  1. Not bagging on the D, but man, when your O can hang 40+ on ANYONE, you should win 100% of the time. D has to get stops, period.... This true frosh QB is gonna be great. He's Colt part 2 in my book. In fact, he's ahead of Colt this early in his career. He throws a great ball, specifically his long ball for the most part. Looks like he has great football savvy. D has to get more push to hurry the QB. Can't allow QB to sit..Can't happen. Specials have to be great, Punt, PR, KOR, KOC, FG/EPT.... A lot to clean up and get fixed...difference this year and moving forward, looks like Coach Strong has the talent to win!
  2. Play side guard whiffs on the 3 tech and backside pursuit still doesn't blow it completely up. I love this play..
  3. Tom Herman is a brilliant man. He's part of the MENSA High IQ society. For those that do not know about it, here is how you become a member. "Membership of Mensa is open to persons who have attained a score within the upper two percent of the general population on an approved intelligence test that has been properly administered and supervised." Along with his passion, desire and willingness to do the work, his intelligence level is through the roof! So, yes.....he gets it!!! If you have to ask what "it" is, then you don't have "it".
  4. There are no other changes you can do with your offensive staff once you have replaced your OC.. The only other change Strong can make, is to hire another OC right after the season, IF that will suffice. Yes, you can change your OL coach, your QB coach, your WR coach, your TE coach, and your RB coach, but all those coaches with the exception of your OL coach, all fall in line with your OC''s demands. Typically, your OL coach and OC work very closely together. If they don't, you got the wrong OC.. I do not profess to know the answer, other than recruiting AT THIS POINT. What I will say, is that recruiting usually is the answer. I said "usually"...here is what I do know. It seems we have been behind the 8 ball with recruiting, development of the recruits and team play for some time. The one position you HAVE to get right, is your QB..Everything else on the O, comes in a distant 2 nd place. Heard has talent and can be really good. He's young, very young..I think he can be developed, but that takes a minute....Strong will have another season to show where the trend of the program is heading. If it trends down, then the state of the program will be the proof in the pudding. I believe Strong will be judged by the "State of the program' more than he will be judged by wins and losses on the short. It will depend on how we win and how we lose next year. One more year will be what he gets, UNLESS the bottom completely falls out for the rest of the season. We need to win these last few games, or at least show we have a competitive product we are trouncing out on the field!
  5. Great analysis, but this is so much simpler than all the explanations....Bottom line - The D-line doesn't get there!!!! This is a quick game throw. However, the QB buys more time. I'd say he has close to 5 seconds. At the end of the day, most QB's can find someone open if they have this much time..This is on the D-line!! EVEN if the QB did't complete the pass.
  6. True on your analysis, however I will say that sometimes the other team wins too! This is a double move post corner, with the receiver running a very good, if not darn near perfect route...Guys, covering that route when run like this, is very difficult even for NFLer's!!!
  7. This is a game film study that happens in the film room. This has to have been seen before at some point during the year that Texas aligns to THIS FORMATION IN THE RED ZONE in ZERO, WHILE BRINGING 7 AND COVERING WITH 4. Thus, the reason they get picked. Bad alignments HAD to have been seen before. Why? Because this is a rhythm throw on the 3rd step. The QB is "spot" throwing where he expects the receiver to be on his throw, since there is NO read because it's straight up man coverage.
  8. For whatever it's worth, Nike has more products to fit the entire athletic department for all sports as well as many more choices per item. They also make better deals because they can. We have looked closely at what everyone in this business has to offer, and it's surprisingly not even close. Those that choose differently, either have a relationship that draws them away from NIKE, or a deal is made that Nike choses not to compete for....or, there is something I am missing, which happens often.
  9. Thanks for the kind words Aaron. Hey, for whatever it's worth, my last name is spelled KELLEY...
  10. What's up Echeese? I'm here in houston and coach at HBU. My mother passed a few years back. It was a blessing as she had advanced stages of breast cancer that spread to her bones. She was simply AWESOME. However, time heals and the memories will last forever. Hope you are doing well. As Aaron and I talk often about getting together when the season and recruiting is over, we all need to get together and grab a cold beverage. And lastly, I was much more lucky than good!! Peace brother and Hook'em
  11. Wow...didn't see that coming, but that is what makes this rival so awesome....Throw out the records...They competed their asses off, and did what they needed to...Hook'em
  12. So true...AND if you hit a few of these plays, it softens up the box which allows you to run the ball..
  13. Actually, the choice is to run the ball here. I know, I know, you are counting the safety as being in the box, but the power is being run away from him, so I would not count him as a box player, in this sense. You have an apex player playing the overhang, thus as you point out, you have 3 on 2. That being said, had the ball been snapped where the QB could immediately field the ball, the ball would have been out faster which would allow receiver at the bottom to not have to hold his block as long, which would allow the slot to have caught the and get up the sideline, which would have probably given us a first down. Again, I am counting 6 in the box with 6 blockers, So the run option is there since the power is being run into the boundary. However, there are too many breakdowns for this play to work with Heard spitting the ball. It takes too long because of the bad snap. I tend to to believe that this play only "looks" like an RPO and is a called "spit" play.
  14. Yes we can blame the OL, HOWEVER, you have max protection off a playaction, no deep safety, ball should be out to the X, NOW!!! Sack should have never taken place!!
  15. I agree. RPO's are basically illegal because the Linemen always are engaging past the LOS and blocking downfield. They were supposed to crack down on this, but they really haven't. Happens every ball game in College ball.
  16. I don't even know where to start, so I won't. I can tell you from experience that starting up a program is a very tall order. That said, my beloved Horns look very much like a start up program. So many holes to fill, with only so many fingers. Seriously, there was a moment that I just wanted to the clock to keep running....Man...
  17. I think this got called wrong. Either that, or Burt is wrong..Can't imagine you would call a drive concept from the boundary and have something that would bring burt back across the field where he and the "X" would end up in the same place. I think it was supposed to be a boundary Drive concept matched with a Smash concept to the field. The back tells you it is a Snag concept as he is the 3rd receiver to the field, however, Drive should trump the Smash with the back, which should pull him to the boundary running a flare. Your analysis is spot on, but the hook that Burt is running is a bust.. Not to mention, as you have noted, the play never had a chance as the Rt tackle takes the cheese and gets caught in the twist trap.
  18. Honestly Ryan, that is just a Tango stunt. It should be nothing that Texas shouldn't be able to handle. As you have noted, the left guard is who blows it up. The guards and Tackles have to be able to sift that and pass each of the DL twisting off to each other. That said, it is a high level of play to perfect this. It is not easy, but TEXAS OL should be able to handle this.
  19. Yes, it is PI..That said, it rarely is called when the receiver is covered with man coverage, particularly when he releases inside as if he's running a slant. Honestly, the receiver does a great job pulling this off. The h gets out in the flat, because this guy was digging our our DE's all day. When a DE has a an H-back that is a brawler, it wears on them, and what the end up doing is start avoiding the collision and soft shoulder the H-back. The H-back here, sells it as if he's coming at the DE again.. That is tough in the red zone and the safety gets out of position because of the sell. These plays you are diagraming are spot on.. Thx
  20. This coverage is what we call Cov 5. You rush 5, drop 6. As apposed to Cov. 3 where you rush 4 and drop 7. Both cov. 5 and cov. 3 are a single high safety dividing the field into 3rds. What was supposed to happen was the field corner who dropped, who is definitely playing zone (he turns inside) on the number 1 receiver, thus would be looking to pass him off to the roof player (safety), and then would pick up the wheel by the number 2 receiver. At least that is what should happen. As you have shown in your diagram, often you can get the corner to chase the post with he and the free safety covering the Number 1, while number 2 is skating up the sideline uncovered. Not sure that happens here, because you see the Free already rolling strong to field pre-snap.
  21. Gotta give the TE (86) and the H (44) credit here..That TE was a boy dawg here..He blocked his tail off, but you are right about Jenkins...Dang, he has to get off that block! That H digs out Hughes, and the rest is history! I will say, that Q power is an awesome freakin' call.. One of the rare instances where you get 11 vs 11...Love the numbers offensively when you can run your QB, ESPECIALLY in the red zone! Again, great job... You need to come break film for me. I'd probably be able to get home at a decent hour! ha
  22. True...and please know, that your analysis is darn good, it's fun and very thorough. I just frequently hear complaints about pass rush when most have no clue what is actually going on. Pressures have to convert to sacks...Cuz you know and I know, that there is NO secondary in the world that can cover for 7+ seconds!! Thanks
  23. Actually, I can't blame the D-line here. It's an odd front rushing 3 vs 5, and yet still, they force the QB to have to scramble. Thus, they did their job. I actually believe this was supposed to be a form of Tampa 2 and the Mike backer screwed up the coverage by not dropping deep enough. They man the corner in the boundary and play halves to the field. The Mike is wrong here. Your point about "tackling" is noted...Have to be able to tackle!
  24. I think there are a few points to consider that add to your outstanding commentary. 1) You have a corner playing 8 yds off the X receiver with no scuff player underneath. A quick slant or even a 5yd hitch is really the call here. Cal is unsound with this current structure. 2) Heard's read is the mike backer on the RPO. The Center and the play side guard allow leakage which force heard to attempt to throw off balance. As you mention when you count the numbers, Cal has the advantage. We have 5 to block 6. So, reading the Mike and throwing off him is correct. (watching the play, had he handed it, we would have gashed them) however, that seems because of improper alignment from Cal, which SHOULD go against the norm.) In other words, 9 out of 10 times, MIKE should make that tackle. This leads to my point, the MIKE initially steps up..That being said, as soon as the MIKE steps up, ball should be out, thus the Center and play side guard losing leverage, should never have come into play. 3) If heard just gets rid of the ball on time, none of this should ever happened. And that will be the coaching point all week to him from his Coach."Get the ball out". 4) Lastly, you mention the RB's running routes when they don't get the hand off. In an RPO, the back does not know if it is a pull or a give.(Even when the RB's KNOW the numbers are on their side, SOMETIMES the QB screws up and misreads it!!! I see it everyday) uhhgggg. That being said, the OL is supposed to be run blocking as to set the defense up to think run, so the LB's step up, which allows for a throw behind them based on them being out of alignment. The RB's HAVE to run through as if they have the ball when it is pulled, as to keep the LBers having to step up and respect the run. That is why we don't coach them to run routes. If anything, we want them to carry out the run as if they have it...That makes this hell to defend!! Thanks again for your analysis!!! Great stuff.
  25. I think the question why cov 2 on 3rd and 7? I would have rather seen qtrs called here to have forced the low ball as you mentioned. However, give the offense credit here. The QB threaded the needle. They didn't play the coverage bad as much as a smash concept, which they run here, perfectly attacks the corner with a high low read (again as you perfectly point out).. Great job
