“Why can’t I help wondering, if you’re trying to manipulate wins and losses?”

Mike Leach ain’t never played ‘Bama, PAWWWLLL.

If he had, his head would probably explode.

“We’re not getting in the run game as much as we need to.”

Remember how we speculated in the preseason about whether Boom would remain committed to his new hurry up offense if the going got a little tough?  Well, guess what.

In the first half against Texas A&M last week, South Carolina’s running backs averaged 6.8 yards per carry. In the second half, those backs got a combined six carries.

That was not the plan, which is becoming something of a problem for the Gamecocks offense. South Carolina offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon called eight run plays that turned into pass plays because of the team’s new run-pass-option scheme in the second half of that 26-23 loss to the Aggies, head coach Will Muschamp said on his weekly “Carolina Calls” radio show.

“We’re calling runs and we feel like we’re running the football and we end up throwing the football,” Muschamp said…

That reality has convinced Muschamp to tinker with South Carolina’s offense during the open date. The Gamecocks will remove some of the passing options from their RPO scheme for the second half of the season, he said.

“We are looking at having more run-to-run and taking some tags off the RPOs,” he said. “We’re going to still do the RPOs, that’s been very good for us, but sometimes we’re getting too far away from the run game and not sticking with it.”

Either one of two things is happening here — either Bentley is doing a terrible job reading what opposing defenses are giving him on the RPOs, or Boom wants to play more Boom-style offense, regardless of what opposing defenses are giving South Carolina on the RPOs.  I’ll leave it to you to choose which.

Here’s a breakdown by distance of Felipe Franks’ passing work so far this season:

Two things there… he’s not much going deep and Georgia’s ILBs better have their pass coverage game on, because they’re about to be inundated with short and underneath stuff.

The logic is impeccable.

Would this be the most Second Chance U move, or the most Second Chance U move ever?
