Already blown my projected score, but we're still in this thing. But for some critical mistakes, could be different right now. Pass defense needs a bit of a tweek or it could get ugly later on. Come on SHD's, don't abandon ship yet!!!

Stupid penalties and a terrible idea to go for it on our side of the field and we are up 10 or more. Settle in for the ride. Gonna be a good game.

If Samford had taken advantages of all of our penalties so far, we'd be in a big hole.

It's a grinder game- usually a good thing for us, since they can't seem to get their offense in rhythm.

Hope that's the case today.

Any chance we will see Newman? Or is the confidence of Goodson the issue. And I can't recall whether y'all said Butler or Goodson and was the better passer.

If this was a late hit, I have no idea what the hell the halftime talk was about. Possibly we need more penalties?

We could not possibly make more critical errors on penalties than we have in this game.

The majority have stymied a positive offensive or defensive play.

Our ball security has been great- our play discipline is another matter.

We should be up by 21pts!
Way too many mental errors!

This is sad. We got our hopes pretty high, but this is not impressive. Samford seems to have our number, and they probably aren't even in the top three in the conference.

Brandon Goodson played a great game.

Penalties killed us, as well as dumb playcalling.

Once again, that's on coaching.

I'm sick and tired of this.

Another close loss in Birmingham.

We committed 11 penalties for 111 yards due to undisciplined play.

Double the time of possession; 291 yards rushing with an average of 4.7 yards per carry;
over 100 yards passing; 9 of 18 3rd down conversions; 2 of 3 in 4th down conversions.

This is a game we should have won.

Not used to seeing such poor discipline throughout a game- don't like it.

yep. it all comes down to penalties and discipline.

I don't like the play call on 4th and 2, and it looks to be the difference in this one

Penalties and undisciplined mental errors are certainly not on coaching in any form or fashion. And THAT is what killed us today. Welcome to the mediocrity that is our program in recent years. Doesn't help when we are playing our 3rd string QB. How's that full go tackling in preseason scrimmage looking now?
Defense needed help today and didn't get it.
I guess we aren't as good as some of us would like to think. Samford is the best club we have played since Ole Miss.....and we didn't get it done.
I can take getting beat....but we lost it today. Nobody to blame but us. Maybe a few hills will get some minds right before next week.
