Blame a defense that gave up a bazillion points when they knew they pretty much had only one mission - stop Braxton Miller. Instead, they let Miller get a career high in rushing or something like that. I'm not going to bother look it up.

There's not much to say after this one, is there?

63-38. Someone on twitter said that this is the most points ever given up by a ranked opponent in a loss since 1936. I don't buy that (we'll check later), but it certainly was a ball of suck.

You can blame Taylor Martinez for three interceptions, but you'd just be blaming Taylor Martinez.

And then you could blame Barney Cotton, and you'd just be blaming Barney Cotton, although you could wonder about some of the blocking.

You can, however, blame a defense that gave up a bazillion points when they knew they pretty much had only one mission - stop Braxton Miller.

Let it hang out, man.
