Those offenses work when there is only a few teams that run them so it is an oddity to game plan for them. When everyone is running it, it is harder. Oklahoma and Texas are putting a priority on defense. Everyone will follow them. The offense Oklahoma uses isn't bad, but defense can't be an after thought if you want to win. Too many times that team's defense puts the offense in a position where it can't fully function.

Michigan, even with Patterson not hitting wide open receivers, hung with Bama when their defensive line was playing good in the first half. When Alabama started exploiting their linebackers they didn't make adjustments and the worm turned. Even if Alabama isn't as strong as usual they still have outstanding coaching who now how to make game adjustments. That has been an issue for Michigan during the whole Harbaugh era. Don Brown is a very good coach, but he needs to not be so rigid in his plan and allow for adjustments.

I'm guessing the Mormons are glad to be in basketball season.

I remember when he wrote that and it makes sense. If I went to Hawaii for work, I would guess not much work would be done. I can almost guarantee it.

Well, it’s not the location that matters...... anywhere there are Mai Tai’s by the pitcher, lovely Polynesian Ladies Hula Dancing in bare midriff, and babes by the bundle in scanty bikinis roaming around everywhere...... it’s no wonder that “distraction” is an issue for a football team full of young men. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I’ve a thought that Harbaugh won’t be around much longer in Ann Arbor..... from what I’m seeing he’s not the man for the job and I don’t believe Michigan wants to be the 4th best program in the conference.

They don’t, but at this point I don’t know who they can get that is better. Michigan is not an especially good recruiting ground. Their best years were teams filled with Ohio boys. They have only won 1 national championship since 1948. The job comes with huge expectations and a very steep hill to climb. Harbaugh has had 3 10 win seasons. More than their last two coaches combined. I’m not sure any established coach would take the job. Maybe they could give Charles Woodson the job. He is especially uncomfortable with the current state of affairs of Michigan football. He still has plenty of relatives in Ohio.

I doubt Ga has the ability to send anyone into the stone age with that inept offense. They did have a lot of starters missing....which brings up another topic I want to vent on. Starting new thread....
They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.

See, well ya see, the thing is, he should have caught that ball. But the ball is bigger than his hands.

I’m watching Tennessee and Indiana play in the Taxslayer Gator Bowl...... it appears to me as if Tennessee and my Beloved Mountaineers have a lot in common, as they both can move the ball pretty efficiently into the Red Zone, BUT CANNOT GET THE darn BALL OVER THE FREAKIN GOAL LINE!!!!!

My prayers that I would never, ever, ever, ever have to watch this stuff again have fallen on deaf ears....... :cry: :cry: :cry:

Indiana’s offense is overmatched though.

Indiana can’t get a receiver open. After a whole half it is 6-3 Tennessee. A titanic struggle.

.......if that had been the Mountaineers instead of the Volunteers, it would have been 7 - 6 at the half. :oops:

Neil Brown, the new 1st year coach at WVU, said during one of his weekly pressers when a question about recruiting came up, that while he was calling high school coaches to introduce himself that his biggest surprise was that the high school coaches had told him WVU had pretty much stopped recruiting Ohio. He then said, ‘I was really surprised to here that, and it will be our priority to re-establish Ohio as part of the Mountaineer Recruiting Base.

That would be smart. Ohio, Georgia, and Florida is where WVU recruited when they had success.

If Indiana beats Tennessee will they get kicked out of the SEC?

Anyone see that Tennessee Fan standing-up, waving his arms, shaking his fist and yelling in anger and frustration after Tennessee’s last series????? You ain’t seen nuttin’ till you’ve seen 60+thousand Mountaineer Fans do that in unison........ Good Grief. :(
