Yeah, bad outside cvg on the blockOn any of the replays did you see any open receivers.? I think he was expecting the receiver who cut his route off to continue straight.
Our protection on the blocked punt was atrocious. The protector on the left actually stepped way from the guy who blocked it giving him a straight line into the punter. That seemed to me to be the play of the game, not the pass at the end of the game. The safety was the result of a call for a slow devloping play when you were backed into the end zone. I suspect SF would like that call back.
I hope this QB stays. He has real potential. This was his first game to play any minutes and he played better than I thought he would
First, Iowa has 12th rated defense in country. Second, the strategy today was to be run based which we did for three quarters until SF got stupid with play calling. Third, no excuse for interception but his limited experience which is on SF contributed to the bad handoff. That said how many games has AM had two or more turnovers. He is in double digits.The guy turned it over twice and threw for less than 200 yards. Get a grip
This!!The worst part is that what do we as fans have to look forward to in the offseason and next year. Usually a team this bad goes in a different direction but here we are knowing this train wreck is coming back for another year. I don't trust Frost to hire 4 staff members that are going to impact this team at all.
I understand why Trev made the decision he did (save money plus appease the ignorant 60 to 70% of the fan base that thinks this is magically going to work out despite 4 years of evidence suggesting otherwise) but as a fan who used to love recruiting, offseason talk, the Spring Game, etc I have no enthusiasm at all because I know what next season is going to look like.
Don’t get me wrong - I’m with you on Smothers. My “questionable recruiting” comment is more a criticism of the fact that the QB room is basically an empty shelf. I think that with the right support and development (will he get it?), Smothers could be a special player…He’s a great recruit, but he’s had horrible development. Not his fault unfortunately. We’ve really let him down.
