The biggest problem that prevented a fast start on offense.

Was trying to throw it on 3rd and 1 and 3rd and 2. Should have ran the ball there and we probably would have at least gotten into feild goal range and possibly a touchdown. Just my opinion but it’s like the offensive coordinators didn’t realize Duke isn’t that great at stopping the run. Against the coots next week I really hope we come out running the football. I highly doubt they can stop it based on there performance against Florida

Agreed. Those were baffling playcalls. I could maybe understand them against an Alabama who is strong up front but against Duke you’ve got to set the tone and give it to #9.

It's not t-net's fault that the OC's were not aware of how bad Duke is at stopping the run. We discussed it at length last week. The OC's need to start reading t-net more if they want to keep up. Maybe Dabo decided that he did not need our insight for Duke, so he gave us the week off.

you're #2 in the CFP. You need a couple yards. You should be able to man up and get it. Period. The fact you dont even attempt it is a bad sign

It sounded like it was an RPO and Trevor made the check. So maybe in that situation you take that option off the table.

RPO is starting to sound like a clever excuse. OCoords need to start incorporating more run plays. Only 9 to ETN ain't gonna cut it.

The problem in the first half was that the OL's heads were not in the game. We couldn't run the ball in the first half effectively. The OC's knew we would probably get stuffed on the 3rd and 2 plays the way we were playing. Now the second half was a different story. I think the coaches woke them up during half time

Guys, they weren’t play calls. They were r p o and TL chose to pass. If you listen to TLs post game he said he chose to pass and should have just run for it. It was not a called pass by the OCs.

That's where we miss that old qb whatshisname

whatshisname would have run it for sure on the rpo!

Based on what D was giving him, it was probably the correct

read. So if you are playing Bama, it’s the correct call. But it wasn’t Bama out there.

1st two series on third down we should have run the ball

We were on our own 40 yard line both times. Not that I would have done it, but we could have run for it on 3rd and 4th down if needed. This is where we have relied on QB runs in past. We need to get better running ball on third and 2-3

The calls were great. The throws were off.***

A few throws was off. But some was drops that’s not TL fault. I saw some perfectly thrown balls dropped


When you miss Renfrow three different times, you're off.

But, I agree that the receivers did TL no favors last night either.

It was just a strange game in a lot of ways, but the end result was eactly as most predicted.

Nope. The screen pass on 3rd and 1 the defender was all over it. The pass to the flats the next drive on 3rd and 2 was covered as well.

Terrible calls when you’ve got the best RB in the country in the backfield.

Yeah , great analysis . Plus that astute commentary on how our O-Co's didn't know anything about Duke's football frailties. I tell ya ... there should be a study done about the effects of being consistently incorrect and how the brain organically suffers from that basic lack of awareness which can lead to such a condition .
