I know it's a stretch to have any complaints about the Wake Forest game, but was anyone else annoyed with the qty of screen passes ( that were unproductive) in the first quarter into the 2nd quarter. They didn't give Trevor many opportunities to throw the ball downfield in the first half. In the limited time any of the QB's played in the 2nd half, their was no reason to throw, when we rushed for a TD on what seemed like every other play.

I am just a really big, lifetime fan of C.U. But I will admit I never understood the defensive schemes.

So I say this as just as a thought. They could have been playing the safety’s deep, because of T.L. Reputations for the deep pass and of course our receivers.
So maybe they were trying to lure them in, and put extra burden on the L.B. And make them play sidle to sideline. This could be way our run game has been so explosive. People have to respect the deep end of the field now!

Great point,but it seems like our OC's call the plays just based on the defensive scheme, instead of doing what we can do. I feel like we get to cute with teams where it isn't warrantied. Even with Wake Forest dropping the Safety's, with the skill of our WR's and Trevor's accuracy/velocity, we could have made more plays down the field. Especially given the that Weak Florist has one of the worst secondaries in the ACC. We won 66-3 and it's silly to question the game plan, I was just hoping to see an opportunity for Trevor to have a huge game.


Screen Passes Explained....

Screen Passes, are designed to spread a defense out and open up running lanes between the tackles. Which by any measure is the exact reason why our running backs were able to rip off huge runs for a score. Those screen passes create a pick your own poison scenario where defenses must play man coverage on assignment football. With our guys athleticism, there will be many matchups that pan out in our favor.

From a scheme point of view on offense it also allows our offensive line to do their jobs without playing a guessing game on whether or not the QB will run or pass. Now if it's a passing play they know without doubt that 90% of the time TL will throw the ball. Those screen passes also open up plays down the middle and underneath for a guy like Renfrow, Thompson, Rogers, other non-boundary receivers, and a TE who may be open underneath. This almost guarantees us a first down every time. Then when defenses adjust to the middle of the field to stack the box to stop our runs it allows for us to either hit a receiver on a deep post corner route, or a screen pass that will produce a score or a first down with extreme chunk yardage.

Where I had an issue with the screen passes was when KB was at QB. A screen pass is only effective when you have a quick dump off on a quick release. KB would simply not achieve good results because he held on to the ball for too long. A screen play is not a play that you can simply execute on a read option. That has to be a play strictly by design. TL has a quick release and gets the ball out there quickly while using his accuracy along with quickness. That isn't something that can be coached. That is something that must come with individual practice and it requires great amounts of chemistry between the QB and the WR who is the intended target. Many other teams across the nation try to duplicate it but 9 out of 10 times the ball is either over thrown or the WR drops the pass.

I hope this helps. TRUST THE PROCESS! DREAM WITH ME BABY! 15-0! GO TIGERS!

its annoying but I guess we have to deal with it. Our play calling revolves around the screen pass. Its unfortunately in the DNA of the offense
