    The lack of playing press man killed us vs Lsu last year Auburn did it and really slowed them up last year.
    You end up giving up 5-7yard short routes and they just nickel and dime you down the field, it's maddening.

    If we’d done that to them we’d have loved it. It’s still football - a defender intercepts the ball and you’ve got a clean shot at him to knock the ball out. Worked to perfection and nobody sustained any kind of injury. Play ball

    That's what's done it for me.
    Marco Wilson came in all world and IMHO is worse now than when he was 18....

    I suspect TG stays for next year mainly because there is no clear better choice that is currently available.

    That could change in the next month or so.

    When Mason ran the D at Stanford in 2012 and 2013 their ranking was #11 and #10 respectively. He became the head coach at Vandy in 2014 but that same group he had been coaching at Stanford on D ended the season ranked #2. He wrote the script how to stop / slow down that potent Oregon offense. Add on the fact he played CB and coached DBs both in college and NFL he would appear to be someone to get excited about.

    C'mon, man! Do you really think bring truth here is going to fly??? They showed this replay during the game and it was obvious that the dude led with his pads and our "fans" went ballistic. Crown to the earhole, cheap shot, defenseless player, blah, blah, blah. I had to stop following the game here due such idiot comments. More idiots on post game threads.

    Good play by Menchie. Dean needs to finish the play. You've just made a great play on the ball, but he must realize he is in traffic in the middle of the field. Keep your head on a swivel. I think he really should've seen him, but I guess he was dreaming of that pick six (which really isn't critical with our offense, we just needed the possession of the ball).

    If we could lure Jim Leonhard away from Wisconsin he would be a good get.

    Gary mentioned that on the telecast, if this had been a block it would’ve been flagged. I wonder if the same hit was on a QB standing in the pocket or even running, would it draw a flag? The high drill shot is what they’ve tried to take out of the game, this was definitely a high hit. The way Dean was carrying the ball though, a cheerleader’s pom-pom could’ve knocked it loose.

    If all rumors are true the Cotton bowl game will be Grantham last game as UF DC. If so who does the Gators fans want as DC? But please, please NO Charlie Strong.
