This was a game we really missed Alex Collins

Whaley and Williams both made some mistakes trying to break runs outside when there was small creases inside. I’m not saying the OL played well, because they wilted late, but Alex was the best we had “making something out of nothing”. Not to mention how well he became at blitz pick-up.

We miss Denver Kirkland 100X more than Alex Collins.

Totally agree with this. Kirkland & Skipper against those DE’s sounds better than players with their 1st SEC start. But Collins could have helped also.

Bingo. We miss Tretola and Kirkland badly. Tretola was a great LEADER too.
