Yeah.... Herman and Bleil need to take the blame for Saturday night IMO. Herman has done NOTHING since he's been here.... NOTHING.
We have this super fancy "jet tempo" offense that gets us 3 and outs faster than anyone else in the nation... yippeee!
I still don't understand the lack of creative playcalling either? Still no misdirection whatsover. UNI was just pinning their ears back and going after us. Never once did we even try to keep them honest with a mis-direction counter, or reverse, etc. We just continued to try to run right into their pursuit.
And it just takes us FOREVER to get the ball into the hands of the RBs. Jantz gets the snap, and then he has to make these reads on the DE's, etc, and then has to decide whether to give it to the RB or keep it. It just takes forever. And when our RB does get the hand off, he's usually standing still basically and has no momentum even going forward. It's just frustrating to watch.
Herman needs to show something in these last 11 games or he needs to go IMO. Quit jacking around and play football. And if you're trying to "spread" the defense out and make them cover the entire field, as Herman always says, then why aren't you doing that? Why are we always running right into their pursuit and never keeping them honest? Why are all of our WR's always covered and never open like UNI's were? I mean c'mon. We played against an FCS team, and our starting RB had 27 yds! NO EXCUSE for that.
Will this offense work better in the B1G, Big 12, MWC, or the BE?
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
I think they played conservative. You dont show all your secrets against UNI. You save your best stuff for bigger games.
I just HATE that excuse. EVERY game is a big game. If we lost to UNI Saturday, it would have been nearly impossible for us to even dream of getting to 6 wins. It's still a longshot IMO, but if you can't beat the easiest team on your schedule, you're in big trouble.
I'm sure we would all have felt great losing to UNI Saturday knowing that we used 10% of our playbook, right? Seriously. Herman needs to go if that's his line of thinking.
