I would give the defense a C grade. They gave up alot of points and were shredded by Georgia but that was early in the season with a retooled defense.
However there was no excuse for allowing Ole Miss to drive down the field and beat us. The Rebs don't have the studs on offense that Georgia has.

I support Miles but he is being paid very well. He shouldn't be given a raise just because other coaches are being paid more.
Any raise should be based on merit in my opinion, such as winning championships.

The top 15 of the latest AP poll before the bowl games is in parenthesis. I am using the AP poll because there will not be another BCS poll and the AP selects a National Champion. The team in front of the parenthesis is where I believe they will end up(this doesn't mean I agree with this).:

Obviously Jennings is the key.
I think Georgia is ranked too low. They have about 17 starters coming back and Mason is a really good QB. Like us, their defense must be better or they will have a similar season.
Noone has commented on Florida at 23. I'm not sold on Muschamp. Yes he did win 11 g...

Iowa Fan, please excuse some of the childish responses here. I don't know why some our of fans can't take constructive comments from opposing teams.
Not making excuses, but I was there in 2005 and the team and fans were down from the departure of Saban to the Dolphins. I stayed at the team hotel ...

LSU is going to the Cotton Bowl.
If FSU and Ohio St play in the title game, the winner of the SECCG goes to the Sugar and Bama goes to the Orange. The Cap One will take SC because they will be ranked higher than the loser of the SECCG. The loser of the SECCG goes to the Outback, LSU to the Cott...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Here are the facts about the SEC's bowl tie-ins & LSU's bowl chances - BigTiger80 on 11/26/13 at 4:59 am|
Another point about Georgia is they aren't even ranked. LSU is 15th in the polls and the Cotton/Outback/Cap One will take a ranked team first. Yes, they aren't obligated to do so but you better believe the TV networks will not be happy about an unranked team being in one of those bowls when they cou...

It's going to be a long season in '13 if our offense doesn't improve significantly. I just don't see it getting much better with Stud/Miles.
The defense is gutted and won't carry us like it did in 2011 and most of this past season....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Let's look at next year - BigTiger80 on 1/1/13 at 12:46 pm|
I see at least 3 losses among Bama, UGA, Fl and A&M. We probably lose another one among the rest.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Last night was a great example of the dangers of running a simpleton offense - BigTiger80 on 1/1/13 at 12:34 pm|
All 3 games were lost because of the offense. Yes the D gave up the winning TD to Bama but we had a chance on offense to get a first down and put the game away just like last night.
Alleva effed up by not demanding as part of Miles' new deal that he have a separate OL and OC coach.
We've had ...
