a lot of room for improvement. Talent-wise, its going to be a fun group to watch.
Very impressed with his play. I love the fact that he always seems to be in attack mode.
Actually, watching the .gif it's no wonder why we kept getting beat on the edge. We have two guys that fail to move and get wide enough in the play. If Lee doesn't blow it up, the pitch man is open on the edge for another 5 yards at least.
Yea. My take is:
12 is a lot of points. While people have been hiding behind "we covered the spread against Navy" we scored a TD when we could have taken a knee.
VT is a defensive team and our offense is struggling. Take a new OL and a new QB and I think VT defensive packages will confuse the hell out of us.
I think points will be at a premium. In order for us to cover, I think we have to be +2 in turnover margin and get a special teams/defensive TD.
I do small potatoes. I keep $50 in an account and usually bet $5 a game. I just think it makes the season more interesting for me. I rarely come out ahead.
I was very impressed by his play. Very aggressive player. Can't wait to watch the game slow down for him.
the coaches blew it by not challenging his "fumble"; that was a hell of an effort and run.
Please rewatch the play and look at his left arm.
I'm not going to judge any RB based on that game. Too many variables - breaking in a new offense, vanilla playbook, etc.
Please go back and watch the replay. You will notice that before he makes the second effort, his left forearm touches the ground, making him down by contact.
The line for the VT game opened at -12. I took VT.
Edit: Jez guys, relax with the dv's, I bet with my money not yours.
No offense, but this is a tough way to experience a first game. I implore you to take friends, get there as early as possible and make it an all day experience. I have found it to be a double edge sword, but the longer you allow to get excited for a game, the sweeter the experience, game, and hopeful victory.
Think of the coaches that OSU has fired. There's your answer. I don't ever see a point where OSU parts ways with Meyer.
I've got us as 11 or 12. But I'm of the line if thought that rankings this early should be dramatically changed week to week
I'm sorry but that's a huge cop out. I'm talking about offense as well as defense. And I think the middle of the defense did as well as any unit. I just thought aggressive, physical play was lacking.
We have to get better every week. There's nothing more bottom line than this.
It was a very close game. Closer than the score. Basically, clemson's offense broke down, defense was gassed and UGA had a serious stable of RBs that hit the edge. Clemson isn't a bad team, but they don't have much offense. UGA looked good but they were susceptible to the run with a competent passing attack and will struggle with a good run defense because they are one dimensional as well
I was disappointed with the team physicality. As a team, it seemed we were hesitant to initiate contact at about every position. Hopefully some of this is related to first game jitters.
Keep in mind that the next poll will reflect the loss of Braxton miller.
I thought the offense was very basic. I thought we should have had our way more today. I'm not sure how much of our offense today was related to execution and coaching vs. playing the defense that we did. No disrespect to Navy, but they aren't a defensive commodity. I worry that we will struggle on offense against VT.
My money is on LSU. Should have taken UGA too, but I passed on that game.
Yes. Whatever was called on the field was not going to be overturned. I don't think he was out.
No. According to the rules that was a TD.
You're right. I'm not sure what the call on the field actually was. Bottom line though: it wasn't a first down, ever.
Actually the officials made the correct call. He was absolutely down. Rewatch it before calling out the officials competency.
They will be tough for sure. I think it will be refreshing to play a traditional offense. I worry about our offense though.
What worries me is that i thought we lacked a physical brand today. That scares me.
I noticed. He was definitely down. But I still think they could have taken more time to see the defense.
