    First Half Offense

    While watching the Alabama-Texas A@M game, I noticed how little Alabama (a power football team) ran the ball and instead passed. I know we don't have 5 star talent, but Iowa doesn't either on defense. Why not set up the run with the pass. Iowa's secondary was their weak spot. Roll the QB out, throw wheel routes to the back, and use Woody for runs up the middle.

    I do not know who you are, but I do know that you are not Courtney Messingham.

    You messing the court again? Maybe we could have the Anti-Call Policy. If he calls run up middle, the play converts to another type play. It will take Tulsa a whole game to figure it out.

    Seriously running up the middle against the Hoks accomplished nothing when the longest run was nine yards. SR continues to be oiur best running threat in our stable of backs.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I remember how well it worked when we rolled out Bret Meyer every pass play. We need Sam to be a pocket passer for most of his throws. We need the O-Line to allow that to happen.
