Outside of one poorly contained kickoff return, the first half yesterday was about as dominant a performance as a Dawg fan could ask for. Behold, the stats!
That’s so beautiful, I could cry.

and Fromm said he would like to have those 3 back (incompletions)…..don’t remember an ass beating this bad, coulda/shoulda been a lot worse. But got to put those backups in.
Thought Davis played his best game of the year, had a sack/tackle for loss & it was beautiful. He played his position with 2 blockers on him, contained, contained, then shed those mofos like a bad cold. As soon as he saw the QB committing to the run, the big boy tracked him and sacked his ass.
Ledbetter also played out of his mind, all over the field. The defense is growing up before our eyes….just the right time. The offense, I have no words…don’t want to jinx it.
Man, I agree. I have to admit I was really disappointed we let their offense score and the rushing get to 100 yards.
I know it won’t do to rub it in Ray Goff style, but man, I want to.

Malik Herring was a man possessed.
yes he did, Mary Persons HS….they have some good ones come out of that school. Looks like he has put on some size also, gonna need it for Bama.
He was all over the field.
Jordan Davis has all America written all over him,
USCjr got their cannon shot. We got our nose tackle. I’ll take the nose tackle every time.
I sent that same screen shot to my son and said, in Munson mode, “that time of possession is killing us”.
What’s really neato is CPJ expects his offense to also be his defense in games like this. Third quarter was successful because they ran it out: “And we did a decent job of running out the third quarter, but we didn’t get any points out of it.” LOL. He’s the worst.
38-7. Just like last year.
Kirby was lamenting our 2:00 offense, saying apparently it’s more important to gain 1 yard than to get out of bounds (Nauta). Reporter asked what Nauta’s explanation was at the time and Kirby said he didn’t know because he was so mad at the time. GATA, indeed.
Yeah, if Nauta goes out of bounds we have an extra 1-2 sec + the TO. Clearly a non-issue in that game, but we all know what it means when it matters.
Nauta’s done that multiple times this year. I get he doesn’t catch a ton of balls so he probably wants to maximize any opportunities he gets, but getting out of bounds is more important in those situations that 2-3 more yards.
I loved the halftime interview with the genius. They asked him what changes he planned to the offense and he said the whole problem was the defense. lol. 66 yards of offense and it’s all the defense? Genius my ass.
Well, if the D had stopped us from scoring, technically, they would be winning 7-0.
They wouldn’t have even been 7-0. They got that 7 off a kickoff return after we scored a TD. So at best they would be 0-0 going into half. Meaning the offense was still a problem.
18 first downs and only three third down situations. Converted two of the three and the one we didn’t convert, we converted on 4th down. Beautiful.
It was beautiful. Watching their sideline – outside of the kick return – their biggest celebration was the non-call for targeting. They had nothing.
FWIW, was really hoping we’d keep the pedal down and turn Fields loose.
Also, can we get a Schultz article celebrating the Genius for shortening the game with that 9 min 36 yard drive then rolling out trick plays against the 3rd string in garbage time??
I was actually really happy, they ran 9 minutes off the clock (and still didn’t score). Once the outcome was obvious, I was ready to hurry up and get off the field with no injuries so we could start preparation for this week.
It is isn’t it.
It’s just beautiful. Isn’t totally dominating your hated rival fun?
Confession time: I was the one who said we would win but not cover as we struggled due to our defense being too soft for that type of running attack. I couldn’t have been more wrong. We were “blow you away” dominant in all phases of the game. Very impressed, proud of the way our guys came into the game and focused on the job at hand.
My only downside to yesterday was Kirby not responding when we showed we were backing off the offense and wouldn’t run it up. I think that was fine but when they went all out to score, we should have let our guys play the whole offense and counter. Fields could have used the extra work, it was justified anyway. If they don’t want peace, let the battle continue. Mason did the same thing in the Vandy game. Our guys should be rewarded for getting it done and not have to have their hands tied behind their back for a quarter and a half. PJ is a punk and an arse, let him eat shit and die.
