Wake-up call: Tigers learning from adversity

Easy wins are great for the fans and great for morale, but in the face of adversity, you learn the most about your players and your team. What does Jeff Scott say he learned about his team Saturday? Full Story »

Great job to the players and coaches hanging in there and sticking with the game plan for 4 quarters. As for the fans that booed the play calling and/or Kelly maybe they should learn to understand the plan and support the team or just stay home next time.

I disagree. Fans have a right to voice dissatisfaction as well sheer joy. Let's hear no more about staying home. Go Tigers

And I'll say it again. If you are not going to positively support the team keep your sorry ### at home. The kids and coaches deserve respect and support!

So let me get this straight. We can come to a message board but fans are not allowed to complain about play calling? LOL. You live in a dream world. This is college football. Get a lift and let people talk.

Talk all you want on the message boards. Don't boo the team live at the game.


Nice try.

You should pay attention to what is said before responding. Keep trolling if it makes you feel better. We are going to stomp the gamecocks again this year.

Funny thing is, these same fans have complained for years about how our coordinators "abandon the run game". Now they didn't abandon it, and they want to boo? 27 unanswered points because they stuck with the plan. Seems it ended up being the right move.

I really think our strength this year is going to be grinding the game out on the ground, wearing the other team's defense down and playing exceptional defense ourselves. When that's the plan it's not uncommon to see a low scoring first half and the stronger team taking control in the second half. Alabama has made a pretty good living doing that for years. It's not flashy and explosive but it is effective if you stick with the plan. Sure was yesterday!
GO TIGERS!!!

I watched the coaches show (I believe it was Kendall joseph that spoke on the topic) and just read the tnet article from BV and the players definitely are aware of the negativity that comes from fans. They don't need any of that. They already know when things aren't going the way they want. They need support and building up. Go tigers.

Hey... Get off your soapbox! It was just last year at this time that the coaches were telling us that everything was alright when the team showed problems in the offense. We fans could tell that the body language revealed otherwise. So don't tell the fans to keep their mouths shut when they detect bad play-calling or lack of execution. Even coaches need a wakeup call from fans every now and then to what they see. So, get over yourself!

I agree with this characterization of the 4 Qtr play by the Tigers. I wish Scott had addressed some play calling issues. I would expect the different looks he mention to have been addressed over the 1st half. Not sure they were ever addressed. We just wore them out and ran the ball down their throat.

...Apparently, A lot of the boo birds weren't around here back in the 90's. if so, they would've learned that this coaching staff has it under control, and we as a fan base should just enjoy THIS ride! THIS won't last forever, Y'all! Relax! It was a 27 point WIN!!! Go Tigers! 4-0!!!


The change in game was from ETN being handed the ball

So props to coaches for finally putting him in. I am hopeful Tiger coaches will start getting ETN ready to start and/or play a lot of downs with a lot of touches against Va Tech. Deshaun was a difference maker. ETN appears to have the "it factor" and is a difference maker. Not many more real difference makers on Offense, and KB and offensive coaches have shut down one key difference maker - Deon Cain. Being honest much of the adversity came from our quality coaches not playing and utilizing our best talent.

So work to do for Va Tech and Bud Foster who will blitz and try to confuse KB in front of 80,000 loud and hostile fans, much more so than BC. Learn from BC and go on. Go Tigers!

Group think and political correctness is for cowards. No less an authority than Dabo Swinney said BC kicked our a$$es in the first half. Considering the immense talent differentials between the teams, it would be hard to disagree with Dabo. And our coaches responded by inserting ETN which opened up passing and running lanes for KB & the team, and changed the complexion of the game.

Listen to the interviews. It's quite posssible the game plan all along was to have Fuller, Choice, and Feaster wear the BC defense down and then let the big play guy with fresh legs loose late in the game. I don't think the coaches had any great epiphany or got desperate in the 4 th quarter and decided to try Etienne. The coaches have known since at least the last scrimmage of fall practice what he can do. I believe this was the game plan all along. I trust our coaches and the game plan the whole game. Not just at the end when the plan comes together.
