we are not a great team. we may be good, but not great. outplayed again in this half. this does not look good.

I agree, i would bring in gage or johnson and see if we can get a spark.

right now, this looks like a loser to me.

But this offense is not good with Ben, that is for sure.

I don't disagree but why after that big play do we take our sweet ass time, run the ball, take our sweet ass time again and call some play that has 3 backs in the backfield? Something is really wrong with those decisions. We should have gone up tempo after that completion to Dylan and kept putting pressure on.

Like I said in the other post. Because dinucci is not good enough. He can’t do that.

Did you see that 2 minute drill against Elon? It was awful.

It’s not his thing. We are limited offensively, and teams are figuring it out.

Time to go in a different direction. I was a big Nooch fan early on but it’s clear he’s flawed

Our offense is able to bully mediocre and crappy teams. Really struggles against higher level though. I wouldn't mind seeing some personnel changes after half. Our execution is too slow.

That won't help the crappy play calling

I agree with this. The team (and some of the coaching decisions IMO) have regressed quite a bit since week 1. If this is the best our offense can do (and if DD is right in that we can't even run a hurry up offense b/c Dinucci), then the coaches need to make the tough decision and bring in Cole or Gage. Otherwise, we're heading for another loss.

A lot of you guys got fooled by the scrambles and moxie against nc state.

But when you assess his qb play, it’s clear he isn’t all that.

Again, I’m not saying make a switch necessarily. I don’t know if gage or cole are any better. Only the coaches have seen enough to assess that.

What I do know is what I see from the offense with dinucci leading it. And it is not championship caliber and we will not go far in the playoffs. Assuming we get there.

At what point should Cole or Gage come out? I think we’re now at that point.

Donnie Kirkpatrick has lost his freaking mind. His play calling absolutely sucks. Is he studying film of our opens at all? Third and One. You don’t run wide and take a loss. Straight ahead. Pathetic. 1 minute to go and we waste 40 seconds running two plays. We are in trouble. Houston, you’ve got a problem.

This I also agree with. The play calling has really been uninspired and conservative lately.

Hello there Dukes fans!

Just watched the last 4 minutes of JMU's first half? Another tough game for your team by the looks of it. Hopefully they'll get it together in the second half.

Good luck!

Bingo. The OC needs to get his head out.

We’ll see if MH can light a fire under the team’s ass coming out for the second half.

Thank you!! This is what I've been saying. This is bigger than the QB play; this is also an offensive coordinator that appears to have lost his edge or inspiration.

No. It’s not QB play. It’s play calling.

Man, I must be watching a different game than you guys.

The play calling his been more open today than all year.

Yea, the 3rd and 1 call was strange, but haven’t we all been saying we can’t run up the middle for **** all year?

Guess what? Donnie has called more outside the tackle runs today and counter runs today than all friggin year! And we’ve had success.

Oh, and the bootleg call at the end? Haven’t seen that all year. Worked great.

You guys have been asking for reverses. We ran one with dean for good yardage.

He even called a downfield throw to Riley that Ben threw a good ball on and Riley dropped it. Is that Donnie’s fault?

Does he need to call the perfect play every time? Seems to me he’s done a good job today. At some point, guys have to execute too.

You seem to just want to defend the coaching decisions at all cost at this point. Your argument about horrendous clock management and play calling when there is 1 minute left in the half and we just created some momentum with a big play because the "QB can't run a hurry up offense" (paraphrasing) shows that you're not willing to place blame where it's due (and btw, plenty of blame should be blamed on the QB but there's blame to go around).
