That first possession

Nov 30, 2013, 10:51 PM

Smartest folks in the room syndrome? Why run that trick play?

We were moving the ball well...running clock, looking good.

Why get cute? Showed a lack of confidence.

20/20 hindsight? Maybe...but....

I swear it has been a LONG TIME since we lined up against a quality opponent and ran it down their throat...told 'em what was coming and went out and did it...

It's been a decade or more of this "high- flying offense" stuff...but when we run into a team that wins the trenches...the wheels come off.

I hated the trick play call. Especially since it is one we often run. But at the very least Sammy has to throw it away or on the sideline.

Our coaches are more the "trick" plays and delusions type. Time to clean house and get back to basic hard hitting football like you implied. I agree.

No way did USuC "win the trenches". We ran it well and

stopped their normal run game. We just couldn't handle the QB draw, but it wasn't because we lost the LOS.

Adding a trick while your base offense is going well makes no sense. Even if we go it I would still question the strategy. Keep running what's working...keeps their defense on the field and builds our confidence.
