So everyone here going "run, run, run"....and usa knows it. We get nothing - loss yards and no first down. Plenty of coaches on this board.
The running calls that he drew up on 2nd and 3rd down were AWFUL designs in that situation. We are playing a Sun Belt team. Nothing slow developing or misdirection. We can dominate the line of scrimmage and should.

Look at the play we ran. We have 2 great backs and the QB has the ball in his hands. We were all saying run but it goes without saying with the correct play call.

No we didn't run it...we basically took the snap twice & stood there....big difference
There were two handoffs.

I agree, but you guys need to be more specific. Run, run, run. But no one saw any of that happening.

We should not have to tell him don't run a read option when you need a 1st down to ice it.

Perhaps we should have thrown the ball. USA wouldn't have expected it. Anyway, we won. Gotta get in some quality practice.

In hindsight, I am fine with Troy D. scheduling this game. :-D

Get healthy and start preparing for the Option against a Navy team that will have a HUGE chip on their shoulder after what happened to them last week against BYU.

We hadn't dominated all game. Not until 3rd quarter did we wake up.

Watch the replay at 3AM. Every time we ran it between the tackles, without trying for cute misdirection, we were dominating the line of scrimmage. We killed our own drives early by passing on 1st and 2nd down and taking the run game off schedule.

It'snot trolling, dude. No one here satisfied. Screaming all across board to run, we call run play and everyone groans.

Well.... it appears that during the entire game, these 'fans' ere trolling the coaches. Not happy when we pass....not happy when we run. Oh wait, we didn't run the right run play. Duh!

I'll have to see if I can find a replay (maybe in Spanish). I know if we don't try to pass, the run will never work. I agree with "why pass on 1st down", but, also, that's a down where the defense truly doesn't know what you may do, thus, you give the QB a better chance (theoretically) to complete passes - no expected pass rush. We've got to give Howard some easy throws to build confidence. He had a couple of nice back-to-back throws in 4th Q that lead to a TD. (receivers were responsible for a few drops out there)
