I'm not disagreeing with the coaching comments. Every offensive play is designed to work when executed properly- if the numbers are there. It isn't necessarily the playcalling that's bad- but the preparation to execute them. It's Moorehead's system- which is RPO/vertical threats- and right now our guys can't run it. The decision to adjust is on the coaches 100%.
I agree, would rather watch our future qb get in and mess up than our veteran. He did put up 60 points in his first game,too.
nonetheless, defense did their job. Offense was putrid again
Defensive line is what kept us in the game. They blew up the mesh on nearly every play, which forced Florida to rely on bubbles, quicks and flares. Our secondary didn't make adjustments to the short game. And Nick Fitzgerald couldn't hit the broadside of a furniture factory.
JOE was hired to come in and not screw things up this year, literally. No one expected him to come in and win a NC, but instead to come in and win the games we were supposed to based off of talent. So far we have been beat by less talented teams- which is what's frustrating.
Fitz looks better than last year? Have we watched the same team the last two weeks? anything beyond 10 yards he isn't even getting it within catching range ( minus the td drop). He's making poor decisions reading the zone, as well. He's the reason kylin isnt getting touches. Every zone read he's part of, he calls his own number and much of the time ends up getting stuffed at LOS. I agree that the OL is bad, which isn't helping things. It's time to realize that we have a team of NFL talent that is going to win 7 games at most.
I haven't looked at my tickets yet, but if I had to guess it says wear white, like it has for the past 15 years.... which indicates JoeMo probably didnt have as much to do with this as you think, Adam.
it was 7-14 with 8 minutes left in the 4th. KY threw for 72 yards and rushed for right at 200--- thoroughly dominated?? They got out coached and were undisciplined is why they lost.
Florida fans will get the Don Mullens effect if Florida loses Saturday. BTW- it's never his fault.
I saw a more talented team get out-coached and played, nothing more or less. We are a team of momentum because of our discipline- or lack thereof. We should see our best product on the field this week- kids will be extrinsically motivated to prepare for this one- as will coaches since they are in the cross hairs right now. Rain in the forecast for Saturay, though.
Because Grantham is fixing to flip to Bama if he can
These salaries are getting out of hand. When does it stop? When Saban retires I suppose
Get Hugh's guys out of there and let Luke build his program with fresh minds and faces.
not thrilled with this hire. Just because he hasn't proven himself as overly competent as Grantham did. But this late in the game I suppose the pickin's are slim.
I think we are also forgetting that this is a coach's job. What if someone denied you the ability to change jobs and u were stuck stacking boxes your whole life. Being an athlete is a privilege.
Lets paint a picture of this scenario. You're 18 years old, you show up to practice one day and the coach makes you mad- because it will happen. Well now you decide to transfer to somewhere else. Along with you comes transcripts, scholarship changes, and a whole lot of other paperwork. Now let's multiply that by 12,000 ( appx. number of NCAA football players), can you see where chaos will ensue? Coaches have earned their degrees and credentials- they are adults- they can make decisions better suited for them. The players haven't earned anything but a scholarship. Life's tough- deal with it.
If only Mullen would have recruited Brown a little harder he wouldn't be faced with this dilemma. Too bad he ruined his opportunity to come back home last week.
That's because he's never been used as a passer- Same as Dak. Mullen doesn't want a pocket passer. Dak didn't throw the ball consistently until the Orange Bowl, and racked up 400+ yards.
Saban never promises things like this? What do you think he tells recruits? Hey man, we may get another NC this year. Doubt it. He carries his rings with him to show them.
THIS IS A YEAR OLD! Coincidental that it's coming out while Miss State is hiring a new coach? FOOLS from TSUN trying to pee on the parade. Old news, been investigated.
Have y'all also seen where Knox was pulled off recruiting trail because he's going to Florida?
Where has it been published that Grantham left? Am I behind?
but since the dragon has been poked,on paper, it's a no-brainer #JoMo. Two years will tell the true answer.
No, this is a typical Speck article. Same guy that says the rival is too tumultuous now adds fuel to it by writing this kind of stuff. SMH SDS, be better.
Nah, that was a Mullen request. Of course the cell phones were impromptu. Juice boys with recruits on the sideline were also Mullen. I hate to see all of that go away.
Is anyone else sad that don't stop believing is going to be gone? asking for a friend..
He has our interim coach recruiting for him already- Dirty business.
Looney also knows the landscape. A yankee from up north is going to need to bring in / keep some guys from the south for recruiting purposes. I wish they would give Knox the boot and let him coach the bowl game- though that isn't feasible.
I was skeptical at first but have done a lot of homework on this guy. The few Penn State games I watched- their offense was electric. He runs a variation of Triple option/zone read,RPO. Every run play has a pass option from what I understand-depending on the safety. Kids are excited- I'm excited. Several rumors surfacing that Grantham is staying. Also that Knox is out after bowl game- allegedly recruiting for Florida already. Hope this guy gives Looney a position- he's a true dawg.
" a ball coach" comes off to me as a no nonsense kind of guy. IDK if that's right for Starkville. While I believe in strict discipline, I also like seeing our kids dance around and have fun on the sideline. Hope whoever they hire doesn't try to come in and change the energetic culture that we have going.
