    Make the offensive linemen run the ball all day on Monday and Tuesday.

    On Wednesday and Thursday make the coaches suit up and run it.

    You're just being a negative person.

    A TE and a FB wouldn't hurt either.

    Will be difficult task especially given that practice will probably be off the whole week

    They're going to practice. I'm in Gainesville. Even if power goes out it hasn't been that bad here. Practice will happen.
    What do we do to fix this team? Have someone other than Nuss call plays and make the game plan.
    But really the little things. Addressing simple assignments. The players that totally blew it last week ( Fred Johnson, Shawn Davis, etc) need to learn from mistakes and have a great week of practice or they should be riding the bench vs UT.
    They gotta do something to address the problems with the running game. Bad scheme, bad blocking or whatever else.
    I think if we leave Franks in there the whole game and let him actually play they will be ok. Not playing it safe. Throw it down field. Throw it to the TEs
    I want to see Kemore Gamble.

    I think if Mac loses the UT game, especially due to poor O, nationally he is going to start getting alot more heat.

    We may have the best talent pool in the world but we have enough to do better than we have shown, particularly on offense. There is only 2 conclusions I can come to. Either this staff is totally clueless at player development, getting a game plan together and executing it, or they are just lazy and too busy trying to be liked by the players.

    This is really the only thing this staff can do - in one week - to "fix" this. It won't "fix" everything that is wrong, obviously, but it should buy time and allow for even a slight improvement.

    I'm tired of all the cuteness of the offense - the shifts, motions, swapping out of players, etc. Just play f'ing football!

    The only other thing besides what's been mentioned is obvious - replace the OC.

    Yeah we DONT HAVE any blocking TEs or FBs. All our TEs are basically Kalif sized, just larger WRs essentially.

    Spread players for a grind-it-out Big 10, 1980s offense.

    Dave Baldwin's CSU attack would have worked well with out players but Mac decided to go the Bama route

    Its not the losing that bothers me its the total lack of effort and getting $hit stomped in the process. No glimmer of hope, face facts Mac is a loser and eventually another big loss like last week will rear its ugly head.

    Yeah, surely we have an OL that's been saving his hands.

    I'm fearing Mac's rear is his ugly head.

    I'm going to chose to be positive going into this one. Anyone heard anything about the other 9 suspended guys?
