    Complete Domination + horrid turnovers = completely horrid loss.

    What would the score have been if we only had 1 turnover and they had 5?

    Exactly what I pointed out in another thread. Miami won the game. That is not debatable.

    But if we won by 4 points after being out-gained 400-200, my outlook on the team would be a lot worse than it is now. A LOT.

    But we got what many wanted - Driskel just a couple yards short of a 300 yard game, threw the ball 33 times, completed 22, a WR with over 100 yards, and several long passes that stretched the field.

    I don't mention this to be sarcastic or to be critical of anyone. The point is that maybe the coaches had a reason for not throwing the ball quite as long or as often as we did yesterday and maybe we saw that reason.

    Amen.

    I feel bad for JD. I think he felt forced to make big plays instead of smart plays.

    There's something to be said about both sides. Sure, a win is a win, and it's always better than losing. Sure, we dominated Miami, but we still lost (silver lining).

    The main point I took from yesterday's game is that JD is only good enough to win a lot of games when our game plan works (which it usually does). He's not (and probably never will be) good enough to take control of a game when things aren't going our way. Unfortunately, when you play in the SEC, things aren't going to go your way about 2-3 times a year. JD is not the answer.

    It's a bit premature to imply that he may never catch-on.

    I'm not convinced on JD. In either direction. Obviously he is no Tebow, but neither I don't think that he is a...um, what was our last QB's name again? Bumbly Jim? Anyway, what kind of QB can JD be? A Leak? A Palmer? An Ingle Martin? A Doug Johnson? I don't think that we know yet, but some of these possibilities won some games despite their flaws.

    Even Tebow famously never brought us back from a halftime deficit until his senior year. Not that your view of JD is equal to that idiotic analysis, but how ludicrous was it that the media focused on that stat?

    It's pretty sad then if we can't have a decent passing attack (which it was good, but it wasn't phenomenal. It was average really) without completely imploding like that.

    Unfortunately, the only stat that ever matters is 21-16.

    Exactly.

    We completely dominated a teams offense who returned almost all of their starters from last year (was a pretty good offense last year), and was supposed to be explosive and dynamic. We gained 413 yards of offense.

    It's a lot easier to fix a gameplan, than it is to fix talent (See Florida 2005 after Bama). The talent is there, something needs to be fixed in the redzone, as the redzone problems aren't exclusive to the Miami game.
