A little behind. In the process of moving right now.
QBs had a combined 16 yards rushing on 10 attempts. It’s a scrimmage but will be interesting to see how dominant this DL really is.
The O-Line is my biggest concern because it’s so key to Allen finding receivers and creating running room.
Well guys, we’ll find out real soon if Major Applewhite is a really good head coach or he was just a pretty good offensive coordinator under Judas.
How soon is real soon? Cant tell from year 1. We have a poor oline without a mobile qb. With a stout defense we will probably be 8-4.
Applewhite is not at fault for the previous coaches not properly addressing the oline.
I think you need 4 years to see if he is a truly great coach capable of sustaining a program. You only need a couple weeks to know if he is a Levine.
Why do you guys assume that the O Line coach the last 2 years was any good !!
I think he sucked. We regressed over the 2 year period.
Shaggy. Who do you think the starter will be? Kyle has apparently been less than stellar but,
from everything I am reading king is pushing Allen for starter. It seems that as our qb play goes so does this season.
The Oline issue is probably borne by having a new coach every year or 2 years. I am sure Applewhite picked up on some of the schemes to mask Oline issues from Herman.
I don’t really put expectations on who starts before the season. The coaches know better than the rest of us so I support whichever player they start and if that player doesn’t do the job, I blame the coaches and not the players. It’s why I go on defense on posts about individuals or comments about the offensive line. These kids aren’t paid a million dollars. They get the same benefits whether they start or not so they work their butts off hard enough to get the starting job, I respect them. If they don’t seem like they are the best one for the job, that’s on the coaches. Especially when coaches do stuff like not decide on a starter like Briles did with Case and Blake.
Anyone else notice he tried to refer to Kyle Postma and Kyle Allen as just Kyle? Guess he likes being on a first name basis with his players.
I could listen to folks talk about EO all day. Special player and talent. Hope he gets consideration for captain next year despite not being a senior.
In the Cougars’ second closed scrimmage, Applewhite said all three did things well. Postma led a 13-play scoring drive, while Allen had a 15-play drive stall.
I don’t think it is good for the morale of the team to let’s this linger past this upcoming Monday. I am not a big time CFB coach though…
