Would be a nice analysis video for sure. I get you need bread and butter.
1st pick..Defender runs into wiggins PI at 15 secs..JT was open in the flat also if 15 waits a bit longer..actually should’ve seen the man coverage pre snap

2nd pick was at 1:36 tight window. Should’ve been caught. Man v man co

3rd pick once again man coverage with a robber that jarren did not account for in the middle..then off the play fake cam was on pass pro which frees up his man to either delay blitz or sit back in a zone..the defender stays back..jarren tryna to hit Mallory on a man v man situation but did not account for those free defenders inside..that ball should’ve never been thrown

that last one was the only bad decision jarren made out of the 3 picks

We've been abusing that play for years. FIU was the first team to smartly have a plan in place at the outset. Wisconsin in the first meeting adjusted after the first quarter.

Enos at least varies when he'll use it, far more than Richt did.

You get the run game open, then the set of plays you can off of that are endless. The flats open, the boundary corner must be good in one v one as the FS steps up. The Ss has to be committed to the box..the thing that play should never be a negative. Meaningful if the QB turns the ball over it’s on him because it’s a read. He can always hand it off if that player he’s reading doesn’t commit to his run gap

We've been getting a lot of man coverage lately. RPO's are designed to attack zone defenders. Man coverage is an RPO killer, particular if your WR's can't get any separation.

I'm not Eno's biggest fan, but to be fair our WR's simply aren't very good. When Duke and FIU can say "fvck you, try me!" and man up your WR's every play, then that's a bad sign.

Shallow crossers/mesh.
Stack/bunch sets.
Deep outs from the slot.
Slot fades.
Back shoulder throws.

All of those are good concepts against man, but some of those concepts require time in the pocket, which we don't have.

When you have success with certain plays, you better be ready to build off that. Defenses will adjust, as FIU’s did after UL.

I haven’t really seen Enos build off success this year, part of which could be the lack of success to build off of, but that’s a whole other issue.

Could have shown the same formation we normally run RPO out of and do PA instead with a slant and go (Sluggo). Just one of many ways to further develop the offense.
Just straight shotgun play action with quick breaking routes, both inside and out. Curls, outs, drags, crosses.

He put all his eggs in the deep drop under center playaction. When it failed, he couldn’t go to much anything else.

That three step drop from under center we hit Pope with against IF is something else we should have built on.

Details are slipping out. The guys who have access to inside information warned us.

This staph is terrible and not developing this team well, mentally or technically.
