    If my assumptions are mistaken then please tell me why you think so. As for BSU, I watched more than enough to know that their offense was balanced enough to take advantage of what would work against the opponents defense and not a single minded beat your head against the wall power running game in spite of no success with it.

    We're still losing a number of guys and many of the ones returning are going to have to make quantum leaps in improvement to make this team better. We could take a huge hit at CB, and our already horrible O-line is losing some major pieces. We still don't know if we have a QB, Patton has been the only playmaker on offense and we don't even know who is going to be coaching the offense.

    Will any of those teams that you listed be any better than they have been the last year or 2? Many are losing starting QBs that have had a major roll in their success. Bama and LSU will probably start the season in the top 10 based on reputation alone, kind of like how we were. It's going to be tough for them to be better than they are now breaking in new QBs, and FSU may be as well.

    Philosophy, play calling whatever - you should be able to go out and run over a chump like GA Southern at home.

    The fact we didn't shows that we have no intensity, desire or pride. You slack off and take a team lightly when you've just lost 5 in a row.

    Fire whatever coordinator you want, this is all attitude and it's all on the head coach.

    I'm with you. I don't see this ton of experienced talent. If we lose corners early to the draft there might not be one position that is solid. Maybe running back? Just about everywhere will have major question marks. Not a recipe for success. How our roster is in this bad of shape is beyond me.

    So you would hang on to CWM so he couldn't go anywhere else and do "better"? I can understand keeping him for financial reasons or for the want of a viable alternative but no so another school couldn't reap the benefits we have from CWM...

    I didn't know Will Muschamp's mommy posted here....Be sure to tuck him in at night we can't have his feelings hurt now just because silly posters here expect for him to win games in return for his 3 million dollar salary. Everyone wins everyone gets a trophy!

    There's not much sunshine to pump these days thanks to Muschamp so they have started pumping coal.

    If we hadn't lost our starting QB we may not have lost any games at all after Miami.

    Let that sink in a bit.....and then say the head coach must go.

    ? Because QB play was awesome at Miami...

    There are a lot of "if onlys" this season. If only GSU doesn't rush for 430 yards... How can you quantify losing a starting QB to a 6 game losing streak. Vandy seems to be doing ok

    So - the head coach must go?

    I have issues with Coach Boom myself - on quite a few things - but good lord talk about over reaction.....

    I was responding to your theory that if Driskel was healthy we would be 10-1 right now.

    Thanks - not really a theory - just something to think about. Anything is possible as we all know. Losing a key player like a QB - that's huge. Especially regarding the offense - which is our biggest deficiency this season.
