We’re over our feeling bad about the humiliation at the swamp. If you missed the awesome theme we had going along with the awesome posts, that’s too bad, because it was funny.
Anyway, that was a pretty horrible showing, spotting the Gators 4 non-offensive touchdowns. I mean, even take those away, and we still lose, but anyway.
In an eerie simulation of the Cal game, we got to within one score, where we became ineffective, and decided to piss away the rest of the game, effectively giving up with more than 10 minutes left in the game, punting on 4th down to give our defense some more humiliation at the hands of Mr. Weird Smile a.k.a. Tim “Timbow” Tebow. Man, I hate that guy. Also, what’s the deal with calling dink and dunk passes with a good amount of time left? Can’t Crompton just go in there and throw a few bombs just to see what happens? It seems bad enough when we get down by a bit, but it seems worse when the coaches give up too.
What else is there to say? At this point, a bowl game seems to be what we should shoot for. Perhaps the Liberty Bowl, or the Independence Bowl? It has come to pass that we are behind the ball in terms of innovation and ability. With the types of athletes that we have, we shouldn’t be allowing 39 points let alone losing by 39 points.
We don’t have any playmakers at the receiver position, and our defense is inexperienced, but that is no excuse for not keeping up with assignment football. Sure, chips could fall just right, and we could win out and win the SEC, but with the way Bama is coming along, as well as having to face Georgia, who are hitting their stride, and a much improved South Carolina team as well as Arkansas and their darkhorse Heisman candidate, it looks to be a long season indeed.
Did anyone else notice that we have yet to take any real deep shots down the field? I mean, part of it I’m sure is the inexperience in the receiving corps, but one has to wonder whether or not the broken pinkie is playing more into those decisions than we might be led to believe. I have no question that Ainge is the right guy for the job in terms of knowing the offense and being in control, but perhaps he should rest up that finger and give Crompton some meaningful time.
We of all people don’t want to see it happen, but perhaps it’s time for a change. If Fulmer and his staff can’t get it done, perhaps it’s time to change the coach, or even the staff. The names we had thought of that are floating around are: Bill Cowher, Norm Chow, John Gruden. But if Fulmer wants one more year, I think he deserves it… but that would be a very pressure-filled year indeed.
