Aune should have been done after the first quarter. We could have won that game with nothing but run plays. It was a missed opportunity to try another QB in live game action with the 1s. Instead, we got to watch our receivers outclass FCS defensive backs and make Aune look good while only completing 55% of his passes.
Wait until the second pick 6 on 3rd down. The very next drive, he nearly throws another pick 6 on 3rd down but it's dropped.
For the record, I don't think interceptions are necessarily the worst thing ever when pushing the ball down field if it was a 1-on-1 50/50 ball. You put the ball for the receiver to get it and trust them to make a play. Obviously if your receiver isn't winning those battles, stop throwing them deep but that's why we love a good gunslinger. Now, when it's a late deep ball, throw in double coverage, or late short pass like both pick 6s, I'm going to blame the QB. On the first pick 6, he knew the goal was to get first down and where the receivers were going but threw it late which allowed the defense to read the route and get involved with the ball in the air. Brings me to another Aune concern. He's consistently been the starter for over a season's worth of games. If his timing is off, that's a problem.
