That was back when Herman was the QB coach and Warriner could focus on the line. Now, Tim Beck is the QB coach, and Warriner is splitting time. So we know what the looks like; we just saw it last night. Only, it'll be worse.
I agree. Which is why Warriner never should have been offered the OC position.
Yeah. Only curious how it will look next year after we've lost Decker, Boren, Elliott, Thomas, Vannett and possibly Elflein. I'm sure it will go swimmingly breaking in four new starters, given how this year went returning four starters from a line that won a national championship, especially if we keep Tim Beck.
Lincoln Riley, now at Oklahoma. Their offense has undergone a sea change with him, and they're even breaking in a new QB.
I think the important thing for people shouting "10-1!" to realize is that even the biggest Buckeye haters on the planet expected exactly this out of the Buckeyes. 10 wins and losses to Michigan State and Michigan to close the season. We still have a chance to put it all together against Michigan, but given that statistically they're a better defense than MSU in almost every statistical category, well.... I'm not holding my breath.
I wonder how many Florida fans were talking themselves into Steve Addazio after his offense cost them a shot at the 2009 Championship. I wonder how that turned out for them.
We are going to run up and down the field on Michigan. At their place. Again.
And our smothering defense won't allow a repeat of 2013.
Sick and tired of the negativity surrounding the offense. JT and this offense, no caveats, puts up 40+ on Alabama.
It's the one that piles up gaudy statistics with former 3rd-string quarterbacks throwing darts to wide-open two-time Silver Football winners. This team scores 35 points per half regardless of the opponent. It eats the giant target defending champions wear on their backs for breakfast. Through a straw.
Not only did this team never exist, it never has existed and in all likelihood never will exist, except maybe in NCAA Football 14 fantasies, where the read option can be run 35 times a game with no diminishing returns and deep safety coverage is optional.
It's college football in 2015. When your offensive staff undergoes an overhaul, your philosophy has to change from quarterback to quarterback, and you are working in just enough new guys for it to matter, well... sorry, folks, we aren't going to win every game 63-14. Even controlling for all of that, it wasn't going to happen.
I am pleased with the progress of the team. I think we will find Saturday that we are rounding into form. We might not win by 30 (it is Champaign, after all), but we'll never really break a sweat.
We had no answer for Henry last year and still almost beat them by two touchdowns.
That's what I was going for! :D
I want Alabama's skull. Every year. If we don't get it, we'll just be told we're "lucky" we dodged Saban and the boys.
I would fully support the team and the coach if they made the decision the Tigers and Pinkel did.
Virginia Tech can have Enter Sandman. When that happened, the team should have taken the field to this:
Not in the least bit concerned. Penn State's brutal opening stretch:
San Diego State
They had a Charmin Soft out of conference schedule and still couldn't make it out of it undefeated. If we don't turn the ball over, we win by four touchdowns.
This is rough, brother. Keep your head up. I'm just starting out in finance and still shake my head at how cutthroat this industry can be. I would take the pay cut and swallow your pride. I've made deliveries before (medical supplies, attorney and tax records, the whoel shebang) and it's actually a pretty good gig if you're paid by the hour, rather than commission.
I wish you the best of luck. My heart goes out to you, man.
This is a mistake.
It's Barrett. Give him some confidence by naming him the starter going forward. Stop getting cute on 3rd down and hand it to Zeke. Show some confidence in your wide receivers, especially Thomas.
Go back and watch the game tape. Only Oregon even vaguely respected Cardale's arm.
The issue is not just that he's not getting carries. The situational play calling has been atrocious. Multiple opportunities to ice the game on 3rd and shoirt and we refused to give the ball to him. The one time we did, we ran him off tackle, when the middle was open all day. He needs to be getting the ball on every 3rd and short situation, and they need to run him behind Elflein and Boren. Against Bama and Oregon, that was an automatic 8 yards. The playcalling is too damn cute and it's going to cost us a game if we don't get away from it.
Alabama, Wisconsin and Oregon all sold out to stop the run. It didn't matter. The playcalling was better. Not perfect, but better.
