This is going to be a very interesting week.

Like Simple Man said in his in-game live blog, we squandered early opportunities and the turnovers were devastating, especially the last one (obviously).

Positive thoughts:

  • I can, however, say that for all the flaws we have, what does that say about SC? I didn't see a huge gap in where they are and where we are. If they're the best team in the East, it ain't by much.

  • We gave up 45 points, but only lost by 3.

  • Crowell looked damn good. If he ain't the starter next week...ah, who cares. He'll get the majority of the carries and it's just Coastal Carolina.

  • Amidst all of Murray's gaffes and the sketchy OL line play, we put up 42 on a supposedly stout D.

  • As I said at the start of this, and Richt said it in his post game presser, the East hasn't been decided yet.

  • Rambo came to play today. Damn good game from him.

Negative Thoughts:

  • The turnovers were aplenty and extremely costly.

  • While others are concerned about our OL depth, I'm more concerned about our OL's play. It hasn't been very good yet.

  • Moral victories are fine for some situations, but I don't see how they can be applied here.

  • The calls for Richt's head are going to be loud this week.

Like Blutarsky said, this game shouldn't have been close and you can't lay this loss on the coaches. I saw better effort and improved play in some areas, but I saw some glaring deficiencies that need to be addressed over the next 2 games before we enter into the October grind (MS State, UT, Vandy & UF),

Bottom line, I didn't leave this game ready for heads to roll. I left with a disgusted feeling because of how we lost. We are 0-2, but we really should have won this game. We didn't deserve to beat Boise State. We should have left here with a W. I know, shoulda, woulda, coulda.

This one hurts and is going to sting for a while.
