  1. Stidham passing charts

    Wow, if I'm reading this correctly, according to this chart, in the 10-19 yard range over the middle, Hurts is averaging 126.9 yards per completion. Most impressive, I guess their WRs are doing a "Bo out the stadium" for yards after catch. Bird, if I recall correctly, you are a coach. I posted a link earlier in this thread to Brady and Manning's charts. I would love your take on that vs Stidham. Personally, I think the notion that the passes should be equally spread out among the 9 boxes is not wise. I used a golf analogy earlier, but in baseball, they say "hit it where they ain't".

    Just noticed I went over 50 posts and am now "verified". "Momma says he's bona fide"

    Tre Williams out, doesn't look good, shoulder

    ULM all name team. Got a guy named Cortez Cisco. I'm humming both "Cortez the Killer" by Dave Matthews and "Cisco Kid" by War.

    Love how they show Rod and Stan as if that's the coach's booth...

    BTW Holland is back in and doing fine.

    Holland looks fine, trotting on sideline, testing out things. Maybe slight hyperextension on his knee?
  10. Stidham passing charts

    I have two thoughts to say about this topic. 1. In golf, aiming your approach shot at the pin is often a big mistake because it's often near an edge where bad things can happen. So unless you are dang sure you can pull it off, your best bet is to aim at the middle of the green. In football, maybe because the most jerseys of the opposite color are in the middle of the field, throwing the football there inherently increases the odds of bad things happening, so your best bet is to throw to the sides. Now, if they absolutely void the middle, then that's different, but generally that's not the case. 2. Here is an article discussing the passing distribution of a couple of pretty good QB's. Notice the completion % mid-range is about the same as Stidham. Notice Stidham actually has a higher % downfield than these two guys. Notice that they don't have nears as many attempts, completions or TD's over the middle as they do on the sides.
  11. Score Prediction- Georgia

    We didn't have our act together at Clemson, new QB, new OC, away game, their QB is much better than expected. We were blowing out LSU and Gus went ultra conservative and now all the natives are on his back relentlessly. He hasn't made the same mistake since. He knows the stakes in this game. GA only beat us last year 13-7 at their place with pretty much the same team on their side (QB Fromm is maybe one notch better than Eason) and a much worse team on our side (Sean was injured and is no where near as good stretching the field as Stidham). Had we any offense passing last year, we win. In fact, simply without the pick six, we very well may have have won by just running. GA has played a terribly weak schedule compared to AU's and hasn't been tested other than maybe a questionable ND team (the east has only 3 wins vs west) We have two common opponents (MState and Mizzou) that we beat worse on the road than GA beat at home. GA is the more one dimensional offense than we are. They want to blitz us but know we can hit the deep ball, a much higher risk for them they didn't face last year. Don't believe me, look at Mizzou burning them deep (and remember how pathetic we made Mizzou look) Jordan Hare crowd will be a huge factor. You can bet the team has had this game circled on the calendar since last year. We were on a roll and it stopped in Athens, it's payback time. AU 34-GA 17 Holland hammers Fromm as he throws and Trigga Trey intercepts to ice it
  12. Georgia Week!

    Kirby gets trucked (somebody that knows how to link to the video please do!)
  13. Score Prediction- LSU (merged threads)

    A couple of facts from Phillip Marshall article I found interesting: 1. Last week vs OM, Auburn’s 391 first-half yards were the second most in a half in Auburn history. 2. Auburn has held opponents without a first-quarter touchdown 10 times in the past 11 games. Assuming a turnover margin of +/-1, here's my prediction. At half time, we are up 21-3 (maybe more). End of 3rd, 35-6, final of 38-16. They get 10 points against our backups and next week we hear more complaints that we didn't "look good" in the 4th and we should have let Malik throw more. (to which I refer back to the Curley INT fest) Just get the W and move on to the next one.
