So the theory is booster involvement at the big money level is bad and at the smaller level is good? We should get every booster to pay a certain amount every year and promote it as a club of sorts with a nonsensicalbut catchy name. Doesn't have to be a lot to make a big difference in our bottom...
There is no objective evidence that any team in the ACC is actually any good this year. Probably a side effect of having one of, if not the, worst TV deals of any P5 conference. It's a revenue problem, really.
1) Our team cannot stay focused and finish strong. It is insanely frustrating to watch the chunk plays we gave up today, but it's also the empty drives when it's time to demonstrate a killer instinct. We need to find a way to get that instinct, because it's cost us 1 loss already...
Well, he was considering taking a job at USCe last off-season, so you can read between the lines about how he feels about some things. He wasn't a great OC, though, so I'm not sure how much weight to place on certain thoughts of his.
No, I don't think it's scheme either. From what I saw on the tape at Temple and Sims last year is a bunch of risky throws/misreads. Makes me think there's a practice emphasis on getting the ball out on time as opposed to ball security (yes, you can go too far the other way on this one as well)...
Things I'm positive about:
1) Transfers on DL and LB - should be able to execute scheme more effectively with these guys.
2) Pass rush improvement - videos from camp show a level of explosiveness and focused violence that I just haven't seen previously
3) RB - self explanatory
Agreed. Looking back:
- 2003 thru 07 we were ~20 ppg
- 2008 we were 22.1 ppg
- 2009 thru 16 we were ~26 ppg, with the exception of 2012 where we were 30.2 ppg
- 2017 onwards is a regression that is statistically appalling tbh.
Assuming we don't get back to 2009, 2014, 2016 offensive output, I...
