    Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    Combined for 3 catches for 12 yards.

    I wonder what is taking these guys so long to catch on. This offense turns the corner if one or two of them becomes a playmaker.

    Re: Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    I'm seeing nothing out of Sed Johnson right now. Not sure what's up, because he has the physical tools. IMO, if he doesn't pick up his game this season, I could see him falling down the depth chart and into "bust" territory.

    Not to be Debbie Downer, I have been very impressed w/Jake Williams. Good hands, good routes, and a lot of speed. I think him and Ham are clearly the best receivers on this team RIGHT NOW.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    I agree Jake Williams has been a really good surprise. Hamilton has been very solid. I think Darks will get better week to week, he the only one of those three young guys that has proven himself on the field in college.

    We are going to need to sign 4-5 WRs at LEAST if we plan on running a really successful spread offense. Good to see we already have one.

    I just have not seen Sed able to get himself open.

    And for that matter, I don't think we have thrown a true deep ball all season, and we're getting single coverage on the corners quite a bit.

    We've tried. Arnaud has overthrown it a couple times.

    Additionally, when we've really tried the stretch the field, Arnaud has hit Sash in stride.

    Hamilton had one in game one.

    AA threw a few to Sash in the last game.

    Re: Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    We don't have a single WR on our team that can make the first man miss and get around him. Money has shown flashes of making people miss, but he never gets down field after that. We need someone who can do that... I think all 3 of those guys are capable of that... they just have yet to prove it. Step up.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    I get the feeling that, in this offense, everyone needs to be on the same page for it to work effectively. By that I mean understanding it, and executing it. Darks may well not be 100% physically, and if he is, missing time certainly doesn't help the learning curve and timing. Reynolds seems to be doing fine, though I'm not sure where he went during this game. Perhaps Kent State was taking him away? Sed Johnson, I'm not sure. I'm not discounting any of them until Austin gets fully on track.

    They are all three hurt that's why. Yeah they can play but the truth is they are hurt.

    Bingo. And with Army as another game for them to recover and get back into sync, I certainly don't mind if that trio explodes all over the Big XII....

    What from their injuries slowed them down? Were they missing practice time? Serious question.

    Re: Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    I wasn't able to see this game, but Iowa had two safeties deep over the top all game last week. I'm sure our opponents are watching that tape and doing similar things (I was not able to watch the Kent State game). If we are going to "take what the defense gives us," we'll likely have to throw underneath a lot and let our receivers make YAC. Of course, if we keep getting 100+ yards out of A-Rob, that should help pull safeties up and give us more opportunities to go deep.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Darks, Reynolds, Johnson

    Poor QB play is a big part of it too. While the three of them don't seem to be getting open, to be fair Arnaud is not hitting them in stride at all when he does actually throw one their way.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
