Yeah, other teams had Wuhan too and dont look tiny. We look tiny bc we havent landed an ILB for years, only landed a couple of DTs in three classes and are trying to play a bunch of 240 pounds kids on DL and 210-220 pounders at LB.
Law, we know. We know. Every post we know. Just accept the Big 12 style is the norm now and you will be happier. And so will we. Just sayin'.
it isn't the norm anywhere except the big 12. no one else in the SEC are playing by these tiny defense rules.
I’ve missed these. Great write-up Duke. Glad I can say I now know the legend. Thanks for joining.
No argument and if you compare body types with our OL, the OL looks more typical of what you’d expect. Point is that the best thing that can be done to repair under-sized defenders lies in the strength and nutrition program, both of which were interrupted. That said, we got a little more behind-er, so to speak. Until the recruiting deficiencies on this side of the ball are rectified and the strength and nutrition part is more normalized (a lot of that improves the longer they are together), then coaching your @ss off better take place.
The pleasure was all mine cowboy!
No doubt that Trask is far and away the best QB that we have and ran the offense to perfection yesterday. He was just spreading the ball around and dropping dimes left and right everywhere. Really nice to see the O-Line actually give Trask time to pass and protect the QB. We only gave up 1 sack. Hopefully throughout the season we can keep the offense open as we saw a ton of throws down the field and not much side to side bs at all.
Couple of questions that maybe some of you can answer. 1) On an Ole Miss safety blitz, our RB stood the safety up and Trask completed a nice pass (maybe a Pitts TD). Which RB did that? 2) Trask's arm seemed stronger. Is it? Is that even possible? I have always felt that long, limber arms equal speed, i.e., Tebow was muscle bound. How might Trask have increased his arm strength? 3) Did our big, young DTs play much yesterday? 4) Is there any chance that his success with Trask and the new OC might change Mullins' philosophy?
I am rewatching the game and Trask is throwing dimes. The kid can pass. So glad the donk was so wrong.
1) Pierce got a shout from the announcers on one pass pro. Not sure if it is the one you referenced, but given the overall protection yesterday, I think it’s safe to say the backs are doing their job in compliment with the OL in this small sample. 2) Getting stronger along with refining the throwing motion can increase the power behind the throw and it appeared that Trask had a little more zip on several of his throws. More importantly, his touch and timing was better than ever. 3) Dexter got some snaps and made some plays. His INT off of the Brenton Cox deflection was a great play in his first college game. High hopes where he’s concerned; still young though. Not sure about others. 4) Mentioned in the OP that we attacked vertically more than we have previously and it wasn’t certain whether it was because of Johnson or Mullen. Makes me think that there is some change in the attack philosophy. Regardless of the inspiration, it has to be signed off by the HC. I’ll add that I think understanding more fully what Trask can do with great receivers and better OL play allows you to be more vertically aggressive. Who knows that we may even start seeing some verticals with Toney running the under? Wouldn’t that be a novel approach?!
Thanks, cover. Much appreciated.
It’s beyond time for banning anyone using “trash” for Trask. Just effing deal with it.
Can you imagine watching film as a team, seeing Stiner’s performance, and then see the coaches still start him? Crazy.
I know you like to quail hunt because you're always on point! I hope the return of a few of the members of our secondary eliminates some of the confusion we saw yesterday on defense. One thing is for sure, Shawn Davis needs to be on the field a lot. I have to give Eddie Haskell some credit, he recognizes and knows how to attack a weakness in the defense as good as anybody.
One thing I didn’t mention was the Trask / EJ sweepstakes that has gripped many of our fans. @GatorTruth133 made a great point to this in his recap: Trask showed today that unless you are placating Jones, there is no reason to put him in unless the game is out of reach. Look, by all rights EJ is a great athlete and has potential as a signal caller and leader. A good friend that I coached with for a number years who moved to Heard Co. raves about what a great person EJ is as well as a football player. Glad he’s a Gator and know that if he’s both committed and patient, he’ll get his chance. But right now, he’s behind Trask and I think whatever trust issues, maybe even the optics(?), that may have concerned Mullen are assuaged. 400+ and 6 TDs on top of last year should convince you. I’m all for having a package for EJ in certain situations as opposed to giving him series that risk disrupting the flow of the game.
Fear the running game wont work without EJ and somehow the passing game falls apart? by the way what do you think about our passing game playbook yesterday? there were a lot of things I've never seen before. am I hallucinating?
My reason for wanting EJ to play more is the possibility of injury to Trask. I was annoyed that our defense wouldn't let EJ take the reins.
The baddest Mofo in a pink shirt in the history of the world.
Is it just the new OC or are the drugs beginning to kick in?
