    Gators went on the road and beat the spread in getting their 9th win of the season. All in all a pretty good day in my book.

        And to bring this thread full circle, had some friends over and we drank beer/bourbon, ate queso and chips and tacos, and are topping it off with wings tonight. I’m thoroughly enjoying this - including the prerequisite Donk (apparently banned again) melt down.

          He missed adding in what beers he drank but other than that - solid.

          That’s how to roll. In retrospect, the game wasn’t all that exciting but you wouldn’t have known it at my place. Just had a great time.

            Uhhh....no, we didn't. did we run more routes than a hs team? yes. did we run a varied route tree relative to othe D1 football teams? no. we didnt exploit matchups or outscheme anybody. we relied on being way more talented instead of adjusting, which is why we did worse against them than a bunch of other schools. you're trying to pretend like it's my bias, but the results side with me.
            route numbering is sort of a rough draft. bc of his shoulder position, youd prob write it as a 9. regardless of how you want to number it, the fact that it was a seam fade and not a corner (which would work better against that coverage) is the whole issue. that is literally the point. we run a seam fade vs a corner in that scenario to simplify our passing game. but that's why it was a hard catch.
            bc that's the only other option... or we could go to LSU's O, but guess you don't care about winning big games (see what I did there?).

            @SeabeeGator cant QUOTE u cuz u got funky with it somewhere.

            - our guys will be open against every single team we play, bc we have one of the best wr corps in the country. the different is if they're wide open like against vandy or going for contested catches like today. grimes was technically open on a long catch today even though it had nothing to do with scheme. cager was open against us last week entirely bc of scheme. lsu completed huge passes to wide open guys against bama bc of outscheming them. if u can't see the difference between outscheming and just out-talenting, then I don't know what to tell you.

            - In a seam fade, the wr looks inside. Hammond ran a seam fade the entire way and swain had run one earlier so I'm guessing it was the correct right. this is all fact. we can agree to disagree on this, but I think we both know who is talking from a lot more experience. can u point to one corner that we ran to make me think that was the route?

            - route #s are often a rough draft since coaches tweak routes a ton and run tons of variations outside the 9 numbered. in this case, we're debating whether it's a 7 or 9. I think it's a 9, bc u couldnt bunch and run that seam fade and a true 9. theyd be on top of each other. u could run that and couple it with a 7, bc theyd pull defenders differently. that's as clear as I can say it so it can't be confused with 'backpedaling'. feel free to explain why you'd # it differently and why. I'm sure somebody has.

            @SeabeeGator

            u can go with danielson, but he's wrong. possibly, bc I'm guessing a seam fade didnt exist when he played. no reason to think otherwise. isnt the QB inside on a regular fade or a back shoulder and that's where the ball goes? or just a 9 from the seam? ball is over the inside shld. hence why its a 9 that fades outside...

            Also, an 8 is a post.

            You’re probably right. He has no reason to keep up with the game. It makes way more sense to throw the ball into coverage than to the open area on the outside where only the WR can catch it.

            8’s just a rough estimate. Could be a 10, 13, or 64.

                By your standards, not by mine. Now if we scored two or three more TDs in the first half, one or two more in the second, and did not have to struggle to find open receivers that would have been easy. See Vandy for a good example. An easy win gets the entire team to play late in the game, I don't remember seeing that here.

                My standard is the perfection one, I understand it is high but only then do you achieve what say Bama, Clemson, OSU, and LSU are seeing today.

                And if you were a GA fan would you consider that "easy"???

                That's certainly possible, but I still believe that Trask is the superior overall option at this point in time. At least a part of my exasperation with the handling of the QB rotation goes back to the ten years of sheer mediocrity we've experienced in general - and at QB in particular. IMO, Trask has far exceeded all expectations by any reasonable standard, and it flummoxes the hell out of me that we pulled the most productive QB we've had in years in a must win game that was still "losable."

                I suppose the possible loss of continuity and overall effectiveness, at what I perceived to be a pivotal moment, would be a better way to describe my concerns. I'm old and grouchy though so I even take my own opinions with a grain of salt these days. Take it for what it's worth - which may not be much.
