Get em all send om back to tennessee georgia and florida in search of talent this is our State- Oxfordawg
There were times in the game where our guys were outplayed, yes. That'll happen and that's what good teams learn to deal with. If you get burned, come back in and play just as hard and try not to let it happen again. Take your lumps and move on.
I think we're doing that pretty well considering our lack of experience at several key positions.
I do feel, though, that the coaching is what kept us from winning this one. We should know by now...and I speak not just about this year alone, but from the general Ole Miss athletic culture of, well, forever...that we cannot expect to coast to a win on an early double-digit lead. We have to keep our foot on the gas and not let up until time expires (or at least until the possibility of the opposing team's comeback is completely untenable).
We turn conservative with our playcalling far too early and often to be effective. We have got to play to our strengths. If we succeed by moving the ball via a combination of QB draws and passes of <10 yards (with some touches by backs sprinkled in), let's do exactly that. We need not run Scott up the middle on 1st, 2nd, AND 3rd & 10. Same as we should not necessarily gamble on a 30+ yard pass in a 3rd & 5 situation.
Argh. I'm frustrated. i need to just go to bed.
I mean, I love where Coach Freeze is taking us but minus a few bad coaching mistakes.. we're looking at a 7-3 record with a win against TAMU and Vanderbilt. Instead we're 5-5 with an upset needed to go bowling.. we can still do this guys but we have to put this loss behind us. Now I'm not saying we beat LSU but it's gonna be closer than most would like to believe.. we give LSU a run for their money 90% of the times we play em no matter who's record's what. Ole Miss- LSU's a huge rivalry game where "who wants it more" plays a huge factor.
We're not going to a bowl come on our coaching staff is doing good to blame our old coaching staff this is not the sun belt or girls basketball people we need a respectable coach not a wannabe lets just spend the money and get a good coach I'll chip in
