Penn State Week Practice: Thursday Zoom Presser With Coach Frost

Red Reign

Monday Presser with selected players at 11:30 AM CDT and Coach Frost at 12:30 PM
 

What I hope to hear at the presser in one hour:



Things I Know:



-Scott’s offense needs a high percentage passer.

Much of his passing attack is actually a “running game” where the short passes are long hand offs.

These then must be completed 90+ percent of the time for the offense to stay ahead of the chains.

AM 2020: 57% passing
2019:59%
2018:65%


-Scott’s offense needs “speed” to be successful, but this speed comes in two forms:

1. Tempo: At UCF, Scott effectively used tempo to keep the opponent off balance and to keep them from substituting. This can and will create favorable mismatches.

At DONU this has rarely happened under Martinez for reasons unknown to me, but represents a critically lost weapon when AM is the QB.

Can this be added with Luke at QB, Logan at QB, 2020 is the year to find out because 2020 is the year that does not count against playing time.



2. Player Speed: Chunk plays have been critically absent compared to Scott’s UCF days.

If DONU is to score 30 points per game then chunks plays need to at least double per game from there current level.

But compared to most fan expectations, chunk plays are not deep throws to Omar, in Scotts offense they should come in large part from short to medium throws to fast players, even from wide receiver screens to players such as Nance, Fleming or Brown who can take it to the house where Liewer can not.

Another advantage that Luke brings is his superior speed. Where Am is a good running QB, Luke is a threat to take it to the house, one of the few that DONU has, so he must be one the field, touching the ball as much as is possible.





Things I don’t know:



-We saw the beginnings of the freshman speed on field at NU, with some favorable first impressions.

-I am sure I heard Scott say that the QB position would be “won or lost on the field not in practice”

Well I don’t know that Luke won it with his performance in Evanston. As many have said, no points were scored despite the impressive drives he lead in minimal playing time.

But I do know that AM lost his job when the film is reviewed and the multiple miss reads in the running game, the failure to see the field in the passing game, and then the wholly unacceptable end zone interception by a three year starter are graded out.

Scott has to see that AM has regressed, not developed, and give Luke the week of practice as the starter and the start against PSU to see if Luke can put the needed speed back into Scott’s offense.

tempo? had a hard time calling a play in q3 of game 1.
Yes, it was nice to see from Freshmen catch a ball, and show a burst to get around the corner on a handoff. And better yet a ball thrown where it was supposed to be and on time.
 
What I need to hear:

1 mc cafferty at qb.

2 an under center, run the damn ball on first and goal at the two yard line until you score.

Absolutely this!

Frost stated early on that he wanted an offense with a blend of his UCF/Oregon pace and explosiveness along with the Husker Power Football game. I hope that he is still going to strive for that... but it doesn't look like he has... especially in short yardage situations (and in general).
