    Stats are okay but don’t mean diddly. We walked all over Georgia but ended us on the short end of the stick on the scoreboard. We need stats and a error free game.

    I agree, we need no holding calls so our TD passes get on the board. Garcia has setteled down and is making better decisions w/ better passing. Our whole team is playing w/ more Heart. Lansing is picking up where Succup left off. Ole Miss, we have play makers and we’re willing to use them!
