AUBURN, Ala. —Kirby Smart appeared remarkably calm to some Saturday night at Missouri, even as his then-No. 1-ranked team appeared to be melting down.

    I've been critical of the dawgs, but I will readily admit, if there's a coach built for difficult times, it's Kirby Smart. He'll push hard to get them in the right spot. They are such a young team. That Oregon win jumped them to the stratosphere - and they aren't there yet. They need time to grow into a great football team. Kirby will push them there. Hopefully, they can grow and improve before UT.

    Drinkwitz needs to have that team playing like that every week for the sake of his job. Their D put alot of pressure on Stetson and stopped the run well until the 4th when UGA's depth got them. Crazy it was the same team that got boatraced by k state.

    Why did it take till half time to widen our gaps to take advantage of our run game?

    “I guarantee you in Athens, Georgia, they will improve as a football team, and they will be read Saturday.”

    That’s exactly what I thought after a very poor performance against Kent State. Didn’t happen. The Dawgs were not only not ready, they were poorly coached, especially in the O line. We are definitely missing Coach Luke. This O line is very talented, but appear confused on many plays. That’s coaching.

    And I think as Pruitt said, sometimes the results are due to your game plan doesn't work out as well as you thought it would.

    And/or like JBMDawg46 just said, the OL coaching may be an issue that needs addressing ASAP. We may just need to coax Luke out of retirement for next year. Hope not. We have had 2 great ones leave...they aren't all great and you might not can always get one that is and have to settle.

    Sometimes coaches just need to simplify things. Maybe that is all this is and Kirby makes sure that it happens.

    Just win baby!

    Too many Couch Potatoes with too much time on their hands.

    While most of us just chuckle at these Wannabe Offensive Geniuses, some of these young men read this garbage.

    Just post your resume of SEC Coaching experience so we can understand how your years of doing this has paid off for the rest of us to be enlightened by your brilliance! Yes, that's what the vast majority of the rest of us thought!
