Everyone had said all week to make AR beat us throwing. Their actual RB’s were 25/78 yards. That’s not bad. AR was 24/44. 54%. 18yd per catch.

I mean, you’re still here. And you still take the time to comment. So, you do care. A really good amount, actually. Because anyone who actually “didn’t care” wouldn’t be on a message board dedicated strictly to the football team, sifting through posts for some sort of vindication that they care, but not a WHOLE lot.

You can take the “holier than thou” stance,
but everyone knows it’s some insincere BS.
Reading comprehension is hard

I’d rather give up 600 yards and win……than give up 200 and lose.

also….. look back at the history of this rivalry
the team with the fewest rushing yards loses. Happened again yesterday

But Florida didnt get lucky? They were down 38-21 with 4 minutes left and recovered an onside to even have a chance.
Not luck, excellent special teams play and piss poor play on our part. Lucky Napier kept going for 2 early.

Not going to expect Alabama or Georgia to make those mistakes.

Our defense did their job. D stood em up when it mattered most. We played a lot of young guys in the secondary and they took advantage of that at times. I think if Florida didn’t feel like their season rides on yesterdays game the score/ stats would have been a lot different.

We lucked up and beat them. That was a piss poo performance. No one should be happy, we should expect more. The bar should be higher.
Lucked up? Our offense shredded them. While I agree that our Defense was very poor, we have to remember what we’re coming back from. We just beat Florida. Our run defense was actually solid. Also, they were on the field most of the game because our offense was scoring fast. We could’ve won by 30 truthfully. But it’s something for the team to build confidence on. You’re expectations are too high currently considering we’re about to be a top 10 team in heupels 2nd year MID SEASON. How many times have you been able to say that the last 15 years?

We beat Florida which is massive. The D has to get better. We should of blitzed more and sent more pressure....cuz when we did we had success. That's a coaching thing.
That would have increased the likelihood of them scoring quickly, which is basically the only way they were going to win once we were up 17

It was as if they let off the gas, when they were milking the clock, for no good reason. They got out of synch. The rest was almost CFB history. It wasn't, but it was too close.

We are only claiming we won, well, because, we did, in fact, win.
That’s not what this thread is about. It’s about how bad our defense is, because in fact, they are. We gave up 5/6 4th down conversions and 600 yards to a guy who has been terrible most of the year. Guys running wide open all day, missed tackles, etc. Nobody is disappointed that we won but we could have just as easily lost.

Excuse me for expecting more. Apparently people here are happy being mediocre. We will always be middle of the road SEC team I suppose.
Dude. Take a moment to think about what our coaches inherited. They’ve taken us from THAT to top 10. And sitting here whining like we’ll always be middle of road SEC? It’s like you’re TRYING to be miserable

They also held Florida to 21 points until very late in the 4th quarter.
