“we’ve still been pretty good, anyway”
Is that what you call this on-going bullshit of never playing in a meaningful bowl game, losing inexplicable losses every season, and wasting damn talent every year, Vineyard Dawg ? Ah, bullshit son. Bullshit.
“And if you’ll remember, we actually punted from the ULM 40 yard line on the 3rd series of the game. Punting from the other team’s 40 is a decidedly NFL-type play call”
Excuse me Vineyard Dawg, but our defense kept handing the ball back to our offense and our offense relied on our defense to go back out there and bail their asses out again and again until they got tired. Then, we started putting in our subs, then we quit playing the game entirely and said we did not want to play any more just when I wanted to see Keith Marshall get his 100-yard rushing day. Just when I wanted to see our 2nd string OL get one damn snap. Just when I wanted to see Brice Ramsey throw more than just 2 damn passes. Such bullshit. This is what we have done EVERY YEAR Vineyard Dawg. Seems what you saw is what I saw as well – more of the same coaching decisions by Mark Richt including but not limited to telling the Referee when he said he was going to “Suspend Play” that Mark Richt said No. I do not want to play anymore. Let’s stop the game – instead of any of this.
“there were flashes of poor play-calling, no doubt about it”
You think ? We have our defense hand our offense the ball and they squander it, playing “safe.”
“Our sorta-kinda-won-the-competition starting QB”
“also why he didn’t “pull away” from his competition at the QB spot”
“On the negative side, though, Lambert repeatedly seemed pretty slow to make his decisions when passing the ball. He likes to hold the ball and “think,” and that’s not usually a good thing when you’re playing against teams who will regularly get a lot of pressure in the backfield. Also, Lambert didn’t seem particularly able to make plays when he was scrambling, so that’s something to watch when we play against a defense that will actually challenge our pass protection.”
“we have a history of “taking our foot off the gas” when we get a bit of a lead. In this game we came out fast and took a 14-0 lead and kind of sat on the ball. Then we managed to extend it to a 35-0 lead in the 2nd quarter and then get let ULM march down the field in the 2 minute drill to score right before halftime. Then we let ULM march down the field on the first drive after halftime too and boom we went from a 35-0 game to a 35-14 game”
“We won’t be able to spring for a magic lightning machine to have at the ready, though, since we’re already laying out tons of dough on a new indoor practice facility, so we’re just going to have to figure out a way to stop these mental lapses that let the other team back in the game.”
