Austin Allen's tool is bigger than yours
« on: September 03, 2016, 09:07:11 PM »
Stick it in Crapola Crapola if you want, but I want to be that internet asshole who is first to go dark side on something.  He fucking sucks. Surely we have someone better than this.

A QB who can't run, or pass with zip, or think quickly on his feet, or scramble is realllllllly not optimal for the SEC.

A little early to close the book on him, but yeah, he sucked today.  It was his first start after all.

It was the freshman La Tech's first start, too. First action. Freshman.

I'd trade right now.  WITH LOUISIANA FUCKING TECH.

With QBs, I think that saying always applies, if the dog's gonna bite, he'll do it as a pup.

The play calling was Shit. How many times did we throw it down field past the ten yard line? The O-line looked like crap.

Usually teams only have to replace a QB or RB, not both a QB and RB.

This staff was not ready for this. I wonder what the Fuck they were doing in the off season.

I would hate to wait another three years for the staff, QB, and O-line to jell to compete in the SEC.

Until the Bielema gets it, that you cannot wait til November to win games, we will not beat Bama or win the SEC.

Remember thinking the exact same thing while watching the game, their QB just looked better. Can't figure out how a team like LATech manages to have more QB talent on their team. If this season continues to head into the abyss it appears to be headed, may as well give the 6'7 freshman reps.

The good news is that when we do both of these things we will be National Champions!

Tell me the line sucks and I'll not disagree. I don't see how you can hate a guy (post-game dronk aside) who rarely had time to throw.

We miss Alex Collins so much right now, and not because of his running.

their QB looked way better because he was throwing quick passes to open receivers.  The kid did well, but he was also in a good situation.
If our line had pass protected as well as La Tech's, it probably would have been a little more optimistic conversation.

AA does stare down receivers though.  That will get him picked a lot.

That's where I'm at. Line sucked. Hard to judge a QB when he's running for his life every play.

I will say this, he's been on campus 3 yrs and the coaches should have gotten him out of this habit by now. Surely he does the same in practice.

I thought he looked decent and the OL looked like shit.

I'm not sure how he can throw it more than 10 yards downfield when half the time he didn't get 2 seconds in the pocket before a rusher got to him.

My biggest complaint was not establishing the running game first.  Otherwise offensive playcalling was OK.  I'm not sure WTF our defensive scheme was.  Give them 10 yard cushions so they can march up the field with 5 yard gains to the flat all game long?

19-29 2 TD 2 INT 191 yds for a debut is pretty solid (also, I'm not allowed within like 50 yards of any school).  His passes were very accurate.  He didn't see defenders twice and telegraphed passes and hopefully he'll get past that like Brandon and Tyler Wilson did because both of them had the same problem early.

Yes, they did, but it's fair to say AA looked bad today.  Neither of those guys stared down receivers the way Austin did today.  Hopefully we see some progression.

I've seen Peanut Adams, Ryan Sorahan, Casey Dick, Nathan Dick, Tavaris Jackson, AJ friggin Derby, etc, etc, etc.  Any Arkansas fan should know what a bad QB performance looks like.  We have had so many guys that couldn't get the ball within 5 yards of a wide open target that I can't count them.

Austin consistently hit his targets all day long, made a tough clutch play to keep the winning drive alive and followed it up with a terrific throw on the winning TD.  He completed 2/3 of his passes despite drops.

He made 2 bad throws all day, both were on target but he didn't properly judge the defender.

He did not look "bad".  Especially for someone playing his first game after throwing only 3 passes in his career prior to that.

He took some straight-on shots to the head, neck, and chest as well.  And he bounced right back.  Didn't seem to get down or frustrated either.  I saw no negative body language. 

This suggests he's got the mind set to be able to learn.  Let's give him a hot minute to acclimate. 

Does anyone happen to know where his truck is parked tonight?

He didn't run for his life. He stood in the pocket for his life.  Usually about 3-5 beats too long.

If he would have actually run for his life, things might have been better.  Standing in the pocket is ok if you have an arm like Ryan Mallett.  Austin ain't no Mallett.  He's not even a Brandon.

This. He looked fine for a QB in his first start playing in our offense compared to LA Techs QB who feasted on soft coverage all day in a spread offense.

No, they didn't.

Furthermore, their QB did jack shit but throw quick outs and hits to WIDE OPEN receivers.

That's more of an indictment of our defense than a knock on Austin Alen.

Froholdt and Raulerson are much more to blame than Allen is.

I didn't like anything about our passing game, and true, much of it was not Austin's fault:

1) No protection much of the time.
2) Plays that just took forever to set up and develop. Why was this happening?  Was it scheme or were we just running in molasses today?
3) No downfield throws called at all.  Probably a result of #1 + #2 + Austin having a weak arm.

Some were Austin's fault:

1) Holding the ball for wayyyyy too long past that one...two...three beats where a QB should know he has to get rid of it. His mental sharpness seemed to match our passing game in general: molasses.

2) Not a scrambler or runner.  Perhaps not his "fault," but I want my QB to have wheels.

3) Throws had no zip.  He has more than a pop gun, but way less than a cannon.  I was so surprised when the last TD made it all the way over to Sprinkle. The ball was in the air so long, my dead grandma could have knocked it down.  Not sure what Tech's #45 was doing. Against SEC speed, that's Pick 6 the other way.

Bert and company used this game as a QB warmup for the season's passing game. It bit them in the ass. It was a dumb decision. The results reflect that.

yes but what does it mean when we can't even warm up our passing game against a CUSA school? I suppose we'll try and warm it up against against Texas St in a couple weeks.

I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.
