Dr. Z's Vandy Reax: Whipped by Nerds
The speech I would have given after the game.
Saturday we saw a team with much less talent come out and take it to an Auburn team with 4 and 5 star players. That speaks volumes.
We are looking at the worst Auburn football team in modern history folks, including the Barfield era.
Gene Chizik, only one and one half years after guiding Auburn to a national title, has guided this proud program off a cliff. What I saw on Saturday was a team with no confidence, no will to fight, no rudder.
We saw silly mistakes in the special teams again destroy field position.
We saw a defense that lapsed and the beginning of both halves, giving up touchdowns that made the difference in the game.
We saw an offense so misdirected that it made us laugh, to keep from crying.
It gets harder every week to write about this disaster. I feel like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. Over and over, it's the same damn day.
