Spread offense that is based off the run with no o-line...not gonna work. Drop it.
You have Gary, Bundrage, J. West, and Brun returning with great hands. I think Q. West and and and P.J. Harris join in the passing game. I think Medders also has the potential to do so.
That being said, drop the 200 yards rushing / game, aim for 350 yards passing/game.
As we've seen multiple times this year, we have the ability to get open and we have the ability to run screens. Medders (a receiver) won't let a defender go if we run a screen to his side. We have the speed to run screens.
Drop the run, run the pass.

Move the ball at least 3.34 yards every down until touchdown.
yep; thats pretty much nails it. We lost time of possession probably in every game all season. Until we can start winning time of possession; or at least keeping it somewhat close; forget about it. We cannot run the ball; we cannot consistently move the ball down the field; we cannot get first down; we go three and out all the time; we cannot pound the ball when need be. Our defense lost total confidence in the offense and it showed. I would like to see 2 TE sets next year and make some major tweaks to our scheme; and just like Paul Rhoads said in paraphrase; "we don't have to run the ball; but [pounding on the podium]; we have to run the ball"
