    But the fact that we played like crap and were in the game proves the point I made in the OP.
    If we were getting mollywhupped in these P5 matchups my bp wouldn’t even rise. The fact that more often than not we are not just in the game but should’ve WON the game is just devastating for me. These are skins we should be hanging on our belts but we just refuse to take them.

    I keep running this thought through my head. NC St. GT, UGA, Ole Miss, Minnesota. Where would the program be right now if we had won a few of those?

    BVG lost 6 games by 1 score or less. Nobody talks about how "competitive" or "close" we were.
    It all boils down to this:
    At the end of the day when you sit there and look at it, the loser is the only one who talks about being competitive.

    No, it’s not. It wasn’t falling at the beginning of 2002, 2005, or at any point during the Monken era.

    People need to chill out before they get crazy and push the administration into blowing up what might still be a very good situation for GS.

    Or it could turn out just fine. People should very careful about using what they’ve seen thus far as a measuring stick.

    After Florida, NC State, Tech, UGA in 2015, Tech and Ole Miss in 2016, and Minnesota there's just no doubt West Virginia and Indiana are the exceptions and not the rule. We should compete with this team and it's frustrating that we keep falling just short.

    And I do agree that we do have a couple of problem positions on this team but all-in-all we're not being out-classed by these teams at all.
    by God we should compete we have the same amount of scholarships but recruiting P5 caliber talent is a different story. Cream of the crop go to P5's we get a shot at the rest. Again, we HAD that game yesterday as is. We didn't come up big when the game was on the line, the last 3:50 seconds. They made the plays, we didn't, that simple and IMO that's why all my frustration.

    198-205 offensive yard production(which ever one it was), is pretty poor, that certainly has to improve and this offense HAS to get more consistent.

    We also have to remember that we are on Coach #3 Since moving to FBS. Our recruiting was certainly impacted by this which creates depth issues. Our defense was gassed coming down the stretch and our d coordinator didn’t help us out with the calls on their last TD drive. Penalties, no offense in the 2nd half and turnovers cost us the game. I am sick to my stomach about the loss but we were in the game with a backup QB (who is a future star). There is much work to do and all of our goals are in front of us - the belt and a bowl game.

    On the flip side, what if Florida’s final drive ends in a TD and we lose that game just like Minnesota? Half pointed it out on another thread but it’s incredible to think that we have taken 5 P5 teams to the wire over the past 6 years and that 4 out of those 5 didn’t go our way- and that’s across multiple head coaches, coaching staffs, players. We can all think of a few plays that could have gone differently in every single one of those games where we could have been 5-0 but that’s not how it happened.

    What if we don't do what we did in the '85 NC? Maybe we're playing Valdosta and West GA in D2 today. We can what if all day long, but when we have these games served up to us on a silver platter we need to take advantage. Winning these games could've truly taken us from good to great in FBS and set us on a path like we had in FCS but we've squandered every opportunity. I'm not ready to throw the baby out with the bath water, but it's frustrating as hell knowing where we could be right now.
