I'll throw this sure to be unpopular sentiment out there.

Does anyone else think that the seeming lack of focus in the game yesterday, and at other times on special teams,etc, may stem from the fact that the team is on Social Media this year for the first time in years? House divided, and all that stuff....

I don’t think so. The focus in practice is practice.

Now if guys are working less on their craft because the want to play on social media that is a different story.

My goodness this stuff and the pandemic with kids though. We just had to put some serious time limits for screen time in place for our kids with this hybrid school model in MN.

A bunch of teams looked "winded" yesterday. I'm wondering if not having a regular off-season and fall camp hasn't had an affect on a bunch of teams

Anything is possible in 2020, but I think when teams are 40+ point favorites it is very difficult to perform up to those lofty standards. Hopefully our “sloppy” win will wake everyone up and we will start running the ball with authority and help out the passing game.

Clemson plays one game like this every year and this was it. They still won the game by 26 points with the worst performance of the year.
I'll trust Dabo to correct the performance issues.

I thought the performance yesterday was a hiccup,

following the massive blowout of GT last week, although I wasn't concerned about our ability to win.

We heard all week about the point spread, about the Cuse' loss to Liberty, and I imagine there was enough overconfidence to fill a dump truck.

Those kinds of burps and f@rts occur sometimes, but I'd be surprised, if you see the same next week against BC. The staff and team know what they have to do.

Yet, I smiled at a friend's remark about our game: "Your Tigers go out and have an 'off' day...and still beat the other team by 26 points!" Yes, we did...yes, we did!

"Your Tigers go out and have an 'off' day...and still beat the other team by 26 points!"

Everyone should have this kind of problem.

Having been around football for years, players and coaches some time lose focus on playing their game and playing down to their opponents. Being favored by 45 points yesterday did not help. It’s like we took a Saturday afternoon ride down the road and we just put it cruise control but realized it was not a typical Saturday drive. There were a few potholes, rough road and detours along our ride. We just had to refocus on our journey and still made it to our destination. Go Tigers!

You will not raise any unpopularity with me when it comes to social media. I blame that crap for the downfall of our society as a country. I wholeheartedly believe the players are more distracted and less focused with the access to social media.

Short answer YES I do agree with your sentiment

Hypocrite. You do realize your on social media?
Or maybe you do and are admitting you have contributed to the Downfall of society.

I think it probably has more to do with the fact that we

are dealing with 18 to 22 year old young men and, like everybody else, they can have a day where not everything is clicking. These things happen and it is not indicative of a systemic problem or anything else. The good news is that we don't have many of these "off kilter" days and yet we still managed to put 47 points on the scoreboard yesterday. There are a lot of other teams that would give their left leg to be able to score 47 points on a great day much less scoring that many points on a not so good day.

Bingo. Teenagers and young 20's guys believed they just had to show up. We had some studs out on D. Syracuse like everyone else gives us their best effort. Ball took a few off bounces. I think this is good it happened when it did. I will admit that I was getting a sick feeling in my stomach much like when Pitt beat us. We come back strong this week!

Agree. However, Syracuse used the advertised point spread as motivation and had a very attentive
practice week.

On social media! A win is a win and the mistakes made yesterday are correctable.

I think the whole team may have had Frosted Flakes as their only meal to start the day.

No, BUT I do think it’s better to be off social media.***

They have been on social media all season. This is one game. Unless something specific happened on social media, I think not.

It is a long season and the baseline stress and distraction of Covid etc will have its toll.

My son is a Soph at UNC and the crap that is 2020 is starting to get to him. I think it is a little tougher on the youngsters than us older people.

Agree

Past teams used the “social media time“ to spend more time watching film.

They need to get off of it and refocus.

Hoping yesterday will wake them up. Because that performance won’t win against ND, VT, ACC Championship, playoff, and Natty. Too much on the line to me messing around on Twitter. Save it for later...only one shot at this 2020 season!

I blame Dabo’s wearing a pink jacket and tie. Hard to have a killer mentality wearing bright pink. ??

There are SO many other differences in this season that i don't think you can just pick out one thing that may have contributed.

Yes. Absolutely. Probably not in the top 3 or 4 reasons, but it has to have been a factor. Anything that ends up being a distraction - distracts. No matter how important one thinks something is or how passionate they are - can it alter their focus on their main job? Sure.
