  1. Man... you seem to like to get into these silly fights. Every time you do this I end up trying to explain that you’re arguing against things in didn’t say. It’s exhausting. You come across as petulant and snarky. With regard to QB, I just disagree. You don’t want athletes using fine motor skills to be afraid of losing their jobs... or even to get too pumped up. It hurts performance. It helps if you are using gross motor skills (linemen and defensive players for instance). Example.... if you’re walking down a dark alley, and a pit Bull startles you, you’ll have incredible speed getting to your car (gross motor skills) but have a hard time getting the key in the door (fine motor skills). If you disagree that’s cool. No need to get snarky or respond with 8 “lol’s.” And (sigh)I never said coaches teach a WR to “go get clocked for a pass.” You “asserted” that or pulled it out of an orifice. Coaches expect WRs to go up for a pass in traffic, and / or expect them to focus on the ball when they know a hit is coming. This may require motivation. Yes I know you played QB... can we just disagree and be nice?
  2. QB is a different animal. You don’t want your QB to be afraid that he’s losing his job due to mistakes. It’s a difference of fine vs gross motor skills. With regard to benching players - I’m specifically talking about a lack of effort. Lack of effort should find you on the bench. It should not be tolerated. I posted a video somewhere on hornsports where specific players were cited as not pursuing hard on defense aka lack of effort. You’re arguing against something I didn’t mean to say. I’m well aware not all players are extraordinary players. I am saying that Football players are asked to do extraordinary things. Your average joe isn’t going to sprint 40 yards and run into someone sprinting towards him... or go up for a pass knowing he will be clocked in the air. THIS requires a coach who can motivate. That is what I’m saying.
  3. I disagree. Sure motivating people to play hard is a part of coaching football. A big part. The fact that several players lacked effort and started all year is a concerning bullet-point for this coach. Doing what football players do is extra-ordinary. Good coaches motivate players to do things that go against human nature. One way to motivate is the bench on the sideline. Sark chose not to use it. Again, I’m not advocating he get run out of town. Only pointing out that I understand concern... even off the cuff emotional reactions like “fire the coach!” There’s good reason behind the concern.
  4. Then again.... how many years people on hornsports give Sark, or when forum chat people call for a coach to be fired doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. Sarks first Texas team got progressively worse sans the very last game. And his players quit trying. That’s a decent reason for concern. For the record, I never said he should be fired. Not that it matters.
  5. Okay, yea..... kind of the point I was trying to make. That Venables isn’t necessarily a “great hire”’as a head coach. gotcha.
  6. Could you expound… Discontent? Riley? Grinch?
  7. He’s a great coordinator, no doubt! But that doesn’t necessarily mean he will be a great head coach… A little more of a gamble hiring a coordinator.
  8. This is what I really don’t like about it. Think less, fly to the ball. Robinson corrected a horrible defense mid season with that formula.
  9. 1. Casey was the best QB for this team because he’s got a great knack for avoiding a dam break pass rush. He was a good QB before hurting his thumb. Afterwards he was below average. 2. Hudson looked really good in the one game where he had a semblance of pass protection (WVU). He might be a good QB but without any protection... surprise, he’s not. 3. It wouldn’t surprise me too much if our starting QB next year is a portal transfer.
  10. Sticking with a coach through a bad season or four can and does pay off sometimes! Sincerely, Jim Harbaugh
  11. Steve Spurrier once said, “I’m head coach for the offense Bob Stoops is for the defense” when asked about Stoopsy by OUs search committee. It can work other ways, but you certainly MUST hire the right guy to “run your defense.”
  12. Yes... and Sark has had 2 other head coaching jobs at big time schools.
  13. Good evaluation on where we are and what needs to happen:
  14. I’m coming around to this (which is new for me). It’s time to get off the crazy train of revolving door position coaches - coordinators- head coaches. This thing is a mess... let Sark tear it down to the studs (as Klatt said) and build it back up. Any decision on coaching staff should be his and his alone.... not CDC or certainly not BMDs. Check status after 3 years, not one. If moving in a positive direction, he has a full 5.
