Good news/bad news for Week 6


Recommended Posts

So that was a woodshedding. Not a ton of good to take away, but there are a few nuggets:

Good News: We cut down on penalties, and had half as many as the week before (5).
Bad News: We still had twice as many as our competition.

Good News: As a group, Kevin, Juju and MarShawn averaged more than 4 yards a carry for the first time this season (IIRC).
Bad News: When you are down 28-0 in the first quarter they tend to give you you those runs; not sure how much they tell us.

Good News: Not counting FCS foe EIU, we racked up our highest yard total of the season.
Bad News: Still lost by a ton.

Good News: Our coaching staff is looking for ways to be creative on offense.
Bad news: Nothing says "I don't trust us to be able to do it the old fashioned way" than a gimmick play at 1st and goal from the 1.

Not much confidence in your offensive line, or your offensive coordinator. 

And I have no confidence in our Head Coach

For just a tiny two-letter word, that one packs a lot of whallop.

Oh I agree that "if" is a magic word.  If they had run Harris up the middle 4 times and he was stopped at the one foot line on 4th down the same people complaining about the pass would have complained that we tried to run it up the middle when we should have tried to pass once or twice.

All of the good plays are ones that work and bad plays are the ones that don't.

Totally agree.
