I am not saying that a player can't make a mistake. It is just when it happens over and over again. They need to find a way to correct the problem or put somebody in that will produce. This is a multi million dollar business. Maybe I am being to critical. Just the game last night wasn't very impressive and it mirrored a lot of things from last year.
I don't buy the "new system" argument. If this is a new system, why do I see the same plays as last season? Have we not even tried this "new system" yet? If so, why not? I thought we were going to run a spread offense? I thought that is what McFarland brought to the table. I still see the QB draw on 1st down as the most popular play. There aren't enough short passing plays. We aren't throwing to the RB or HB enough as a design play. When we do, it is part of a dump off check down of receivers. And the TE should have more catches than he does.
If we were doing some of these things, then I would believe there is a new system. I don't see it. So if we aren't using a new system yet, what is difficult about learning the same plays we have always used?
I asked the question before, since I haven't been able to watch either game. Did they throw it in the direction of Blythe often into interceptions and/or broken plays? Did Blythe drop the ball at any point?
I just watched the UK show. Kent State played them equally in the first half and then Kentucky made adjustments and blew them out. That's coaching.
Anytime Meyer is flushed he is no threat to pass on the run. He becomes very predictable for the opposing defense. Once he takes off that is it. This is what hasn't changed from last year.
7 turnovers in 2 games. That should say enough!!!!
So lets assume we are running more screen passes. That is certainly a change because we just couldn't do it before.
What else is new in this "system". I want to understand what it is that is so difficult to learn?
