Default One Missing Problem

I love Steve Spurrier just as much as the next guy. But does noone see a problem with him taking his foot off the gas pedal in the SECOND QUARTER against vanderbilt. I mean there is no doubt he was happy with the lead and decided that he would just hold onto it. We never blow teams out because he does that. He did it last year against Georgia. He did it against UNC. In fact, its almost like clock work, get a big lead, then we sit on it and let the other team get back into it. does noone else see a problem with the way HBC does this every game? if its not close, he just packs it in.

Most coaches like to do this especially early in the year. I know it's frustrating when the other team closes the gap but there is no point exposing too much of the playbook when you don't have to.

Because Spurrier "acts like he's been there before", unlike some schools "out West".

Default Re: One Missing Problem

I don't undestand this "taking the foot off the pedal".

Do we have plays that we run that are designed to fail? Do we have the fumble play? The 3 and out plays?

Our players lost focus, and Vandy took advantage. That is not coaching per se, that is mindset of our players. Coaches call plays and players execute. This says as much about our players as our coaches.

There was no "taking the foot off the gas pedal." All the energy left the building at halftime and the players relized it and now we see what happened.

i dont think there was ever a point in the first half where the foot came off the pedal. we had the interception by dylan on a deep out, and then the nick jones incompletion/fumble and then the drive stalled after the 6 minute review.

only point where it looked like the playcalling changed was after the legree interception.
