    Watching the Chizik show...

    I DVR this each week.

    Didn't know...we ran a school record 110 offensive plays at Lincoln Saturday.

    102, not 110. But it's a bunch either way.

    In the highlights, after that fumble recovery and return by Bell, Chizik nearly tackled him as he came off the field.

    In a good way or bad way?

    I'm looking forward to watching the Mediacom replay of the game. Interested in seeing for myself how well the offense/defense played, and the mistakes as well.

    Oh, in a good way - as in he was so excited, we need to get Gene a helmet.

    Just saw the pick that was returned for a TD - not Meyer's fault at all. Somewhat Blythe, but mostly a really good play by the defender knocking the ball out - luck that a Husker was there to catch it.

    It's getting pretty sad that the only way we can watch our team play is by a 1 hour replay on a public access station 3 days after the game originally took place. That is sooo 1980's.

    Sadly, I'm very much looking forward to watching the replay myself.

    Re: Watching the Chizik show...

    I watched the show too and saw the highlights for the first time. Granted it is a bit of a Cyclone slant and not a representation of all of the plays but this is what I came away with.

    1. Our O-line is giving Meyer more time to throw and he appears to be more comfortable staying in the pocket.

    2. We were able to score when in the red zone on some well designed plays.

    3. We were able to come back and score after adversity.

    4. Our defense made some big plays.

    Re: Watching the Chizik show...

    It did sound like, from the radio though, Meyer didn't have much time in many passing plays. Like you said, we got the Cyclone slant.

    My big concern with our passing game, is our meager yard per completion and yards per attempt numbers. Atrocious. This tells me a few things, could be just or two - or combo of all of them...

    - Line can't sustain long blocks.
    - Meyer not able to get the ball down the field efficiently.
    - Receivers not able to stretch the field.

    I find the last one hard to believe. We've seen Meyer hit the deep routes, not like a rock star but he can deliver on those. So, I think our system put in place is helping the line.

    This is exactly what should happen and a good thing, just forces us to sustain drives as we're not going to get down the field quickly (hence the ball control, big number of plays).

    That would be great also, however, we're not consistent with holding onto the ball and finishing drives.

    Lack of YAC has a lot to do with that.

    And now...the mating call of a yak. YYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKK!

    *ahem*

    But anyways, I agree. I do think part of that is, we're not putting our receivers in position to get many yards after the catch.

    We definitely weren't the first few games. We've seen that change over the last couple. Did we complete any passes against Kent State or UNI when our receivers were running as they caught it?

    Re: Watching the Chizik show...

    i was in lincoln at the game and we had alot of dropped passes, from Sumrall and Blythe IMPORTANT passes, it was surprising to see. It was very windy somehow down on the field and Meyers passes floated out of reach when we went deep with the wind and against the wind we never went deep ofcourse.

    Tons of plays and ball control is great.. except you gotta find the endzone.

    Walters was on Cotlar yesterday morning and talked a little about your thoughts. I thought he was dead on. He said that right now we are a grind-it-out offense. He run a lot of 0-3 yard plays which will usually put us in several 3rd and long situations. He said that if players make 1 or 2 errors per drive, that drive will not likely be successful.

    Our margin for error is razor thin. Which sucks because we are statistically winning football games but that isn't coming through on the scoreboard.

    And as to your 3rd point, when was the last time we had a "highlight reel" catch where we completed a 50-70 yard catch for a TD? Or broke a 40-60 yard run for a TD? It's been years, I know that.
