  3. Coach Kiffin’s thoughts from a “we suck” perspective: <ul><li>“ We played like really bad football teams </li></ul><ul><li>play. We: </li></ul><ul><li>Turned the ball over. </li></ul><ul><li>We got sacked. </li></ul><ul><li>We didn't stop the run. </li></ul><ul><li>And we didn't run the ball. </li></ul><ul><li>And we got penalties... </li></ul><ul><li>Maybe we're lucky that it wasn't worse.
