    Bama's secondary is not that good. Their front seven is another matter.

      Garbage half and Trask still has 200 yds passing and 2 TDs. If not for that.....

        Everything about the last play of the half bothers me, especially that it was the last play of the half.

          Bama is going to shred our defense.

            It's happening about like it did two years ago, hopefully no fight. We will be fine.

              seems like it was just yesterday when we were happy if Driskell at least got to 70 yards passing for the game.

                  The scoreboard, and the ref who made the call, disagree with you.

                    Was a catch. He controlled the ball until his knee touched down. What happens after that is irrelevant.

                      Who hasn’t though?

                      Question is, can we shred Bama’s D?

                        From just poor play to outright horrendous coaching, this was a terrible half. Can't run against a 3 man D line, so Vandy is dropping 8 on every play. Lucky not to have been picked off multiple times, but until your 5 can block their 3, then it will continue. Can't force the ball thru these guys, just have to check it down. If the running game does not get going , this game could be close as we know our defense will EFF up a bunch.

                        Speaking of the D, have you ever seen a dumber group of players along with the poorest coaching? The entire defense is running around like chickens with their heads cut off every play as the ball is being snapped. No one knows their assignment or recognizes the formations. Yes, we have almost no talent on D, but that does not excuse the inability to know one's assignment, even if your coach has no idea what the hell is going on.

                        BTW, I think it is a misprint. Isn't Vandy 6-0?

                          I don't think there is a decent, i.e., dominant, defense in D1 this year. Somehow the rules and COVID have conspired against the D. A long time ago we used to say the defense started ahead of the offense cause less skill and coordination is required. That doesn't seem to be true anymore.

                            Foot, knee, and hip all hit before his hands and the ball did.

                              That doesn't explain basic tackling...how is it Vandy can tackle?

                              You learn that in POP WARNER

                                If Grantham enters Spring practice as the DC, CDM will be well on the way to sealing his own fate. The shabby excuse for a defense we've seen all season long is a disgrace, and beyond the end of this season the only one to blame will be Dan Mullen. The offense is struggling, which to some extent I can ride with, schytt does occasionally happen. But the defense is putrid because the coaching is putrid. Fire TG or forget ever winning anything of significance. This is line in the sand time.

                                  All true, but in games against real opponents, you have to at least be competent mentally if not physically. We are not even a Zillion miles from competent yet. I would settle for learning how to line up, you know the thing you learn the first day of Pop Warner practice.

                                    No clue. You are right though, the university coaching staff shouldn't need to coach tackling.

                                        We are still getting whipped on the LOS on our passing downs. Kyle is rattled. Bad short pass and didn’t want to dive for first down.

                                          These announcers suck...the ball crosses the plane.

                                          They didn't like the TD...now a 1st down.

                                          That said, Trask WTF. If he stays standing he gets 3 more yds...that looked like FRANKS

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
