- One lesson we can learn is to try harder against easier opponents like Toledo. If we had passed more last week, then maybe we could have gotten some chinks out of our armor and won this game.
- Lesson two is be more imaginative with our play calling. The Gators plain Jane play calling is quickly becoming infamous and it gives other teams defenses a big plus when they don’t have to worry about the threat of the long ball.
- Don’t just work at using up the clock, fast play can keep a defense on their heels and gives us the opportunity to come from behind late in the game.
- No matter how awesome our defense is, they can’t beat a team once we are behind. We need a team that is capable of scoring, scoring often and scoring quickly. Did you see the pace both Georgia and South Carolina scored in their match up? As conference rivals, we have to play both of them, and neither will be beat with our defense alone!
- Go deep. On second and one go ahead and try for the end zone. If we try it enough, it will open up other possibilities and just could end with a quick touchdown. Remember the Spurrier days when we always took the ball when we won the toss and often started the game with a quick touchdown?
- Don’t settle for a quarterback who can run the ball. We need passing to compete in the SEC. Not since before Tebow’s senior year have we had an outstanding arm on our quarterback and used it to its full capabilities. We have had different head coaches, different quarterbacks, and different quarterback coaches, but we find the great throwing arm to be an elusive ghost that every other major SEC team seems to have in their arsenal.
Lets take a look at the final stats:
