That's funny. The last time I saw Perry, he was almost perfect throwing it, if the receivers would have caught the balls that hit them in the hands.

Sure. Perfect throwing it on a few of the select plays he has proven he can run. He wants the team to learn and grow so we come into Spring at least knowing the systems. No matter the score, you don't reward the backup who requires you to use just a third of your playbook because he can't manage the effort to learn the playbook and can't reliably make the necessary throws on half the plays he does know.

Is the object to use all of your playbook and lose, or 1/3 of your playbook and win?

So, a fan in North Carolina knows what our players are learning on the practice field every day. 05-stirthepot

I seriously doubt any of the QBs know the whole playbook after only one full season with a new system. What if our QB misses spring practice because he's hurt. How does that help the team?

I think we have proven we only need a third of the playbook to win. Run left, run right, run up the middle. 05-stirthepot

Sure looked as if he had a grasp of it in the time he got against SELA earlier this year.

RE: Garrick makes it official
WHEN YOU LOSE 4?-9, it is not hard to figure that more than one or two players played poorly.

I have always heard that a defense tries to force an offense to become "one dementional". Take away that part of their attack most easily accomplished then deal with what's left. With "8 in the box" on many plays, Memphis was hardly subtle in what phase of our offense they wanted to elimiinate. They were obviously saying to UAB "You will have to beat us with your passing game, if you have one".

I don't have any idea why we played only one QB -- if only to give one a chance to see the defense from the sidelines for a series or two. If we (BT fans) knew Brown is struggling with injury, you can bet Memphis knew as well.

Also, once your team gets 3+ TDs down, you lose your FG capability since one TD + EP trumps two FGs and the time element for one FG drive also is about the same as one TD drive. Since a team averages getting to play with the ball about 4 to 6 times each half, it is imperative that they produce points if the other guys are doing it. If your team has 3 ways to score and 2 of them are successfully neutralized, you are "up the well-known creek without the paddle".

just a reminder that we were not playing not ohio state or lsu
I can understand a close lost but a blow out ,,,it is simply ridiculous

Not just a blowout, but a blowout loss to Memphis!

RE: Garrick makes it official
Well, Stache even said in the postgame that he thought we would just turn it on and come back and win the game. It's not just as simple as showing up, and that's something he's really had to learn this year. I'm pretty sure he had already assumed we would beat Troy. It didn't take long to look up and see 17-0 on the board. In every non-SELA game we've played except for Marshall, we have dug a deep first half hole. The staff is good at making adjustments, but we have to start games better. Had we not gone down 10-0 to ECU, we would have won that game too.

Well, it's a learning experience.

Coach has learned how us "other half" live. And it ain't so good all the time.

It has been a rather radical adjustment for him no doubt and what many of us call "mistakes" are for him WTF moments where he is left wondering why we can't execute on stuff that would be simple business at a program like the Arkansas...

While he adjusts his sights we need to get over ourselves.

I think this coach actually can move us places. If you whining a-holes drag him down to our level he'll never have an opportunity to pull us up to his.

I have seen nothing other than freshman coach mistakes to suggest that we don't have the right man for the program.

I have seen plenty to suggest that we need a new QB however...
