They're buds, Crash Craddock isn't going anywhere.

re: Chaggy has to take over play calling right, RIGHT?
I'm a little concerned at this point as well. I'm not saying anyone needs fired yet, but I think we have seen a few red flags already.

The quarterback situation is fricking stupid. And I'm gonna take up Jack Ruby's argument for the time being and call into question Morris' analytics ratings. I think the dude is too dependent on dialing up "explosive plays." Being able to reel off a 45 yard gainer against Alabama is great, but you also gotta be able to move the sticks when you aren't gashing the other team for chunk yardage. I don't know, and I don't have examples or numbers to back my thinking here, but it seems to me that his offensive efficiency numbers are a concern. I think it will ultimately lead to inconsistent offensive performances.

We better hope that Chief can build a great defense here, because I feel like Morris is going to have plenty of games where his Hammer Down offense falls on his own fricking thumb.

I still support him, but already climbing the fence a little I guess.

My favorite was the not so much lateral to Mike Woods, only to have Mike Woods run backwards for 30 damn yards.



Doesn't change the call, but that play was screwed from the start. Starkel was supposed to throw right and he threw left. If what I heard was correct. That means Woods wasn't supposed to get, and wasn't expecting that ball at that moment at least.

And his first instinct was to run 30 yards backwards? This team is a clown car.

I imagine he panicked and went with the dreaded "Oh $%^&, maybe if I run around a lot something good will happen" plan. It was a clown show but I don't blame him if he was dropped into the middle of a busted play and didn't have a clue of what do do.

It is why you rehearse these plays over and over again before you try them on the field.

A few yards would have been more successful than our other WR screens

When the announcers notice (and repeatedly mention) that the RB is lined up too deep for the Wildcat to work you have a serious coaching problem.

My even bigger issue was when we let Boyd line up as a WR then moved him back with the QB. 100% of the time you knew Boyd was getting it. Maybe he was setting up to do something different after a bunch of attempts but was too obvious for as many times as we did it.

Some folks on Twitter went back to look at film and McFadden was apparently at exactly the same depth as Boyd.

The Wildcat with Boyd is so damn stupid.

What made the Wildcat work with McFadden was that he was a mild threat to throw the ball.

With Boyd in the shotgun you know it is a run 100% of the time.

The Wildcat in and of itself is stupid now IMO. It had it's two or three year run and then defenses adjusted. Let's try another gimmick.

If our OL was even half as good as it was back then and if Boyd had McFadden's unreal acceleration then it might work

I think folks forget how deep Nutt had McFadden presnap in both the Wildcat and traditional formations. It’s a huge difference when watching a game in 2019.

I would argue that was less of a part of it than

A) McFadden's elite speed
B) The threat of a 2nd NFL caliber back coming around the end
C) Really good run blocking

The rare occasions that McFadden actually passed were usually to a wide open target

fify. Let’s all remember Darren McFadden is arguably one of the top 5 to 10 greatest running backs to ever play college football. Comparing anyone to him just really isn’t fair

Did it ever dawn on anyone that maybe he's running the wildcat to cut the QB out of the play? Considering it takes Clary 3.7 seconds to get the ball back to the QB, we're just getting our RB to the LOS in standard time.

I wasn't happy to see the wildcat either.It just told me Hicks wasn't getting it done.

My head dropped.
