damn.

Yeah.  I heard some talking head yesterday at some point in my hours-long journey say that he is the 5th or 6th best in the country.

Our QB is our best player by far and receiver is our best position by far.  Prepare a game plan accordingly, Bert.

We gonna run.

That's embarrassing.  Looks like Josh Duggar when his parents asked him to babysit.

Yeah, Skip Holtz is able to implement a game plan to keep his backup QB from getting killed but it beyond Bert and crew.  You're right.  We need to run more into eight and nine man fronts.

We should go four and five wide and make other teams cover us and then of course do some run stuff. We can't block because our guys aren't picking up the stunts and so forth. We have guys giving up one and one as well but I kind of think that would go away if we weren't dealing a packed box.

From the QB article linked above:

[Allen] has been under pressure on 40 percent of his dropbacks, the second-highest rate in the nation, and 63.3 percent of his passing yards have come in the air – the fifth-highest rate in the nation, and a sign that he isn’t just racking up stats with short throws that produce big gains after the catch. (emphasis added)

Didn't his QB get kilt by us?

I don't disagree with that but your argument should be amended. We knocked their QB out of the our game, late, and the next game.

Part of this is no doubt predictability of playcalling.  When you're not running well on 1st and 2nd down and consistently getting in 3rd and longs where your QB has to make a play, he's going to take a lot of hits.  That last game I would bet 75% of the time he took hard hits it was on 3rd and 8 or more.

run on first down
play action on second down

if third and long, shotgun pass
if third and medium, straight drop pass
if third and short, run

Enos is usually (goal line vs A&M not withstanding) great at calling the right plays; we almost always seem to have someone open. Our WR routes are Petrino-level sharp. But the actual formula of them is very predictable.

This is really impressive.  Honestly, over a full season it would be AA worthy.  Don't worry, I'm not getting ahead of myself. 

If you read it the other way, it means we're not getting many yards after the catch.  I've seen our WR's get every yard they can after the catch, and they're pretty good at it - Morgan and Cornelius especially.  You don't really see them ever step out of bounds.  I saw Kirk do it, Seals-Jones do it, I see guys on a weekly basis do that.  Cornelius could have done it on the 25 or 30 the time he ended up inside the 10, but he did a masterful job of staying inbounds.

Anyway, it just makes what Allen has done more impressive.  He hasn't gotten the YAC that his brother did throwing to Reed in a few games last year.  Good news is, we didn't get him really involved until about game 5 last year so there's still time.  :)

Allen becomes the first QB to toss multiple TD passes in each of the first 5 games of a season for Arkansas since it joined the SEC in '92.

A ha!  That's why he was in when it was 38-10 and out of reach.

I'd bet this streak doesn't continue next week, but it will need to if we have any chance of winning.  I really, really hope Bert realizes that you HAVE to throw the ball to beat Bama.  Nobody beats them 17-14 in a slugfest other than LSU (and yes, I was at the 2014 game).  The good teams that beat them throw the ball now.  Or at least throw to set up the run.

We have two position groups that are head and shoulders above our competition most games - Allen and a great WR corps.  Our only chance against a team like Bama is to use them.  Running should be to keep them honest, we aren't going to wear Bama down.

I agree for the most part, but the receivers are not at the level they were last year...yet. We're missing the deep threat of Reed and he seems stuck in the twilight zone. I definitely think we should throw to set up the run next week.

Having Hatcher back gives us a big advantage.  He and Morgan are both outstanding and tough for corners to handle one on one and that lets you match Cornelius against a SS/LB in the slot and he's awful fast to have to cover.

Reed's failure to develop sucks, I agree.  If he were what he is capable of being we'd be so much better.

Cornelius has turned into a stud. Some of his catches against A&M were incredible.

Not to start a "I wish we would win a national championship instead of having a bunch of "good kids" kind of discussion," but I really appreciate this kind of stuff.  Although I usually am able to spend all day cruising the internets, this is all I saw.  I watched the video yesterday, can't find it now.  AA and a couple of the other guys had a sweet conversation with Keagan about superheroes.  My frien that saw this take place in person said Coach B used this encounter in the team meeting, and got very emotional pointing out to the guys they need to understand how blessed they are, and to take advantage of what they have.  Keagan has had 14 major operations so far to deal with his cancer.

They pulled the video.  I'm assuming the NCAA may have guidelines, or the family pulled the video.  No clue why.  Brooks Ellis, Austin Allen, Kody Walker, and Dan Skipper visit with him.  Skipper gives him "knucks" and Keagen makes him do it again because he forgot to "blow it up."  He tells Austin and Brooks his favorite superhero is Ironman because  (as he holds his open palms up) "he can zap people."
