Who’s judging him? The pick 6 was a game killer. A 14 point turnaround. 1st and 2 for a touchdown and we pass after running it down the field for the most part? Shouldn’t have been an option for him. Hand it off or run. Penalties a killer. Fumbles a killer.
3rd and 20 and we run. With 5 minutes left we punt?
Then, we burn the last time out before 1st down?
I finally watched the taped game tonight, Had to get some things done before the snow flies here.
Not sure if Gabriel would have affected the game more than the freshman. I thought our defense played both QB’s quite well. There was some ticky tack PI’s that hurt, and especially the missed PI when Rex was nailed before the ball got there.
I will give credit for the O-line today, for the most part they played fundamentally far better than all the previous games.
A couple of the fumbles were caused because of missed blocks, but Ratzlaff needs to be a bit more careful with the ball.
What’s up with the snapped ball when Ratzlaff was still looking at the receiver being set? announcers said that the OU players were clapping their hands.
This is the type of game that I know our guys competed, losing sucked, but I am proud that these guys gave a 100% today.
First down and goal at the 2 you at least run it once or twice up the gut. If you you gain a little on first down run it up the gut again on 2nd down. If you lose yardage on 1st down think about running it wide. It is very hard to get guys open that close to the end zone. If you throw it should be play action with a fake hand off for a dive play and then a toss to a wide open receiver or throw it away. At worst they should have gotten a field goal if the first 3 plays go nowhere or they lose yardage.
One of the announcers for the game said that when they were talking to ARod, it was mentioned that Arod had changed the scheme for the Lineman. What they were asked to do was more complex and timing. ARod said he simplified the scheme of what the lineman needed to do to block. At least that is the jist I took from the comment.
Added to that, Robbins is finally 100% healthy, that made for a good running game.
