Just get six wins next year and we’re good to go.

You seriously can’t believe Shawn Wade is calling a press conference to announce he is returning to school…
There is nothing that points to his return.
Come on guys!

OK guys… I am happy to eat crow on this one…
Wade returning!!! HUGE!!!


I do agree with the guys that officiating was terrible. I particularly agree with Birm about a conference crew that has a horse (SEC crew) in the race doesn’t pass the smell test. I also feel that we should focus on what we could have done to not let it get to the point where the officiating could hurt us. The guys are totally correct about capitalizing on our red zone opportunities. Our play calling went conservative & we went away from the controlled passing game with tempo. Clemson never stopped that the whole game. The Wade penalty is never consistently called, as Shlages pointed out, but you don’t leave it to chance if you don’t lead with the crown of the helmet. There’s also no excuse for the Brown roughing penalty.
