    What I Saw at Stillwater Saturday!

    I went with my son and his family to Stillwater Saturday for the game. I started out sitting at our assigned seats. Later on I moved to about the third row from the field and sat with the parents. I got to see quite a bit of action at that level. I am not going to get on Jared Barnett. What i saw was him taking many snaps from the center, which by the way, were slow snaps which delayed the quarterback getting the ball quickly. When Barnett did get the ball I counted only to three or four before their were Oklahoma State players right next to him. Many times he was extremely active by doing a reverse roll to the left to escape at least three defenders. One time as he spun out to his left two defensive ends or linebackers were coming so fast that they collided knocking each other down. My point is this. I believe we should go to a different offense at times when that is happening. Why not go to a Power I with Barnett under center, Woody at fullback and Johnson or Nealy the tailbacks. Bring in the two biggest and strongest tight ends that we have and place the linemen next to each other and run it up the middle with Woody leading. I think that we could keep the defense off the field for a long time and also score. We did that once before when we were having a tough year under McCarney. I believe they moved the tight end Banks to running back and we won the game against Kansas at Ames.

    Simple answer: We don't have the personnel up front to run the power I.

    Another simple answer: How many plays do you want the playbook to be? Each time you add a play you're taking practice time from another.

    In most cases the ball needs to be gone by "four", if not by "three".

    NFL defensive lineman are trained to get to the quarterback in three seconds. I assume the same is generally true of college defensive lineman. That's why sometimes coaches talk about getting rid of the ball by 2.5 seconds.

    I'm a grandpa.

    I got pretty close to the field.

    I'm also smarter than our coaches.

    Remember McCarney?

    Re: What I Saw at Stillwater Saturday!

    1. We don't have a single RB for this especially if Woody is playing FB
    2. We do not have the offense for this.
    3. Then you have to be able to pass out of the formation.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I'm a little surprised by the reaction to this post. I read it. I enjoyed reading it. I survived.
