    Lunsford:s future depends on recruiting, developing and retaining great players. If he succeeds in that our two coordinators will look like geniuses.

And 2 of those 2015 signees were good enough to be starters as freshmen which is why they aren’t around anymore. We have OL issues right now but none of those are Fritz’s fault.
    I posted a few years ago, the farther away we get from 2014-15, the more we will realize what a hell of a good HC Willie Fritz was/is. But haters going to hate. Thanks Half for posting a little reality.

    Works two ways. The further we get away, and the more bad results pour in running this type of offense, the more everyone should realize switching from the flexbone was a stupid decision. Again.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    Y'all gonna make me cuss.

    First, I'm not crazy about the O play calling either. But a lot of our lack of success is due to ol injuries. It inhales vigorously, but it is our current reality. Still, we aren't executing the pitch, making defenders commit before pitching etc.
    But our Defense got shreaded.

    Our Offense needs help.

    But this whole blame it on the option generic crap is horse hockey. You think we are struggling now? Imagine a decimated ol without our running strength!

    We better stick to our identity.
    We are Option U.

    This thread is an attack on the option in all forms.

    "Nobody runs it anymore" BS!
    I see it more than ever from the gun.

    We can argue Fritz style versus Flex but we ain't going west coast, fun and gun.

    I prefer the flex. And while we're on that, it's not "figured out" and "it won't work at this level" is a total farce.
    We can, do get better Athletes than the service academies. If they can do what they are doing in better conferences than ours, imagine what we could do with it in the Belt. And don't give me the Army has ran out of surprise now junk, are you not aware of their injury struggles this season? Yes they lost to GAST. But so did Troy and Tennessee, etc.


    There are plenty of option players available. Yes, we need to work on the passing game.

    I don't want to be CrApp State.
    We can be much more, the option can get us there.
    So they beat Muschamp, so did we. I'm glad they did and UNC.

    We don't need to follow their path. Let's just do us better.
    If that means going back to the Flex at some point... Fine.
    But for now, there is. No Reason we can't dominate with a good gun option if we can get healthy and call better plays.

    I'll say this though. IF we ever do run the Flex at this level, with the right coaching staff.... You'd see it's success like no other place. An FBS program, located in the perfect recruiting spot with no player restrictions (military life or Academic),... It'd really be something. An Offense just contrary enough to make it a more difficult to prepare for than all the gun options..... Ahhhh, I'd love to see it.

    But hey, it ain't over this season.
    We need to find away to win out and hope GAST beats App St.

    You start with the concept we are trying to run and move toward it yes. We do have other QBs if he can’t pick the concepts up. If not we recruit a stud.

    Typed a long response to this, but deleted it. Let me just say this. People were upset/frustrated with the situation after he left more than anything, but I don't know anyone that hates WF, maybe u do.

    No. That doesn't fix it at all. Not even close.

    Go ahead and test your theory. Plug in the offense that LSU runs, or UGA and the like. Plug in an offense that requires we have a true pocket passing QB, 5 OL at the top of their game and NFL caliber WRs.

    See how far down the line we get on recruiting those skill sets. Sure, we could get App State level and other Sun Belt - but that doesn't exactly rocket us to the top and sustain us in the top 25.

    But.. . we can get just about the best players for the other system I mentioned. You can't simply run any scheme and get the best players for that scheme here when the majority of the rest of the country is going after those same guys including the entire P5. We can be good, and get good players. We can win a lot probably with any system.

    But have a scheme that wins like it has nowhere else in the FBS? No. There is only 1 system that fits that equation. The P5s won't run it and that leaves the G5 their choice of players who are especially blessed to run it. The only G5s really running it are the service Academies and GT WAS doing it. ALL of them have special recruiting restrictions limiting it from reaching its full potential.


    Given my choice, I'd run the flex. I'm not really here to push it though over our gun option right now though.
    I am saying that there is no doubt we need to stay with an option based offense and not just "insert any offense" here.
    We just need to do what we do better and be healthy.
    We'd be stinking it up right now even worse with any other scheme with all the coaching turnover we've had and injuries.

    Stay the course...... Live by it and die by it, the option is who we are.
