Genius at work

Arkansas held Josh Dobbs to seven yards rushing on seven carries.  Want to know how?

“Some of the things was Arkansas with their different (looks), being safety-activated, the way they were, the way they played their linebackers,” Jones said. “We did have some designed runs called for him, and then a lot of them were run-pass options, like we do every week. But there were some different nuances in the game plan.

“A lot of it dictates it on the looks that (Dobbs) sees, whether it’s front, whether it’s coverage, whether it’s alignment of the linebackers.”

“Safety-activated”?  I have no idea what that gobbledygook is supposed to mean.  Hopefully, Pruitt is studying the game tape to decipher it.

    What a dickweed, seriously. Losing to him would be like losing to Ron Zook all over again.

    “Maybe if I drop some technical terms, I’ll sound like an expert, and then people will forget what’s happening on the field.”

    Butch is blaming his players. This is not going to end well for him.

    Dobbs saves himself for bigger games. Hasn’t had a tanker yet. Looked good on Okie and Gators. Dude has some wheels.

    Butch ha a “safety-activated” smart-watch

    Safety-Activated? Do they have power rings they touch together before every play to activate their safety powers?

    My favorite part of his Monday conference was how he said he was takin’ names. He said that in tough times you find out who’s for ya and who’s not. And ya put that in your back pocket for later. He said this with a little smirk. Urnge folk are on notice. Butch is takin’ names.

    Then this tweet from Wes Rucker:
    “That was @SethStokesTSE who asked Butch the question about the fight rumor. Obviously his name just went in Butch’s back pocket…”

    Trouble with that is what happens when you show Dobbs a presnap look, then shift late? Then you can’t be ‘safety activated’ or reading linebackers, now can you?


  10. There are brick layers and brick masons. Big difference between the two.

    We seem to have perfected “Safety Agitated”…the flapping of arms and running away from streaking receivers.
