3 sacks and a hold in 3 series. O-line needs to wake up.

This is going to be another +5 in the turnover battle, 17+ point loss.

We were always coached to "catch it if you can, but it's better to knock it down than to let the receiver catch it, so don't take unnecessary chances."

They were thrown literally right to our guy, who was certainly trying to catch each one

Pratt is going to get killed if we keep putting him in 3rd and longs.

Put the defense right back out there. No doubt SMU will score on this drive now.

That's the opposite of a tip drill.

That holding call could potentially turn this into a curb stomping in the making

Only think that could really help is SMU looks to have a bit of Will Hall syndrome - getting cute with play calling instead of just keeping it simple with what works.

How much have we regressed on both the DL, the OL, LB, Secondary, and WR. Hell, I named the whole damn team. WF get this team to play aggressive football. Look like girls.

Throw the ball 50 times. And throw downfield. Be aggressive.

Get pressure on defense. Play aggressive.

Not sure if the coaches know this...

However, it appears we don’t have much depth at QB. Let’s try and keep #7 alive.

1 yard rushing so far. Just nowhere for the backs to go. Met at the line of scrimmage if not sooner.

Agreed. Pratt is the real deal. Give him time and let’s make some big plays. We will need a ton of points to pull off an upset.

Our game plan on both sides of the ball looks the same every damn week. Wake these coaches up.
