Remember that throwing incomplete passes might make he a bad QB, but doesn't mean he is bad a time management. Think about UNLV, Colorado, Kansas, Kansas St, Kansas, Kansas St. These are the only games where we lost by 7 or less and in every one AA was able to put together a drive in the final seconds. In all but three, we were in striking distance or had a guy wide open for a game winner but AA was unable to get it done. Time management is not the issue, it's his throwing ability.
Just back from the game, and I hate to say it but our defense has maybe three players currently playing that would be on the field at all for any other Big12 school. We know who they are essentially. Overall, we looked like a lower half MAC/upper half FCS team on defense.
We are undersized and lack speed in a major way. The poster that said we have too many Iowa-born walk-ons out there together will get roasted but he is right. Only time and recruiting will help this. Trying to stay positive but this combined with our QB play have me somewhat pessimistic.
it kind of funny how we have 2 DEs that are only 6' tall and 200 pound LBs and 2 safeties (ZS, MOC) that run 4.9 40s.
Oh yeah--I forgot--one player who has committed, but may or may not qualify. Oh, the horror!
As far as the defensive line--that and the linebacker position have been thin for ages--decades. Did you really think that CPR was going to wave a magic wand and make things better overnight? Seriously, folks...:eek:
Some day you guys have to realize that Arob was a Great back, LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR HE HAS DONE NOTHING. If he cant find his openings put some one else in.
AA sucks Im sorry to break this to you. but if he cant get the job done put in a younger QB and get them some experience. And stop making excuses. Its not the WR. Its not all the O-line and its not the Offensive system. He just is not a QB. If anything he should be a receiver and add depth to that position.
why do we seem to focus on 3-star DB recruits and alot of o-lineman every year. we are set at RB for 4 years with shontrelle and duran. we have to get a good QB! tad ecby is a great recruit. we are fine on offense except for QB. we have decent QBs, but none of them can play at the big 12 level. klein and knott are gonna be great with more experience, they are both playing well already. we need 3-4 good LB recruits though. need d-linemen the most. i dont see many offers made to d-linemen who we actually have a shot at getting.
Jack W just had a point that ARob is getting keyed on as well. I also think that they need to run him in some quick hitting plays, like they did when Woody was in the game. It seems the plays to ARob are so drawn out and take a long time to get going.
