Watching Joe Burrow play at LSU last year made me think that there were some short yardage, bootleg, and deep play action that was really missing from our offense with a QB like Haskins. Their Oline was terrible and their playcalling suspect, but they were good at that.

Day tried to work some of that in, and it was effective.  I just don’t think it’s a set of plays that made Urban comfortable overall.

It may have been predictable that 3 &4,3,2,1 was gonna be a JTB run, but it almost always worked...which is pretty impressive since everyone knew it was coming. So, I don’t get the hate for it. JTB was amazing at getting that 1st down, which is the primary objective.

It happened after he talked smack and didn’t do what he said he was gonna do.  Part of that was the stuff that was found out after he left, like he kinda always seemed to have one foot out of the door (true or not that was the impression).

I was pulling for him and wanted to see him stay and play.  He’s talented and a winner.

I don’t hate him but I kinda understand why some people are over him & that’s what I think is reflected in the snarky comments.  

But even before that, I think he bore the brunt of being a true dual threat QB and people didn’t want to go back to Urban’s 20+ QB runs a game.

I think that's fair... and I wish the NCAA would level the playing field itself by setting the number of conference games or changing the post-season rules. 

But we will always be at a disadvantage in the current system. And Delaney has not/is not working to make sure it's fair. The only way to get to level, then, in CFB is to play be the SEC's rules until it forces change in the whole (as people get tired of it, the same way the Big 12 got tired of being left out and changed their rules).

Fine. It's just an example but others have made that point before. And I'm not saying that its okay to lose those games we should have won.

I'm saying that our conference rules and scheduling adversely affect the B1G in the football playoff scenario whereas, its much easier for the SEC to get one team in even if they have 1 or 2 losses. That's a SYSTEM problem.

Outside of making money, the Commish needs to be the conference advocate. Delaney...at least in these last few years, is not.  He talks about the Rose Bowl and winning a conference, yada yada... things that really mattered in the 70s, 80s, and the early 90s.

But modern college football is about the NC (and playoffs). And Delany's laisse faire  approach to this hurts the B1G's chances (not just OSU's).

It's likely that we don't play those away trap games if we have an 8-team conference schedule. Instead of Purdue and Iowa away games...we'd be playing the Citadel, for example. 

There's a statistical reason why the SEC ends up having more shots at the NC or the playoffs for over a decade...even with equal or more losses... we better adapt or we'll get left behind. 

Comment 04 Mar 2019

I changed it to reflect his good job of getting us money.

But his most recent comments played down the playoffs and NC as essentially unimportant. 

He's not willing to fight for his conference and work the system to get his teams in year in and year out like the SEC does and now the ACC.  I get he's a lover of tradition but times have changed. 

Until the differences in conference rules are addressed...or the playoffs are expanded...those taking advantage of that will always have the upper hand in getting their teams in the playoffs. We need a commish that gets that and acts accordingly.
