Wait till you hear that stupid turkey call they have on 3rd down. It's so annoying it should be illegal. I can't seem to understand why their fans aren't embarrassed by it.

I'm on the boat. They gave us free WiFi access except there are so many people no one can stay on for long. We are about 30 miles west of Tampa Bay hanging out with other ships in the Fog. Cruise director is doing his best but many people have missed flights etc. It's all good. We're not going to run out of food and the ship is fine. GO bucks!

I willing to face the facts. We are not that good. VT and PSU knew that we runeed the ball 97% of the time. They dared us to throw and sent extra bodies to contain the running game. We have injured a Heisman candidate bad enough to lose him for a season and we have now injured a second excellent qb. I personally can't staND watching the qb run the ball 30-40 times per game. Makes me cringe. The probability of making it through a season in a good league is much lower trying to do this. Yes I know Urban did it at Florida, however, that style of offense was much newer back then and many coaches struggled to defend it. I like to call it the qb killer not the spread. Bud Foster compared us to Ga Teach and said we run it just as much. So we have the best athletes in the country and we are running a freaking veer.

How do you go through spring and fall camp without realizing you need to rearrange your OL? The coaching is questionable. The secondary needs a lot of work. I refuse to get hyped up on all of the athletes we sign. We need to sign more football players. Our 5 star athletes lack football IQ in some cases. We looked like pretenders and with our resources, facilities, and fan base we should be in championship contention every year. This is not acceptable to me at all.

The reason this article was written is because Urban's offense runs the QB too much.  I would prefer to see running the QB only in important games and only if required.  We have the athletes to line up and out muscle our opponents so running the QB should occur in special situations vs being the staple play.  Braxton is injured as a result two seasons of running the ball and taking unnecessary hits.  This is Charlie Bauman's revenge.  If we ever play POS Clemson again I hope we put several players in the hospital (with most of their fans).  I don't like all of this QB running one bit.

The SEC was down last year. There was no defense and about 100 points were scored in the SEC championship game. Alabama got it handed to them by an average Oklahoma team. Two B1G teams nearly beat their SEC opponents in their bowl games. Wisconsin and Iowa played against higher ranked opponents and fared well. There are a few issues that I see that feeds the SEC machine: the SEC always gets home field advantage during bowl games. And SEC teams get better match ups in the bowl games, for example, last year every B1G team was ranked lower in their matchup with an SEC team. I believe that to be true for remaining matchups the SEC had with other conferences. ESPN spin machine doesn't help either. ESPN started the SEC network and they are going to have their own college game day program for the SEC. this will just make recruiting more difficult especially for the B1G schools with higher academic admission standards in less desirable locations.

Need to play defense. Starts with defense, defense, defense. Everything else will fall into place after the focus on defense. Craft is trying to do too much. He needs to play within himself and we need others to step it up around him.
