For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
Repeat stops on short yardage sent visions of last years Florida game flashing through my head. Maybe some of it was a function of play calling. Either way, there's no excuse if all hype was even half true.

40 carries for 323 yards. 8.1 avenge

How pathetic.

vandy is good at cutting, stunting, etc..... when we went play action, we scored a TD easily. Vandy was selling out and we still wore them out. This is the best offensive line we have ever had ever.

One of those 3rd/4th and 1s is squarely on Herrien. Looked like he was supposed to go right behind Trey/Cade and when Hill got torpedoed by his guy, Brian still tried to run there. Guess he thought he could run through him....

re: For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
Bottom line is we need to find a better plan than heavy personnel, bunch set, tailback 3 yards behind the line, dive play for short yardage.

Anyone can stop that. Anyone.

As a previous poster mentioned, play action, runs off tackle, any number of offensive options would greatly help us there.

The insistence on imposing our will/bully ball/grunt ‘n’ punt is a liability in short yardage and red zone.

Derek mason is one of better defensive gurus in the Sec.

Hill struggled last season.
He is the only one on the line that I worry about. He is the only one that hasn't shown the level of consistency as the others.

Honestly, he hasn't earned the same level if trust as Thomas, Kindley, Cleveland, Mayes or Wilson. It will be interesting to see if anything shakes up as we play Notre Dame or Florida.

Being a little more creative than we are might solve that. We are as predictable as the sunrise in those situations.

I think it is more short yardage play calling then anything.

When it is 3 and 1, and they have 8 in the box, I always get the feeling I don't want us running between the tackles. Seems like it rarely works.

11 personnel has 8 defenders with 7 gaps.

I'm a fan of the 21 personnel with a fullback. You get to create another gap anywhere along the line that you want. It allows for a little more misdirection.

I understand dropping the fullback for a more mobile option at QB (you get the misdirection, you stretch the field with personnel, and you can still choose to follow the lead if you like). I think this is where Kirby wants to take our offense. This is what he is recruiting high schools. But with Fromm, I still think we need that fullback.

re: For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
I really think we’d be fine if we simply tried using a fullback. We don’t have to dedicate a scholarship to one. Just teach the tight ends and running backs what to do. Just that lead blocker body may help.

So whose fault is that? That’s more play calling than the OL.

re: For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
And somehow we managed to score on 80% of our drives on the road against an SEC opponent, opening weekend and covering the spread, 325 yards with 8+ Ypc......


OHHHH, and that whole thing about having one of our OL being named SEC Player of the Week. What a shitshow

Some of these takes are just amazing.

re: For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
There is a huge difference between running on 1st or 2nd down versus running on 3rd or 4th down.

Do you disagree?

The rushing total and ypc doesn't care. But the outcome of the game sure does.

We still have things to figure out. We arent a finished product on the OL. We arent a finished product for our team identity.

When did Hill struggle? The only issues I remember him having at center were the high snaps.

I just think it’s so crazy. We came out and smacked them in the mouth running at will, then didn’t score another tD after the early second quarter. I don’t want to see this team letting it’s collective foot off the gas. That’s how we lost to bama twice.
