oh and trust me, i'm not done. i'll go over this game more when i watch it again. i'll lay into it. this loss sucks ass but i'm aiming for the offense early on. outside of the DT's/rhodes, i don't think i'm gonna find much to complain about defensively.
this loss reminds me a lot of virginia's loss last year. again, playcalling...i can't even hate on it. it was solid in the first half, it got worse in the second half but execution is what killed it. they almost looked like they were running shit for the first time. the passing game died.
i place this loss more on offense than defense. the defense held for the most part. they got stops and the gave up a couple first downs, but the offense put them in really bad spots.
anyway, this shit gets blurred. that 3rd & 9 was a bad sack. manuel is not a great QB. is fisher looking out for manuel and his pro prospects? he took advantage of clemson's awful defense....but this is who he is.
i love fisher for that reason but...people won't see this. they won't see that he's tried to develop manuel. i don't think manuel is a good QB prospect but maybe fisher is trying to showcase for scouts. there were scouts in the arena btw.
too conservative. ***** shit. i can't see how anyone blames the defense. they played like 24 plays in the first half. shutdown. did what they needed to do. they played 49-55 plays in the second half. i don't know yet....but the difference was huge. four yards a play overall.
ACC sucks. i'm not even going to defend this conference. the conference is down. as nice as that clemson win was and i consider that jimbo's biggest win....this is possibly jimbo's worst win. such a dichotomy.
still lost. there's way too much talent here to take this sort of loss. fisher took the blame on the execution side. don't know what else to say in that regard.
there's been three dominant teams this year. bama, oregon and SC. UF is on the cusp. it'd be nice to kill UF but their d-line is now looking fierce.
run the table. shit in UF's bed. nothing else to do....orange bowl maybe? win your bowl game.
anyway, fvck, i'm done.
bye week for the bucs so at least i won't get a double tap to the chest.

Good news is we play Notre Dame and West Virginia and outside of and with a lot of luck we can still sneak up into the Title talk. Bad news of course is we play those two teams, lost to Kstate and I doubt all the other teams take a massive dump to let us even sniff a championship.
Well, I was going to say if Texas has any chance of winning, they have to score on this drive, but OU just downed the ball at the one-yard line after the punt. Texas has looked beyond horrible on offense today.
