If you still think Patenaude should be employed

Talent doesn't answer the question of why he calls down counters and reverses on 4th and short.
He's had plenty of bone-headed calls--not disputing that. But I can also remember times when PJ ran tosses that were blown up on 4th and short when a dive or QB keeper would have seemed much more sensible. Every coach makes some questionable calls.

No more high school ball!
Never hire an OC that has 'Pat' as the first three letters of his first name or his last name, I guess. Surely there are some Ralphs or Pauls needing jobs.
Paul’s have only had mild success littered with mediocrity and/or failure and have saddled our Athletic Association with debt.

I’m gonna go ahead and stop you there. There’s no way Key is worse than Sewak. Our OL isn’t the most talented, is undersized, doesn’t have much depth and was recruited to run a different offensive scheme. On top of that, our best OL left the team and plays at Texas now.
So Key gets a pass, and Pat doesn't. Got it!

Yea, and we all were mostly pissed at Paul Johnson when he made those calls.

Right now, we're like #111 in 4th down conversions and 126th in 3rd down conversions and this is after playing two öööö-ass teams, one mediocre team and Clemson. Those numbers are horrific. We might be, altogether, the worst offense in the country right now.

Probably because he doesn’t feel that we have a consistent enough push upfront to move the line of scrimmage and is trying to get people in space to use their athleticism.

Remember when you are wondering why we aren’t lining up under center and running power that we have had a walk-on playing a significant number of snaps at center. The interior line is getting whipped.

And it's not like we've done very well converting in short yardage when we try to power our way through.

Lowest offensive output against a non-P5 school since 1977 when South Carolina blanked us as an independent.

Of 69 plays not counting a kneel-down to end the first half, 35 of them produced one yard or less.

A lot of PJ's tosses on 4th and short worked. They only way they could defend the rocket on 4th and short was to guess right.
