Sorry...it started with the Towson game when we let them go 80 yards on 6 plays and score a td late in the game. Next game, UF rushes for 239 yards and has a TOP advantage of 37-22. Next, USC goes 77 yards on 11 plays and scores a td with under 2 minutes to play. A&M goes 80 yards on 9 plays to score a td with under 2 minutes. Defense had trouble with Ole Myth and Clemson as well. The loss of TM7 and the mindset of the 6 juniors that left early were the major problems for the defense this year IMO
I thought they played lights out against A&M post adjustment. Even SCAR, they did pretty well. I do agree with the jist of your post though - the warning signs were there early. The lack of effort post Bama probably showed the weaknesses even more because I think the D line quit. Stopped hiding the secondary's newness.
