ABJ: UAB -v- Akron scouting report

 

Read the scouting report.  It will certainly make you a more educated viewer of today's contest.

I do have to say, though, that the article on Coach Arth is very good.

Nice start...but now what?  Sense the wheels are coming off.  UAB shaking off their jet lag.

Let me correct that...NOW the wheels are all off.  That false start penalty on UAB ... Seems like it helped them.

This is a zero win team right now. 

 

The most concerning thing is the discipline penalties.

 

And getting shut down by a defense that has 9 new starters in their second game.

OMG!

Total ineptitude

Kickers that can't kick, punters that can't punt, Dbacks with no clue (maybe because of no pressure generated up front), ineffective offense.

We will be hard-pressed to win a game this year.

To be fair..the punter's last two were much better.  But yeah...0-12...it looks like.   I assume Arth didn't recruit Fitchen or Wheeland.  What soul-sucking game

This is the pro style offense that is going to focus on the run everyone has been talking about.

The defense makes a play!

The stats for the half were equal for both teams.   Field position was difference.  Bad kickoff leads to anotherTD.  Best part of game is the highlights from the 1976 Division 2 game

That was a fire Arth moment.  Why?  Why? 4th and 1...throw it to Lee 5 yards behind line of scrimmage.  What could go wrong?

That UAB coach is a lot like that Cherry Bowl coach...hes going to run up the score on Akron

We should have kept the guy that won a bowl game and beat a big ten team.

Looks can only get you so far and in this case it's Division 3.  Arth better be saving his $ he will be coaching Oberlin in a few years

+100x!!!

 

...and the guy who had national name recognition, gave us a MACC appearance, and won the most ever games in a season for an Akron D1 team.

 

Don't forget, we ate a year of a contract for this.

 

Even if the cupboard is currently bare, discipline issues and poor play calling are purely on the coach. While we suffered through some of that with Bowden, his teams were usually competitive and won some notable games and had a small handful of good seasons, particularly after bringing us back from the iCoach abyss. Why do I feel we have returned to that dark time?

Because that's your negative personality.

There was plenty to be positive about during Bowden's tenure, and I was among those supporters.

 

I've seen nothing so far this season to be positive about, especially considering this is at the expense of the premature sacking of the most successful D-1 coach we've ever had. Hence, my current negative disposition.

 

I guess most NEO sports fans are perpetually happy with what the prospects of starting over again might bring. I'm not among them.
