    What happened to speeding up the offense?

    One thing that I don't understand is the speed of getting the play in. I thought this was supposed to be a fast moving offense, getting the O set and snapping the ball before the D has a chance to get set. I don't remember seeing it vs. Iowa and I only saw it late today.

    From what I have seen, this is when AA does his best. He seems to find a rythm and hits his receivers and makes better calls. But instead, all I saw today was the line getting set, and then the O looking to the sideline to get the call. The only time they seemed to speed it up was when they had to when the clock was running out in the 4th.

    I think what is happening is they want to take their time because our Defense is pretty bad. The more the offense stays on the field the better. So if they take their time a 3 and out will take a couple minutes instead of 3 quick incomplete passes.

    No huddle doesn't mean hurry up it just means they don't huddle. It just limits the defenses ability to substitute, and it enables the offense to go hurry up if they want to get a play in faster.

    Getting false starts also gives an extra breather for the defense.

    You can't do that **** with this defense. You have to try to use some clock...can't throw three passes and punt. Recipe for disaster. If we had a decent defense fine, but not now.

    Hurry up is not equal to no huddle.
