Just a few things I personally would like to see this off season.
1. Braxton needs to get use to playing with no one in the backfield, right now I dont know if I can call him a "spread QB" after his 2012 preformance. Though it may have been electrifying whenever UFM and Herman wanted to really space the field with an empty backfield we saw a derp play by Xbrax. Hopefully another season in this system allows him to play out of an empty set which allows more of the "QB scrambles" that UFM was talking about and we see more potential for an aggresive aerial attack.
2. Let me start with i'm a big fan of El Guapo, but there are some thing's he just doesnt bring to the table. The ability to take the ball to the house is one of them. We lacked long run's from the RBs all season and frankly when you're a predominatley run orriented squad you're going to run into problems when you can't threaten a team with a long run. Adding Jordan Hall for another season should be the answer he adds the ability to run the sweep, off tackle, options, and screens and has enough wiggle in space to make something small into a big run. Expect to see them both in the same backfield to run the triple option and to flex them out for a missmatch but I would be suprised if Hyde gets close to the same amount of carries Hall does. Another big offseason like last year and J.Hall could be exactly what we needed in this offense.
3. The front seven needs to get in the backfield and finish, I expected big things from Withers after all of those nasty pass rushers we saw him coach at UNC and all of those Florida D-lines we saw at UF. Though we lose 6 of the front 7 there is a ton of hope. We need guys who can cause some mayhem in the backfield to step up and I think that fits the 2013 unit much better then last years squad. Lets face it this coming years D can only go up from a sub par showing in 2012, the soft coverage was often exposed from a lack of pressure and a lack of prusuit would cost us too many chunk plays. With a TON of talent awaiting their chance to play in the front seven we need someone to step up and captalize on playing time off an inexperienced unit. The sooner that happens and we get a coherrent unit the sooner we get to playing good D.
Just wanted to get some non-recruiting banter on the forum, this bowl ban is making most of us crazy! I would love to hear anything else you guys think we need to see a more improved 2013 season?
