The bad timing of it all

Saturday's game couldn't have come at a worse time.  If we had Kentucky this week, the team could forget last week and move on.  The process of preparing for another game can help get over the ugly, humiliating, and despicable actions of Saturday.  Instead, it's a bye week.  Now that may be a good thing for healing up say Jarvis Jones' injury or any other nagging ailments that could use some rest and rehab.  But in terms of mentally, it gives the team a week to sit and stew.  There's no game planning for Saturday, no shift of focus to the next opponent, nothing.  Just reminders of how bad that game was from anyone and everyone they see, reminders of how poorly they played, and how poorly their "supporters" reacted. 

But that was just one game.  And how they respond this week is a huge thing.  Does the team sit and stew, letting the pain fester in to something worse?  Or do they get pissed off, and like Timmy Tebow, vow to play harder and push themselves harder than we've ever seen the rest of the season?  Do they come out against Kentucky, Florida, Ole Miss, Auburn, Southern, and Tech to prove how Saturday was a fluke and not the real them?  Aside from Florida, those are all winnable by double digits games.  What team comes out of Saturday?  It's a shame we have to wait until the end of the month before finding out the answer to that question.

  1. As much as people tease Tebow about things like that pledge...


    I would love it if any of our players cared that much about winning. Or hell, if our head coach cared that much.
