Eery- I kinda agree but, I’m thinking his performance, in the bowl game, was more on the coaches than he. I just don’t think our coaching staff has the ability or imagination to adapt to our players strengths.


I agree that it's more on the coaching staff than Chugs. Not so much in getting a game plan for him, but for the fact they recruited him to begin with. I may be wrong, but I don't think he had any other FBS offers?

I like what Dana has been doing and the direction of the program. But the inability to recruit, other through transfers, a decent FBS caliber QB is an obvious issue. Millard, Chugs, Childress all are scrub qbs at the FBS level. That QB from Liberty when we played them a few years back was waaayyy better than those three.


I will completely agree with your opinion on "inability to recruit" however; a good coaching staff adapt to the players strengths and calling plays accordingly. For example - how did VT start a freshman but, made him look like a red shirt senior? I am not even going to answer that. Then there is our coaching staff who has Chugs throw 45 yard passes when he can't hit a mini van at 40. So, lets have him instead throw what he can. Play to his strengths, not his weaknesses. It is pretty simple, while Chugs was in high school he had someones eye and had to have some ability or he wouldn't have been recruited, right? Or is it, he didn't have much in abilities and our coaching staff is way worse than anyone knows.

I'm no football coach but, I can surely see what works and what doesn't, when you find something that works stick with it until it is no longer effective. As I saw it we kept on calling the same plays that did not work but, we continued. This all lies at the feet of our coaches. Matter of fact - this is similar to how our previous coaching staff tried to make Pat White a pocket passer.


Cody Saunders should have been the backup this past season, but unfortunately he had a health issue after spring practice that forced his retirement from football. I really would have liked to see him play. He looked really good in the spring game two years ago before his redshirt year.

I agree, but I also don't want to write it off until we see what happens with the transfer market and what not, we got a couple CB transfers that may play into things (Joshua Norwood, Keith Washington who originally signed for Michigan and Ohio State), and Jayce Rodgers will be a true freshman as well. I think we'll get a better view during the Spring Game, and hopefully these guys work their tails off in the off-season. I still have faith in Gibby, there's times where he's frustrating, but he's gotten more out of our defense in the past few years than I can really remember, let's face it, we had an awful defense last year, and with some experience returning it can be better. If our D-line and linebackers improve and can get pressure on opposing QBs it'll make our CBs job a whole helluva lot easier.

Good point. A good QB having all the time in the world to make a pass is going to find an open man eventually. The shorter the window for a QB to make that pass will greatly help our DBs cover.
