Kedon rushed 8 times yesterday for -1 yards. TrojanDrive Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 287 Likes Received: 342 Oct 13, 2019 #1 I'm not criticizing him at all. He was running to keep plays alive but if we only net -1 yards then many of those 8 plays are wasted. Ok, granted, maybe a couple of those runs kept a scoring drive alive. In contrast, Ian Book's 12 carries netted 49 yards and 1 TD which is a good return on investment. I bring this up to illustrate our coaching idiocy. Stepp averaged 8.2 yards a carry but only got 10 carries. Just think if he got the ball 10-15 more times in this game. It makes no sense to run a QB 8 times while at same time only giving Steppe 10 carries. There are a finite amount of offensive plays a team gets in a game. It's crucial to maximize return by putting the ball in the right places as much as possible. If I were paid millions to coach a game, I would make sure I understood the strategic and analytic aspects forwards and backwards. There is no excuse for Steppe to have gotten just 10 carries. Harrell is so busy running his so called "Air Raid" genius plays that he misses the obvious tactic right in front of his nose. Last edited: Oct 13, 2019 crank31 likes this.
