But compared to the rest of the SEC and the country, our offense wasn't historic at all.

[quote]but I don't think it matters because this is Leonard's team and it will be for the next 2 years[/quote]
If a RB doesn't have a good O line and a good QB with a threat of passing, the defenses will stack the box. Even great RBs can't run effectively against that. ...

[quote]Blake Sims is a fifth year Senior. [/quote]
Those examples were meant to show that players can play, regardless of experience.
Experience-wise, Sims was effectively a freshman. He had no meaningful snaps before this year, and had a brand new OC and a new play book (gasp) to learn.

[quote]But he's also a true sophomore in his first year as a starter in the SEC. [/quote]
I'm so sick of this excuse. Good lord, he's been in the system two full years. Had a month of practice last year as the starter in the bowl game, and then all of spring and fall camp and this season.

without drastic change/improvement on offense, and especially at QB (which I don't expect), we'll go 9-3 or 8-4. ...

This is nonsense.

This line of thinking is infuriating. "It might not work, so I won't even try." Recipe for failure, not only in football but in life.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Can the SEC Run the Table in Bowl Games? - atltiger6487 on 12/14/14 at 7:25 pm|
Of course talent makes a difference, but most often we see bowl games determined by which team wants to be there. The teams that want to play do so with intensity and energy. Other teams sleepwalk through the game.
That makes the most difference, and it's very hard to predict which teams will s...

Agreed. This isn't the NBA, with aging bodies and 100+ games! including playoffs. College kids can play a whole lot of minutes. ...

Sure, I'd rather win a bowl game than lose one.
There are 38 bowl games (plus one NC game), so that means 76 out of 128 teams are in a bowl. Unless it's one of the upper tier bowls, it just isn't much to hang your...
