Practice Notes
I understand we are living in a completely different environment but is there any information on practices? Who's stepping up? How does Newman look? Is the D fast and assertive?

Where are my tidbits??

It was pretty difficult to get info pre COVID.I can only imagine how much more difficult it'll be now.

Agreed. From what i understand reporters are not allowed to be at the practices because of the spread of Covid. Apparently (This could be wrong but this is what I gather from what I have heard) they are being provided film of the a short segment of the practices.


All that said.....I m beginning to think we are not going to see a large departure from our offense, but a change in some plays and obviously play calling. So we might see some differences in in some added formations, but the offense we see on the field will look similar to what we have seen in the past. We will see more passing, but don't expect some Air raid or wide open passing offense.

Again, this is my own opinion based upon things I have heard.

I hope to see more RPO and play-action involving the athleticism of our new QB (whichever one becomes the starter). Hope also to see some longer passes thrown to our good WR corps.

Yeah, me too. I mean when you run like we do it only enhances the play action aspect of an offense. When you begin hitting shorter routes, the secondary tends to creep up to the LOS, and that in turn makes longer passes more effective. It all works together. the hard part of being an OC is knowing how to set up plays for later in the game. Running a dive play up the middle over and over again then opens up play action. But that requires success with the running play.

Short slant passes forces the secondary to inch toward the line of scrimmage and opens up longer routes. Obviously there is a lot more to it than that, but that is it in a nutshell.

If you can't run the ball effectively, or rarely run the ball then the defense is not going to bite on a fake hand off.


I know this is very elementary and you all already knew that....sometimes it is just to remind myself.

Short answer, I suspect we will throw the ball more and we will see some RPO plays added to the playbood, but nothing hugely major. Now it's time for my to be proven wrong and have egg on my face.

re: Practice Notes
I think the biggest difference will be downfield passing and maybe our OL losing some weight. The downfield passing game was almost non-existent last year and I thought some of the linemen (Kindley and Hill) were too heavy to effectively pull on running plays. I think Monken will be better at getting guys like Cook and DRob the ball in space where they are most effective.

Good, maybe they'll actually get to the second level again like 2017

George Pickens, Drob, Blaylock run trips with Cook on an underneath crossing route with Zamir White and/or Kenny Macintosh in the backfield, with Lajai the Warrior under center, run this formation every time and it's qb option what to do.

If do right, no can defense.

I'm looking forward to us finally running some power.

The only time we did it last season was in the bowl game.

re: Practice Notes
I’d love that too. I’d like to see us run our old pin/pull toss like USC is currently running.

Pittman was great....I really liked his enthusiasm and his recruiting ability, but I think in the long run Luke MIGHT be a more effective OLine coach. I think his style will lend itself to the type of offense we are wanting to run going forward.

Overall, we were elite at pass protection despite getting down to third string LT, third string LG, third string C, third string RG, and second string at RT.

We just didnt get those same results in the run game or short yardage. Despite the pass protection, we never could become a vertical threat that would allow more explosive runs with Pittmans run blocking scheme.

It's great to get great pass protection when you are a passing team, but we didn't really throw the ball that much the last 2-3 years. I agree with you. Seemed we got not push at the line and that made it tough in short yardage situations.

re: Practice Notes
You don't bring in an NFL offensive coordinator to run the same thing that we ran last year. Any decent coordinator, and this guy was a good coordinator at the NFL level, is going to insist on running his own offense.

Just passing on some things I am hearing. Not saying they are a done deal or correct, but with the limited time they have and no spring practice I wouldn't expect a huge departure from what we have been running.

Don't misunderstand me...I think we will see some different formations, plays (we will certainly throw the ball more and see some plays designed to take advantage of a mobile QB) and vastly different play calling, but that doesn't necessarily mean a new offense. If you want or are expecting an Air raid offense you will be very disappointed.

I mean Brian Schottenheimer came from the NFL, remember. I didn't notice a huge change in offensive philosophy when he came in. We were still run heavy. We had poor play calling.

I am not, by any means arguing that Monken will do a poor job. I just wouldn't expect an complete overhaul of our offense this year. Different? Yes. Not overhauled though.

It'll be a travesty if Kirby puts a governor on Monken. The guy is one of the better OCs in college football. I have trust the offense will change for the better.
