I love the W. Should give plenty of coaching and learning. A 30 point blow out would not have helped this team. Whatevs.

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.

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

Riding around with Bo and getting ready to film Belk commercials....

j/k...we should have known the OL was likely to be a clusterfrick of enormous proportions when we kept chasing tons of Juco OL/Xfer's and moving DL to the Oline and sliding them into a starting spot....seems we might have several 2nd and 3rd yr OL with decent "starz" that either topped out in HS or are too dumb and unmotivated to step up into an open spot...

Hell add in 1st game jitters....and an OL Coach that is back coaching at a P5 school for the 1st time in a while/ever in his 1st go round in the 'Nam....

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.

You mad, bro?

It's a new day.

It is what it is.

A lot of teams would love to be 1-0 right now.

LoL.  I see the twin brother has posted.   ;)

The one thing I was perplexed about AA yesterday was his inability to never want to run when protection broke down.  I thought he was supposed to be a better runner than BA.  Or did I remember that wrong?

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.

Houston is in the America Conf or wtf ever.

Skip corched a helluva game and played matchup ball.  Eno summoned Jim Chaneys oopty oop wiZardry. 

AA does eyebAll his guys, but so did BA. 

New line trying to pass block weird blitzes from fast dudes - hard
New line mauling men right in front of them while we run behind - easy

BB called zero dumbshit fake punts and looked to never panic.  Team didn't either.

La Tech is a good team.  So was Toledo.

Pretty much exactly where I am. 

The o-line's problems with pass blocking were mental rather than physical.  On just about every replay where they got to or close to Austin you could see that the beaten OL, usually Jackson or Froholdt, had picked the wrong guy to block.   When you have inexperienced players they're going to think rather than react, and that split second is enough time for the QB to end up on his ass.  Hopefully that is something that can be fixed.  All things being equal I'll take guys with ability who need mental corrections than guys who just flat out get blown up most of the time.

I'm a lot more bothered by our tendency to give the eight yard cushion again.  I don't think J-mar was going to beat us deep very often.  Why not dare him to do it and take away the quick passes?  By giving your opponent the wide open three step pass every play we're negating what is supposed to be the strength of the defense. 

For those who say they want a running QB, go watch a tape of the LSU or Tennessee games.  What you saw there is what you'll get nine times out of ten when you try to plug in a run first guy into a non-spread offense.  I'll take a guy with average or below speed and an accurate arm over a speedster who is lucky to complete 30% of his downfield passes any day.

I agree with you about the O-line and corner play, but I don't think anyone is advocating a run first QB.  However, I would like AA do a better job at sensing when the protection is breaking down and stepping up in the pocket and at least not lose yards.  Blitzes I get, but there were a few times he stayed in the pocket way too long.  I know it'll come with time and experience, so I'll look forward to his improvement each week.

Y'all did see where TCU allowed 41 points to South Dakota State?  They ended up winning by 41 but they had to wear down SDSU for 3 quarters worth of even shootout to get there.


If you are so bemused that you think you'd trade QBs with La Tech think how LSU feels - in the same state and LSU's QB actually has experience .

Everybody except Alabama and Ohio State has something to bitch about.  Aw, that's an overstatement but 50% of the teams lost and 50% of those that won are mad that they didn't win by enough so 75% of fan bases are bitching about something.


Find another team to follow and you'll see that everybody is pretty much the same.  You can almost survive on a college football board with about 100 canned posts where you just fill in the blanks with names as needed.

The OLine looked like it had been shuffled around during the spring and fall.

The DBs looked lost and that was very disappointing since all we heard was how Rhoades had gotten those guys improved beyond belief. It reminded me of the Tech game last year....running the same plays over and over and we never could stop them.

I knew the day was going to be shit when I sat on I49 for an hour not moving.

I hope AA can overcome the Allen genetic predisposition to stare down receivers.

BB had zero fake punts, fake double reverses  n extra points, swinging gates, double punter formations, etc.  I hope he stays with that number.

Skipper is the suck.  Always has been.  He's gone from a big oaf with an attitude to a big oaf that blocks like he could give a shit about being there.  He got beat even on plays he wasn't in the game for.

This 'stare down receivers' schtick is one of the worst ones from fans in the stands.

Quick. Someone go burn his damn truck to the ground.

I don't get how you can stare down a receiver  when you are running for Jesus every play or worse on your back.

Perhaps he was doing this sometimes to find his hot route or some thing

Austin Allen is not our problem. He held onto the ball too long and made some dumb high risk throws, but he looked good for his first start.

Our defensive secondary is our problem. Our second biggest problem (also, I'm not allowed within like 50 yards of any school) was our linebackers.

The part about the running QB was in reference to...

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

Conservatively estimating, 90% of the QBs who have wheels are lacking in either arm strength or accuracy, if not both.

Good look here of Jackson taking the inside teaming up with Raulerson, neither seems to provide a nats fart worth of protection.


That was a corner blitz and the d line did some kind of twist stuff...

100% lost in the scheme
