They’ve all spent their redshirts. You’re wasting their eligibility.

Dont forget that the new NCAA rules permit redshirts to play in a few games early in the season without loosing their redshirt year. I think it is the first 4 games of the season , so some of the newcomers who have been on the field may still be eligible to sit out the rest of the year without penalty.

Stanley- Used redshirt in 2016, medical redshirt in ‘17. Can’t get on the field.

Wooden-transferred in, sat out last season. If he’s hurt, why not say so if he’s not getting touches any ways? He looked great in spring game.....

Haden, can’t even get 5 touches in a game. He literally has no business getting touches before Wooden and Stanley.

Jermaine Brown- why redshirt him if he has homerun speed? We need that on the field immediately.



Since Spencer’s got the records that coach was trying to get him, why not let the other guys spread the field with outside runs so Spencer can beat up on the guys in the middle later in the game or on short yardage situations.

Devils advocate, Spencer is a great blocker in the passing game and we keep our RB in as a blocker on a lot of the deep shots we take.

-24 against Alabama State. Kennesaw and Tuskegee put up 31 and 42 on them.
-31 against Akron. Other teams have put up 42, 45, 35, and 37
-13 against WKU

Our only good performance was against South Alabama and none of the 4 teams we have played have had good defenses. WKU was the only decent one.

66.67% on red zone conversion. 16.67% on 4th down conversions. 35.85% on 3rd down conversions. Not great stats against bad defenses.

If you cant run the ball, you wont be consistent. I never imagined this many runs of one yard or less in 4 games against our least talented competition. Hard to pick up fourth and one, when you cant open a hole against even Alabama St. with all your #1s. Weak Oline is hard to hide.

Now we will start seeing pressure up the middle since our center is out, and Tyler really struggled with pressure last week.

We have not recruited well in the interior Oline for the past two years, and are patching it all together this year with mostly jucos. Not sure what the solution for next year will be when we have all of the offense except Dufour and Parham back. And most of our defense.

Solve the Oline recruiting, development and injury issues and next year UAB is on the verge of a New Years day team, maybe undefeated. If not, we win lose 3 to 4 games.

We’ve had holes on 4th and 1 that Spencer hasn’t hit too. There are at least two occasions I can think of where he bounced outside when all he had to do was lower his head and hit the hole.

Yes, the struggling ground game is not only the oline. Thats fair. Spencer doesnt look like a confident back this year. This year I see occasional glimpses of what we saw in the Florida game when he was a freshman and they dominated our Oline.

His yards per carry have gone down every season. I don't knock the kid as much as the coaching/system. Erdely went from 16 TD/4 INT his first season to 7 and 7 last year.

We've been the opposite of a well oiled machine on that side of the ball. Our D is AAC level. Unfortunately our O is stuck in the OVC. When Kennesaw can double up on points vs the same opponent, you got serious problems.
