We relied on Jacobs in the wildcat last year for short yardage. For some reason the offensive line cannot get any push on short yardage plays and thus the wildcat was reintroduced. Looks like it carried over this year with Slade..
Yeah, but Slade is tiny.

Could be that the staff just like what he does in practice and his wildcat stuff is a reward for hardwork. Definitely think we're setting that up for a trick play down the line.

After hearing about the LaBryan Ray injury this morning, I believe it becomes more critical for our o-line to solve it’s issues in the run game and and pass protection. Given the injuries and inexperience on the defensive side of the ball, it maybe one of those seasons where we surrender 25 or more points per game as rule rather than an exception.

For that reason it is imperative we make sure we keep Tua upright and healthy through the season. I think we’ve seen already this season a concentration by Sark on Tua remaining in
the pocket going through progressions and less keeping the ball on RPOs and absorbing that punishment.

A game like LSU make come down to us simply out scoring them and hope our D makes some key stops along the way. And a healthy Tua will be essential in doing that.

Barmore impressed me. I get that he was going up against gassed OL. But, they were starters and he made an impact. I hope to see more of him sooner than not. Some guys shine brighter at game time.

Absolutely. I don't mind the penalty. He was aggressive.

That may get us through the LSU game but it is not a recipe to win out, in the playoffs, and/or win a NC. Unless we dramatically improve our run game and D, we will suffer losses in November.

RJ, I may be wrong, but looking it up, appears Ole Siss was the only team that played back to back on the road in '12 and '13, and it was against us in TTown.
You are probably right. I might be thinking of those Florida-LSU hurricane delay games that seemed to happen a few years in a row.
