    Tall receiver in Fullwood, DROB has shown skills to go up and get the ball.


    Any fade routes in our arsenal?

    Well, JD does tend to overthrow the receiver, but I'm afraid they would need to be a couple feet taller to have a shot...

    I was a bit upset when Driskel was blamed for that throw to Dunbar in the Toledo game at the back corner of the end zone. Not that he shouldn't have thrown it sooner, but Dunbar didn't even try to come down on the right foot.

    Also, don't really mind overthrows on those, we've seen the alternative of interceptions enough I think. If he's gonna miss, by all means throw it at the scoreboard. I'd rather take some shots, only way to correct it is to watch yourself overthrow it a few times, and Dunbar had a few good snags in the Miami game on balls he needed to jump for.

    Apparently there are not many or any timing routes in our pass game. First, because our depleted OL would get Driskel maimed, and secondly...jump balls are supposedly for the NBA not D1 college football unless we have high jumpers who can do a 40" vertical.

    Totally agree with the OP. If you have guys like Fullwood (6-5) or Drob (who knows how to go up and get balls), it needs to be part of your plan of attack in the redzone. Especially on first down plays. The corner fade is a safe play in that it should be thrown with only two possibilities - be caught by the receiver just in bounds or go out of bounds.

    Is a Fade Route some special type of Run Block? Because if its not then we probably aren't going to do it with a Freshman, Will doesn't play Freshman on offense unless absolutely forced too.

    I do worry at some point these WRs are going to look at our game film and realize that whatever the recruiters are telling them about us opening up the offense once they get to campus and them getting a chance to contribute as Freshman might not but wholly true.

    Not sure we have such dire troubles with the red zone scheme:

    1. We scored a TD our first time.
    2. Jeff had a wide open Dunbar in the end zone the play before his first INT.
    3. We were moving the ball in the red zone when Trey fumbled.
    4. We should have made the fourth and one.

    The play-calling inside the red zone could have been better, but none of those seem to have been a result of a poor red zone scheme. Heck the biggest problem with our red zone offense has arguable been the OL...

    The Oline has changed drastically from a personel standpoint for when it was first projected, gone are starting right Tackel Green, left Tackel Humpries could not play the second half, starting gaurd Halopo has been out, Moore had to go out still waiting on a status yes the OL could be the problem !:dead:

    Honestly after Saturday, I'm willing to bet our redzone offense is about the only think we work on during the bye. So it should improve dramatically. Otherwise, it's time to start kicking field goals once we get to the 25, regardless of the down and distance.

    I think some of us are being too hard on Driskel for overthrowing Dunbar in endzone. If you watch the play again, you'll see a linebacker parked over the middle in Dunbar's lane. Jeff had to put a little air on it to avoid a tipped pass or an interception.

    If were talking about red zone and not the lack of scoring or our Off.Then the Miami game was a fluke.We had 3 TO'S in the red zone Sat. and 3 ALL of last year.....

    Typical Miami fan! Can't afford to go clubbing in South Beach on a McDonald's team leader pay!

    We're stuck with him until the third shift starts at 11pm!

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    on that play the LB Perryman read the play and jumped into the passing lane. It looked like Jeff was trying to not throw a pick which he ended up doing the next play

    If I was a WR and saw tape of the UM game I'd be pretty happy to see that the QB threw for 292 yards and that two WRs combined had 209 yards of receptions.

    As for getting a chance as freshmen I can't imagine that WM promised them anything other than exactly that - they'd get a chance. AFAIK they have. Just because they haven't yet become a major part of the offense doesn't mean they've had no chances.
