Wtf are you talking about? We’ve played one game and Hill graded out better than anyone else in the SEC at center.


I haven't seen the pff grades. Can you link them?

I'm hoping that was by design and that Coley didn't open the playbook once the game was in hand

ETA: Make no mistake, this is a great, great offensive line. I think some of us are frustrated because we watched the two Alabama games, watched us take out foot off the gas and lose, and then saw us take our foot off the gas again on Saturday.

I want to see Kirby start running up the score. Keep the aggression on both sides of the ball for 60 minutes. I don't mean leave the starters in during a 40 point blowout, but I mean staying aggressive with the playcalling when the backups take the field. I do not care if the national media takes him over the coals for scoring two TDs in the 4th quarter of a 70-3 win over Murray State.

re: For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
The line played well. Much of the short yardage issue was on the RBs, and some of was on playcalling.

I know playcalling will vary more from ND onwards, and I suspect we'll see personnel changes if this doesn't improve.

Swift or White can pick up a tough yard better than Herrien because they run at holes, not defenders.

Fromm isn't a threat to pull the ball on zone read. He needs to keep a few times a game just to keep the D honest. He did pull the ball and keep a few times against UT a couple of years ago so he can do it fairly effectively.

If you watched Clemson play Tech last week even tall assed Trevor Lawrence pulled a few times scoring a TD and he picked up a 1st down as well.

Also Herrien should not be the number 1 back....Swift, Zeus, and then Herrien. Looks like Cook is going to be in Slot which I'm digging with Jet Sweeps and passing in the flats.

Maybe once or twice a game against good teams, or maybe near the goal line. Have zero interest in him getting hurt in a meaningless game.

He isn’t

Because people that actually know what they're watching can see Fromm is elite. It's only our fans that can't. It's baffling.

He's elite mentally. He's not elite physically.

He's an elite passer. Physically. He may not be an elite or even good runner but he doesn't have to be. The two best quarterbacks of the 2000s are both statues.

Fromm is a bigger threat to pull the ball out and make the right pass out of the ZR look than just about anyone in the game. Look at the first TD against Vandy. That’s gonna get more in your head than keeping it. He has shown he will keep it on film and will when it’s necessary. If I’m coaching, I’m going to make sure if he pulls it, it’s gonna be a pass. No reason for him to be running to keep them honest, when he can keep them more honest with his arm.

What’s really your issue with Fromm? He beat Fields out fair and square so why does it bother you so much?

Reading that Wilson got hurt in practice. Any word on severity? Who steps up?

Logic says Mays at RT and Cleveland at RG.

Salyer should be healthy to be the 6th man on the line in place of Mays.

re: For all the talk of the O line, call me concerned.
To be clear, I wasn’t complaining. “Concerned” was the word I used, although as quick as some of you are to denigrate others I highly doubt the ability to discern the difference exists. Back to my “concern”, we were 1 for 7 on 3rd down conversions and wound up kicking 3 FGs.............against Vandy. Excuse it away all you like, but Bama remains the team we must beat until they’re not.

That doesn't concern me as much as consistency at center.

We only had 7 third down attempts all game (something good was happening such as almost 500 yards of total offense).

Fromm's strength is converting 3rd downs. He only had one third and short attempt. That was the throw for Pickens that Robertson batted down.
