So, what has happened?

I wanted to ask this question to the DTN Nation because I really have no answer to this. I don't get into deep statistics and play-by-play breakdowns of performances like Seth, London, and other more talented contributors here. So I pose the question...what has happened?

Here are the brief facts: 1) We had a record of 5-2 with a win over the #3 team in the country. 2) We were a blocked FG for a TD and a pick six away from beating A&M and K-State (i.e., two plays away from being undefeated). 3) Our defense had improved and our offense was productive.

Then...1) Our defense couldn't stop anyone. 2) Our offense couldn't score on anyone. 3) We have been outscored 159-33 in three games, including the worst loss on the scoreboard in school history.

We are...1) Now in danger of having the first losing record in 16 years. 2) Not being bowl eligible for about as long. 3) One home win in two years. 4) And, our program is in much worse shape than Tuberville found it in when he arrived.

I've thought about injuries or schedules or changes on the coaching staff or talent. But I can't put my finger on what the issue, or issues, really are. I almost refuse to believe that Tuberville can't coach this team to a better record. But as they say, you are what your record says you are.

So, I ask for your help. How could we have had such a sudden turn? What has happened?
