    Definitely exposed (again) tonight. May be worse next year. Elam can’t do it all by himself.

    Agree. We looked like a high school secondary tonight without CJ.

    Elam is a stud. Think Kimbrough will be very good. Marco was poor tackling and eh in coverage this year. CJ is a loss but Elam is a match gain. Safety position group is just bad but nobody leaves and we have talent coming in so don't see us as worse next year. Think our secondary woes are exacerbated by poor linebacker coverage (love reese but he is slow on drops).

    I want to see some significant improvement on defense next year, especially on 3rd down or Grantham has to go

    Va made 2 throws and catches for TDs that they very lucky to make the completions let alone getting the passes off. The secondary will be fine next year

    UVA got 20 first downs in the game. 19 by air and 1 by penalty. Heck of a rush defense, but the secondary was an absolute liability. With that said, Gators won and that makes me very happy. Great year Dan and team!

    At least on this board pretty much every post that mentions "DBU" is a negative one so I'm not sure who exactly you want to "stop with the DBU crap."

    Right, and who are those people? Because on this board it's just people thinking they're funny by saying "we're totally not DBU lolololol" Don't see anyone actually touting us as DBU.

    A lot of throws they were beaten on were after the QB pulled some Houdini like moves and escaped from the grasps of our defenders. They probably had a chance for 3 picks by just turning around.

    The two consecutive plays where the QB overthrew open WRs was very troubling as well as the last TD where someone clearly got lost in the coverage and missed a chance at intercepting a floater.

    No way is Marco ready for nfl, if he does go will likely be a late rounder or even free agent.

    #1 there was no DBU this year, all Ds looked bad this year vs the pass. Except maybe osu vs their crap schedule.

    #2 this D was head scratchingly terrible after AU. That day vs AU we could have beaten ANYBODY. Since then idk wtf happened?

    if Marco thinks he’s NFL material right now he’s delusional. He can start by learning how to freaking tackle
