    Before the season began I thought we had weaknesses due to poor coaching and lack of recruiting. I thought we would win 7-8 games.

    We are who I thought we were.

    This game showed that we are just a middle of the road SEC team that had higher expectations due to beating LSU.

    We are who I thought we were.

    The players looked disinterested, like they had nothing to play for. The coaches called a pretty bad game.

    We are who I thought we were.

    I still think Mullen has us going in the right direction, but whenever a new staff comes on board you need to get rid of some of the bad attitudes and bad players and replace them with recruiting top talent. I hope he can do that.

    Until then, we are who I thought we were.

      We looked flat early. That's not surprising. UGA was a huge game. What concerned me was how out-schemed and out-athleted we were on our own turf.

      What's the appropriate thing to say?

      I think we got skanked. Mullen's gonna get some shyt, deservedly so.

            The biggest problem was that Franks was terrible. Awful. He killed around six drives in the first half with just bad throws. Trask or EJ needs to start next week.

            Defense and OL just quit playing.

              Mullen is doing whatever he can do avoid burning EJ's redshirt. He has to be frustrated.

                This is what I expected to see all year. When your qb plays like Franks, it infects the whole team.

                  I predicted 9-3. I think that’s where we end up. Pretty much who we are.

                    Can we go ahead and start a thread about Missouri has more talent? Or are gonna just go ahead merge that with this one?

                      We heard how Trask would never play a meaningful snap here. He is a better QB than our 4 star starter. Im not saying he is a good QB but he is better than our starter.

                        The problem starts with Franks. This isn't a typical Florida defense but it's still good enough to keep us in every game. There's just too many stalled drives and pathetic play by Franks. There's a reason most of Franks' throws are behind the line of scrimmage and Mullen never lets him run the two minute drill late in the first half.

                        I would like to see EJ start against FSU and in the bowl game.

                          1. Frank's should not play again this year unless trask gets injured or struggles. when you have a subpar quarterback and a subpar defense it's hard to win.

                          While Franks needs to sit, you actually watch teams score on us basically at will and think the QB is the problem?

                            More game tape is out on this team and everyone has seen what Franks can do and what we do on defense, quick passes kill us and we have no QB.

                                I think I see a team that doesn’t believe in its QB. I see frustrated receivers. I see a defense sick of getting short field position and being on the field ALL THE TIME because the QB goes 3 and OUT 5 times in a row. I also saw a ST play its worst game of the year.

                                A lot of things need to be fixed. But nothing more than QB.
