That was fun to watch.

Their cocky fanbase deserved this. All of the chest thumping about their bowl victories against 2nd tier teams and now look at how they performed vs a real elite team.

well....after watching the offensive play calling this year I wouldn't be defending them as you do. Moreover, this debate undermines any argument for them knowing how to use our weapons. How? Well...they used Braxton Miller in such a way that allowed defenses to "just key on the run". I'd expect more from "our 3 time national championship coach". Turns out, he's human and doesn't all make the right calls.

The coaches said he was healthy enough to throw. Braxton said the same. If you don't think that's true then you think our 3 time national championship coach is a liar.

eh when did I say he doesn't know what he's doing? I did say that our coaching staff wasn't that good with the playcalling this year. That's a fact and it came to bear during the Sparty game. every coach makes mistakes...even Saban, Meyer, Carrol, and Tress.

I guess he puts on his practice shoulder when he throws outside of games. The fact is, our coaches and Braxton said he was healthy enough to throw.

That reason isn't clear to any of us. until it's confirmed, your assumptions aren't any better than the next. As I said before, the coaches said he is healthy enough to throw...thus I'm less inclined to believe your opinion.

Fair enough.

The coaches not allowing him to throw doesn't mean you are correct. It could be because they sucked at playcalling (and they did), that they didn't trust him to make the proper read, they didn't trust their receivers to get open and for him to make a good pass, or that they never got around to it.

Moreover, , the coaches said he is healthy enough to throw. You can do a quick google search and read statements from Both Urban and Braxton.  they don't need him to throw deep downfield. Any athlete has more than enough time to attempt a Tebow pass.

Colt McCoy didn't wash out of the NFL because he injured his arm. He washed out because he was a good college QB and his skills didn't translate to the league. The point I wanted to make was that running ATHs get hurt all the time, as do defensive players, offensive lineman, and heck even unlucky bystanders lol. The game of football is dangerous. If Braxton was as fragile as you say then he should be sitting in the stands or holding a clipboard. Like I said, he throws the ball more in practice and on his own and yet his arm didn't fall off. It's one or two passes a game....we aren't asking him to run the Baylor offense.

I guess I'll just have to ask Colt McCoy or any other FB player that's been hurt from a hit.

I don't think throwing the ball once or twice per game is gonna hurt Braxton's arm. He for sure throws the ball by himself and perhaps even in practice. If it were that fragile then he wouldn't be playing. I also doubt hurting his shoulder again would hurt his draft stock. He's not going to play QB in the NFL

Meyer is not considering personnel changes on his offensive line: "We just have to get some things figured out."

We are doomed lol.

On a serious note, I hope they really really motivate Chase Farris this week. I can't imagine the coaches aren't seeing the same thing we are seeing. It's not a one game thing either...it's been consistent. If we don't want to change personnel...then perhaps...we move him on the inside and move someone else on the outside? *shrug*

Nice first article!

----------

Vonn Bell, Tyvis Powell and company must practice good eye discipline by reading their run/pass keys.

welp. Let's just hope they've learned from their previous mistakes.
