Is anyone else extremely confused/frustrated with our offensive game plan? Urban says he wants to make more of an effort to get Devin Smith more involved, but play after play we throw the ball to Corey Smith? He just isn't ready for that many targets. Where are our senior wideouts? Why are they hardly involved? Urban says he wants to get our tight ends more involved. Were they even targeted once? Jeff Heuerman is a serious weapon, especially in the red zone, and he doesn't even get a look. That's one thing I was looking forward to when Meyer took over. He used his tight ends religiously at Florida, ran pop passes and screens and really got them involved. If our offensive line blows, throw quick hit passes. Throw slants, running back bubble routes, wr screens. Is it really that hard to figure out? I also think Curtis Samuel is ready to take over as the starting back, he has showed the most promise thus far.
I agree that Delany has done a great job for the conference when it comes to revenue, but his major failure has been conference expansion. Sure it's nice to spread the B1G brand to the East Coast, but adding Maryland and Rutgers when Florida State, North Carolina, Kansas, Mizzou, and maybe even Notre Dame were on the table was a real eye opener. Adding more "weak" schools isn't helping the national perspective, and Delany just comes across as a weak commissioner. Just look at the SEC. Mike Slive hardly lets the NCAA touch his schools, but Delany runs and hides when anything comes up at his biggest schools. I do believe the direction of the conference starts at the top, and a more assertive commissioner could definitely help change the direction the conference is going.
