The problem is when you start installing too many blocking schemes it can slow confuse and slow down an O-line.    While that approach may work in the pros when learning and rehearsing blocking scheme is all they do all week, this is college where you are only allowed so many hours per week to teach, install and practice your gameplan.  When you have 2 backs who have different running styles that require different blocking schemes, you either split time, which reduces effectiveness of the practice for both, or you choose one who is your main effort, and the other guy has to adjust.

As much as I'd love to see them stay to try to get to the Natty next year, realistically, they're all going.  However, I also wouldn't 100% rule out out a return, especially after HOW they lost last night.  There is, after all, precedent for players who were considered high draft picks coming back for their senior year after a heartbreaking close of the season (Mike Doss, James Laurinaitis, Malcom Jenkins, etc)

The punt block was a guts call and an attempt to swing momentum.  I can see why Day went for it.  They had Clemson punting on the 1yd line and when we unleash our punt blockers, they can usually get home.  And our guys usually dive in front, so they don't really have a chance to hit the kicker.  Had we gotten home, that would likely have been a safety or TD.  What kills me is that I've seen more contact with kickers this season not get called at all.  Brown DID run into the kicker and should have been called for 5 yds.  That they called that a "roughing" was BS.

They were trying to swing momentum.  If they got a block, it would have likely been at least a safety if not a TD.  They came pretty damn close too.  And even if they bumped the kicker, it would likely only be a 5yd penalty, which would STILL result in a punt.  I concur that it was not a blatant roughing and merely a running into.  And replay DID show Brown pulling up from his run.  Hell, Brown could have caught the punter mid air and set him nicely on the ground.....

What I find BS is that there was NO flag on the play initially.  So at game speed it was not deemed a targeting hit.  And I agree Wade's tackle was textbook, and Lawrence ducked his head.  Why it was reviewed was because Lawrence was on the ground squirming after the fact.  And when the QB is squirming on the ground, OF COURSE, it's targeting....SMH.  It's hard enough making tackles at this level of football without further hamstringing defenders with silly rules on how tackles are made.  Targeting was intended to get rid of deliberate dirty hits.  Instead it's become this nebulous rule that there is no clear definition for.

That's how I read it too.  It seems like Day is not going to stand in the way of a opportunity for advancement for his subordinates.  No good leader does.  A good leader mentors his subordinates to look and take opportunities that are good for advancement.  It just so happened that the BC job opened up this year.
