  1. Another point of interest. Our DL made FOUR tackles on the day. Yes that is 4 tackles not sacks. By contrast Miami had 7 sacks 6 by the DL. The offense will only go as far as the OL period. They played 4 RS Freshman who have played 3 games together. That is where it starts, oh with no spring practice OR summer workouts. So let's understand that this is going to take time. Gibson is a gunslinger, Dollard is a stud, and the WRs can play in the MAC. (By far our best position group). So we have to fix the DL and OL needs to mature. Simple as that
  2. Offensively: OL was awful today. Our QB NEVER has time to throw. When he does he executes pretty well. When he doesn't is when his mistakes happen. OL missed all blitz pickups. Center got replaced because of all of the missed middle blitz pickups. 4 yds rushing will get you beat every game.
  3. Offensively: OL was awful today. Our QB NEVER has time to throw. When he does he executes pretty well. When he doesn't is when his mistakes happen. He made two poor throws today. The rest he did well. Kid is only a freshman and will get better IF the OL gets better. OL missed all blitz pickups (Coaching???) Center got replaced because of all of the missed middle blitz pickups. 4 yds rushing will get you beat every game. Defensively: We put zero pressure on their QB. Upfront we get manhandled. LBs actually played well stopping the run today. DBs are just not good. Blame it on youth, blame it on skill, blame it physicality, whatever. They have to be better.
  4. I understand we are getting 3-4 guys back on defense. Cross, Wilson, Scott and C. Thomas. Mathison will play limited minutes but will return. Still not sure about Kato availability. I see this game as competitive. I think we continue to progress offensively but will give up too many points. Getting better and improving is what I want to see. Beat BG and then we have something to build on going into next year.
  5. I know it's tough to relax when there has been 20 consecutive losses but let's look at the upside. 1) This season is really just an evaluation period for 6 weeks. Everything will carry over. These young players 74% of roster is Freshman/Sophomore's will get tremendously better in the off season with a strength and conditioning coordinator that is very highly respected. 2) Offensively they are way better off than last year and it's not even close. The offensive line will only get better and will be together for 4 years. Add Nate Williams and Ronan Chambers and some depth and you can argue in 2 years will be best in the MAC. 3) RBs improved over last season, again not even close. Need more depth with untested Freshman. 4) WRs improved over last season as a group. Qualls and Grimes big upgrades. Stewart is the senior leader. Mathison been injured but future is very bright. 5) QB room has competition now. Nelson is injured but will return at some point. Gibson upside is off the charts. You can tell he is a leader. He can make all the throws. His issue is trying to do too much be because of being desperate to win. Bringing in kid from Vero Beach in January is only gonna solidify that position moving forward. 6) Defense needs to get bigger and faster period. DL is young and weak but will benefit with off season training. May need a couple of transfers at this position. 7) LBs are too small and not physical. Struggle in passing game and overmatched. Bubba does it with heart but seriously 210lb LBs is not a good template. Need a transfer or two at this position. 😎 DBs are young and need to get stronger. They lose every physical battle thus far this season. Poor in tackling, poor in coverage. Look confused. Watts, Cochran and Ogbonna will get better with offseason workouts. Bottomline we gotta be patient. The real Year 2 for Arth begins in 2021.
  6. I have watched this forum for 2 years and finally glad to join the discussion. 1st of all, if you don't see the improvement in the program over the last year and half you're blind. The offense is tremendously better and actually competitive. OL is gonna only get better with off season strength and conditioning. WR group is alot better than last year. More experienced and more talented. RB group is so far ahead of last year it's not even close. Last season we started a walkon 5'6 165lb RB. QB position is only gonna get better with reps. Gibson has a cannon and leadership qualities this team needs. You can see his passion that will equate to success in the future. He is a Freshman. Now defense is another issue. Tuesday they were missing alot of players. The scheme has to improve. We are not physical yet. Will take another year. But this year will allow us to catch up . Recruiting is the key. Period. Need pieces to compete at this level. But I assure you we are on the right path. Patience
