Thread: Tomlin is our QB at this point

    Never mind the Florida game. Here's a summary of our P5 games since 2014:

    -Close losses to NC State, Orange bowl Georgia Tech team, and an okay UGA team.
    -Blowout shutout loss to WVU with our #1 QB suspended
    -10 and 11 point losses to a bad Ole Miss and one of PJ's better Tech teams on a year with a good roster and awful coaching.
    -Blowout loss to top-10 Auburn team with a team of ours that was headed for 0-12, a big loss to Indiana that was statistically not as lopsided as the score showed.
    -Blowout loss to a Clemson team that beat 5 ACC teams worse than us and had a veritable NFL defensive line when we were still early in our season trying to break in the OL.

    I don't know how you can look at that and come to the conclusion that Minnesota is an automatic loss. We've basically played 7 teams that aren't legit top-10 teams. Three of those games were close and we just didn't come out on top, three of them were under Tyson Summers, and West Virginia outcome is definitely not flattering but it's the oddity on the list.

    And people like Buzz will bring up analytics as the reason we aren't as good as we appeared last season, but we won the YPP in the NC State game, had the second-highest YPP differential in a loss ever in the 2014 game against Tech, and had a small negative YPP differential against UGA while winning the turnover battle.

    Minnesota is a game that we can win if we are healthy, hungry, and our offensive line allows our speed to show up and show out. GATA19

    If you don't think we can beat Minnesota then I do not know what in the world you are on. Clemson didn't score on us until halfway through the second quarter, we beat a top 25 App State team that won 11 games. Minnesota got blown out by an 0-6 Nebraska team. They beat Georgia Tech in Paul Johnson's last game ever which the offense didn't even seem to show up for.

    Buzz Killington - If we score more than one offensive TD against Minnesota I'll never post again.

    Don't make a promise like that. We actually like your GrumpyKat posts. Please don't leave.
    We surly want BUZZ to come back after the Gopher game!

I like all of you are glad we won it, but it wasn’t just us punching them in the mouth.
    Did you not see what happened when they tried to pass for a TD like twice in a row in the first quarter? Nearly picked twice. And even in the end.. BATTED DOWN!

    Minnesota QB hurt, that is very helpful. Let's see when Vegas comes out with the spread, let's see after our first two games and their first two games, then we will have an idea of what we are up against and what Minnesota is up against.

    The difference is on WVU, they were worried about us, so much so they spent an unusually large amount of their pre season preparing for our offense and latter were less than stellar against the rest of their schedule. They won the battle but lost the war that year

    Wasn't their DC brought over from Crapp State a few years before?

    Let's also not forget that several times during the WVU game, we looked like the Keystone Cops. I can think of 2 times Upshaw should have gone to the house but instead slipped on his own. The other issue there was WVU seemed to be able to score on us at will with the deep ball and we had zero ability to stop it.

    That said, don't think LSU isn't getting ready for us. Coach O isn't interested in a repeat of the Troy game. The fact that he mentioned it during SEC media days tells me all I need to know about that.
