    5-7 against Clemson, including a win in the ACCCG. 6 of 7 losses against top-10 Clemson teams.

    Quite familiar.

    We had a pass play actually put in the game plan for myself one time. Unfortunately, I broke my leg early in that game.

    That doesn’t mean those guys are capable at playing at a championship level. I played TE in high school to boot.

    You have to ask?
    I always loved that screen hook and ladder play. Need more of it.

    Agree with this. It's no secret that I loved the option scheme, but there was no excuse for us not to have been better at passing the football. Regardless of scheme, I hope our new staff is better at two things: recruiting and teaching fundamentals on both sides of the ball.

    If he were to call it, it'll be to honor Paul more than to troll Dabo.
    Better yet, CGC should call it as the 1st play in his 1st home game (USF?)
    Sort of a passing of the torch or whatever.

    But it'll never happen so move on.

    There's only one thing I hope they're better at: winning. They can do it however they want AFAIAC.

    Do ,any of our present RBs have enough "wiggle" to be really effective?

    Nah they all suck. But some can wiggle it just a little bit.

    May end up with more. Miami transfer Marquez Ezzard from Stockbridge is supposed to be visiting tomorrow and word is he wants to come here. I think him and Yates have a good relationship and Yates may be the one trying to draw him in. He's a 4* freshman but only played in 2 games so I think he can use 2018 as a redshirt, and may even get a waiver to play immediately due to coaching change at Miami.

    Anybody know what offense we are going to run under coach Collins? I would be really excited if it's a variant of the modern RPO type of option offense. I would be bummed if it's the I-formation pro offense that chugs along at 3 yards and cloud of Gailey dust.

    No one knows for sure yet. One thing I like about Patenaude, the OC, is that he doesn't really have "his" offense in the same fashion that CPJ had "his" offense. Patenaude's gameplan adjusted to the players on the roster and was pretty different between schools.

    Initially people were bummed, perhaps understandably, because he didn't set the world on fire at Temple. But his roster wasn't great there, and certainly the QB wasn't. His offenses at Coastal Carolina set school records. I think we have a good pool of QBs on the team to make something work. Doubt we see much I-formation stuff.

    I bet we run the same read option most everyone else does now. QB in shotgun, 1 back offset, 3 WR. Small running backs, anybody remember Robert Lavette, Brent Cunningham, etc. We've had a bunch of little but good running backs.

    Yeah, but we'll run it better.
