I think we will be fine at WR. Maybe we can get a few of the younger players that have a little more height out there.

I think that is false.

From another post I made:

We beat ourselves against LSU. An example: Players not running the Mesh concept properly. Early in the game, USC appeared to attempt to run the "Mesh" concept. The two "meshers" collided at the mesh point rather than crossing at different depths, and after the collision, one of the receivers kept on running even though LSU was in zone coverage; against zone coverage, you are supposed to settle in the void between zones after crossing with the other mesher. That's a combined 3 errors on 1 play...That should not be happening 6 games into the season. Multiply that by all the other plays that are probably not being executed properly, and one can begin to understand why we lose 2-3 games every season under Spurrier not because the opponent was better, but because we defeated ourselves.

We also beat ourselves against Florida. We basically handed the game to them. In addition to the turnovers in that game, we also had receivers colliding with each other again, just like the week before. This was 8 games into the season...

It's not as if LSU and Florida played in the national championship. Had we been executing at a high level, we could have defeated both teams by double digits.

I appreciate everything Coach Spurrier and his staff has done to get the program to where it is.

That said, this mediocre execution will continue to cost our team until we have the talent to overcome it. And even then we will still probably have 1-2 games a year where we just hand the game to the opponent.

I don't know if Spurrier's offense is too complex, and/or or if he and the rest of the coaching staff are not effective teachers, but unless the execution improves, we will not see an SEC title, and we most certainly will not see a national title.

If we could get South Carolina's offense to execute at the level the service academies historically have with their offenses, we would go undefeated every year.

Let me emphasize I am not saying Spurrier should run the triple option. What I am saying is that perhaps he needs to simplify his offense and focus on a core group of plays so that the players can get really good at running those instead of them being mediocre at running a lot of plays.

Another way that offensive execution could potentially be improved is by keeping receivers in the same spot instead of moving them all over the place.

Look at the Colts during Peyton Manning's glory years there. Reggie Wayne always lined up in the same spot. Marvin Harrison always lined up in the same spot. By doing this, they got more reps with their routes. Running a post route on the left side of the field is different from running a post route on the right side of the field.

It was clear in the LSU and Florida games that the receivers need more practice running their routes. Again, some of that may be attributed to Spurrier's offense being too complex. More plays means less practice reps per concept.

The Colts are not the only team to keep receivers at one spot. The Air Raid teams over the years have kept receivers in one spot.

I understand we are facing SEC defenses, but what good is fooling the defense if you cannot take advantage of the edge you have just gained by fooling them? I think sometimes Spurrier just gets a kick out of trying to outsmart the defense and/or show everyone how smart he is.

I know I am probably going to get flamed for this post.

How dare I question almighty Steve Spurrier.

Default Re: Receivers?

I think we have a nice mesh of talent. Some guys don't have the game time others do but they will get there. Bryd is gonna get better, Ellington finally started coming into the go to guy. Nick Jones is getting better and with some games under his belt he'll have more confidence. Then you look at some other guys who just need chances to get out there. Shaq Roland and Shamiere Jeffery need to step up and get some games under their belts. Then KJ Brent still played well the few games he saw. Kwinton Smith is big and will take some molding. Plus you have to add in Buster Anderson and Jarrell Adams who both played outstanding this past year and will continue to improve.

IMO I think Dylan should be the starter, and let Connor come in the game, run some read option plays, and then he is still a threat to throw it around. I think Dylan has the better arm and is more confident to let it loose. Recievers will have an easier time catching it when its throw at them with more accuracy. Connor is a great quarterback but Dylans arm is what has been missing at USC for a long time.

Davis and Carson will do fine running the ball and the best way for them to get good space is early accurate passing. Using all the Talent Spurrier has is gonna be the biggest challenge of this up coming year
