Default Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

Let's face it, since our 52-7 win over Arkansas the offense hasn't looked good.
We are averaging 25 points.
But before Arkansas we were averaging 31.

Part of that is the increase in competition and playing teams with older, more experienced defenses in Florida, Miss. State, Mizzou and Tennessee (all are talented and experienced).

Also, I think Connor's injury is limiting what he can do with his feet...

Granted, we are only off a TD a game right now over the last four games.
But it is concerning that we are 15 of 58 on third down over those games (25.8% conversion rate).
In the games prior to Arkansas, we were 36 of 69 on third down (52% conversion).

That is our biggest problem. Over the past four games we have been poor on third down (again nothing we didn't know).
But to me, that number is jarring to digress that much on third down.

FYI...Arkansas we were 9 of 16.
For the year, 41.9%.

So, I guess the question is...can the Coastal game be a game where we start getting our third down swagger back?
Or, will it be like those Wofford games where we just try to survive a good Coastal Carolina team and get to the next game?

Default Re: Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

We are having less success on 1st & 2nd down now which is making our 3rd downs longer. Which makes the % drop. I think our run plays are pretty predictable for the most part, and that is making it easier for D coordinators to scheme against us.

Default Re: Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

Our third down % of conversions is a concerning issue. Staying on the field is a key to beating Clemson IMO.

I have no clue how good coastal really is so I have no idea if we score 60 what it really means for our offense but I would be happy to see it happen.

Connor's injury is limiting our play calling.

Go watch tape of the before and after. Without his running threat our playbook isn't as diverse.

In all seriousness, I would be surprised to see Pharoh Cooper play some wild cat this weekend.

Probably not a lot of Davis... a lot of Shon more than likely.

Default Re: Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

Spurrier has already said that Davis may not even dress this weekend. Whether we struggle or not, I think this is a smart decision. We need a healthy Davis for Clemson. The key to that game is going to punch them in the mouth. Davis will have something to prove that game too.

Default Re: Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

Unfortunately, I don't think what ever success we have against CC will carry over to klimtek. I don't expect their OL or DL to give us much of a problem. Not saying we won't have success against klim, I just don't think it will be attributed to the cc game.

What we need more than anything is a healthier Shaw and Davis and some new wrinkles in the playbook. I'd like to see us come out firing and playing like we played in the 4th quarter at Mizzou from now on, this week and next.

We looked good vs. uf when Shaw was rolling to his right and having the receiver come to him. let's do it more often. Nothing better to spread the field than some big plays. Busta, Bruce, Roland, NJ and Byrd. we have the skill players.

I'm excited about Carson, he's looking pretty good. With a chance to start a get the bulk of the carries, he could do something special, but again, we need MD28 & Shaw healthy for the last game.

Default Re: Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

I agree with everyone saying more Thompson and Carson this week.
We have to rest up Connor and MD28 for next week and a possible SEC Title game.

We should be able beat Coastal with our backup QB and RB (and maybe Brandon Wilds will be able to go as well and get him some carries before the Clemson game).

I hope we let Connor play maybe the first quarter, then let DT go the rest of the way.

I know if the Shon Carson that played against Florida shows up, he could have a very nice day.

i think clemson has shown us over the last few seasons that beating the hell out of inferior opponents each week doesn't make you a good team.

I say let Connor lead the first series, after that it's Dylan and Noso all the way.

This isn't going to be much of a game.

As I've said in other threads, Coastal is going to be focused on the FCS Playoffs. They don't need this game at all, and they will probably be resting starters as well.

Our offense should be able to do whatever it needs to do in this game.

Josh Kendall tweeted a stat the other day about Coastal playing BCS schools.

In last 10 years, Coastal Carolina has played four BCS conference schools and lost by a combined score of 205-13.

This game will be a blowout.

I really hope this game is a blowout. I would like to see some of the guys who haven't seen the field much get some playing time, like:

Rainey
Brent
Whitehurst
J. Smith
K. Smith
Fuller
Walton
Bryant
McWilliams
Martin (if healthy)

etc

Default Re: Will Coastal Carolina be the game our O gets back on track?

I just looked at their depth chart. They are big on the oline at guard for sure. Their dline is the smallest we have seen all year by a long shot.

If we cannot run the ball on them it will be surprising.

Their wideouts have good size also. At least two of them. 6-2 and 6-3 the rest are small.
