    If you were the coach

    Glad you are doing as you put it as well as can be. How many treatments are you going to have if you don't mind me asking? My wife had to take 6 for her breast cancer. Still thinking of you and praying for you and your family. I lived it with my wife and trust me it's hard on your family too. My GOD be with you.

    I used to think Gus did not need a DT QB but I'm starting to change my mind and agree with you on that.

    Stidham's Accuracy

    You know I thought Gus was a good OC but I've never thought he was a good QB coach.

    Where do you stand with Gus?

    I would say he doesn't seem to know what he wants. He recruits a passer in JS and Bo Nix and a runner in Joey G and M. Willis. It's confusing to me that you would recruit those very different QB's to run the same type O. Gus needs to settle on what O he wants and recruit the players to run that O.

    I think JS needs better QB coaching is his main problem. He was better when he got here than he is now and that tells me he is getting bad coaching. We need a real SEC proven OC that is also a good QB coach if we are going to ever be a passing team of any kind with Gus as our head coach.

    To me Gus needs to decide what kind of offense he truly wants to run. Then go out and recruit players to run that offense, if he wants to pass the ball(which it looks like he doesn't) he needs to get a OC that can coach QB's(JS looks as if he has regressed). If he wants to run a read option O then recruit a running QB not a JS or a BN. You have got to start with a plan of what you intend to do and recruit towards that type of O. Different O's require different type players and not skill players different linemen and all. A FAIL TO PLAN IS A PLAN TO FAIL and sometimes it seems Gus does not have a plan or if he does he failing very bad.

    Are there solutions with the OL?

    You may very well be right. There was talk of change to the blocking scheme. Also I think the D coordinators have figured out some things and our coaches have not adjusted. Chavis is no slouch, he knows how to run a D. Same for the guys at LSU and UW. We have played some very good D coordinators this year and will face more.

    Great question Doc and I don't have the answer. But to me none of the O-linemen are playing winning football. Harrell seems to be playing the better of the group so I wouldn't move him, Brahms may have been slightly better than Kim but would have to watch the game again to see. Tega so so Horton needs to sit and give Ashley a try but I'm not sure he will be any better, same with Driscoll let Trox have a turn and see if he can do better. I do know the o-line is at the root of the offenses problems and until thay improve the o will struggle.

    Well, I can tell you I've never hit the bonus and I've never won the TD Auburn Bowl, if that helps. I'm almost to the point of not even entering a score it's so bad.

    Arkansas Game Report Card

    I did see him in the booth. If you want to call what were seeing play calling, then I guess he is, who knows it may still be Gus calling the plays for all I know.

    Arkansas Game Report Card

    It all starts up front and our O-line is just plain bad. We can't throw deep to back the defense up because we can't block well enough, JS doesn't have time for the route to develop. We can't run the ball either because the O-line can't open up any holes for the backs. Until the O-line is fixed the offense will struggle and I don't see how it's going to get fixed. I had high hopes that JB could fix the mess Hand left, but it's looking like we just don't have the players. It also looks as if the coaches don't know the identity of this team and if they want to be a passing team or running team or how to use the talent they have. I'm just very depressed over what I've seen from the offense so far this season. On the bright side what about that DEFENSE.

    Dixie 1860 Passes Away

    I did not know him but I do remember reading his posts. He always seemed to know what he was talking about. RIP DIXIE 1860 and prays for your family.
