    Again, listen to the interview and you don't get that. Pease is responding to a question about balancing taking risks versus taking care of the ball in the red zone. All you can infer from his response is that they don't want the quarterback improvising in the redzone because it can potentially take points of the board. He wasn't talking about the rest of the field, he wasn't making a point about Driskel's turnovers, and he wasn't setting out some corrective or prescription.

    It's just so frustrating that it took a loss like Miami to remind the coaches that we NEED to be conservative to win games. If they had just stuck to the script we would be undefeated right now.

    Thanks for typing that out.

    My feeling on what he said was that perhaps Pease felt he was giving Driskel too many options or too much leeway to make a play, and that Driskel was making some bad choices.

    And, his comment about a mosh pit of humanity on the sneak . . . IMO that wasn't the problem as much as it is that we don't execute the sneak worth a darn.

    I think what you are missing is that going from mediocrity to excellence is not done with the flip of a switch. It takes time.

    You advocate finding someone to develop - who do you think is better to develop right now than Driskel.

    Right now, we honestly do not have other options at QB. Just the facts man. Right now, we are developing receivers. Right now, we are limited at what we have to develop at TE.

    Doing something just for the sake of doing it is not necessarily the way to improve.

    Wait, now we need to be more conservative? In what way weren't we conservative enough? I mean, you can't attribute Burton's fumble or missed route that led to an INT to either being conservative or not. About the only argument you could make is that we should have taken the field goal rather than gone for the sneak (which is fair) or that Driskel should have eaten the ball or thrown it away on the first INT (which really wasn't a coaching decision at all).

    You know, I don't even take that much from it. There is a trick to the trade in journalism that you never cite a question asked when writing about the answer because that takes away from the narrative. But the question asked is essential to understand what the respondent said, as are the full answer and all its nuance. If you have ever been interviewed for a story and were shocked to see how the reporter actually uses your responses, you will now how limited bites and clips are.

    The fact is that Pease did not volunteer a position, but answered in a very cautious, balanced way so as to indicate to the media (not Driskel!) how the staff (and not just this staff!) approach a redzone play call. Whether it is Driskel or some other quarterback, the basic rule of thumb is that you don't risk a turnover in the red zone when there are points to be had and you don't risk going backwards and getting yourself out of field goal range. Driskel did that once. It isn't like he did it all game long or even that he repeated the same error. But, in the first interception, that was clearly on him and Pease, in responding to the question about it, gave a nuanced answer that explained what they want in that situation. That is really it.

    tennessee's D isn't very good---if pease's offense works and he's able to correct driskel's problems this week, uf should put up huge numbers in the running game and passing.

    Does anyone else think he's covering for Muschamp some on the 4 and 1 call? I don't question that in a bad way because I agree with it and dont necessarily disagree with the call, but Muschamp's philosophy in that situation is we need to pick up a half yard, our o-line should be a strength, they know what we're going to do, go push them back and get that half yard anyhow.

    I don't have an issue with that. Being that the strength of our team is, and has been (even in the Tebow years), DEFENSE, that is a good strategy. This strategy:

    * Keeps the ball in our offense's hands;

    * minimizes mistakes;

    * wears out their defense;

    * keeps our defense fresh.

    I believe this strategy can beat ANY team in the nation. The all out offensive strategy is great for about 90% of the teams out there, but against teams with defenses as athletic as the offensive juggernaut, Plan A tends to fall apart, and there isn't often a Plan B.

    Examples:

    2010 Oregon
    2008 Oklahoma (actually, the entire Big XII that year)
    2001 Florida
    2000 Florida State

    Booms philosophy is pretty simple. He wants his offense to limit possessions of the other team's offense. He uses UF's offense to keep his defense fresh and Muschamp's O is to run clock. He wants TOP to be 35-25 every game. Ground and pound 3-4 yards at a time eats the clock. 16-7, 12-7, 9-3 are fine.

    By contrast Oregon and TAM want to run 80+ offensive plays a game. They want to score TDs and they want to score fast and score often. Orregon could not carer less that UT won the TOP last weekend.

    Muschamp's achilles problems are turnovers and playing from behind. He has little room for error because his O does not score points in bunches. They don't do huury up because they are in a constant state of slow down. Huddling last week down by 2 TDs when they should have been in Go Mode is indicative.
