1:44 left in the 2nd Quarter - Bama 21 UF 14
1st and 10 at FLA 20 Matt Jones run for 1 yd to the Fla 21 14 21 2nd and 9 at FLA 21 Matt Jones run for 5 yds to the Fla 26 3rd and 4 at FLA 26 Matt Jones run for 2 yds to the Fla 28 End of 2nd Quarter
Our defense has been absolutely shredded to this point and we are going to waste a possession and an opportunity to add points? I know Driskel hasn't been lighting it up but this is a game where our defense needs help, and of course, doesn't get it. I also realize only 1:44 on the clock but wouldn't that be a perfect time to use our new hurry-up offense? Classic Muschamp not utilizing all of the tools at our disposal, being conservative and afraid. Shocker. If you can't take a risk and actually go out and try to win a game you have no business winning anyway then you're not much a football coach.
5:27 left in the 3rd Quarter - Bama 28 UF 21
1st and 10 at FLA 35 Matt Jones run for 5 yds to the Fla 40 2nd and 5 at FLA 40 Matt Jones run for 3 yds to the Fla 43 3rd and 2 at FLA 43 Matt Jones run for no gain to the Fla 43 4th and 2 at FLA 43 Kyle Christy punt for 57 yds for a touchback
GAME OVER right there. Alabama just finished off a 16 play, 7 minute TD drive to go up by 7. We desperately needed at least a couple of first downs, if not a responding score ourselves and Muschamp goes full turtle again. Three straight Jones runs and punts. For all of the people who said getting a new OC won't matter because Muschamp will continue to dictate the offense, you were 100% right.
“I think there are some key components for our football team that aren't playing for us right now. And we're very thin in some areas. And it is what it is. I'm not making excuses, that's just the facts, and it's real. I think we've got a good staff and I think that we've got a really good football team. They're fighting their butt off this Saturday, first of all, and heading into spring. And I'm excited about that. I'm excited about this Saturday and our guys getting out and competing again."

Here's what I think about the first three games:
1. E. Michigan -- I think Muschamp actually let Roper run the whole game without meddling. He figured it was a good test and with an overmatched opponent, what did he have to lose? And that's why you saw the ball given to so many different players.
2. Kentucky -- Since it was an SEC game, I think Muschamp was much more involved, especially during regulation. The "governor" was on Roper until the last-ditch effort in the 3rd OT.
3. Alabama -- I think Roper was completely subjugated for this game, because Willie wanted to try to impress Saban that he could hang with his old boss. I'm sure he said "This is Alabama, we need to be conservative, we need to run the ball at them." I think the offensive plan we saw last Saturday was at least 90 percent Muschamp.
I think in Muschamp's mind, Roper is just one of many who he plans to throw under the bus.
Please, Bernie Machen -- end this long nightmare.
