Everyone's riding Meyer for "predictable" playcalling but you have to look at the circumstances. Brax finished 8/21. He had number of throws to his receivers when they had single man coverage down the field. Either due to drops or deep balls fluttered just out of reach, we weren't able to convert those opportunities. And when push came to shove Urban decided to try to win the game on the ground. Which is just hard to do when you can't punish MSU for stacking the box like they did. Brax isn't an NFL QB yet (and honestly, will never be). Sparty wanted Brax to beat them with his arm and he couldn't. I don't see how this is the fault of UM's playcalling.
And despite ALL OF THIS, our offense still averaged 6.8 yds a carry against the undisputed best Defense in the country. Scoring 24 pts on Sparty is about as good as you can hope for. You just can't let a Bollman-coached offense roll up 400 yds on you.
I'm not even mad. I love Brax but he was a Tress recruit. Urban's spread qbs usually are some sort of huge monstrous Tebow/Cam Newton types who are less fragile and have cannon arms for the deep ball (ahem, Cardale). The offense will actually get better once he has his own recruits in place. And here's to hoping Fick is eased out next year and when we finally make it to the big stage again we won't be a one dimensional team.
It's just a relief not having to have nightmares about what Rapist Winston will do to Fick's D now. And we get to hopefully see the prideful SEC Elitists at Auburn get blown to smithereens by a truly dominant Seminole team. Maybe OSU even beats a deflated Bama in the Sugar as well (anyone remember Utah in 09?)
