The inexperience on defense already saw the Tigers drop one.
Without a great pass-rusher present on defense, a dynamic linebacker shutting down run games in the middle and a defensive backfield that would resemble DBU, the Tigers defense just gave its worst performance since getting thrashed by Florida in 2008.
The defensive backs committed huge errors against Georgia that were levied by poor communication and missed signal calls, and as expected, Les Miles alluded to the errors at his weekly press conference.
“Without much detail, I can just tell you that there was a signaling issue and player-to-player communication difficulty,” Miles said.
But before that game ever took place, the Tigers secondary had issues, like Jalen Collins playing poorly against UAB.
Tre'Davious White, the true freshman, was built as a potential replacement for Collins' position, but he showed his inexperience early against Georgia, giving up a first-quarter touchdown pass. From the young players learning technique to the player-to-coach/player-to-player communication blunders, the "Chief" John Chavis has plenty to work on moving forward.
