  1. You are correct, however, I think it will take a bit of time for that to occur. I am banking on the fact that Beamer will have the ship headed in the right direction before that happens. However, I can't really blame penalties on the coaches. Any coach, regardless of how bad he is, isn't going to encourage players to get penalized. That falls firmly on player's shoulders. Playcalling is coaching, but execution is players. We have years of undisciplined Muschamp training to weed out.

  4. Should we highlight pissing in a trough, rubbing up against sweaty drunks, the seats that are made for Japanese midgets, the high cost of concessions, the high cost of tickets and parking, or the incredible amount of time that it takes to go to a game? I'm being facetious, of course, but all of these factors come into play. I have had some wonderful times at WB, and a lot of fun, but it comes at a price. I had season tickets for years, but it was so costly, that I preferred to buy tickets for a couple of games a year. I got spoiled once by getting to watch a game in the President's Club, and that really ruined it for me. After that, sitting in tight seating, as people cross in front of you and step on your toes, just won't work anymore. I understand it's a money making operation, but the annoyance and inconvenience of it, just got to the point where it wasn't worth it for me anymore. I like to be able to sit comfortably with snacks in my fridge, a clean bathroom steps away, and the ability to pause the action when I want. Sitting at home does not compare to an electric Williams-Brice, when things are good, but I'm too old, crotchety, and set in my ways to spend that much time and money on being disappointed.

  6. Thanks for mentioning that. I noticed that Saturday, and meant to say something about it, but forgot. Yes, he is coming into his own. The play that made me really take notice of him, was when he stopped their running back from scoring with one arm. He reached out and threw him down.
  7. I have to agree. Doty has thrown some nice balls at times, but he was horrible on Saturday. I have wanted to use this year to get him experience, but if he's hurt, it's just making the problem worse. We need to play Zeb, and hope someone else learns how to play QB before next year. I know Vandy wan't rushing as many men, but once Zeb came in, suddenly the O-line wasn't letting guys through.

  12. I’m amazed at some of the stupidity that people are saying. We all had hopes that this would be a magical season, and the team would blow us all away, but we also all knew that we had a lot of problems, and it was going to take time to fix them. Our defense is worlds better than last year. Our special teams are polar opposite of what they were. We have won more games this year than last year. We should double the number of wins, maybe more, if we get lucky. Our offense is a bad. I don’t understand why some people want to bench Doty and go with Zeb. He won’t be here next year, and in a growing and learning year, Doty is gaining valuable playing time. He has a hurt foot, so he’s not 100%, not to mention, he usually has D-linemen all over him. When he has had time to throw, I think he’s done a great job. Our receivers drop balls frequently, but some people want to blame Doty. I don’t get it. But the most important thing I have seen on the field is that this team hasn’t quit. They continue to fight and try, which is a whole lot better than the crap we’ve seen over the last few years. Beamer can’t fix in one year, what Muschamp destroyed over several years.

  15. I don't know if I'd consider beating Auburn a signature win. I just don't think they are that good, but I'll take every win we can muster. Beating Clemson wouldn't be quite as satisfying as it would have been in their prime, but I would love to see that, because I'd set up a lawn chair somewhere here in the upstate, and eat popcorn, and watch their heads explode.
  16. This is where we need help. I'm never going to turn down better players, but Doty hasn't had much of a chance to do anything, because he constantly has defensive linemen in his face. I think he will be a really good QB, if he ever gets a little time to look down the field.
  17. Unfortunately, I see us taking a beating this weekend. Tennessee seems to be improving much quicker than we are.
  18. I see the stupid penalties, especially the taunting, showboating, etc., as a byproduct of what the team has been learning during Muschamp's tenure. They have done that for the last several years, and despite the other teaching, training, and coaching they have had with the new staff, it still comes out at gametime. It will take a while to overcome this. I think it will only happen when there are no more Muschamp recruits on the team.
  19. I like Coach Beamer, but it's like anything else; If people don't see the value in something, they won't spend their money on it. If he improves the quality of the product on the field (which I think he will, and is, it just takes time), people will show up.
  20. That sounds like a reasonable assessment, to me. I did get caught up in my own sunshine pumping optimism, and was a bit disappointed after the KY game, but having thought through it more, I’m ok with where we are headed. But I am still very pissed that we lost to KY again.
  21. Yes. I’m hauling my camper all the way out and back. I may regret it, but right now I’m looking forward to it.
  22. Jim, those are amazing. My wife and I are planning to head to South Dakota in about two weeks. I'm hoping to get some hiking in while in the Badlands.
