    1. We have a great D, shaky at first but played really well.
    2. JD missed wide open receivers often. Why he throws to covered receivers I don't know. Several replays we had guys open and often didn't go to them. I don't know why he does this.
    3. Pease insist on runs up the middle that put the O in bad position often. Thats not good coaching period.
    4. This was a rival game, for the most part UM kept their composure, we didn't, that's on the coaches imo.
    5. This mode of offense continues to have trouble scoring. Whether is driskel or play calls or penalties, bottom line that has to be corrected and so far it has not. That's on coaching. We have enough top players to be so inept and impotent.
    6. Unless we become more balanced, mixing it up, we will continue to struggle. Now it may be possible coaches know/see JD makes poor decisions in practice and thus are forced to run run run. Greir may be starter from day one.
    It may be possible that JD has all the tools but simply doesn't apply himself or has not been properly coached. But a good bit falls on his shoulders, he has guys open.

    Here's the problem with our offense.

    - 1st down run for 3 yds.
    - 2nd down pass for 3-4 yards.

    Now you're in a 3rd and manageable, not bad... until you get a 5 yard false start or 10 yard holding penalty, now you're in 3rd and long.

    Repeat over and over again.

    It's just not an effective way to score points.

    Pease doesn't know what vanilla is. That's why JD misses wide open receivers. We should have been working on our passing game against Toledo. Our coaches don't agree, and I think they're just wrong.

    UF's current offense is painfully boring to me. As long as UF wins, that's fine, I think most fans will deal with it. But if we lose to teams we're supposed to beat? I think UF fans will be less patient with coaches who lose with an overly conservative offense than with coaches that show some imagination on the offensive side of the ball.

    Exactly right. We don't execute well enough for that game plan to work.

    Well the issue is you have to repeat that sequence 6+ in a drive to score. The fact is it is very difficult to have 14 play drives. At some point you'll fail to convert a third down. At some point you'll be in third and long.

    Yep. It really is not a smart strategy.

    The plan certainly is blah, but the bigger issue is our ability to execute on a short field. We don't freak and throw the ball away or option out of a qb sneak and we have a chance to win ugly ... our mo.

    And at some point you can't rely on your defense to shut out every team you play (especially teams that have 10 returning starters on offense).

    And at some point you can't rely on your defense having a +15 turnover margin.

    It's piss poor coaching....on the O side of the ball. It doesn't take 3 years. Look at Tennessee the last 2 weeks!

    Our defense essentially has to pitch a no hitter. They gave up one long touchdown drive. The other two were on short fields. But that was enough

    Look at Tennessee their first two weeks of last year. Then look at their season.

    Not a good analogy

    This is a great point. You're only waiting for something bad to happen when you have so many 3rd and short's. Drive after drive we had 3rd and 2. Miami played bend don't break defense and waited for us to self implode. All while they throw up 2 passes on the first 2 possessions and put up a quick 14.

    You have to eventually have a quick strike mentality. Without it, teams have zero fear of you stretching the field.

    Yes exactly. We are making it so much harder on ourselves for some reason. It's really not all that difficult.

    You guys are forgetting about time of possession and building toughness by running into 8 man fronts all day. Offense is not just about scoring points.

    Unfortunately, there's a bunch of people that really believes this...

    After looking at other SEC teams throughout the day everyone seems to be able to score more than 30pts in a game except us! I don't want to hear excuses about change of system or new O Cordinator either...other teams have the same challenges. Heck look at Tennessee with a new coach, they are putting up some serious points, A&M just blasted over 50, Miss State was up there as well as Mizzu. I am not sure WHAT the answer is but we better find the ability to score soon!

    After further review, OUR OFFENSE IS A JOKE... Yes, A JOKE. An absolute joke. I drank the cool aid.... Over and over.... I believed... Not anymore. This is flat terrible. Driskel is a junior and he's in year two with this system. I'm so deflated after this game.... Embarrassing... I truly thought we were better than this.

    I'm convinced the HC actually believes this.

    I am going to watch the game again in the next few days but for all this crying about throwing it down field. If the team would have just stop trying to score once they got in the red zone and kicked field goals we probably win the game.
