    The scouting on Drake is that he is a little slow picking up the pass blocking scheme.
    Fair enough. Put him in and smash the ball.

    The last 2 games we have been a throw first, run second team. Running the ball successfully has won us 2 championships in the last 3 years. Why abandon the run now? I just dont understand why we've become a pass first team.

    Our team is NOT built to get into shoot outs with other teams. We are built to be a ground and pound, time of possession and low turnover type team.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one yelling at the TV, "Run the Ball!" Expletives removed, of course.

    I literally yelled that almost every single play we were on offense. I just dont understand it. Im not a coaching mastermind or anything but even Ray Charles can see that we're running the ball successfully and for whatever reason we abandon it and force the throw with AJ.

    I have to completely agree. Score in one of the last 4 plays and we have a good chance of holding them off. There was no need to even consider passing. That erases everything up to that point that went wrong if you score.

    Maybe the coaches were shying away from running. Lacy got his bell rung and may not have been totally able. Yeldon had already fumbled on a crucial drive. We have a heisman trophy caliber qb, a great group of receivers, and a great o-line that had protected good all day so maybe thats why they were choosing to pass.

    I do agree about wanting to run the ball down their throat though, but coaches may have not felt to confident at the time is all I'm saying.

    we do have some good wrs. ithougt our goal was to call balanced offense to keep our opponent off balance. however, we did just the opposite for the past two weeks.

    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.
    Agree 1000%. When you have our O-line, why?

    We got away from the run way before any of that. It started on the first series of the game.

    I agree. Today we lost the Time of Possession battle, Turnover battle and Rushing Yards battle. Texas A&M had 15 more rushing attempts than we did. To me, that is unacceptable. Not bad for a "Big 12" team.

    It is like we tried to be the big 12 team today....even some of the called runs were finesse runs. Scratching my head on this.

    I'm friggin' screamin' that from the mountaintop!!! Don't forget throwing on first down time after time. When we ran on first down, it seemed we had much better luck.

    This consistent "pass on 1st down" business started with the BCS NC game last year. It worked extremely well that night. But AJ has been off in his passing ever since the injury that was called a back bruise. If Alabama had just run the ball about 10 more times in the second half of tonight's game, we would have won.
