Horrible play call.  Get your receivers beyond the sticks Beck.

Totally agree; however, in order to give Shane enough time they have to max protect with only 2 WRs in the pattern.  They have to get rid of the ball quickly.  It' sad but true.

I have stayed off of the thread because I wanted to analyze the game and not be influenced by what anyone said.

Many times on failed plays, whether pass  or run or sack, the guilty party was Nickleson.  That is just bad luck due to injury.  Y'all can disagree if you want, but go back and watch it again.  I did.

I agree about keeping Warren in as an H-back.  I don't know why they took him out, unless he is injured in some way, which wouldn't be out of the question.

I won't criticize Boo, or Beck, or any other offensive player as long as Tristan Nickelson is playing a tackle position.  He is the liability, but is playing because we have no one else.  Not much to do about it.

    • Open note to Chris Nelson and Todd Orlando: Coach took away your belly rub celebration for fear of a taunting penalty. Understandable. I recommend you consider and allow a subdued version of the belly rub while walking back to the huddle, as in "man them sacks taste good," done personally and for the cameras -- and they will look -- so as not to show the crowd or the other team and thus no taunting. Problem solved.  #don't kill the belly rub
    • I think Ingram was hitting 7+ per click, not sure. Forgive him, for he was here the last couple years when 3 ypc was the best we could hope for.
    • You're not missing a thing.  I was just making an observation about 4.1 ypc being kinda of pedestrian in today's college football. There are 7 players averaging over 8 ypc, 12 over 7, 33 over 6, 77 averaging over 5, and 124 averaging over 4. Watson currently sits at #122.
