    Nope. We lost because they had a qb that could throw, and we didnít. Jacob Coker, Blake Sims, and Tua wins that game Going away.

    True. Jalen working with his 9th () off. co. Didnít help the situation either.

    Last year we could run at will on first and second down in conventional offense. Struggled with 3rd/4th and short situational running. This is why we had to dust off the wildcat offense playbook late in the season. Had to work numbers to get production in short yardage. You get an offense that can consistently get the tough yard then all the sudden we just pound 75% or more of our opponents and save the passing attack for the big dogs.

    This is effectively what Clemson did last year. I truly didn’t think by what I saw before the playoffs that Lawrence could bomb ND and Alabama like he did.

    Yep... I'm a Dinosaur... BUT...
    Three yards and a cloud of dust controls the game.

    Your ahead and you have a monster Defense.

    THING IS...
    We can do both. We have the Backs with another gear...
    We have the guts who can plow the road for them.
    We have the QB who can thread the needle with passes.
    AND...
    We have the Receivers who can go up and make the catches.

    Did I mention I hope our coaches know when to run which play.

    ADVICE TO TUA: You don't have to win the game by yourself,
    Let some of our other great players carry the load occasionally.

    I'm all for grinding the clock out/ground & pound type approach. But it better result into touchdowns and not fg's more times than not, and dang sure better not turn up many non scoring possessions. I hope to find a healthy balance where we're not to either extreme. We've struggled to find that balance in the past few years.

    Hurts is a thicker fella than Tua. Iíve been thinking Tua is a little on the injury prone side.

    To my knowledge, he's had a knee injury due to game action and this tweaked hamstring. You can tweak a hamstring going up and down steps to classes or streching in bed the wrong way. This does not necesarilly make him injury prone. If it were another player on our roster (and there likely are more that have little tweaks and such) it wouldn't be news.
    Like everyone else I certainly want him in good shape and hope he learns more how to slide/go out of bounds/throw the ball away and trust his playmakers around him and not try to take the whole game on his shoulders.
    Like Old Man Dan, if we have a stout defense like we've historically been accustomed to we can lean on our running game and still have a prolific passing game. We also need an o-line who has a very nasty disposition and are capable of opening up holes in the run game as well as protect Tua in the passing game.

    Also missed spring practice in 2018 due to a thumb injury, and donít forget the ankle surgery he had before the playoffs. Letís not sugarcoat it, Tua is injury prone.

    What about the 45-18 score Alabama averaged last year?

    Glad to see I wasn't the only one taken aback by that.
