    That's it in a nutshell. If we do even half the number of dumb things in that game that we actually did, then we win.

    Yes, and if a pig had wings, he'd be an eagle.:roll: Yep, shoulda, woulda, and coulda : the three subjects used to rationalize a lose.

    LimeyGator, I guess you could also say if they hadn't come out of the locker-room to play the game, none of those dumb things would have happened.

    Gators help put them in a position to Win!
    Coaches did not correct costly bad play. JD should have been benched before the fumble that cost us the game!
    Murphy would have won the game and probably started the Tennessee Game.
    JEFF D would be sitting on the bench waiting for another chance!

    I've never seen a team so dominated during the game win the game.
    I still want to puke when I think about how we lost to that POS program.

    So we are now blaming Jeff for all the other mistakes made in that game lol? I dont think the team was too focused on the "rivalry" either. They went out there didn't execute in the redzone and lost a football game. The defense also came out flat.

    With all that being said Miami is a decent football team. I didnt expect to lose the game because I honestly didn't see how they would score. But a short field and a busted assignment helped them do that.

    We have not played a team anywhere near as good as Miami in the last two football games. But the positives so far are Matt Jones is running harder, the Oline is getting healthy, better Red zone play calling (TM mobility has really helped) and better play at the safety postion.

    We totally dominated scUM everywhere except TOs and what matters most - the scoreboard.

    We seem to be protecting the ball better now. If that keeps up, we'll be very tough to beat.

    I think Miami is better than we gave them credit for - but I give them only partial credit for the turnovers. They aren't better than the Gators with a healthy/good qb.

    We gave them that game. Two less turnovers and we win by 10. We didn't deserve to win and they are just not awful enough to lose with 5 turnovers.

    florida's defense gave up two easy touchdowns to miami early---is that "beating yourself"?

    You should have heard Mick Hubert and the analyst said and I quote "this is the best we've looked offensively under Coach Will Muschamp".

    Let me guess, they are anti-Jeff too? Nothing against Jeff but he was very limited as a QB. If I had to choose right now and both QBs were healthy, no doubt, I go with Murphy. I think for whatever reason, CWM blew this one. He's not infallible by any means. Murphy at QB vs UM=win IMHO.

    Your want me to keep you off ignore now?

    Who did I say was anti Jeff? We lost to Miami because we had 5 TO's and bad defensive play at the beginning of the game. Jeff was a part of those TO's but so was Matt Jones Trey Burton and the beat up Oline. If we replace Trey Burton do we win that game IYO because he played worse than Jeff? How about if Maye isnt in the game? You cant go out there and give up early TD's and turn the ball over. We protect the football and dont give up big plays on D we are going to win games. I hope the team can do that the rest of the season. We did it all last year besides the UGA game.

    You're deliberately missing the point(which I find humorous in itself). The point is that Jeff Driskel wasn't the best QB for this team. Sure hindsight is 20/20 but it seems that the staff fell in love with Jeff's stars versus the best fit for the offense. Jeff never really put it together here I'm sorry to say. I wish him the very best wherever he ends up(back up or baseball).

    No I think you are missing the point we are talking about the Miami game and the reasons we lost. There is plenty of blame to go around
