Rod smith was shelved primarily for not holding onto the ball. It's hard to capitalize on your talents when you've put the ball on the ground so many times, it's all about trust. He has to regain that trust and be dependable first.

"His preferred style of play has resulted in two national championships and two undefeated seasons. Those high marks came with three different teams – Florida, Utah and Ohio State."

Should've read..... three undefeated seasons not two.

Urbs had an undefeated season coaching Utah in 2004.

Great post Ramzy. I think that these are thoughts that a great many of us have expressed over the last two excruciating loses.

There is a lot to be said about not over thinking it. I'm from the old school thought of keep it simple stupid, so getting fancy and cute on the football field has never resonated with me. I can't say that we would have definitely won those games if we continued to feed Hyde, but I sure would've liked our chances!

Simply no. Not satisfied, right now. Albeit a successful season @ 12-2 (which is nothing to sneeze at), I had higher expectations for this year's team which I'm sure everyone else in our locker room did too. I am though very proud of the players for giving their all on the field for our enjoyment.

I should feel more satisfied right now. I know though after more time to reflect on what this team has accomplished and what the future has in store next season these feeling's I'm sure will change for the better.

Everyone points to the defense not playing up to par, but our D has played this way for the past two seasons. Our run defense has been a bright spot and solid all year but our pass defense is abysmal. Well outside of the obvious defensive save where a corner has stepped in to save the day (I'm looking at you Mr. Powell).

Our lack of offense in the 4th quarter is what sealed our demise. That's directly attributable to horrible play calling.

Well my thought is this, if you were the OC...wouldn't you make a play call that is tried and true that puts the ball in Hydes hands where you know for sure that he will at least break tackles if someone misses an assignment and shit Hyde could get stopped and fall forward for 2 yards vs. running a play that they ran in practice and not game tested. With an empty backfield they know Braxton is running...no element of surprise there. 

Still a bad call in my book for the situation.

Well that sucked. This feeling sucks. Not sure why Hermann would be so predictable in play calling.We have no intermediate and underneath pass game? I can't believe that, Brax has that skill set.

The front four played their asses off, the pass defense...fuck it I won't even bother. Damn man!
