    gators - shutout from 8:00 minute of 2nd quarter through the 3rd quarter
    ole miss - Last TD came at 6:00 mark of 1st quarter. Shutout 2nd half
    arky - kept out the endzone till 4th quarter
    bama - kept out the endzone till 4th quarter.

    That is the point @Kikicaca, why are we worse year 2? Is it because we lost players, didn't recruit to fill the holes, etc.? House should be improving but we are regressing. Time usually bears out incompetence, and House has never been anywhere long enough to prove he is the real deal. We should at least be average, and we are not. Which is the norm, and which is the anomaly, last year or this year? I hope BK has a handle on it and will take care of it. If he turns out to be the guy then great, but if not we need to make a change.

    @Pjoe If I were to rank the problems with the D this year, I would say 1. complete misuse of one of the best defensive players in the nation, 2. near complete whiff in the transfer portal at cornerback (focusing on Harris and Chestnut here, and unknown what kind of impact JK Johnson could have had), 3. failure to coach up available players at cornerback, 4. loss of Wingo and Brooks, 5. underuse of two highly regarded true freshmen (Weeks, Womack) in favor of less talented veterans.

    I would flip flop 1 & 2.

    the whiff on DBs forced us to misuse Perkins.
    Perkins in the slot as a nickel guy was probably our best coverage guy down the stretch.

    And yet we were still getting burned in the passing game, especially on 3rd down. I look at the overall impact. Perkins the cover guy took one receiver out of play. Perkins the pass rusher could potentially have taken all receivers out of play by not giving the QB time to throw.

    I agree, scheme was awful and basic technic was nowhere to be found. We couldn't tackle running backs on 3rd and forever, allowing first down runs and our pass coverage was nonexistent. We made some pedestrian QBs look pretty damn good playing House's scheme.

    You make that much money you'd best figure out something that works. Hell if nothing else huddle those bastards up schoolyard style and let the Cpt figure it out. You got 15, you cover 10, I got 8 you back there, you spy 23. The rest of you bastards hit somebody
