    So DeBesse is basically saying the same thing I and others have been saying about lack of OL experience and injuries. Of course DeBesse is never going to say "we need a better lineman at X", but we know there's that as well.

    While I don't like it... I'm okay with it to an extent. What I expect to see moving forward is improvement. We had a brutal opening to the season. Thankfully, the schedule appears to have "softened" just a bit as Troy and ULM may not be as good as expected. I do see opportunity to continue our work this year and really grow moving into next year. We are playing a bunch of underclassmen on offense... only 3 seniors (2 WR and Edwards on the OL). That's plenty of experience coming back for next season and I'd expect we see them really start building the rest of this season.

    Keep the faith... this thing is going to be rolling eventually and once it does, it will be hard to stop.

    Regarding that last piece about the dive and "feeling out process" because they don't know how the other team is going to play them....I feel like doing the same damn thing starting every game means the other team is going to play you the same damn way as everyone else because they see the reruns on tape.

    Then again I cancelled my ESPN+ subscription weeks ago because the team was so boring to watch and am mostly talking out of my *** about what they do. I don't really know but that feels right.

    If we come out as flat after this bye week as we did the last one I will be very disappointed. I too want to see improvement each week with two weeks to prepare we should drop the hammer on the Beach Chickens, but I have a feeling it will be way closer than we want.

    So, why can’t we execute a “feeling-out process” without running a Dive when everyone in the stadium knows its coming?

    I can agree with every excuse he gave and still scratch my head at how BLAND we have been. Seems like with all these thing he pointed out, we would be a little more creative.

    I posted this after the ULL game but I will post again. Debesse tried to do some different things against ULL on the opening drive.

    First drive Saturday vs ULL -

    Play 1 - dive to Wright gains 6
    Play 2 - triple option pitch to laroche
    Play 3 - (motion) dive to Logan Wright (first down!)
    Play 4 - (motion) end around to Malik Murray
    Play 5 - QB draw (4 wide WR set - pair of receivers stacked on each side)
    Play 6 - 5 wide (!!!) set, LB blitzes untouched resulting in Shai scramble. Horse collar, first down
    Play 7 - dive to King
    Play 8 - speed option to laroche
    Play 9 - (motion) triple option, pitch to Hood
    Play 10- FLEX load option tackled for loss
    Play 11 - triple option werts keeps for big gain
    Play 12 - dive to laroche (looks like he hit wrong hole)
    Play 13 - dive to laroche
    Play 14 - PA pass to D1 incomplete
    Play 15 - FG

    So 5/14 plays on first drive were dives. A couple of them may have been triple option reads but hard to tell. Varied alignments and formations, along with some motion mixed in. I'm not charting the rest of the game but at least we can see they're trying some things.

    Maybe we can throw the skunk out the boat Saturday. We sure need to.
    Here we go again with this conspiracy. Did you listen to the coaches show? Listen to what RJ3 says during the interview. This is a personnel issue. We ran the same offense last year. As you have said, you're not very good with x's and o's part of it. WK3 is a huge part of this offense whether he has the ball or not. I'm thinking we will see a lot of 3 wide sets with WK3 coming in motion and lead option plays. Plus about 15 pass attempts.
