Is how this team looks from a physicality/juice standpoint in the 2nd half of the season.
Pittman prides himself on this being a physical football team - talks about it constantly - and it obviously was evident against Texass and A&M……and you have to be physical in this league.
After the Georgia game, Pittman said there was a lot of 1 v1, physical work during Ole Miss week and he felt it was needed in order to get better. I wonder if he has second thoughts about that? A&M, Georgia, and Ole Miss was a brutal stretch and I think our tank was empty today. We came out flat.
I also thought our play deteriorated in the 2nd half of 2020 and I wonder if the physical approach in practices played a part?
This is not a hate the coach post - I like Pittman - how can you not? Rather, it’s a question about in season, physical 1v1 work with a team thinner than most of our conference peers.
I guess it’s a fine line… you must be physical and how do you become that without impacting your play on Saturdays?
