    Schwartz directly behind Arnaud. A-Rob offset slightly behind and to the right of Schwartz. Bo Williams slightly behind and to the left of Schwartz.

    Re: Let's Break Out the Wishbone Next Year

    I think we might see some of the split backs formation. I heard somewhere that Bo Williams was practicing in this formation.

    I don't know if anyone thought Scales was a stud. I thought we might have 2 with JJ, but I guess he never panned out. A-Rob was the only stud RB this year.

    Couldn't agree more. Obviously people ignored your post but you hit in on the head. OFFENSE IS NOT THE PROBLEM.

    We had over 600+ offensive yards today and LOST!

    And only scored 30 points off all those yards. (24 until the last play of the game). This against a team that was playing out the string under a fired coach, and basically quit against Nebraska a week before.
    The entire offensive staff should go visit Paul Johnson at GT.

    Re: Let's Break Out the Wishbone Next Year

    An offense that puts up 30 points, and still looses, isnt the problem. The defense is what needs help, and in a big way.

    I agree, the offense isn't perfect by any means. But I think our defense needs the most attention at this time.

    I think there are a few problems. As far as the offense, our run blocking is not good/consistant. So in theory we are primarily one dimensional on offense, we need to improve run blocking on the offense. The defense needs to get a push up the middle and ends that get get to the back field, otherwise it won't matter how fast, big, our DBacks are.

    Just my opinion here....

    Scoring is a problem. We average 10 points less than what we need to be viable. Too many fieldgoal attempts. Red zone bejeevies.
