I truly hope our coaches have been and "are currently" watching these bowl games and seeing what an innovative offense and aggressive defense can produce and be willing to incorporate some of it! I HATE at least one of the teams that I am talking about but it really is fun to watch how they play on both sides of the ball. And I think all of you would agree if your honest. The schemes that they run help make their players better than they really are (make average players good and good players really good).
Yeah, all those years of working in their chosen profession are worthless, according to you.
I love the Ole Miss schemes. They were among the best in the nation in sacks, 7th. And tackles for a loss, 14th I think. And according to some they don't have much talent on the D-line. They are a very well coached football team.
OM schemes on both sides are more similar to what we should have run vs. what we did run. They do a much better job of exploiting matchups and forcing the action on defense. The strange thing is Wommack's schemes have always had more trouble stopping the run than the pass, but very few teams went run-heavy on them this year.
It's not worthless. So I guess you were happy with our schemes on both sides of the ball this year?? Talent does play a big part, but you can't tell me that Ole Miss has more talent than us, yet they skull drug us and played the teams that they lost to a hell of a lot closer than we did. Why?? Well if it wasn't the talent that they had then it was obviously coaching and scheming. Texas A&M and Ole Miss both could have scored 55+ if they wanted to, and offensively the last 6 games were boring to watch. If you don't have the talent, then coaching and scheming is what can narrow the gap with the upper tier schools.
Texas hung 66 on them, ran for something like 330 yards. Why we kept trying to stand in the pocket and throw was beyond me. Even I thought the key to whipping them bad was to run the ball. For the most part we did the same thing in the Gator Bowl. More running (which worked) but pocket passing with nothing in between. I do agree with you guys that our offense was about as interesting as a dull knife.
