RE: Ohio Game
Dear Luckeyone,
Coach Creighton at his press conference said the interception for a touchdown was his call. He said he should have known better.

So Creighton told Roback to throw a pick 6? The kid is a 5th year Senior! Sure Creighton allowed him to run the play (20% at fault), but Roback still forced a very difficult cross field throw, into coverage, when he could have just as easily thrown it away (80% at fault).

It's not Creighton's job to protect a Sr QB, with supposed NFL talent, from himself.

Still pi**es me off just thinking how poorly the whole thing was handled.

Roback has regressed, back to some poor habits at times. Running game needs to improve somehow.

I'm not so sure that he has regressed so much as the OFFENSE has (regressed).

A very good running game makes a good QB look great.

But a mediocre running game can make a very good QB look more ordinary.

P.S. I consider Roback a very good QB.

RE: Ohio Game
Well we're are approaching the 1/2 way point and the defense so far is 4real and the offense is a WIP. Hustle Belt concludes the same thing I noticed vs Ohio in that maybe we should run dive plays vs counters to Improve run game.

RE: Ohio Game
Dear Friends,
Maybe my perspective of our run game was off, because from what I saw were halfback dives between the guard and tackle positions, not counter plays. Like I have said earlier, what about sweeps, screen passes, reverses, flea flickers? Other then the two pass play that almost got Eastern a touchdown, very predictable run game.
As far as the passing game, why no deep passes down the middle? What about any pass over the middle?

Who is Kenneth Bailey? I'm 99% sure from reading his 'analysis' that this guy never played a down of football, and it obvious he knows very, very little about the game, or our team.

"maybe they need to try running off tackle. I think Shaq Vann could be fast enough to do this." We tried to run off tackle all day. Shaq is not even close to 'fast', especially this year.

"EMU passing game seems okay though"......with the exception of that game losing pick 6, and way too many 50/50 backfoot throws down the sideline. The final play of the game was a perfect example. I think it was 4th and 5. Instead of an actual play, or any type of thought or reads from Brogan, he just steps back and lobs it 20 yards down the sideline, without it even registering that the receiver had been basically cut off from a clean route, and had pretty much given up on the play. Ball just sails way over his head with zero chance to make a play and the game is over. 01-lauramac2

Ken Barna, you are hereby nominated as the new EMU Offensive Coordinator!

RE: Ohio Game
Dear EagleTough,
Thank you for the nomination. I think Coach Creighton would have something to say about the nomination. We all just like to put our two cents worth into what we think could/should be accomplished. Some of us have played high school football, and some may have played in college, but that's what makes us experts. HA-HA.

I have DirecTV. Does that make me an expert? 03-lmfao I can watch 25 games a week (not that I would).
