    "We came out flat" is this a trend?

    Seems as though we came out flat against Lsu, tam, and now UGA. What's the deal, why coming out flat for big games?

    That's my point, it wasn't just this game!! We have been that way against all of our big games. Why?

    I have noticed it as well but think it's more about the "business" approach we take. There's not a lot of jumping around, high fiveing, or emotion....it's just business.

    We are the dragon and Georgia had the same enthusiasm as we did in 09. It's not always us. We won in part due to their lack of mental discipline late in the game. They were spent.
    Somewhat similar to last year's game with LSU, but not as extreme.

    I didn't think we came out flat in this game. Look, we aren't going to jump out to a 21-0 lead in every game guys.

    I disagree with the entire concept of the Tide"coming out flat" against UGA. Our guys played with all the intensity at their disposal. The problem is that UGA is a very good team and every bit up to putting up both an excellent offense and defense.
    Just because we aren't able to blow out a team that is our equal in all phases of the game doesn't at all mean we "came out flat".

    It's also called feeling your opponent out and not showing too much to start.

    The only game I thought we really came out flat against was TAMU. We moved the ball early, but UGA made some big plays, and we made some mistakes. We didn't look great in any of those games, but those 3 teams are all top 10 teams with a combined record of 32 - 6.
