    Will we EVER close the talent gap enough to compete in this rivalry? It's getting really embarrassing.

    If we don't score a TD on the opening drive we need to let Vad play the rest of the game. Not because he is playing better the Tevin, but the experience he would get is probably the only positive thing that will come out of this beating.

    Nope. Seems to be too much academic pride.

    Sadly, I think you're right all things considered.

    Do y'all think that ANYONE from the Hill is watching this disaster? I don't think so, and even if they are...they don't care.

    Yes. We need a D and a starting qb.

    Not that tevin isn't better than Vad this game, he just isnt starter quality.

    We need a 1st half dc. We'll see how we do in the second half. We have made adjustments inthe past. But expect Ritch to run,run, run the clock out.

    Why would a group of people that do not like sports watch it?

    Nope. Best dc in the game couldn't cover up the lack of talent, effort and desire.

    Yes it is clearly the fans' fault. Haha.

    There are so many problems with GT football--just look at the many posts by the brain trust here. Lack of fan support is one of those. I think it starts with getting the best athletes and we face huge hurdles there: curriculum, local media bias, entrance requirements, offensive system (way over stated imo), recruiting against the SEC, etc.

    I hope there is some hurt pride in our locker room and that motivates our kids to play above their heads for the next 30 minutes.

    Still doesn't solve the fact we don't have the talent to compete. Trying doesn't put but 7 more points on the board at most.

    The academic pride is too strong period and we will win 1-2 out of 20. It's embarrassing and a joke.

    Yes, we need a DC, but more importantly we need a MIRACLE WORKING RECRUITER.

    I don't think the problem is with the Hill as much as it is with the NCAA. The mingoloids have players that walk in to a McDonalds and can barely make out the words on the 99 cent menu. The problem is with the bubble that is D1 football. This is not intercollegiate athletics.
