Secondary needs to step up
Now we need to get a better coach to coach them up
Never thought we'd lose this game, as even with some of our bumbling around, I thought we had it mostly under control.
Wasnt exactly happy with the secondary and Grantham's soft approach. He needs to re-evaluate what he's doing in games like this.
Looked to me like we played a lot of contain the QB run and keep it all in front of us tonight.
That said, they had a month to prepare and it looks like they prepared for everything, and the momentum we had at the end of the regular season had worn off some too.
But we got the win, are 11-2, and will finish in the top 10 again. Was also glad to see Perine have a monster game tonight and help his NFL stock as well.
Great win but still a ways to go to be in the orange bowl again next year. how many busted coverages this year?
When people look back at this game they are going to realize the defense played well for 3 quarters. A couple fluke plays and a turnover by our offense early gave them points but few yards. We fell apart late 3rd and 4th quarters. Dont know if that was scheme or fatigue
A win is a win but I’ve struggled a handful of times including tonight on the offensive play calling. Running outside was working, why force the middle run in the second half that obviously wasn’t working? Why did it take until late in the 4th quarter to finally through one of those quick screen passes to a WR?
Yes, the game was closer than the experts predicted, but I'm happy with just getting the win(11-2 is awesome!!!). The Virginia QB just refused to go down, he single-handedly kept them in the game. It feels good to be in a position where we can be upset with an 8-point win in the Orange Bowl considering where we were 2 seasons ago. That means the program is moving in the right direction. Go Gators!!!!
Perkins may have played one of his best games ever fwiw.
How does Charlie Strong sound? Let's get the band back together
Their receivers made some circus catches too
We are nowhere near a playoff team. Excited with the 11 wins- but far from a playoff team. Secondary played awful.
11-2. Repeat after me...eleven wins and two losses. (Nine more wins than losses) We will be ranked 5 or 6, which is better than 96% of all FBS teams. I’ll take a close win over a close loss in a meaningless NY6 game.
On to next year! I feel good about the program.
True-but I remember A. Lott-he got burned a lot and then turned it around-experience and maturity helps
Kyle finished with +8 yards rushing on the year! Yay!
We are 21-5 over the last 2 years-we will improve next year-
I’m usually on the other side of this but I think some of you need to recognize how good Dan Mullen has been since he’s been here, please also understand his record this year was without a running game.
So everyone who gave me a "come on man" to this post doesn't think we can hire a better defensive coordinator than Grantham?
If you think we can, then why don't you name a few that are both better than Grantham and have more than a snowball's chance in hell of coming here?
Fair enough. My rating may have been excessive. On one hand our D did not play all that well, but a good part of that was play by the UVA QB. He was pretty slippery, and guys can only hold coverage for so long.
We aren't supposed to be a play-off team yet. Year #4 under Mullen should be our year.
