I agree. I was thinking we’re not as aggressive on blitzes as in the past but maybe we are using delayed blitzes?
The O needs to get much better or we will lose some games. SMU leads the conference in sacks with 21. They got to Ward a bunch last year, 7 times, I think.
USF has 14 INTs with 2 DBs with 3 and 1 with 2.
All of that spells trouble for our Offense. Using King will help but I really think we should swap him and Postma at QB and WR. With both on the field and the other DC not knowing who will be behind center could allow us to catch opponents in the wrong set.
Defensively, we still miss too many tackles. I don’t know what coaches do the practice after the game for guys who missed assignments, whiffed on tackles like they had their eyes shut, and so forth. There should be hell to pay in my opinion. Intense remedial physical training, conditioning drills, an hour tackling your teammates and so on.
I have played for coaches who would bench kids for a series for whiffing on a tackle.
