They loss because of lack of heart, leadership, and talent. They were working on all cylinders in the first half but when it started to get harder, they folded. It started with the defense. While they played courageously, they became the one we have known in the past 9 games in the second half. The offense was starting to play well but whenever you start to go away from what works and put more pressure on the passing game, this is what happens. Special teams did their job mostly. Beckham showed heart (wish he would have f***in scored). Landry, Hill, and McGee also did well in parts. As I said, when it got hard, they folded. Offense and defensive lines gave up. How do you get your QB sacked on FOUR STRAIGHT PLAYS!!!! I would have been f***in pissed and ready to fight someone. All in all, it was showed that the defense was who they have been the last 9 games and the offense while played well, just couldn't overcome the lack of defense.
Now, everyone says this is Miles fault. Yes, it rests on his shoulders, but this is a collective effort, a team effort. In the end, they gave up. The felt is slipping away and instead of fighting, they just sat there and took it in the ass. No fight, no intensity, no courage. None. This is due to lack of leadership whether its from the head coach to seniors, etc. This was not found this night.
This was absolutely embarrassing both offensively and defensively. They just quit. You could see it in their eyes, their play, their fight or lack there of. It wasn't there. They knew the game was over when it was still a chance (if only a whisper); it was still there. I don't know where they go from here. We have another bye before we face Texas A&M who could very well come into Tiger Stadium and embarrass us. That would depend on this team and how they want to finish this season. The National Championship and SEC Championship aspirations are no more, but they can attempt to end the season respectively if they choose, however, they MUST show more fight and intensity then they have in this game. If Miles and his staff can't do this, then his ability to lead his team, this program into the right direction has been compromised and some sort of action must be taken into account, because it has went to acceptable, to tolerable, into downright embarrassment.
