Yeah I know what we are trying to do, but there is a point where you have to determine if your offense can be run by these players against this defense at this point in time. It’s a balance.
My criticism is that we either were not executing well enough (coaching/talent problem)* or not keeping the defense off balance (coaching/play calling).
Vs FAU all the stuff they ran that was constraint stuff (sweeps, direct snaps, QB run) kept the defense off balance. The bulk of the offense was ran well also — the throws to Shorter were on time and on target, for example.
* And when. We moved the ball well versus UNLV but lost three 4th and 1s. A+ grade for all aspects of the offense except short yardage, where they got F- That brings the grade point average down a bit.
re: Tennessee. Hendon Hooker is balling out and for Aune has been mediocre in crucial spots in comparison.
