About that crappy o-line…

Kirby said this week that they did very well in pass protection against Arkansas, and guess what?

They did.

    It’s almost like when you have a QB who understands the offense, sees the field, finds the open receivers, and throws the ball on time in this offense, there’s not a lot of chances to get rushed.

    And when you have a QB who doesn’t understand the offense, doesn’t see the field, can’t find open receivers who are out there open, and holds the ball too long in this offense, he’s gonna get rushed.

    Almost like this is exactly the design of the offense. Quick reads, open receivers, throw the ball on time. All those things happening so quickly the defense can’t get a proper rush.

    Anyone expecting Mathis to get serious playing time this week are just crazy to me.

      I’m in agreement. Hard to believe Mathis sees the field at all barring a blowout (by either side) and he goes in for garbage time.

      New line coach, new players, and a new OC. There will be growing pains but the difference between the two halves of play this past weekend was massive. I’d expect the starting lineup of O-lineman to be settled by now and will look different from the first half of last week that is for sure.

    Well they did for Stetson. Corch may be right – QB may have a function in the play of the line. But, it’s also reasonable to think that Luke huddled with them at the half, made some adjustments, realigned personnel, just chewed them out, etc. Too small a sample size to draw any definitive conclusions.

    So Trask was pressured that much and still had 400+ yards and 6 TDs? I thought the book on him was to pressure him.

      I think it’s just cause his line sucked. Not really designed blitz packages.


    • The same can be said for Corral. Third and Grantham brought the house and it didn’t keep Ole Miss O from rolling. I’m not seeing how we could be missing Cox, either.

      There was a bogus roughing call against Ole Miss in the 4th that could’ve turned that game on its ear, IMO.

      Ole Piss has truly awful players on the backend of that D. I’d not even consider them SEC caliber athletes.

      No way Pitts has 4 TDs and 200+ yards receiving in annohter game from here on out. The caliber of athletes of opposing defenses improves tremendously for the rest of the UF schedule.

    Amazing what a quick release does to make a ol look good.

    Yeah, I think the plug is pulled on the Dwan Mathis experiment. I was really pulling for the guy, especially after Fields left. I just don’t get what the staff seen in practice from Mathis to give him the start last Saturday. Maybe Kirby was playing 6D chess against us all.

    Combination of what some said above (quick release, knowing offense & decision making) & defense tiring down.

    “Never as good as it seems or as bad as it seems”

    We’ll soon find out, as I believe he will start (Bennett).


    • Corch Irvin Meyers, New USC Corch (2021)

      Well, it’s either Bennett or Daniels. The only logical choices.

      So I fully expect to see Mathis out there.

    Mailman seems to know the deal, at the current level anyway. I am pulling for him though. Comp ratchets up quickly…..
