better question, does a single one suck as bad on defense?

Please explain bad roster management?.....

Well, 5 starters palyed all 92 snaps Saturday for 1.


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:03 PM
 

Our best 2 interior dline players (Williams, Reader) played 45 snaps combined. Steph Anthony and Tony Steward did not play a single snap on defense and we constantly use a freshman safety as a Strongside Linebacker. It's pretty obvious why we wore down. It wasn't conditioning it was bad roster management.

What I'm getting at is who did we have to replace them?


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:09 PM
 

Our defensive numbers were thin.


Deshawn Williams, DJ Reader, and Carlos Watkins***

can they cover a receiver?

because that's something we could benefit from.

Not much can be done about losing your 3 top CB's to injury,

but a better pass rush would help make the QB miss some of those open guys.


were they hurt for the Auburn game?


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:21 PM
 

Because that was the most consistently wide open Clemson opponent I have ever witnessed. If Auburn had a half decent QB, we would have gotten killed in that game.

Coverage actually got better through the year, but that ain't saying much.

We blew a lot of coverages against Auburn for sure. Our

safeties were seniors and healthy all year and still blew coverages in every single game. That part I have no answer for.

Reader took 22 snaps. His average.
Williams took 29 snaps. His average.
Watkins took 0 snaps. Only 10 snaps in NC State game.


Exactly my point. These guys need to play more.***

You'll see a better rotation next year.....


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:30 PM
 

with some of the freshmen Dline playing minutes.

Maybe the minutes were because of injury or advantage.


I hope you're right. We have a lot of talent not utilized.***


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:40 PM
 




Instead of playing Watson and Jarrett 60+ snaps each


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:14 PM
 

they could have used Reader more than 20 and Williams more than 20 and Watkins more than 0. They could have used our 5 star linebackers, on of which is second on the team in tackles, more than 0 snaps. I'm just saying. Maybe we dont look so tired if we split up the PT a little bit better.


That is a contributing factor, in my opinion.***

just off the top of my head. Those offenses look a little different based on the players on those teams and how they use them but that is the idea behind all of those teams' offenses.


Chad Morris's offense is outstanding...


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:13 PM
 

against unranked teams.

His QB is outstanding against unranked teams too. Tajh


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:16 PM
 

missed a lot of wide open guys when he did have time to throw. And don't even get me started about that INT he threw up for grabs.


maybe Morris ahould call some more QB keepers...


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:19 PM
 

I understand many were unscripted because of the pressure Saturday, but we were extremely predictable in the second half against FSU.

We did put 37 on the #2 defense in the country though***

Serious question and not meant as a flame at all, but here goes. Do you really think FSU has the second best defense in the country? The two tough teams they played (Florida and Clemson) they allowed 37 points each game. I think FSU's defensive ranking is very misleading because of games against Murray State, Savannah State, South Florida, and an easy ACC slate.

You need to apply for the OC when Morris leaves.

Is your offense any better, prove it.

Indicated a preference not to rotate linemen. IMHO that's a bad idea. Creates fatigue and doesn't develop depth

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

We do Chicken right...it's not just for frying anymore!


I agree with you %100. Must rotate lineman. Especially on D.***


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:30 PM
 




Every D in the Top 10 is light years better than ours


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:32 PM
 

except MAYBE Texas A&M (and theirs is better, maybe not light years, but it is better).

Our Defense, not our Offense, cost us the USuC game (although I admit that I was not crazy about the Offensive gameplan). Can't get off the field on 3rd and a Mile, well, you deserve to lose...

The Offense won us a lot of games this year... have some of you already forgotten 2010 already?????


And lets not forget Oregon and the 22 per game they give up***

True, but their D looked pretty good this year except


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:41 PM
 

for that debacle against USC. Their D is plenty better than ours and plays against better O's throughout the season.


It's definitely better but not light years. Who plays O out

west other than Oregon and USC?


I'm not saying I don't love our offense, I'm saying it puts


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:39 PM
 

the D at a disadvantage. Even if our Scheme and Depth were as good as Alabama we would not have the defensive numbers they have because while we are running 90 offensice plays our opponent is running 70 or so. Bama's opponents are getting 40 because Bama plays a slow methodical offense that shortens the game.


Completely agree and I have believed for some time


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:54 PM
 

that the faster pace offenses will actually result in two things:

1. The better team winning more often, largely because running more plays is going to give the better team more opportunities against the weaker team.

2. More blowouts, largely for the same reason.

I think this goes back to the "shot clock" in basketball. 40 years ago, a team with less talent could stall the game, play keep away, keep the game close and hope to win something ugly like 26-24. As the shot clock came along, creating more possessions, the more skilled team becomes more and more likely to win.

The fast-paced offense is pretty much the same thing in football. A game with 180 plays run will more likely result in the skilled team winning than a game with 125 plays run. That's just common sense.

Also, only one game, ONE GAME, this entire CU season was decided by less than 10 points (the first one, which was 7 points). I don't think this is at all a coincidence. More plays equals more opportunity to separate yourself from competition, and avoid an upset, IF you have more talent.

I would argue that the only teams on our schedule with similar talent are: Auburn, FSU, USuC. So, our offense did what it was designed to do, blow out weaker teams.

And, in our two losses, our defense, not our offense, was the culprit (and our D is where we are talent deficient, especially in the secondary).


Bull crap, Im sick of that excuse


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:57 PM
 

Its not like the defense gets tired and starts giving up big plays and points late - its starts right off the bat!


Its not an excuse. Our defense is on the bad side of


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 2:03 PM
 

mediocre and needs to improve. I was simply saying it won't rank among the top defenses even when it becomes one because it will have to defend more plays and therefore give up more yards and possibly points. I'm pretty sure we led at the half in both our losses this year though and perhaps the lack of rotation on the d line and subsequent lack of pass rush later in games caused a bad secondary to get exposed.


QB of spread teams that have won the NC - Tebow, Newton


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 2:09 PM
 

In other words, they had a freak of nature at QB. Both could get tough running yards, just in different ways. I think if I were building an offense/team to win the NC, I'd likely build it to be a little more conventional, but that's not to say that a spread team, minus a freak, won't ever do it.
