I don't think Weber is average. I think he's an above average back and only behind Barkley in the B1G, and that's simply because he's a frosh.
I also think the WR coaching is "fine" but it's not good. In other words, for a top 2 program in the country, it's not good enough. If you watch our route running it doesn't appear to be exceptional. There are a lot of unnecessary angles taken in our routes, regardless of whether there is a defender directly over the receiver or not.
If a receiver is running an out route they'll start running 45 degrees toward the middle of the field, then make a 45 break up field, then make a rounded 90 degree break out toward the sideline... it's no wonder why our pass plays are so long developing.
The difference the past 2 years are that Devin Smith could just run by people two years ago and last year Michael Thomas was just an exceptional fundamental route runner and has an uncle that was one of the top possession receivers the years he was in the league.
