    From 2016-2018 we didn’t even have a tight end coach. Mainord was the inside receivers coach and Filani was the outside receivers coach. We also didn’t sign any tight ends in any of those 3 classes. Instead we started 4 receivers, with one inside receiver starting at the A position (Darden) and one inside receiver starting at the Y position (Michael Lawrence), which is now occupied by a tight end.

    For those first few years the only tight ends on the roster were Kelvin Smith and Caleb Chumley, who were both inherited from Mccarney. But we started to see a philosophical shift in 2018 as they used Kelvin Smith more and started recruiting tight ends at that time, getting a commitment from Alberding for the 2019 class, then signing Christian Lee and Jake Roberts in 2020. 

    Now we have a tight end on the field in our base formations, even if he’s split out in the slot like Pirtle often is. Which is part of the reason I’m calling for more Khatib Lyles. Pirtle is pretty frequently lined up in the slot, as opposed to being on the line of scrimmage where the blocking requirements might make more sense to hurt Lyles’ chances.

    Routing running and the ability to find an open spot in the zone maybe?

    Based on the way tonight's game went, there shouldn't be any controversy.  Bean is our starter in our next game.

    But the way the season has gone, the precedent has been set--if any QB isn't doing well, he's getting pulled for the other guy, and pretty quick.

    Is three turnovers “pretty quick”?

    IMO, there is a difference between putting something out there for everyone to see, vs. giving everybody permission to broadcast it.

    For me it is just none of our business to discuss the personal lives of teenagers. I am sure I am guilty of it on here as well at some point but trying to avoid it. Plus the comments always get “old man yelling at cloud” judgmental.
