Etienne was just a tweak was what I heard, he should be ready. Bryant is more of concussion protocol. The ankle should be ready soon anyway.

I hope his ankle really is. Pretending it was cost us. It wasn't last weekend, and it cost us. Thinking that the wrong backup was the best "next guy up" cost us. Lets really just put the next best player in the games as opposed to guys who are not as gifted being promoted. I want the ones who can get it done on the field in the games.

The backup QB. We couldn’t get them off the field all night, they had at least 3 ten play plus scoring drives. How can you say the wrong backup was in the game? You have no clue how Johnson would play and Cooper didn’t play that bad. We tied the game with 6 mins to play and our kickoff team had them backed up, but they drove it right down our throats to retake the lead.


You can try and place the blame on the QB if you like, but it’s not that simple.

I do have a clue, and it was evident on Friday that #1, Bryant wasn't healthy and couldn't perform as he had, and #2, our backup wasn't up to the task. Also evident was that our Defense wasn't ready for what Syracuse did. It took us too long to call the defense about every play. If we had been ready and everybody healthy with the right guys in, I do not think for a moment we would have lost. After all, the "experts" had us picked to stomp a much inferior team. They know more than either of us, and they rarely miss one by this margin. My opinion is just that - my opinion, and you are entitled to yours as well. Maybe the guys were tired, or looking ahead, or something else, but the bottom line is we lost to a very beatable team. I hope we fix what is broken and win the rest.

Our D had played over 30 more snaps than our offense played. Does anybody think that Cuse could have taken the legs from under our D players the same as we use to do when we run the fast high tempo offense?

Also, why did we get away from the fast high tempo offense?

Great points, and good questions. I imagine the reason we left the fast paced offense was that our QB was not 100% healthy. That seemed pretty evident, and the longer the game went, the more pronounced and obvious it became. Maybe a lesson was learned.

we lost by 4 points, one additional sustained TD drive, changes and wins the game. So its a valid point. But agree it was more than the qb

Our FG Kicker missed two very makeable FG' S.

Enough Blame to go around but Our Playoff Run starts next game.

they were running very well and we stopped giving them the ball. I've never played or coached football. played baseball in college and professionally. I was never pitching and throwing fastballs by someone and then said hmm I'll throw an off speed pitch. point is, our vertical run and pass game was working very well. we say ok let's abandon that and start screens and sweeps. seemed to throw us completely out of rythym. feaster and etn were tearing it up, believe they got 12 carries.

blitz. I think that's what Dabo means when he says "but the freshman has to continue to develop". We really miss a total package like Gallman this year. Older guys can block but lack burst, younger guys have burst but are still learning. It's only going to get better though!

in the few chances he's had.

If he's out there, the Defense knows in all likelihood it's not a pass, and that's a problem. When him and Feaster are picking up all blitzes, and KB has time to throw and doesn't end up on the ground, they'll be even more effective.

Unfortunately for them, GT has a good defense. It's not NS state good, but it's not Louisville either.

Well, he has definitely improved. With respect to knowing it's not a pass play when he's in, it hasn't stopped him from breaking off more than a few long runs.


Feaster has been blocking good. Tired of this excuse that keeps our 2 best backs on the bench..***

Yep. And one for Feaster. As I said in an earlier post, all 3 of these occurred when ETN/Feaster was primary receiver on an attempted middle screen (at least, it looked like one). They simply ran by the blitzer instead of cutting off their route and blocking him. That's a good recipe for putting a QB in the hospital.

Yes, I saw the whiff too ....believe the guy jumped right over him and Travis did not touch him or slow him down. It was really just execution. He was in the right spot and knew the guy was coming. He will get better at that!


Deja vu. I heard this last week that KB was running great

in practice within the next day or two from injury. Meanwhile come game time we saw pretty quickly KB couldn’t move around very well and that ankle was still gimpy and we kept playing him knowing he couldn’t move. But he “gave us the best chance to win” but it was obvious after a short time we weren’t headed in that direction using a hurt KB.


ETN ran right into the OL on a 3rd and 1

I personally don't think we should spend so much time shuffling RBs. Feaster had the hot hand early in Friday's game and we got away from him for no apparent reason

Feaster and Ettiene should be the ones getting a majority of the carries. Choice and Fuller are dependable, but until we aren't so heavily dependent on Bryant in the running game we need to stick to a two back rotation

The issue is we aren't carrying the ball with the running backs enough.

We wore down opponents last year with the go-go-go! Bama was worn down in the 4th Qtr, and it showed! Go back to what worked! Get on the line and hike the ball!!!
