The coaches and the team may not be happy with their collective effort against Vanderbilt, which, I might add, still led to the ‘Dores being held to 236 yards on the day, but I can’t say I’m going to get too worked up over stats like these:
- 3.89 yards per play, good for first in the conference and fourth nationally
- 10 points per game, good for first in the conference and second nationally
I assume you know what first in the conference means. If the Dawgs are on par with Alabama in those defensive areas, I’ll take that in a heartbeat.
“We made a lot of mistakes on the defensive side of the ball, so we have to get in and correct those,” said inside linebacker Roquan Smith, who had a game-high seven tackles. “We didn’t play to our standard, but we got better throughout the game.”
I’m glad Roquan’s not satisfied, though.
