The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Damn, Damn, Damn. A few quick hits....

- Aaron Murray is a stud - he is far from being the reason we lost. Playing in a tough environment, the R-Fr showed plenty of poise and great accuracy.
- Justin Houston - Enjoy this season, Dawg fans - it will be his final season in Athens.
-The defensive scheme seemed good - much better than last year when the opposing receivers were WIDE open. At least our players were in place to make the tackle. See THE BAD section for more on this.
- The Tech-Geeks lost to Kansas, who lost 6-3 to North Dakota State University last week.

- While the scheme appeared solid, the defensive players leaving their feet and launching their shoulders into offensive players is gonna drive me crazy. What happened to wrapping up the ballcarrier?
- Our O-Line - I don't care about the experience we have returning. I don't want to hear about injuries and how we need time to gel as a unit. We only get 12 games - we need to play good in the 1st 6 games as well as the final 6. The fact remains that we don't open up any holes for our RB's. For all "the experience" we have up front, I don't think we have much talent.

- Ealey's fumble was huge. Big momentum killer following the SC fumble.
- Our safety play was a huge disappointment. I was expecting bigger plays from Rambo and The Hitman. Those guys fell backwards on way too many of their tackles. Maybe that is my fault for expecting so much after drinking the kool-aid all summer long.
