The Hokies instituted several changes to their offensive scheme this year, but they couldnt execute them consistently.
this is crazy. i don't care what the coaches perception is of what direction we're heading. You just don't regress on offense the way we did throughout the year without having serious serious issues.
So we do well when the defense lines up how WE want them to, but when they line up how THEY want to, we're screwed. Seems like a method for success to me...
He's basically admitting what my eyes already told me; they had no clue how to exploit the looks the defense gave them or how to keep then guessing/on their heels. I noticed a lot of times where teams had figured out our hot reads and sight adjustments to a T and were giving us a certain look just to bait us into throwing a low % pass or running plays we weren't good at.
The past two bowl games were tour de force performances in clueless offensive coaching. I got a kick out of the repeated sweeps to Scales that I don't think ever even got past the LOS. The Sugar Bowl may have been even better; we kept running right into the teeth of their D while making almost no attempt to exploit their lack of speed with rushes to the edge and no attempt to exploit their god awful secondary ( something that every other team has done against them since we played them). My favorite part was we scored on a play where Josh Freaking Oglesby outran their D to the corner and yet the staff didn't think it was to our advantage to exploit the perimeter with David Wilson. Michigan tried to bait us into running up the middle, towards their strength and away from their weaknesses (secondary, lateral speed) and our coaches took the bait.
That, combined with our game against Clemson, where their best DB was injured and replaced by a true freshman and we only threw one pass in his direction, told me all I needed to know about the competency of our staff on that side of the ball.
