Coach Herman took the blame for bad play calling as the cause for the UConn loss in 2015. I tend to agree with that assessment. I didn’t see the Lamar game except for the first score. Just couldn’t hold out until the lightning delay was lifted.
If part of the offensive problem is the WRs can’t separate, that shouldn’t matter with Allen because he is supposed very accurate, right? Just drop it in there. 3 of his 4 INTs have been into what looked to me like triple coverage. I agree that a QB who is a threat to run either when the receivers are covered or on a called QB run will open things up across the board. Allen doesn’t seem to have quick enough feet to avoid a hard rush. Maybe his top-end speed is good but he needs quicker feet to side-step a hard rush. Postma’s feet are a quicker and King’s quicker still.
Moreover, CMA has said repeatedly, including today’s presser, that ball security is critical. I don’t see how Allen starts vs Temple if CMA means what he says. Also, if it were up to me, Will Noble would have to sit the first couple of series, as a disciplinary measure. No excuse for so many low snaps, including the roller/turnover.
If Postma starts, who is number 2? Allen or King?
One play I haven’t seen this year is the throw-back to the TE. That play was very successfu the last two years, especially close to the goal line.
