    I have a bad feeling about the ending of this game.

    No sense of urgency, no creativity to get momentum.

    We pulled it out. Definitely happy for the win but we have a lot of work to do.

    Our youth and inexperience is showing through. It doesn't help our Co-Oc's seem to have no idea at times. speed option has worked about 1 of every 10 times we run it. We have ZERO offensive creativity

    And honestly we should expect to see the same results until we start throwing and completing the ball with confidence. We have to start making the defenses fear our passing game ... Which then, believe it or not, opens up our running game to be that much more effective.

    Everything starts with line blocking, passing down field, and running the ball.

    JT's 25th game as a starter–his first without a TD.

    Urban Meyer sets the game plan and gets every call over his headset.........buck stops with him.

    Couple of observatuons because sitting in the stands allowed me to see a lot more than I do on TV obviously.

    I noticed that JT gives that pump fake far too much. He will have a receiver open but still try to freeze a Safety. By that time, the open receiver is no longer open, which forces him to throw it into the flat damn near every passing play. I dont know if this is a JT issue or a Beck issue but it really needs to stop on every single passing play.

    Also, Damon Webb is just absolutely atrocious! But we all knew that. There needs to be a change made.

    Hooker's instincts are like none I've ever seen live. Guy is a very special player!

    Curtis Samuel needs to watch some tape on Zeke. There was about three times yesterday that if he would have just stuck his toe in the ground and got north and south he would have scored. He tries to use his blocks more than using his speed. If he stops dancing so much, look out!

    JT must not trust James Clark to catch the ball because he is literary blowing past everyone on go routes. He has ridiculous speed!

    Lastly...Warriner and Beck have a difficult time adjusting. It's like we script a game and if it's not working, we can't adjust. Very frustrating

    Suddenly our offensive line has been in-consistent...............

    Which has led to play calls being of the conservative nature.........

    Which has led to defenses keying on our tendencies..........

    It is a domino effect.........

    The speed option should be removed from our offense until we can consistently run our power running game.........

    I was thinking the same..............a fake loses its effectiveness if it used every play........

    I cannot disagree..........he has struggled covering the slot or anyone else.......

    That has been the case since Meyer has been here..............they make great adjustments at halftime but cannot seem to make adjustments in game........

    nice insights, 502 ... Such a shame about Clarke. We need to hit that vertical threat, if we want to open up the run game.

    Sounds like JT needs to trust his initial reads, and let the ball fly. That would also help with our o-line issues.

    At this point, Webb is clearly the weak link of our defense.
