I can provide the post if anyone doesn't believe. Al Harris, Jr. is a 160 lb true freshman playing one of the most difficult positions in college football. Believe me aTm won't be the only team to roast him this year.

But why....WHY...don't we have better corners on this team?? It's the coaches fault!!! We need a relentless recruiter and we will be in 10 and 11 win seasons of mediocrity until a change is made. I love SOS....he is a legend and he deserves to stay as long as he wants. But he is old hat, he got his at FLA and is not hungry. PLAIN AND SIMPLE
so you think 10-11 wins a season in the toughest conference in the country is mediocre.....what a joke....

Mehhhhh standard set up for zone be it cover 3 or cover four is 7 yards off 1 yard in....whoever's fault it is it needs to be corrected. We should also be taking a three step drop read which I see none of our corners doing.

I agree but the reason they are missing the tackles is because every tackle is an open-field tackle when you're playing that soft of a coverage, which is inherently harder to make since the receiver can jump and catch the ball with no fear of being hit, land and plant his feet, and then still have time to maneuver by the defender.

Default Re: Misconceptions about coverages

I would rather our DBs get beat trying to cover receivers than get beat not covering them.

If we tried a tighter press coverage and they still gotta all those yards at least it would look like we were trying to stop them. They continually ran screens and quick passes leaving our guys trying to make open field tackles and looking stupid.

If we don't tighten up and press down on the receivers ECU will do the same thing A&M did.

The only good thing about us looking so inept in pass coverage is that maybe UGA will come in trying to throw the ball around a lot and we won't get Todd Gurley cleat marks up our chest like Clemson.
