Nothing wrong w/ the Q run, but Meyer uses it as a crutch a little bit too much. He was that way when Braxton was the QB.
I like how everyone was nit picking Cardale's throw's in the playoffs--i.e."Well, Devin Smith had to adjust a little bit on that TD throw". Did those people see Barrett miss that pass to Braxton?
Anyways, I am supporting JT. I think, after the Noah Brown and Corey Smith injuries, you have to go with the guy that can run the option better. Not to mention the O-Line is really struggling w/ pass pro
You're not really getting a numbers advantage against 0-deep.
Joking aside, last year in the playoffs we saw Cardale Jones doing a fake QB draw many times. For the past month, QB draws have been called 95% of the time in 3rd and medium situations. I thought the coaching staff was sandbagging and were saving the real plays for Sparty, but apparently not. Feigning a QB draw then passing would have worked
The next time, on third and five, run a QB draw.
You would think that Nick would be more chill this week since they are only playing Charleston Southern
Clone two or three more!
Like the Red Rifle BB gun comments
Yeah, Lincoln Riley is one of the gurus that I was talking about. Riley was probably not interested in coming here and running Meyer's offense.
I know Warriner and Beck have worked together and the fact that Meyer said that he did not want a "guru"; he wanted someone to run his offense. However, I wonder if the fact that Meyer had to promote Warriner was a factor in not hiring a guy like Lincoln Riley.
BTW, I am not on the "fire Beck" wagon yet. Last Saturday, we were extremely vanilla on purpose.
Snappers is a cool spot. Probably the best recommendation for this guy.
I am having a difficult time finding this one dive bar that I used to go to around Pearl City. It may no longer be there.
I haven't lived in Hawaii since 2005. My ex was from Cali but she got up at 6 am to watch the TTUN with me one year. A lot of fun drinking before 7am
I can understand waiting until the Mich St or TTUN game to have Braxton throw it. I don't understand the lack of running the read option. Maybe it is b/c Meyer feels that Braxton does not get enough reps in practice w/ Elliot or Samuel.
BTW, I think we need Marshall to keep concentrating the outside and punt returning. We are pretty thin on the outside.
Injury to Jones and we are down should be the only situation
The guy can move pretty well. Here are some of his junior highlights.
Herman told Meyer that he found the next Alex Smith when recruiting Burrow. I have only watched some YouTube highlights and a few scouting reports but he looks somewhere in-between Smith and JT as a runner. Burrow does a very good job with his reads in the option game, also. However, it is probably a good thing that he will get a couple of S&C off-seasons before really getting a chance to be the starter.
With the Run/Pass option, a defensive player is being read. It is the same as a run option, but the QB will throw the ball instead of just pulling it and running it. The best example would be a dive/screen play
Place to watch it online?
He'll probably have to transfer, if that is the case. An extremely athletic QB with a mediocre arm can succeed in Meyer's offense, but Gibson does not seem like the type of guy who is ready to take a leadership role.
He forgot eggs.
Seriously, how do these guys get to that level and look at this scouting report then think that he is going to be anything other than a great deep threat and gunner. Most of Smith's weaknesses can be coached up, but he is kind of limited to be a deep threat. Thin hips usually tends to equal good straight line speed but a lack of functional strength and lateral movement.
Chan is making excuses. Like I said, you can coach up some of his weaknesses, but who draft Devin Smith other than to have a deep threat that will compliment your possession receiver?
BTW, Devin Smith would look good stretching the field for AJ Greene and Eifert
Yep. Alex Smith is still a starter in the NFL. Smith would have had a better career, if coaches would have done what Carolina did with Cam Newton and just added more pro-style to what he was already doing.
Every college teams is going to have some busts, but I don't see Smith being a bust yet. Yeah, Smith has to work on pretty much everything but the deep routes, but isn't that something to work with??
The offense is better suited for J.T. than Cardale in terms of personnel. 1) No proven deep threat 2) Deeper at H-Back than outside receivers not named Thomas. H-Bs naturally get more involved w/ the option
With Urban Meyer determined to continue working Braxton Miller and Curtis Samuel into the offense, will forced touches derail the momentum the offense has found under Barrett's steady hand and leadership?
I would think that, with more run option and run/pass option plays being called w/ J.T., that the H-Bs would naturally get more touches in the game.
