    Re: Commit To The Run, and We Win

    I hope we throw 3 passes total against wcu with drake and the white boy getting 70% of the carries. I am so po'd when losses point so squarely on playcalling.

    What everybody said. They were on their heels. Either pound straight at them, or go play action.
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    No, how bout not turn the ball over and not commit costly penalties and we win the game! It's not the play calling, players have to execute and focus.

    I disagree with some of that. If Hubbard plays disciplined in the first quarter the score may have been a bit different. The way we beat Tebow, all but beat Cam was to make the QB stay in the pocket. We failed miserably at this during the first quarter. This comes down to execution in th offense and tonight AJ was just a bit off when we needed it most. I'm disappointed with the loss but even with Johnny football Alabam beat Alabama today. Now lets knock the dust off and got get the SECC and let a few of these other team crumble under the undefeated pressure.

    I'm glad someone else sees it the way I see it!!! Nuss play calls were horrible!!! No way they stop us 4 straight runs and especially from the two yard line with Jesse leading the way!!!!

    I would like to see him for a few plays in each game regardless if it is a blowout or not. We've always used 3 and sometimes 4 backs in previous years but the past couple of years we've developed a tendency to only use 2 backs in tight games.

    Hadn't even thought of him there, breaks my heart even more now

    Maybe him wide with his speed. Just is like a dagger how much it all hurts.

    Yes and I was hoping for a play like we ran against AU in 2009. Fake a run up the middle and pass to a RB coming out of the backfield. We didn't even come close to fooling the aTm D on the last play. :-(

    Yes we made some mistakes throughout the game, but forget those for a second.

    It was first and goal from the 6. The game was on the line, nothing previous mattered at that point. On 1st and goal from the 6, we only ran the ball once. That is ATROCIOUS playcalling. Unbelievably bad. You run it 4 times, you'll get in the endzone on one of those carries.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    Same as the LSU game. CDN is in love with the pass. He's on my poo list.

    At least we don't have to worry about AJ leaving early.
