The play calling was loose because the game was in hand right away. Just like there are clutch players, there are clutch coaches. I'm starting to wonder if Herman has trouble in tight games. He tenses up and his mind curls up into a conservative ball and the gameplan goes out the window. He seems to have trouble adjusting and calling the correct plays at the right time.
Simple. Va Tech isn't a very good team. Last weekend didn't prove Va Tech was a good team as much as it proved the Bucks have a ton of work to do. Both from the coaching staff to the players. I don't get the up in arms reaction to Va Tech's performance today. As Dennis Green once elegantly stated "they were who we thought they were."
I hate to agree, but I'm with you. Cincy looks like they have some big WRs, and a QB that can sling it. Let's hope Herman doesn't go Bollman on us like last week. (I know, I know, crazy to compare them....except the fact that they both have 5 plays they cycle through their entire gameplan.)
I'll drink the poo out of some Woodchuck Fall Harvest and 808. They're not my favorite, but def enjoy them. I also drink the heaviest, manliest beers around (or whatever I'm sure she calls them.) Craft beers are my favorite (varieties of stouts, porters, wheats, brown ales, pumpkin ales, oktoerfests, etc. etc., I love them all). So, all in all, your chick be trippin, brohemian.
I just clicked on the thread because I read it as 'We are H R block' and was a little intrigued.
So continuously throwing bombs down the field is the only viable option when there's poor o line play? As a coordinator, there needs to be adjustments to at least attempt to counter the immense pressure. No attempts were made. Not saying they would've been successful, but we'll definitely never know since the same four plays were called all night long.
Yes, it does. Some screens, draws, quick slants, etc. would do a hell of a lot better to offset the pressure than constantly calling read options, QB runs, and 35 yd bombs. Bad o line play was obvious, but Herman did zero to put the offense in better positions.
Spot on. Where were the RB draws? HB/RB screens, 3 yd slants???? Terribly called game. I remember feeling this exact way after several games last year. Same three plays over and over and over and over again. I'm starting to think Herman is too smart for his own good. The ONE screen they threw in the fourth was wide open for 20-30 yds but the throw was off. I knew there'd be growing pains, but damn, Herman could've helped this young team by calling some of these types of plays to offset the unrelenting full force pressure they threw at us from the beginning. Too much talent on offense to have this type of play calling.
Well, at least your inability to watch is over a dispute. Mine is due to the fox station choosing to show Marshall v. Rhode Island instead. :/
Doesn't make the Bucks lackluster 2-3 record in B1G play any better to me. And didn't they (Indiana) beat Wisconsin?
Couldn't be prouder to be a small part of Buckeye Nation after seeing that.
