    Question about play calling?

    Why is it that we didn't run any wide receiver screens? Except for the touchdown to Darks..why did we not run anything? I thought that was a staple of this offense. Quick pass plays to the receivers and let them make plays!

    Re: Question about play calling?

    Looks like we were depending on the defense to hold them and the offense not to screw things up and to give AA some confidence to throw downfield. None of them worked. Can we have game do overs?

    Actually, we thought we would surprise them by going back to last year's well.

    Why have four or five receiver sets when you cannot get the ball to them? I know it spreads Iowa out but their front four could handle the whole middle.

    cuz our receivers can't make big plays. YAC is not our strong suit. We do have solid recievers though, Darks is damn good.

    In my opinion we are red-shirting the two receivers (Young and West) that were recruited to play the slot and take these screens and go!
