    Question about Gus and play design

    That offense was pretty much figured out by all of the legitimate teams we played THAT SEASON. It was a lot of yardage and points against teams inferior to us, but the SEC competition didn't have too much trouble stopping it, even with the gimmicks.

    No they don't LOL. His offense utilizes guys that can specialize in dinky gadget plays (screens, sweeps, etc), and it utilizes deep-threats. Both are essentially just ways to open up or extend the running game: the gadget plays act as de-facto runs that force the defense to respect the width of the field whereas they would just bottle everything up inside, and the deep plays are there to stop the safeties from crashing everything down. They also work in opposites, ie: when the run is working they can use the deep threats to punish the defense and achieve easy touchdowns. The third way that he uses receivers is as blockers, which is what NCM was doing. There is a reason why when this offense is FORCED to pass (ie: the run is either completely stopped, or we are so far down that running is a waste of time) it can't do ANYTHING. It is almost useless. The reason is simple: this offense has no established pass game that works on its own.

    Sounds good. Continue homering it up for Pee Wee Gus as you wish. BTW; Will Hastings has dropped a lot of balls LOL. Seth Williams, the talented kid who has seemingly taken all of NCM's targets, has dropped like half the balls that hit his hands so far this season.

    A guy with his size doesn't need to "create separation" over the middle or on crossing routes. Midget receivers like the two you described do. NCM is not a bubble-screen receiver and he's not a deep-threat specialist. That is basically 95% of the WR usage in this stupid offense. Unfortunately, the things he is good at are things we never bother to do. They are also things that if implemented would stop making this offense so routinely pathetic.

    Couldn't have said it any better. The cognitive dissonance of this fanbase is mind-blowing. I'll repeat it a thousand times; In ~10 years, Gus has had two receivers get a sniff in the NFL and both got that opportunity solely because of their tested results at the Combine. Neither had a clue how to play receiver, which is why neither succeeded in the NFL. At some point you have to turn your brain on and understand that the results speak for themselves, and you can only peddle so much horse manure. When you sign like 15+ 4-star or better receivers over 10 years and the sum of their careers is catching a ball or two a game, its an offensive philosophy problem. Unironically, every passing-oriented QB also seems to magically regress or look pedestrian in this offense. Hmmmmm. Its almost as if there is some connection here?

    Yeah bro, I'm sure you are completely dialed in to evaluating the WR blocking in live snaps. That is obviously the first thing that anyone watching football pays attention to.

    This. This kid is a "quitter", yet our head coach was using his agent to feint interest in another job as we were a game away from potentially playing for a Championship just last season SMH. At no point in time will I EVER critique a decision made by a player to leave or do anything in their best interest.

    Will Stidham Return for 2019 Season?

    He does not have "so far" to go LOL. He would look 10x better in a competent offense immediately. He looked better as a true freshman at Baylor. Most of you continue to fail to understand that NFL teams scout tools, not perceived performance which very often isn't a reflection of the QB at all. Nix doesn't belong in this offense either.

    Will Stidham Return for 2019 Season?

    No, he won't, regardless of whether or not you think he looks "ready to take his game to the next level". There is nothing for him to learn in this offense. He is better off sitting on any NFL team's bench and letting actual coaches teach him.

    Jalen Harris to redshirt then transfer

    NCM is considering transferring too. Obviously not happy playing 5 snaps a game.

    Question about Gus and play design

    LMFAO, who are you again? I can't tell all the morons I've slapped around on here apart anymore.

    Question about Gus and play design

    LSU was jumping and sitting on every route, just like they did last season. Arranda knows our whole passing game better than Malzahn does. That is why Stidham was "pissing his pants" and bailing. Some of you are clueless and have no clue what you're even watching. Stidham should never have even came here, and he should have left last season. This is a graveyard for quarterbacks like him. Malzahn can't even recognize when the defense is basically calling the plays as they come in. If you noticed, Stidham had no problem during the mid-point of the game when we had LSU confused for a few drives....which in typical Malzahn fashion doesn't last long.

    Legatron waived by Vikings

    No, Aguayo. The kid that won the Garza over Carlson the one year. He played against us when FSU beat us for the championship.

    Legatron waived by Vikings

    Translating kicking success from college to the NFL is among the most difficult in the sport. Most of the best kickers in the league came from no-name schools and were not Garza winners. Carlson wouldn't be the first "hyped" kicker to flop in the NFL; the same thing happened with the kid from FSU who Tampa stupidly drafted in the 2nd round. Being a good kicker in college really doesn't seem to mean a whole lot in terms of predicting future success.
