This. The 4th and 1 plays become so much harder when you have to have the play develop from deep in the backfield and qb sneak isn't even an option.

It doesn't make sense on the surface but that response makes sense. It's also more successful.

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

Bobby and Brian Scott are ******* retards when it comes to play calling. Nothing new there. Placing the blame on a 17 yr QB for that geez what a wuss/puss.

I think our playbook is literally 1 page! And I think the back is blank!!

When will we quit hearing the 17 yr old excuse. He has played a half season now and has plent of game experience. Next year will it be he is only 18?

On an interesting sidenote I have a friend who was a head coach in the Big East for 10 years and he told me when recruiting receivers only 33% can catch a football in college mostly due to the physical contact. Totally blew me away with that statement as he was specifically referring to Duke but I can see it with our guys as well.

RE: 4th and 1
Think about how surprised a defense would be if our QB lined up under center, with #61 in the backfield. Sneak it and have 61 there to push him forward. Since we have never done that before in a game it is either money or they call a timeout.

The blame on I believe the second 4th and 1 is on BW for calling time out. NT looks a little confused snap it and go, take advantage of that. The timeout gave them pause and based on our past they new what was calling.

Would someone explain to me how our OLine in a two point stand is going to get leverage on the DLine in three point stances for short yardage? The physics does not work for me. Little help guys.

On a completely unrelated note, not a big fan of the word retard. Just a thought.

+100. I’ve got a special needs daughter. There are plenty of other words in the English language to use.
