The single biggest problem with this team is that we cannot sustain a drive on offense. 

Our only effective play seems to be "Go Deep!"

It worked ok for FSU, Cuse and WVU.

Not so much for Cincy, Pitt or Rutgers

Against wvu we had some sustained drives in the second half.  I thought we were learning how to do that.  But you are right.  Take away the long ball and force a ten play drive and chances are we won't be able to do it.

I'm starting to think Gregory was better than Canales. I bet he is laughing his ass off at us right now.

Canales = Gregory

No atempt to get a running game going tonight. One screen pass to Wilson and it gained 37 yards but, never to be used again. One quick slant to Love for 40 yards but, never to be used again. Not one single play action either.

Canales does know that you're allowed to run the same play as many times as you want right? Of course he does, BJ 5 step drop and then try to bomb it! Our coaching staff has no gameplan and fails to make ANY adjustments to the opponents.

Ford had 9 carries and Mo had 4. Compare that to Martinek who had 25 for 100+yards.

Our offensive line broke down badly and early.  There was never a rhythm from the get go, therefore, the players looked confused and went through the motions the rest of the way.

I am not a fan of deferring after winning the coin flip...especially with a young and fiery QB such as Daniels.  Get him in a rhythm with his offense quickly, before he has to play catch up.

Well considering Carlton Mitchell was out for this game, Canalase can't use his go-to "have B.J scramble and heave a bomb to Mitchell down the sideline" play.

The rest of his playbook looks like this:

Yes, he would be laughing at US, the posters that wanted him fired.

Yep, Carlton Mitchell is our big play offense so far this season. At least until we can find a way to get Lindsey Lamar the ball in space. The blitz and QB spy killed BJ and our offense tonight.

Our coaches still have no idea how to use Lamar. Here's a tip guys, go to youtube.com and watch all 8min of Lamar's highlights and emulate! The coach at Hillbourogh knew that you have to get him in space, throw screens, put him in the slot, and pitch the ball to him out of the backfeild but, our D1 coaches just can't seem to figure it out......laughable!

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
