Fido, you’re spot on. One thing I noticed is that Brooks never cuts back like Tyler did. Not saying that makes all the difference, but when you run where everyone is being pushed, well, there’ll be a lot of guys to tackle you. Oregon owned our Dline. And their Dline OWNED our OLine. That about sums it up. Was worried with two of our starters on the DLine out. Extremely disappointed in our OLine play.

I turned the game off midway through the 3Q and decided to do something outside with my family. This was so embarrassing. Maybe not LSU bad, but at least Wisconsin bad (2017). My thoughts:

*Any rumors about the team taking the week off after the big win over Baylor? Cause it's happened before...

*Can we use the $1.5M payment from Oregon on a new DC? Or at least a new OL coach?

*Our running game sucks bad. No push. No holes. And Brooks is way overrated. He runs the play exactly as called (tries to go through a hole even if it's not there) and gets stopped at the first defender. No burst. No bounce. No moves. No power.

*Our defense the past few years has been built on dropping 8 to prevent the pass and get turnovers. Well, we're still allowing big pass plays, getting run over play after play, and not getting turnovers.

*Injuries suck. But every team has injuries.

*Oregon stomped us. Georgia stomped Oregon. Georgia is head and shoulders above everyone else including Alabama, Clemson, etc.

*If we don't stomp Wyoming at home I'm getting worried. If we don't stomp Utah State at home I'm pressing the panic button.
