Except it wasn't that funny. That was a piss poor performance from the Tigers.
Instead of spending the TWO SOLID WEEKS we had to get ready for that game doing something productive, we spent them doing ...??????
We installed some "new wrinkles." The infamous variations of the "wildcat" reappeared, which failed miserably when we had Davis and Spiller running it, and what do you know, it has pretty much proved useless again.
Perhaps we should work on some basic fundamentals of football, like pass coverage, or maybe catching the ball?
- You cannot allow the opponent's leading receiver to run down the field without a defender anywhere around him. After you do this, you cannot do it again. Or again.
- You must occasionally catch the football when it falls directly in your hands. You must practice this repeatedly until it happens, at least sometimes.
- Do not use your large running back who cannot do anything but dance at the line when you need short yardage. For that matter, don't use him so much at all, when your other running back consistently hits the hole better and gains more yardage.
In summary, the Tigers played badly, and deserved to lose the game with that sort of performance.
Dabo, that performance sucked. Shame on you for fielding that crap at homecoming. The bar was set higher in the first half at Auburn. We know this team can do better than that.
Napier, enough with the cute shit, and go with basic plays that work. Instead of spending time installing new wrinkles, how about working on some basics like blocking and catching?
Jeff Scott, you are fired.
