Default Was this the reason our offense struggled so much against UF?

Thinking about it, maybe we struggled so much because Lawing knew everything that we were going to do. He has practiced against our offense everyday for years. He had to have a good idea of what we were lining up to do every down. I know that Shaw was off a bit, but maybe they had a big advantage with Lawing knowing what was coming.

Could be partially the reason, but we can disguise our play calls, and things change year to year depending on who is playing and starting on offense. So it shouldn't have been much of the problem. Maybe the real reason is Florida's Defense is pretty good, and our offense has been in somewhat of a slump these last 3 weeks.

The reason was that UF has an elite defense period.

If you watched us play at all, you can figure out what we are doing. So I doubt Lawing gave that much advantage. We had many plays there but Shaw missed the throws.

(2) Reasons

(A) Florida is big, fast and physical on defense.. best defense we have seen this year
(B) Shaw and Davis are no where near 100%... Shaw cant run nearly as well since hurting his knee, and Davis is banged up...

'Off a bit'?? Mac, when did you become so PC? We all know some of his passes came to earth in another time zone last nite.

Why?? Don't pretend to have a clue, but I know what my lyin' eyes saw.

Just hope CS, SOS & staff can get CS back to mid-season form to close out the year.

Default Re: Was this the reason our offense struggled so much against UF?

It's not like Florida completely shut us down. We actually finished 9 of our 10 drives inside Florida territory. But once a team gets enters the red zone, they must be more physical. We've turned into a bunch of creampuffs recently. When was the last time we even rushed for a touchdown? All this complaints about "Shaw missed some passes" are missing the point and just another symptom of our softness.

Default Re: Was this the reason our offense struggled so much against UF?

Florida is a defensive team reminds me of how we played not too long ago had a defense to give us a chance but the Offense still couldn't do anything with it and made our D tired and look much worse than they were.

We didn't call the best plays against them. I think we should have tried gashing them with inside runs more. They were pretty soft without Easley in there.

Default Re: Was this the reason our offense struggled so much against UF?

I think we struggled b/c Shaw was inaccurate. Oh and Florida still has a ton of talent on defense. They are fast and physical. I feel like we matched their physicality for most of the game. Also, our oline didn't have their best game run blocking. They were good, not great. A bit better execution and SC would have put up 34 on UF.

Thought the playcalling was fine, although I would have liked to see some diversity in the formations. Make UF think a bit more to slow them down some.

Default Re: Was this the reason our offense struggled so much against UF?

Four big plays in the passing game and we would've put thirty on the board.

1. Byrd down the sideline behind hardgreaves.
2. Ellington behind the defense at the goal line.
3. Carson down the left sideline on the wheel route.

All three overthrown.

4. Say what you wish. Shaq Roland got "jobbed" on the td catch. Great throw on that.
