I am proud of the Tigers, only people who gave us a chance was the team and fanss. I thought we could win and think we could have but no offense in 2nd half and Gurley is too good to keep giving the ball to and stop repeatedly.
We played well in hostile environment in 1st game of many of our players careers. Future looks very bright.
What I hate, and I mean hate is we can't seem to get back on track, fail to adjust to defense and keep trying horrible plays behind the line of scrimmage... Defense is coming, let's take some shots with 1 on 1's with young defenders who can't stay with Peake or Legget or Williams. Why do we basically quit coaching our players when things start going poorly. Looks like Georgia will make it look like they blew us out when it was actually a well played game for 3 quarters until we QUIT. Pisses me off, how can we call ourselves any good when this is a theme all to often repeated against high quality teams. Yes, we beat LSU, we beat Georgia and OSU last year but those games were always close, too close. Accountability!!!
I'm upset at this conclusion to what was a good game and turned into a embarrassment. Get some PRIDE. Pathetic ending.
Anyone who says I'm whining or not a real fan, bring your comments because I feel those who don't feel this way aren't fans at all! We need to get it together and learn how to finish a game even when things aren't going well. Getting beat by 4 TD's is not good for morale of young(or inexperienced) team, especially the offense.
Re: Georgia is better team tonight, we fought hard

We did, right up until that point in the 4th quarter where we just quit playing assignment football. I stated in my post that we got embarrassed in the 4th quarter, which is unfortunate since we played toe to toe until the 4th. I feel we were prepared, can't ask defense to stop Gurley and company continuously while the offense can't do anything. Georgia just got after us and was very aggressive while we got "conservative" as Morris admitted. Play the best players, who play with heart and don't give up when things get ugly. The freshman on this team will need to make huge impacts this year, and after last night I feel confident they will respond but highly disappointed in overall effort in 4th quarter!!
