Thread: Excitement

  1. #1

    Default Excitement

    Despite the concerns of the Covid 19 situation I can’t help but get excited about the upcoming football season. Can you imagine the three headed monster at running back that is Wright, Kennedy, and King! Also, I think having Ruse back is going to help with the blocking as well as the experience the line has gotten from being forced into “next man up situations”. Also, our front 8 should be nasty!

    How is having Ruse back going to help with the blocking?

    Do our tight ends not block?

    Well he was the OC the last time he was here and we didn’t have blocking issues then. As the OC I would assume he had some understanding of the overall blocking scheme we were using. If we’re solely using him just to coach TEs then I think we are missing a good opportunity.

    Because he will be OC before game 4 if things don’t look a LOT better

    I don’t think we are.

    I think he is effectively the co-OC. They just put him as a position coach because the contract situation is easier.

    Hopefully, he can fix the heck out of blocking. Obviously, players have not been understanding when/who to block

    The 1 TE going to block his guy and the other 5 defenders our OL misses? (Smile)

    Our OL wasn’t dominant because of Ruse. Obviously he has an understanding of the blocking scheme Under his offense. But So did Gillespie/Dean, Cook, ans Debeese...and how has that worked out for us? There are 2 reason our OL wasn’t an issue under Ruse...Brent David and Alex Atkins.

    Now I do agree that if we are solely using him to coach TE then we are missing a good opportunity. But expecting him to have any influence (outside of convincing DeBeese that maybe our OL’s hips shouldn’t be touching) on our blocking is asking way too much. I mean we all know what should have happened but Lunsford is too much Richt and not enough Kirby so here we are.

    I'll take Richt all day every day.

    Kirby threw that game for the with the wildcat.

    No middle school coach would make such a bonehead special teams call...

    (Interesting how so many of his "mistakes" boil down to "odd" special teams decisions. Pretty convenient)

    Never, ever trust anyone who has spent so much time around Saban.
