Offense: We consistently do not take advantage of the oppositions weakness and it is nearly impossible for anybody to get in a groove. I don't know what Jimbo is really trying to do, I don't think he even does. The only less exciting offense to watch is the triple option.
Defense: The bright spot on our team, seems to have trouble getting off the field in 3rd and 4th down situations, although it's usually miscues by the offense or special teams that put them in a tough spot. This is the only part of our team that has CLEARLY improved over the past few years.
Special Teams: What a disaster. I think the coaches have completely quit on special teams. We don't try and block punts and we are at the point where if we can just fair catch a punt that's acceptable instead of fumbling. Dustin Hopkins has been solid, but there are still some misses that are a bit bothersome. Boy do we miss Greg Reid.
Coaching: 4th and 1 inside the 30 with a chance to break the game open against one of the worst run defenses and you kick a field goal? Also, was it any secret that Chris Thompson had been a little beat up? You have 4 running backs, how about using them all? For everyone wanting to see Jimbo not coach scared after the NC State debacle, this really bothered me.
Penalties: Was the officiating terrible? Yes. Did the penalties still count? Yes. 12-121 is unacceptable
Say what you will, but this does not look like a winning organization to me.

I didn't see losing football last night. I saw winning plays, one after another, nullified by clearly agenda-driven biased officiating from a conference determined to keep its best team grounded.
I have become unable to figure out what our fans think a good offense should look like. We score on everyone. We pretty much lead the nation in yards per play. WVU, the flavor of this month, and geno smith, who is supposedly 10x the QB Manuel is, got shut down the last two weeks in a way we never have.
You want to cheer for Oregon? Go ahead. How many MNCs do they have with all that offense?
They're 7-1 for the 2nd time in 12 years and 26-9 (74%) since Fisher took over; They're winning.
How many more threads do we need on last night's "loss"?
I thought we kicked Miami's ass all over the field after we spotted them 10, BTW. There are some areas to work on of course (get Greene off PR now please) but we did whatever we wanted.
7-1 with a fluke loss by 1 point, yup that's not a winning organization. We have some moronic fans!
I agree 100%
Losing brand of football? Gtfo.
You're a Bama fan at heart. Admit. You're a Nole hater.
