All of this.  Play calling was fine last night, considering the fact that Austin was practically getting killed every time he dropped back.  Playing catchup against that pass rush is a bad situation for an offense to find themselves in.

Disagree.

Every 1st down I knew we were going to run, mostly likely for no or minimal gain, and every 3rd down we were in 3rd and long and we'd have an obvious passing down  where Allen had to take enormous pressure and deliver a strike.  This was especially true the 2nd half.  That put ENORMOUS pressure on Allen and somehow he kept delivering over and over.  We were completely predictable.

I'm not sure Bielema wasn't driving this instead of Enos, though.  We've seen Enos call a wide open game before.

Goal line playcalling was terrible and predictable.

Enos and Bielema always say they take what the defense gives you. Last night we didn't, we forced a running game that wasn't working and avoided our passing game which was working consistently when we need it to break a tie and then to come from behind.

But with the way Austin was getting knocked around, I understand wanting to maintain rushing attempts.  The wrinkle I wouldn't have minded seeing is a draw or middle screen, something to take advantage of aTm's aggressiveness on D.

By the way, AA wasn't yelling at Enos. He was yelling at the GA for not repeating the call more than once.  He was probably seeing double in the second half. AA would take 10 bullets for Enos, jump on live grenades before he yelled at Enos.

If I was the coach, AA wouldn't play against Alcorn unless we were to drop behind by 2 TDs. Let Stotey get some game experience and let AA heal up. AA would probably volunteer to play right tackle.  Lord knows he would do better than what happened at that position last night.

I wasn't happy with some of the calls at the goal line, but I'm not at practice every day. Enos made the call he thinks we could come closer to executing. You jackasses who know better how to call scoring plays need to quit your jobs at McDonalds and get a job as an OC. It's easier than washing out the soda  machine.

I once almost cleaned out the coffee pot when I was working at PDQ at Russellville. Then I remembered the hot water killed the germs, and I don't drink coffee. Hope nobody died in the 2 years before I graduated to OC of the 5th grade Sand Lizards.

Agree, we couldn't give up on the run, but I would've rather have seen a mix.  Pass more on 1st, run some draws on 3rd.  Try to be unpredictable.  One thing you don't want to do against an aggressive defense like aTm is give them obvious passing or running downs, they will blow that stuff up.  And they did.

Allen played far better than even his stats suggested last night. Helluva game.

Gotta wonder though. If he could complete passes at the end of the game when everyone KNEW he was throwing, why didn't we give him a chance to throw it in from the one.

I'm a big Enos fan but last night was very questionable. I don't think they realized A&M would stack the box all night.

Throwing for the one is not real American football.

I wanted to see AA throw down on the goal line as well but today alone, I've seen multiple NFL coordinators call the same shit Enos did. Maybe it's like, ummm hard and stuff when you have no room. And I am always of the belief that if you can't punch it in running the ball from the 1, you don't deserve to win. We did not deserve to win last night and I'm not sure a few different play calls would change the outcome from a L to a W, may have made it a closer score but who fucking cares about that.

I'm a big fan as well. But, I don't care if they didn't realize beforehand that they would or not - its called midgame adjustments.

This. I have heard it before that unless Bret is leading, he does not or cannot make adjustments to win from behind.

I thought I heard the Hogs have trailed in 2 4th qtrs this year alone and won? We need to have the guys we are hearing things from have a talk.

You have got me there.

At least one of those games that we were already leading and he almost blew it

I never would've said this before the season but I expect Austin Allen to be playing on Sundays while HIll and Knight are selling cars.

He's got "it"  Moreso than his brother.  He's smart and accurate and has guts, but he also has that intangible that his brother didn't have until the end of his career.  He will find you a way to win.  I think he was livid he didn't get a good chance to Saturday, he wants to strap the team on his shoulders and win with them.

I agree he was one of the few that looked displeased to be losing. I'm glad he's showing that emotion, it mean he knows it's his team. Several others were too busy looking around the stadium.

As for his pro potential. I'm not sold yet but he's certainly showing he's got guts and accuracy. I'm thinking he's shorter than his listed height. Like Chase Daniel short. AA will show a command of this offense like we haven't seen by this time next season (provided Enos doesn't take a new gig)

Agree on the posts above.   People who have watched a lot of FHS football said as much about Austin and the "it" factor and the way he is way more aggressive.    I think he posts on here.... but I can recall Boy Named Sue E. saying this forever and I had heard enough other people say it as well. 

I think we have a winner QB on our hands who wants to get after it and I think Bret probably needs to kind of turn him loose some.  I also think he's shorter than his listed height.

He threw a lot of passes last night where he had to hang in until the last second, and they were all impressive.  But the one he threw 40 yards in the air across the field to Morgan, where he dropped it in between a CB and the safety, that was an NFL throw.  I think it was in the 4th quarter at some point.

He's tougher than a honey badger's taint.  That much is certain.

He got up a couple times popping his shoulder back in socket or looking through the ear hole in his helmet, and he just kept on going.

He's smart.  He's accurate.  That team believes in him.

If they will quit with all this Bertball shit and just put the team and the program on this kid's shoulders, he will deliver.  He is a gunslinger with an attitude.  He is your 30 points a game three ball shooter with ice in his veins.  Feed him the rock and let him do his thing.

Should the next to impossible happen, and we beat the Bammers, Austin Allen would replace Chuck Norris as the all time badass in the universe (in Arkansas and some of the SEC at least).
