4 and 8 three years in a row ... and then MAYBE START questioning? Now not sure about others on this board but you'd have to be living on a diet of quaaludes.
How many more freaking runs up the middle from shotgun, short passing routes and utterly lame brained play calls do people need to see?
Why do people think we have had injury issues with our RB stable? I think it’s a miracle of all miracles that Hutch isn’t hurt given all the times he’s been hung out to dry on those 10-20 short crossing routes just past the LOS we run every single game. We certainly flirted with Hutch being injured against KU.
The most damning thing of all to me is that we have seen very brief glimpses of trying something else. The game plan for the Texas game, 4th quarter against WV, the opening Second Half drive yesterday, and snapping the ball under center in our own end zone which led to a positive gain and no safety. We always regress to the mean which is the same five freaking plays.
21 points would have won both Kansas games and against the Cowboys yesterday. Instead of being 7-3 we are looking at 5-7 with a bowl game as our best outcome for the season. Do you know why this happened? Because they keep going back to the same game plan that does not work!! These games were not lost because the other teams were terrible talent mismatches for us.
If this continues we are going to be overjoyed if we can win more than three games a season. Do you really think anyone is going to want to play here when they clearly see this? Are talented running backs, receivers and any QB going to want to play this default game plan behind this o-line? Finally, how long until the talent erodes on the defense?
I think we are going to find out.
