Auburn inexplicably lost to the Wildcats for the first time since the Beatles were together putting out hits. If this was basketball it would have been understandable. Not to take anything away from Kentucky they played a heck of a game. Randall Cobb is a great player, but Auburn did more to hurt themselves in this game than Kentucky did. Penalties, penalties, and more penalties derailed this team. Good teams don't make mental mistakes in abundance like Auburn did Saturday night. Ben Tate can't carry the team by himself.
I think Todd's arm is shot. He was underthrowing recievers all night long on middle to deep passes. You aren't going to beat to many SEC defenses with screeens and swing passes all night long. He is still having a pretty good season but with each game his arm gets weaker and weaker. Of course he still hasn't had a bye week yet to rest his arm. Shoulder problems are never good for QB's and he has off season shoulder surgery two seasons in a row. When the season started he was able to hit middle to deep passes that right now are being under thrown. He still hasn't turned the ball over much so he is making good decisions more times than not, but eventually that lack of arm strength is going to lead to some pick 6's against the better defenses.
The defense is still paper thin, and as the nicks and scrapes get to be more and more the defense is probably going to get worse and worse. They are still one win away from bowl eligibility so this is still an improved team over last year. I think it may be time to start thinking about putting Neil Caudle or Barrett Trotter in at QB because Todd's arm isn't going to get stronger as the season wears on its going to get weaker.
