I think Banks’ regressions in making reads in the option packages and in the pocket is making the OL look worse than it is. A good deal worse. I don’t know what Brantley would have done vs. Wake but I think he’d have beaten UAB by more than one score.


I strongly agree.

Thanks. This is more the fault of the coaches, one of whom needs replacing for many reasons.

Agree also. If Brantley were given a fair shot, he would be our starter and we beat both WF and UAB provided the staff let Brantley play his game.

I hesitated to include the OL because of a similar thought. While indecision is a big problem (and one not easily correctable) it’s hard to tell if one position looks bad because of the other. Since I have previously stated that a QB that understands the principles of the offense would make the offense look more fluid, that would indicate the OL isn’t as big of a problem it once was. In run plays, however, the OL does have to do a better job opening lanes to run, but in pass plays, Banks’ indecision and subsequent holding of the ball too long makes the OL look bad as blocks start to break down.
