The Offense
It feels like Ellis Johnson, Hopson all over again. Run up the middle into a brick wall almost every play. They stack the line because they know we only run up the middle or throw a deep ball.

I miss Fedora's swing passes, or a short pass outside. Or maybe just run the ball every now and then to the outside. Not just up the middle cause they know that's all we do.

RE: The Offense
Obviously, Hall has had success in the past wherever he’s gone. We just don’t have talent. And the offensive scheme we’re running with said lack of talent is boring, slow, and awful.

RE: The Offense
The size & athleticism of our O-line is middling FCS level right now. USA pushed us around & it was a stalemate against Grambling for a half. We were in the same boat in Monken’s first year, so he brought in a transfer QB & threw it every down. Our current QB was playing baseball for Taylorsville 3 months ago, so that’s probably not very smart. Basically, our offense right now until Keyes develops a bit more is “hope Gore slips through a sliver of daylight & breaks one.”

It’d help if somebody would catch the ball when Keyes gets it to them.

RE: The Offense
If the offensive line is so bad why run up the middle so much. Swing passes, short passes to the outside, running to the outside. This would all help a poor offensive line would it not? I mean I'm no coach so I know I could be wrong on that. It's just that every play the opposing team is bunched on our line like we're 4th and goal even when it's 1rst and 10 for us. It feels like they know we are going to run it straight into them.

RE: The Offense
Bama will have to be favored by 52-55 Id imagine.

It all starts and ends with this fat, slow SWAC offensive line. Its bad. And yes, seems like they would spread out more or at least throw some quick stuff to open up some running lanes a tad. He apparently is running a fairly complicated system. Well hell, you can simplify it some and still try something different than what we have seen these last 3 games. It sure doesnt LOOK complicated.

I think he will get it done, but just need some talent especially on the OLINE. He needs to hit the portal HARD and bring in several OLinemen.....several! Get some top JUCO guys as well, if can....TOP ones though. Defense has looked pretty darn good. Did all they could and more, considering the O did nothing to help. Keyes will be good. Just needs time to develop and a competent Oline. Our guys have to catch it when it hits them in their hands too. That would at least make up for some of his bad passes.

Our punter should be All American.

RE: The Offense
alabama will beat us by 50 at halftime. They will have a running clock in the second half just to make the game finish faster.
