Will Hall is a better Coach than Fritz

Exponentially better in multiple phases: Focus, Details, Adjustments, and Motivation.

If Hall doesn’t leave this year, we lose to USM by 21+ next year.

Yes. Fritz is vastly overrated.

We will never do better than 6-6 under Fritz. It's year 7. Losing this one is inexcusable.

I'm open to the possibility that it isn't possible to do better than .500 at Tulane in this era

I think Svoboda was channeling the Kansas State OC tonight.. his play calling was mind boggling and not in a good way

I’m not trying to entirely negate will hall appreciation, but it’s not like USM looked a quarter to good tonight. Heck, they were lucky to be in that game let alone win it. This is much more on us IMO. inexcusable. Embarrassing. Typical.

This 100%

We lost by 3, and we missed a simple FG and had another one blocked. They didn’t win this game. We fell apart and had no aggressive plan to put them away when we could. Also our corners forgot they can also try to take passes away.

Coach Hall has done miracles in his short time at USM. I am happy for him. Great guy and can really coach.

Let’s be honest, what advantage in coaching will we have the rest of the year? Maybe one. It’s up for debate.

I agree. They took advantage of our mistakes and had we played to win instead of playing not to lose, we win that game going away. If we made them drive the length of the field all game they don’t score more than 20 points.

Ironically, Frank Gore was complaining to me that “these coaches don’t know what they’re doing” when we held them to a FG late in the game.

Whether it's Pratt, Svoboda, or Fritz. The lack of a passing game any better than occasional decent gains was the main thing holding us back from winning by multiple scores last week and kept us from stressing the lead or responding to scores tonight. If they don't figure it out then we will not win more that 6-7 games this year.

If there is any possible silver lining it's perhaps Svoboda can figure this out. Again, so far he is the 4th OC under Frtiz to not be able to throw a passing game on the field when we are down or need to back the defense off.

Lastly Pratt did not give our WRs chances in 1 on 1 situations tonight. He either ate the sack or tucked and ran. We see where that got us. The man is tough, but that doody has to change.

He took those sacks and tucked and ran because our WR's can't get open.

This is a major problem. We have no receivers that can get open without scheming then that way. Without any threat of a downfield attack we are in trouble. The dink and dunk stuff doesn't work in today's game. We need more explosive plays

Is that because of scheme, talent, or both?

...and a blocked punt gives usm 3 pts (which could easily have been 7). Pick six for their defense. We had a lot going against us (admittedly, we created it, but, usm not as good as some may think).

I saw multiple plays when they had 3 yards on DBs in coverage. Pratt completions were to wide open guys.
Pratt didn't throw the ball to 1 on 1 match-ups. He tucked and ran or took s sack.
Compare that to USM. Their QB gave their receivers plenty of 1 on 1 chances. Our dbs knocked some away but they completed som big passes. We actually did this vs umass.

What about that pass in the end zone to Watts right before the block FG? That looked like they could have called PI in that.

I yelled for it at the time. On the replay it looked like good defense. Wouldn’t want that called on me.

I’m starting to wonder if the coaches are losing confidence in Pratt as a passer. As I mentioned last night, he had open receivers but either didn’t see them quick enough or didn’t have time from being pressured. Seemed like a lot of the pressure was from him holding on too long.

I sit in that end zone. It was a clear jersey tug by the defender after he was beat and has to be called.

Some of it is on the play calling. We kept running on 1st and 2nd down with minimal gain putting us in a 3rd long. It’s hard to pass when the defense knows you have to. That goes back to the playing conservatively tight starting with the punt that pinned us deep.

If you think our passing game is lacking, I just posted on the AAC board that USF is the only team that has not thrown a passing TD yet this season.

Well, I guess Willie Fritz is a better coach than the Kansas State coach and an even better coach than the Oklahoma coach.
