    Asa redshirt screwup??

    This is 100% fact. Asa was under the impression that he would be a redshirt this year, and the coaches failed him. He did not play against Tennessee for this very reason.

    Don't Fire Gus Malzahn

    Find someone who has a passion for the game as much as the players do and let them change the culture. The longer we hang on to him, the longer we will suffer as a program. He will get paid regardless of the outcome.

    What would you do to fix the O?

    This is a simple question with a simple answer. We have play-makers on the offensive side, we just don't use them to our advantage. Sure, our offensive line has issues, but we don't help our QB. We call plays that only allow for downfield development. With these kinds of plays, you expect your offensive line to block for an extended period of time. If I were in the OC shoes, it's simple: Call short passing routes to open up the run. Utilize the size of the WRs who have been recruited to go against larger secondaries and let them GET the ball; Slants, quick outside routes, etc. If they run the routes properly, which we seem to do fairly well, hit them and let them get the YACs. Once the defense backs off of the line of scrimmage, use your RBs to get yards. Look back to the MSU game - we started throwing over the middle of the field at the end of the 4th quarter. This kind of adjustment should be made well before then, yet our HC is too damn stubborn to make that adjustment. He thinks his style of offense is the only way to be successful. Deep shots are/can be pivotal to success, too, but shorter routes will give the QB and WRs confidence going forward. We're not a run first team right now and it's a shame that our HC is too prideful to make changes to put the PLAYERS in the best position possible to make plays.

    Defensive Coordinator Diiscussion

    Just food for thought here, but if we don't hire someone today/tomorrow we are shooting ourselves in the foot. The recruiting dead period begins Sunday and runs through the middle of January. Recruits want to see what type of defense they can expect to walk into in the bowl game. I would if I was considering my college plans. After mid-January we only have around two weeks to talk with recruits again. If we hire Muschamp today, and he brings T-Rob and Rocker with him, recruits will be fired up. Again, just food for thought. War Eagle.

    Amen to this. Great coach and great man.

    3-4-4 Defense Possibilities

    It's also worth noting that there are quite a few offensive plays in the highlights as they beat Cincy 41-14.

    3-4-4 Defense Possibilities

    Odom's defense looks really close to what we use now, but it could have more 3-4 involved. I would not be surprised to see his name really gain steam if Coach Boom doesn't pick AU. If that's the case, I'd love for us to look at Dave Aranda too. He could do some great things with our guys. Muschamp would make for the easiest transition. Odom and Aranda both claim to be 3-4 guys. Both are excellent defensive minds. I guess I need to find some Memphis football footage and look at what Odom has been doing there. Here is a great example of Memphis against Cincy from this year.

    3-4-4 Defense Possibilities

    A 3-4 base could work for the current situation that we have with our downhill LBs. Speed and size could produce turnovers and big, defensive stops. Our secondary should be in better shape with the DBs being larger than they have been. Shifting would have to take place for the line, but it could work.

    3-4-4 Defense Possibilities

    Correct. It would be tough to transition straight from a 4-2-5 base to a 3-4, but it's not completely out of the question. Many "3-4" coaches play a lot of four and five-man fronts anyway. See the Memphis defense. It could work for us really well in a couple of years.

    Marshall Info for Saturday?

    While the passing game has been lacking at times, the entire blame cannot be placed on NM. Last week on a route down the sideline, Sammie could have easily laid out for the deep ball that NM threw. At some point the WRs have to take some responsibility for missed catches and opportunities. It'd be great to score on every play, but we all know that can't happen. Sacrifice your body for a catch and get the team in the best possible place to score.

    Marshall Info for Saturday?

    I agree in principle in terms of athletes but playing QB is an entirely different dynamic that requires a lot more than just athleticism. The coaches will strategically manage JJ in a way that provides the most return to the team. Im just looking at WCU and A&M and cant see why they dont just play JW and keep JJ on the sidelines in case JW cant get it done. Gus and Rhett have both praised JW - let him play and save JJs RS if at all possible Strictly based on observations from last weeks game, JW was signaling in plays all game long. JJ was on the sideline geared up to enter the game at any moment, especially after NM was hurt. Gus and Rhett have praised JW, but I don't think they feel that he is the answer to the most equipped person to take over if NM can't play.

    Marshall Info for Saturday?

    Here's how I see it: 1. Burn the RS and JJ gets valuable playing time before we head to TAMU. 2. Keep the RS, Marshall could go down this week or next if his knee is that bad, and JJ has his first test at TAMU. I would much rather have him start/play tomorrow than next week. Do I think it is a bummer to lose JJ's RS status? Yes. Could it benefit us in the long run? Absolutely. The kid is a beast and has all of the potential in the world to be a game changer immediately and he has GM and RL to continuously develop his play. He IS the future of that team and he needs his bumps and bruises now. I think we have made our way out of the RS type players era, unless it is for medical reasons. These athletes coming out of high school are entirely too good to be on the bench for a year.
