I got you fam.
Not sure where USAT pulls their odds from, but Vegas Insider shows many of the sportsbooks' line movements. Most have moved up from GT-4 or GT-5.5 to now GT-6 or even GT-6.5. There was one that went a half point down from GT-6. Without looking any closer, it appears money being placed on GT (at least per Vegas Insider).
I'm hearing the strategy is to use all 3 QB's. That's not a good strategy. Play Oliver. Give it time.
I’d like to see all three. I’m m not entirely sure how they have been playing in practice. I haven’t seen anything that warrants not putting the other guys in. Plus we are still in the phase of figuring out who fits best where.
Well, it changed, just not for the better. 96 and sunny now. Ouch.
Yep. I expect to see all for 1 or 2 more games until we get into Coastal play
At the end of day, coaches are judged on W’s and L’s. Their jobs, salaries and bonuses are never predicated on how they get the Wins. Good coaches will always do what they think gives them the best chance to win. In GT’s case, if it means 20+ QB keepers then so be it.
Don’t agree. If we were gonna try to win games this year than a CPJ disciple should have been hired and we’d be up there with the Coastal favorites.
If we’re gonna try to change schemes/brands then prove to the recruits that we’re gonna run the offense we’re promising them. I’d rather go 5-7 and impress the ‘20/‘21 classes than 7-5 and have Top 100 players that we had a foot in the door with publicly laugh at our offense.
A couple wins/losses in his first season aren’t gonna define CGCs tenure. But running an unpopular offense in his first season might cripple him. B/c he sure as hell isnt gonna recruit well enough to run what we saw against Clemson and win more than CPJ did.
Clemson is #1 for a reason. Their defense will make a lot of folks look pedestrian. I'm interested to see how they handle A&M.
Maybe we are running a shell game with the QB's. The QB expected to play the most each week will actually play the least. Since all three are different, the opposing defenses will be at a disadvantage.
weep not 404TheCulture, for there is Juice. Collins shall lead the Juice to the promised victory land land and yea verily, honey shall flow like syrup from a waffle house pancake buffet. Dodd reigns above his chosen ones, the Juiced ITP. Give us this day that which we have earned, for this is not an entitlement culture. For Tight Ends have the blocking, the receiving, and the ball security.
Not ready yet, but it looks like they are already prepping the field for the whiteout!
Serious question... I wonder if they've ever considered painting the field white for the whiteout.
That’s not the point at all. We should have been passing more on the national stage. Whether it was working or not. Especially when we went down 3 scores.
What the hell good is dropping back and passing three times if you're going to get sacked three times in a row due to porous pass protection? Your argument doesn't make any sense. Everybody adjusts what they do on offense based on the strength of their opponent, albeit to varying degrees. If you don't adjust, and you just try to pound a square peg into a round hole, you get our game against Wake Forest in the ACC championship game in 2006. Remember how fun that was? How many awesome recruits did our modern, pro style offense get us after that game?
The problem is that Oliver is himself somewhat of a square peg cause of his passing ability and will be hitting a round hole more often than not since most teams won't be Clemson (stopping you either way) or USF (prolly give up rushing yards to a wheelchair). We'll play a mix of QB's this weekend cause Oliver is likely to win that game but we want the other QBs to get experience, question will be how much.
The line has inched up to 6 1/2 some places, so I guess we're okay.
All I'm saying is that we don't have enough of a sample size to even make that statement. He may yet be able to be serviceable as a passer. He has played in one game in the shotgun since high school, and that was against Clemson. Also, if Oliver had stayed in last year against USF, I bet we would have won that game going away.
You’re still not seeing it man. 2006 had an established coach in a title game. About as bad a comparison as you can get. Of course you should try anything and everything to win that game.
This is an un-established coach in his first game of a rebrand promising change and then not delivering on the national stage. The margin of defeat of the Clemson game was a lot less important than the style of play for us in that one. Once it was clear the outcome was no longer in doubt, keeping Oliver out there to run option plays every down was not what was promised. And it’s gonna turn recruits away from us if it continues. It already has.
