Give me just a little more time…

Jeb Blazevich, being obvious:

Blazevich was asked how he’d seen Eason adjust as he tries to learn how to run an offense at the college level.

“It’s tough going into the season because every week, it’s not like we have a new offense, but every week is a special gameplan for that (game). So I think he’s getting better at that,” Blazevich said. “It obviously would benefit us more if we had to work like camp on the same stuff over and over again. But I think he’s adjusting really well and I think he’s doing a great job.”  [Emphasis added.]

It’s college football.  It’s not rocket science.  A true freshman quarterback needs reps.  A true freshman quarterback’s receivers need for their true freshman quarterback to get reps.

In that regard (and, sure, the circumstances of the day didn’t help), Saturday’s offensive game plan left a lot to be desired.

    Jeebus! Enough already. It was a win for goodness sake. Time to put the fucking Nicholls game behind us and look to mizzou. That is all.


    • So, you think Eason’s preparation is complete?

        We won the game, so I’ll refer back to Blazevich: “I think he’s adjusting really well and I think he’s doing a great job.”


        • I’ll refer back to his coaches, who benched him for the last two series of the win.

            Well, FWIT I thought putting Eason into the end of game situation would have been a bad idea. What if he threw an INT or fumbled the game away? A failure like that could have ruined the kid. You have to be conscious of his development for the future of the team. Putting Lambert in to close out the game (and Lambert DID throw a strike on 3rd and 7 for the first down that iced the game–he should get credit for that) was actually a good decision by Smart IMHO.

    Eason needs every rep with first team. He’s clearly the best QB on the team, based on nothing but the fact that the offense moves better with him in the game. What else is there? Once he’s at that point, you start him permanently. If that means we have to throw more until he’s better at making adjustments at the line of scrimmage that benefit of the run game, thats what we do if that scores us more points. If that means we’re in shotgun until he’s better at taking snaps under center and running play action, we do that.
