West Virginia Vent Thread – The Key Play


Kansas. The Soccer group of Kansas College rushed for 200 yds and 5+ ypc in opposition to the identical WVU group that had us beneath 2 YPC for almost all of the evening.

Discover close to anybody on Kansas OL that’s over .8500.

Let’s speak Kansas – to begin with, that is Leipold’s second 12 months at Kansas, not his first. It isn’t the identical. Secondly, Leipold is a confirmed head coach who has circled 2 packages. There is a motive I used to be mentioning his title as a possible rent for us in 2020. Frankly, what he is doing is superb, and I do not assume (m)another coaches may pull that off.

Expertise is an issue however our approach is piss-poor (smarter OL minds than me have pointed this out repeatedly in his movie evaluations)

I’ve dropped a number of feedback that mainly quantity to ‘how a lot of those points are expertise/execution vs how the approach is coached’ and the response is basically ‘too soon to tell’: Perhaps that modified after final evening.

I am going to add that, the truth that we’re enjoying 5-7 OL all recreation ought to let you know one thing about our expertise stage. It means the coaches do not belief the two/3 deep. Taking part in each snap results in fatigue which ends up in sloppiness. I am unsure how a lot you are able to do to out coach that.

we proceed to hamstring ourselves with presnap penalties

The penalties are a difficulty. I am unable to argue in opposition to this. I am unsure if it is a fatigue factor or what, and I do not know the way you ‘coach away’ penalties, however one thing has to occur. Determine it out.

Relating to the teaching employees typically… look, I am not saying this employees is the chosen one they usually can do no improper – I am simply saying that they are working with what they received, and that ain’t a lot. Meaning there’s little room for error wherever – on particular groups, on clock administration, on the subject of accidents/fatigue, penalties, and so forth. We employed an inexperienced employees, which suggests there are going to be errors, and since the expertise stage is low, there will not be a method to cowl these errors.

Going again to my unique remark – I wish to see progress (from gamers and coaches) over the course of the season. That is the on-the-field objective for this season. I do know this season will likely be rocky. I anticipate inconsistencies. I am keen to be affected person and see the place we’re on the finish of the season. Then, I wish to see what this employees does with the roster this off season, after they have extra time and no extra yearly scholarship cap.

Realistically, I am searching for a small on the sector enchancment this 12 months, and a fairly large soar in recruiting (together with switch portal) subsequent 12 months. We’ll see what occurs.

Sure, Recruits completely care about successful. Bama, OSU and Clemson are testaments to that.

I am telling you, successful is a distance 4th/fifth of what recruits care about. Bama/OSU/Clemson do not appeal to recruits as a result of they win; they win as a result of they appeal to recruits. They appeal to recruits as a result of they’ll promote these recruits on attending to the NFL.

Taking part in on large levels and in opposition to the very best competitors is a component in parcel to getting probably the most NFL publicity and a spotlight.

Huge stage has nothing to do with attending to the NFL. It is 2022 – if an NFL scout needs tape on you, they’ll get it in 5 minutes. Josh Allen, Trey Lance, and so forth by no means performed on large levels.

I’ll grant you that the ‘iron sharpens iron’ mentality is an element right here – children wish to play in opposition to the very best gamers in apply to allow them to get higher.

That stated, on the finish of the day, you want gamers to purchase right into a imaginative and prescient – Texas may promote that imaginative and prescient at 4-8. UNC may promote that imaginative and prescient at 6-7. Tennessee can promote that imaginative and prescient at . Nebraska managed to get prime 25 lessons regardless of 5 straight 4 win seasons. Dabo offered a imaginative and prescient to Sammy Watkins and Tahj Boyd after a 6-7 season. You gotta promote the imaginative and prescient.

Successful performs an enormous position in bringing Applications the cash… …You may’t ignore that.

Sure… particularly at VT, nobody needs to offer cash once we’re down, simply once we’re up. I get it. Cannot argue right here.
